For those wondering about what she's written before, she has 1 writing credit on Imdb for a Tv movie - "A Song from the Heart."


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. smile

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.

Agreed. MacLaren is a good choice.

I liked the episodes of Breaking Bad she directed. Hence I am excited.

I think that's a fair thought process.

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.

I don't think she's going to write the bulk of it, though. Like I said earlier, she has a whole writing team that has been unannounced. If she was writing it by herself that might be a little iffy.

the fact she has never directed anything longer than 20 minutes and if WW fails it probably ends plans for a continued long term cinematic universe.

Some have been pointing out that might be in her favor. It's more challenging directing something smaller vs something that is 110 minutes or so.

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.

Nah, it has been stated in books like Films for Dummies and this guys (Bollywood director) opinion as well:

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. stick out tongue 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.

thumb up

I'm really glad and relieved her Solo movie is coming before JL. Not long before (the same year) but still I'll happy about that!

Sure, it's just an insane claim.

Minimal cultural impact or impact on the genre.

More or less no acclaim.

Lukewarm reception.

Weak box-office.

Needs a series to make any sense.

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

a) Critically acclaimed

b) Garners a fanbase

c) Pulls off the box office

d) has any impact on the super-hero movie genre

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.

That's good because it means WB/DC are likely committed to their slate up until JL no matter how good or bad BvS and Suicide Squad perform at the box office.
