Michelle MacLaren is the frontrunner to direct Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman, according to TheWrap and Latino Review.

MacLaren, best known for directing episodes of The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones, also recently directed an episode of Better Call Saul for AMC. The site reports that the job is hers if she wants it, although formal negotiations may not yet have begun so that could change.

Both Warner Bros. and a representative for MacLaren declined comment for TheWrap's story. Warner, like most studios, typically does not comment on speculation of this sort.

“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe,” said Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyderwho will debut Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in that film before carrying her over toJustice League Part One right after Wonder Woman. “Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”
