The CW's Wonder Woman series Amazon is still coming, just not this Fall

As the CW announced their Fall slate of series, one noticeable absence was their Wonder Woman series AMAZON. Nowhere to be seen, many began to wonder if it would suffer the same fate as the David Kelley/Adrianne Palicki NBC series with the awful costume. Don't count it out yet, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The magazine quotes CW head Mark Pedowitz as saying:

“It’s being redeveloped. We don’t want to produce something” that doesn’t do the franchise justice."

AMAZON would follow the success of SMALLVILLE and ARROW in bringing DC heroes to the small screen and tell the story of the teenage years of how Wonder Woman became the hero we are all familiar with. A CW casting call listed the lead as Iris (5’8″ or above) who:

comes from a “secluded country where she was raised as a solider in a brutal environment. Now a stranger in a strange modern big city, she’s a fierce warrior with the innocent heart of a romantic ­ and she will fight to the death to make the world safe.”

WONDER WOMAN has had the most difficult road to the big screen of most superhero properties. Several failed attempts to make it have fizzled. It remains assumed she would be central to Warner Bros. JUSTICE LEAGUE movie, but that all hinges on MAN OF STEEL.
