An interesting day for women in superhero movies
This morning, director Bryan Singer announced via Instagram that (former Daily Show correspondent and fake financial analyst on HBO's The Newsroom) Olivia Munn will be playing Psylocke in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse.
And now the news has just broken that DC has lost its Wonder Woman director, Michelle MacLaren. McLaren has directed episodes of Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, but left 2017's Wonder Woman citing "creative differences." Don't feel too bad for her, though: she's currently rumored to be offered Captain Marvel.
Whew! It's been a busy afternoon. And you thought the books were the only ones that changed things all the time!
