The CW, is looking to cast the lead in its upcoming series based on the early days of Wonder Woman, which they have titled Amazon. No surprise, many actresses would jump at the chance to play the Amazon Princess. According to STV, Scottish born actress Amy Manson, is a strong candidate to land the role. They say that she has already had multiple call backs during the audition process.

Manson is no stranger to to television having landed roles on such shows as Torchwood, and Being Human. To clarify she has not got the role yet, however it looks as if she is one of the leading candidates for the job. Just recently CW president Mark Pedowitz talked about the networks desire to get the series going. He even hinted at a possible Amazon Arrow cross over. With the script still in development, its hard to say when exactly we will get an official casting. Make sure you check back here at CBM for the latest on all thing Wonder Woman.

I AM SICK F THIS WONDER WOMAN SHOULD BE ON THE BIG SCREEN AND WB SHOULD DO IT ASAP INSTEAD CW IS MAKING A SERIES OUT OF IT WITH THIS LEAD
CavEl - 1/16/2013, 6:00 AM
More interested in how the suit will look.
Valandil - 1/16/2013, 6:09 AM
Not slutty enough.
Spideyguy94 - 1/16/2013, 6:14 AM
@PatriotsSuperguy dude there using smallville as a template, I doubt we will ever get even get a hint of a costume.

They must be aiming for a young Diana. I bet they're going to make this show like Smallville where its entirely based off what happens long before she develops into her 'super hero' self. Eh. I hate CW's writing, so I couldn't care less.
edwardshiro - 1/16/2013, 6:16 AM
Hahahahaha Good Joke!
WaylonJones - 1/16/2013, 6:17 AM
So they are going for a young Diana, but Manson is 27. That right there is CW logic for you party people.
SageMode - 1/16/2013, 6:22 AM
The WW version of Smallville.....oh well, what can you do, huh?
gambgel - 1/16/2013, 6:24 AM
have seen some pics of her on imdb, and I dont think she's the perfect actress, but who knows, maybe she is really talented and could do a great performance at least
JayJayCAW - 1/16/2013, 6:28 AM
...............no................................
fr0zt - 1/16/2013, 6:33 AM
@Nomis Agreed
ravennpilot - 1/16/2013, 6:34 AM
I remember her from some sci fi show I watched on net flix. I would watch the first ep of this show, but everything on that show seems to be about young people problems it will fail the character.
RScrimgeour - 1/16/2013, 6:38 AM
Worst choice ever. An Amazonian is suposed to be the idea physical speciman of a woman. Amy Mason is beautiful, but by no means an ideal.
Logan276 - 1/16/2013, 6:40 AM
Being Scottish I'm all for a Scottish WW. However, I can't see the CW doing the character justice.
scoobyjas - 1/16/2013, 6:45 AM
I agree with fettastic!

Somebody here suggested Phoebe Tonkin and I agree with that choice! Taylor Cole has a Wonder Woman look too, however she may be a bit too old for the part :-(
UltimaRex - 1/16/2013, 7:01 AM
You keep watching it. They'll keep making it. 10 seasons of Smallvile practically guaranteed this.

And no, Whoever gets cast for Amazon will not be cast as WW in JL.
marvel72 - 1/16/2013, 7:11 AM
amazon,wonder woman in the style of smallville.so what can i expect to see.

-hot babes(maybe)
-crappy acting(definitely)
-crappy writing(definitely)
-crappy directing(definitely)
-crappy production(definitely)
-the return of out of work tom welling(maybe)
-one superpower discovered each season(more than likely)
-low budget effects(definitely)

will i watch,probably with the fast forward button held down & stopped on the so called good bits it might have(ad breaks spring to mind).

could be be worth a laugh,i miss ripping on smallville.

she was also in misfits in series 3
ArtisticErotic - 1/16/2013, 7:19 AM
WAaaaaaaaaay too skinny. Get we get someone who is you know in shape and can act.
TheFirstAvenger97 - 1/16/2013, 7:23 AM
Don't care.
jessepostal - 1/16/2013, 7:30 AM
What's the draw with Wonder Woman besides being eye candy?? I don't get it, I see why it worked in the seventies but today I can't see it working.
woodsy100 - 1/16/2013, 7:31 AM
Where're all the haters complaining about a Scottish actor playing an "American" character. Is the US not out of bed yet?
Ranger14 - 1/16/2013, 7:32 AM
She better start hitting the gym and downing protein shakes. Way too scrawny for an athletic Amazon.
JDUKE25 - 1/16/2013, 7:37 AM
p-a-s-s.........PASS
JDUKE25 - 1/16/2013, 7:37 AM
Wonder Woman needs to be busty and muscular. Any other way is BS.
gambgel - 1/16/2013, 7:40 AM
now THATs a good idea, Welling's Superman appearing later on the season, and on the next one (if there is another) Green Arrow teaming up too.

That would be the very first tv crossover with superheroes

would be a smart move by the network and producers, for sure
Spideyguy94 - 1/16/2013, 7:41 AM
@marvel72 Not all acting on smallville was terrible. Rosenbaum was fantastic as lex even when he got the shittiest of scripts (About 9 out of 10 times). And james marsters was great as brainiac as well. Apart from that yeah smallville sucked ass and completely deafeated it's own premise by season 4.
Number1Wolverine - 1/16/2013, 7:52 AM
Horrible choice :(.
AMAZO1 - 1/16/2013, 7:57 AM
HEY WB. Back in the day wonder woman was okay on tv now years and years have gone. This character needs a damn movie a really violent one as well. Please also get some1 that looks the part as well with good acting ability.
DaddyTuesday - 1/16/2013, 8:14 AM
Jesus! Bring back the shitty pilot Wonder Woman. How can something so easy be done so badly from the first step? Another Catwoman movie in the making me thinks.
Rheynger - 1/16/2013, 8:19 AM
@fettastic
That woman is nasty. Plain and simple. Just image search Amy Manson. She could definitely pull it off. It won't let me post her best photo.
DaddyTuesday - 1/16/2013, 8:19 AM
Gina Carano as Wonder Woman. Just needs some acting lessons and she'd be perfect.
drfate - 1/16/2013, 8:25 AM
Manson's forehead could be the show's main enemy! lol

I don't know anything about this chick's acting chops but she looks nothing like Wonder Woman. More like, I Wonder if she's a Woman.

Now, that Tonia Sotiropoulou is DEFINITELY Wonder Woman material.
Optimus83 - 1/16/2013, 8:50 AM
I WANT WONDER WOMAN MOVIE. ...¡¡¡NOW!!!
johnblake - 1/16/2013, 9:06 AM
What is it with people and scrawny women. Wonder Woman should be between Rhonda Rousey and Beyonce size. No one wants to see these skinny behind chicken heads play wonder woman. Watch they make Wonder Woman like super Skinny with no curves. but shes gona have a pretty face so its gona be ok ffor the public. not for me.
2gold - 1/16/2013, 9:10 AM
Yeah she may have the acting ability, but I don't know. The look is not there, don't think the height is there and don't know about the rest either. It seems like they just asked dark haired women to come in and read.
DrDoom - 1/16/2013, 9:14 AM


Make movie.
avengersfan85 - 1/16/2013, 9:17 AM
GIVE US THE GOD-D@MN MOVIE ALREADY, YOU MONEY HUNGRY, IGNORANT SACKS OF EXECUTIVE CRAP!!!
