While Marvel is inarguably the major leader in superhero films right now, they could stand to take note of DC and Warner Bros.’ latest initiative. The comic book publisher is joining forces with the movie studio to launch DC Superhero Girls, a new directive aimed at young women that will include TV shows, action figures, apparel, books and more. It’s a great new multimedia project that sets a strong precedent that other publishers and studios will follow, if they’re smart.

A little over an hour ago, it was reported that Warner Bros. was seriously considering Angelina Jolie to replace Michelle MacLaren on Wonder Woman. Although she may have been considered, it looks like the studio is going in another direction — WB has hired Patty Jenkins to direct the Wonder Woman solo film, and if that name sounds familiar, that’s because she was originally attached to direct Thor: The Dark World.

It was rumored not long ago that Angelina Jolie was eyeing the Captain Marvel directing gig over at Marvel Studios, but that rumor is now more of a reality as new reports confirm that Jolie is definitely being considered for the job. Not only that, but now that Michelle MacLaren is off Wonder Woman, it looks like Warner Bros. is also interested in having Jolie direct that film. Two female-driven superhero movies enter; only one can leave with Angelina Jolie.

This was a possibility from the beginning, but it doesn’t make the news any less difficult to swallow (or any less infuriating): Michelle MacLaren has departed Warner Bros. and DC’s Wonder Woman movie due to “creative differences,” and it’s not the first time a female director has left a project over such differences in recent memory (remember Patty Jenkins and Thor: The Dark World?).

Last we heard, Warner Bros. hadn’t yet officially given the Wonder Woman solo film the green light, which wasn’t entirely surprising given that a script wasn’t firmly in place. But today brings good news on the Wonder Woman front: shooting will begin this fall for the hero’s upcoming solo adventure, with — as previously confirmed — Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad vet Michelle MacLaren in the director’s chair.
