NBC may have already tried (and failed) to bring Wonder Woman to television, but that doesn’t mean the campy CW can’t give it shot.
As opposed to NBC’s failed Wonder Woman pilot, it appears the CW will be telling the origins of the warrior princess in the project now titled Amazon.
Deadline has the first word on what we might expect from the show, as scripts are now being drafted for casting purposes. Get those lassos out, because Deadline’s details of Diana’s description sounds pretty perfect:
“She 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, Diana looks at our world with absolute awe and astonishment. She’s delighted and just as often horrified by the aspects of everyday life that we take for granted: skyscrapers, traffic, ice cream. It’s all new and fascinating and sometimes slightly troubling to her. Diana is completely unschooled in our world, our culture, our customs. And she’s completely inexperienced at interpersonal relationships. She has no social filter, does not suffer fools, and tends to do and say exactly what’s on her mind at all times.”
After exceeding all expectations with bringing other DC Universe superheroes to television (Smallville, Arrow), I think it’s safe to say this Wonder Woman will be good enough to at least get some air time.
I’d totally audition for this role but I’m a couple cup sizes too small.
Watch Amazon’s debut on the CW next fall…or she’ll be coming for you.
