WONDER WOMAN is going to be part of the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie which is in scripting stage, so how is CW, WBTV, and DC are going to approach the WONDER WOMAN live action series, titled AMAZON, that they're planning to develop? It was announced this past summer that the project is happening even after David E. Kelley's failed attempt to make her own WONDER WOMAN live action series for NBC Deadline reported that WBTV and CW's WONDER WOMAN series project has a twist..
The twist is that the story focuses on a new iteration of the character, named Iris, NOT Diana. No word on why they chose to do that other than perhaps they're reserving Diana for the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie.
Wait, there's more.. CW and WBTV are now looking to cast an actress for the lead role, specifically mid-20s, 5’8″ or taller. No pilot commitment but it's an origin story scripted by Allan Heinberg, it's about the young amazonian before she becomes a warrior princess with super powers. ARROW has been a success so far for CW, so AMAZON could be their next big hit, and the following is the description of their version of the character: WONDER WOMAN/Iris.
“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, Iris 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. Iris 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. She’s bluntly, refreshingly honest. She can tell when you’re lying to her. And she doesn’t have time or patience for politics or tact because she’s too busy trying to experience everything our world has to offer. There are too many sights to see and things to learn and people to care for. Hers is a true, noble, and generous heart. And she will fight and die for the people she loves. Iris is a fierce warrior with the innocent heart of a romantic and she will fight to the death to make the world safe for innocents and true romantics everywhere.”
What do you think of all this?
