Thor 2's Patty Jenkins To Direct Wonder Woman

Patty Jenkins was at one time lined up to direct Thor 2, but in similar circumstances, left the Marvel movie over creative differences.
THR reports Jenkins has closed the deal for Wonder Woman with Warner Bros.
It's said WB and Jenkins need to movie pretty fast to keep up with the 2017 Wonder Woman release date. As far as the script goes, it was previously said that MacLaren was heavily involved in its shaping, so it remains to be seen whether or not Jenkins will need to retool the script or even start over from scratch.
Jenkins saw directorial success with her debut movie starring Charlize Theron on Monsters and has done episodes of the AMC hit series The Killing.
Gal Gadot will star as Wonder Woman and be featured in the May 2016 Batman Vs. Superman.
