2017’s Wonder Woman movie won’t just be the first major female-led superhero movie, it may end up being directed by a woman as well. While one of the Punisher movies had a woman director, and Elektra was a thing at one point, all eyes are on the current iterations of the Marvel and DC cinematic universes to bring a woman director and a female superhero to the big screen.
Buried in an article about all of the upcoming superhero movies, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Warner is pursuing a female director:
Warners also is opting for strong directors, tapping David Ayer (Fury) for Suicide Squad and seeking a female helmer for Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.
There are a lot of rumors out there about who Warner is looking at, but nothing concrete just yet from the Hollywood trades.
