A new rumor suggests that Warner Bros. Pictures is eyeing Reed Morano to direct their upcoming ‘s Patty Jenkins and Birds of Prey‘s Cathy Yan as the DC movie universe’s female directors. And putting more female-driven superhero projects into development is something that Marvel Studios is starting to do as well, having hired Anna Boden to co-direct Captain Marvel, with Cate Shortland taking on the Black Widow movie.
While the Supergirl movie continues to gestate behind the scenes, DC Films will push forward with production for Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984, as well as start prepping for Todd Phillips’ Joker, Yan’s Birds of Prey, and Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley’s The Flash. Of course, those aren’t the only projects in the works, but they are the only ones with plans to start filming soon. Who knows, it’s possible Supergirl could wind up on that list sooner rather than later.
