If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
After the David E. Kelley Wonder Woman pilot from 2011 failed to earn a slot on television, DC is back at it this time at CW with a prospective WW-centric series titled Amazon. The news broke a few months back, listing former Wonder Woman comic writer Allan Heinberg a veteran of TV shows like Grey's Anatomy in line to shepherd the project to the small screen. If successful, this would be the third in a string of CW series to be based on DC characters that used stylized titles like Smallville and Arrow.
Heinberg is currently working on the pilot script, with casting directors currently hunting for an ideal woman to play the lead character. The casting sheet listed the main character's name as "Iris," causing a fervor amongst fans who thought they were changing Wonder Woman, who's named "Diana" in the comics. Heinberg piped up on Twitter to say that the name Iris was mere subterfuge to try to sneak the casting call under the radar of prying fanboy eyes. According to the casting sheet, this Wonder Woman comes from a remote, secluded country and until now has spent most of her life as a soldier and a leader on the battlefield. Because of relentless brutality of her life at home, Iris looks at our world with absolute awe and astonishment.
The description has Amazon positioned to show Wonder Woman as a bit of a fish out of water when she comes to America, taking advantage of the unique scenario provided by the character's origins. There's no word yet who will be cast for the title role or other supporting players, but this could very well be coming your way sooner rather than later.
