Director Michelle MacLaren exits 'Wonder Woman' movie

"Wonder Woman" is down a director.

Michelle MacLaren, a prolific television director known for her work on "Breaking Bad," ''The Walking Dead," and "Game of Thrones," has departed the comic book film and its development due to creative differences, Warner Bros. announced Monday.

MacLaren would have been the first woman to direct a major comic book adaptation in recent years. Patty Jenkins was originally scheduled to direct "Thor: The Dark World," but also departed for creative differences.

Gal Gadot is set to star in the film as the titular character, who will be introduced to audiences first in director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," which bows on March 25, 2015.

No details were given on whether or not MacLaren's exit will impact the 2017 release.
