According to reports, Universal has hired Game of Thrones director Michelle MacLaren to helm the film, which has Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt attached.

It was only a few days ago when Warner Bros. and Michelle MacLaren parted ways on Wonder Woman. It was not the first time that a female director left a blockbuster superhero film citing creative differences.

The studio needed to act quickly to find a suitable replacement, and it didn’t take them that long to find one, as a new THR report says that Patty Jenkins has signed on as MacLaren’s replacement. More after the jump.

Just when it started to look like Warner Bros.’ DC Cinematic Universe was starting to come together, it loses one of its directors. Last week, we reported on rumors that The LEGO Movie directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord may direct The Flash, while the studio was considering making an offer to James Wan (Furious 7) to direct Aquaman. Green Lantern and Shazam were some of the other films that would need to find directors as well. But one film we haven’t heard from was Wonder Woman.

Since last November, the only major development revealed was that Pan writer Jason Fuchs was writing the script. Now, it appears that the WB will have to search for a new director, as Michelle MacLaren is stepping down citing “creative difference” as her reason for leaving the high-profile project.

Things are starting to shape up for Wonder Woman. Last week Michelle MacLaren landed the job of directing the film starring Gal Gadot as the title character. Her next task was to find a suitable writer to pen the script. And it looks like she may be close.

THR says that Pan screenwriter Jason Fuchs is now in talks to rewrite the script. Fuchs would work with MacLaren on the drafts. It’s unknown how drastic these rewrites will be considering we don’t know much about the film itself. We do know that Wonder Woman will make her big-screen debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But as to what the film could be about, it could be a variety of things, and with the rumors swirling around the Internet, we won’t know until the studio makes an official announcement. More after the jump.

Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 13 Review

Breaking Bad
Season 5, Episode 13 – “To’hajiilee”
Directed by Michelle MacLaren
Written by George Mastras
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Laura Fraser, and Jesse Plemons
AMC
Air date: September 8, 2013

Full-on spoilers for this week’s action-packed Breaking Bad are below. You’ve been warned.

In his mind, the only thing that kept Walter White (Bryan Cranston) from fully descending into hell was a Batman-esque, one-premise code: Family was off-limits. For so long, Jesse (Aaron Paul) was considered family that Walt could never imagine sending him to Belize. He fought hard and long to make sure that Jesse ended up safe, but after last week’s episode that rule was broken and all bets were off. Jesse has always been far smarter than anyone ever gave him credit for and uses this to his advantage. I was half right last week when I said that Jesse would come for Walt at the car wash. So much of Walt’s motivation to cook was always about the money. There’s no way all that green would disappear.

Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 10 Buried Review

Breaking Bad
Season 5, Episode 10 – “Buried”
Directed by Michelle MacLaren
Written by Thomas Schnauz
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Laura Fraser, and Jesse Plemons
AMC
Air Date: August 18, 2013

What would you do if you were Skyler White?

Considering the fact that she acted for so long as a barrier for Heisenberg’s natural progression and evolution, I can understand much of the audience not being a Skyler White fan. It’s almost by design in that aspect, as we’re conditioned to not liking her character because she’s against our “hero.” At that early stage, it was mostly because she’s the one stopping Walter (Bryan Cranston) from becoming more a badass.

But there are so many moments in Breaking Bad episode “Buried” that remind me that Skyler White (Anna Gunn) is doing the best job that she possibly can. Like Skyler, Hank (Dean Norris) and Marie (Betsy Brandt) have been affected by Walt’s cancerous decisions, but they could claim ignorance and continue. Skyler isn’t as lucky, having taken a pledge to protect this family from the man who protects this family. She’s just as buried in the business as Walt is, a fact that Marie hauntingly came to realize in an incredible standout moment for these two sisters.

I was not impressed with “Second Sons.”

There’s normally a point each season that I reach with Game of Thrones, where one of the later episodes in the season becomes just too predictable or flat out boring. The latter certainly isn’t the case, as there are plenty of individually strong moments throughout the episode, but the sum of the parts doesn’t work to something I’m excited about. Which is sad, all things considered, because the strong parts in this episode are good. So let’s start with the good.
