It only took a couple of days of sad–Michelle MacLaren–news fallout for Wonder Woman to land a replacement helmer. The Hollywood Reporter writes that Patty Jenkins, who almost directed Thor 2 and is known for 2003’s Monster, will now be the first woman to lead a major DC project. Warner Bros. will probably receive less flak for letting go of their first female director — but only if they can retain this one, without creative differences being an issue (Jenkins had that problem with Marvel’s Thor). Second time’s a charm?
