Wonder Woman director Michelle Maxwell MacLaren has said the future of the film remains in flux – and there is as yet no release date and no script.

MacLaren, known for Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and The X Files, said the Warner Bros studio has not officially given the DC Comics movie a green light.

"I really, really, really can’t talk about this," she told Vulture.

"I just picture a drone coming in over the hills and crashing through the glass and flying over here and putting duct tape over my mouth, you know?"

Maclaren was signed on to direct the film, starring Gal Gadot in the lead role, last month. She will be the first female director of a mainstream comic book movie in a long time – Patty Jenkins came close to directing 2013’s Thor: The Dark World but left to be replaced by Alan Taylor.

Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Charles Roven will be among the film’s producers.

 

And it looks like audiences can look forward to some meticulously choreographed action scenes.

"I approach an action sequence almost like a mathematical problem," MacLaren said.

"Sometimes you get these action sequences that you read and go, 'Oh my God, this is huge, how do I do it?' and I go, 'Just a step at a time. Sit down and plot each piece of it out'."

Gadot will debut her high profile role as the heroine in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Previous reports have said Wonder Woman will debut on 23 June 2017.
