Yesterday, it was announced that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Gal Gadot has taken on a key role in the new comedy Keeping Up with the Joneses. With that news came the announcement that her standalone Wonder Woman movie will begin shooting this coming fall. There is no further information about the project, or an exact start date. The movie will be released summer 2017.

Gal Gadot will first appear as Wonder Woman in next March's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is set to pave the way for Justice League Part 1, which also opens in 2017. Gal Gadot has already wrapped her role as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Zack Snyder revealing her in costume at last year's Comic-Con.

Michelle Maxwell MacLaren, known for directing some of the most important episodes of The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, will helm Diana Prince's first ever big screen adventure. Jason Fuchs, who recently penned Pan for Warner Bros., is taking on the script for Wonder Woman. No story details have been revealed at this time, but it's believed the movie will begin in the 1920s, and may skip through various time periods to show that Diana Prince doesn't age. This solo outing is rumored to take place before the events seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

More recent rumors suggest that Warner Bros. is planning a trilogy for Wonder Woman. We will reportedly see her first encounter with the world outside of Themyscira. And if Diana is indeed living life in the USA in the early part of the last century, she will discover that not all people are treated equal, as she leads the fight for equal rights.
