Wonder Woman is going to have to lasso itself another director.

Michelle MacLaren has left the long-gestating project, set to star Gal Gadot as the tiara-rocking DC Comics superhero, E! News confirms.

"Given creative differences, Warner Bros. and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct ‘Wonder Woman' together," the studio said in a statement Monday.

And once again we're left with the question: Why, since the cult-classive 1970s TV series, has it become so difficult to get a mainstream Wonder Woman project off the ground?!

Gadot will still be suiting up in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and is on board for the Justice League movies, should they get off the ground as promised, but MacLaren's exit doesn't bode well for her spin-off into the spotlight.

Warner Bros. is still reportedly shooting for a 2017 release. MacLaren, a veteran of TV whose directing credits include The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, had joined the iflm in November.
