Deadline brings word, in a story unrelated to the DC Cinematic Universe, that Gal Gadot will be suiting up as Diana Prince for her solo Wonder Woman film later this year as production will begin in the fall.
“Breaking Bad” and “The Walking Dead” director Michelle MacLaren will helm the upcoming movie, which features a script by Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift, the upcoming Pan). Gal Gadot will make her first cinematic appearance in 2016′s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Recent rumors have suggested that, as a franchise, Wonder Woman is being targeted for development as a trilogy with the first film planned to take place in the 1920s, revealing Themyscira’s first encounter with the outside world and Wonder Woman’s own experiences with a USA that still had a lot to learn about equal rights.
Wonder Woman is set for release on June 23, 2017 with Justice League Part One to follow on November 10, 2017.
