The CW Pushes The AMAZON Pilot Back Until Next Season

After some recent casting rumors, it seemed that CW's interpretation of Wonder Woman before she was a hero, titled Amazon, was picking up steam. Now, it would appear as if The CW has decided against moving forward with the TV show this season and will wait until next season to shoot it.

A couple weeks back we got some news that Amy Manson was the front runner to land the roll of Diana Prince, AKA Wonder Woman, in the upcoming CW pilot titled Amazon. All indications seem to show that the show was moving full steam a head. Now, according to Deadline, the show is at a stand still. Instead of moving forward with the project for this seasons pilot orders the network has made the choice to wait until next season to shoot the pilot.

Amazon was the first pilot that The CW started working on for this season, even starting the casting process back in November. That was before the script was even ready. It just appears that the show was no where near ready to shoot. Given the success of the television show Arrow, which is based on DC's Green Arrow, the network is wanting to make sure they go about handling Amazon just right. As of right now the show is still very high on the priority list for The CW. For the latest on all things Wonder Woman, make sure to check back here at CBM.

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 1/28/2013, 1:10 PM
Warner bros are [frick]ing up so badly its not even funny. Canceling cartoons, making this crap, rushing a JL movie out the same year as Avengers 2. When does the horror end?
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 1/28/2013, 1:11 PM
kill it with fire
SuperPickle - 1/28/2013, 1:11 PM
Again, this just proves how fricking stupid WB execs are. This never should have been green lighted. It's a stupid idea given birth by stupid people.

Big screen, proper treatment, or at least an actual Wonder Woman show executed properly. Themiscyraville sounds retarded. Pull the trigger and lose it altogether.
Pokeysteve - 1/28/2013, 1:11 PM
Hopefully pushed back to rewrite the god awful premise of the show...
Come on WB. When are you going to get your shit together.
ManofSteel23 - 1/28/2013, 1:15 PM
movie please,yes you can get more stories and character development through a tv series,but with JLA comic out (hopefully) in 2 years it would look stupid to have a series with one actor and have her in a movie with a different actor,she needs a big ass movie,it worked for thor,having him come from a strange over worldy place and coming to earth,do it with wonder woman!
SuperPickle - 1/28/2013, 1:16 PM
Oh, and I just looked up Amy Manson.

WTF!?

Girl looks like she barely survived a few years in Auschvitz. No damn way some anorexic little girl can pull off Wonder Woman.
StrangerX - 1/28/2013, 1:17 PM

There is no way they can make this story true to source material.
PsyGuy - 1/28/2013, 1:44 PM
Let's quit the sexism and give Wonder Woman the attention she deserves!

Wonder Woman NEVER WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL! smh I'd they want a Smallville Amazon,.make it Donna or Cassie...NOT DIANA!
dnno1 - 1/28/2013, 2:12 PM
Scottish actress, Amy Manson, is not tall enough to be Wonder Woman.



Now super-model, Amy Manson, is.
MJPETTY7 - 1/28/2013, 2:23 PM
Fine by me.
Minato - 1/28/2013, 2:49 PM
DC/WB has never and will never care about their fans.

DO NOT CAST SOME PRETTY PENCIL TO BE DIANA!!!!!
Optimus83 - 1/28/2013, 2:53 PM
¡¡¡WONDER WOMAN NEEDS A MOVIE!!!. ...¡¡¡NOW!!!
hush - 1/28/2013, 3:03 PM
The woman should be built like an Amazon, not Buffy.

Just stop fart arsing about with Wonder Woman on the small screen and get her on the big screen already.

The animated Wonder Woman movie would have worked on the big screen, I just don't understand what's so difficult about getting it right.

Mind you... Green Lantern...

Just make the [frick]ing movie.
Kjo0212 - 1/28/2013, 4:12 PM
Well with a new CEO this is to be expected and hopefully he will listen to all the screaming fans that are saying movie
cbmf20 - 1/28/2013, 4:14 PM
solo movie or jla, no tv outing
FOOM - 1/28/2013, 4:15 PM
WB isn't stupid. Their execs can smell turkey a mile away.
SugarYumYum - 1/28/2013, 5:05 PM
Well, that inspires confidence... maybe the new CEO told them that they need to be making a movie instead...? Oh who am I kidding. -__-
Pooh - 1/28/2013, 5:09 PM
Normally I'd be very skeptical. But I think in this case the CW would have no shortage of writers who would like to write this show. It might actually be good.

They're waiting to see how Man of Steel does....
unknownfacts - 1/28/2013, 6:20 PM
I'll wait to see a pilot before I say Yay or Nay.People always tend to think things are going to be a flop,but you never know it could supprise you.Though a movie outing for the Amazon Princess would be better though.
Super12 - 1/28/2013, 6:33 PM
There's no question she deserves the silver screen treatment. But I was looking forward to this. I think this is good news, at least if they make it they're taking their time and doing it justice
