You have to start somewhere. Just because she hasn't done a full length feature, doesn't mean she can't do it or we should assume the worst. I don't think WB would take a risk if they didn't think she could do it. If she's smart and talented (which she is) then there is no reason she can't do it.
Would you rate Serenity above the likes of Aliens and Terminator? And you are correct in the sense that Joss Whedon's first movie was a cult classic. At least, IMO. And that was his first movie. I think Michelle will do fine.
In general, probly not. Aliens and Terminator impacted hundreds of millions, catalyzed the evolution of the entire genre and were damn good. Not to say it's better, but Serenity just personally means more to me.
I never said she can't do it or that it can't be amazing or that we should assume the worst. I said it's nothing to jump up and down about at this point given the fact that she's never directed or written a film for the Big Screen before.
Please say you have someone other than Campea's false statement. First she didn't direct entire seasons, secondly she had at best limited creative input and third she isn't even the main tv director... You can want to give her a chance, I'm not against cautious optimism but to be excited for this is baseless.

Regardless of who's directing, I suppose the best thing is that Diana is getting her own feature film at last. Some of us were gnashing our teeth about her appearing in Batman VS. Superman as a clear indication they were going to shortchange her status, as a member of the big trinity. But, she's going to get her own moment in the sun, just like the top members of the Avengers.
So...summer 2017 is going to be very mythologically memorable, with WW in June and Thor: Ragnarok in July!

I wasn't. I told you more movies would come and they did. Like I have stated many times, ever since Kevin Tsujihara came on board, he's been all in with the DC properties.
And they're not even done, according to Neil Gaiman. Supposedly, we'll get more movies announced that are from Vertigo. And more Superman and Batman stand alone movies. Not to mention Del Toro turned in his script for Dark Universe.
I'm sure that it was a great movie for the people who had been pining for a follow up to Whedon's equally lukewarm tv-series, but I don't see what makes this the greatest Sci-fi movie ever made. Nor do I see how its a testament to Joss Whedon's amazing skills as a director.
You liked the movie, and that's great, I'm not trying to deny you that joy. But I don't see how the fact that some untried writer directed a movie that suited your completely arbitrary tastes somehow means that this untried tv-writer will turn Wonder Woman into a movie that is either
I won't dignify a troll with comprehensive response. You're wrong on several accounts, which I'm not getting into.
"untried" writer? Look at his f uckin Filmography you twit. He was showrunner for 3 incredible TV shows and directed plenty of their episodes. Not to mention a script doctor for years, significantly contributing to movies like Toy Story, Speed and Xmen.
I'm not saying the situations are identical, as whedon was hired to direct Avengers primarily because he wrote it. I'm citing it as an example that directors/writers have made successful transitions from television to film. Therefore, it's wrong to assume maclaren can't do the same. Her BB episodes show how talented she is, which is why in mildly enthusiastic.
