AMAZON: CW Are Hunting For Their WONDER WOMAN; Show Compared To SMALLVILLE
Talking today at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, network president Mark Pedowitz has offered an update on the progress of Amazon, revealing that it will tell Diana's story in a similar way to how Smallville told Clark Kent's. He also offers some casting news...
"We’re waiting to see the script and are busy casting Diana," CW President Mark Pedowitz told journalists today when asked about how work on Amazon is progressing. While he didn't reveal who the network are currently considering for the role, he did shoot down any buzz that The Vampire Diaries' Phoebe Tonkin is set to play the iconic DC character: "We haven’t thought about her in terms of Wonder Woman." As for whether or not the series will share any DNA with the ill-fated pilot from David E. Kelley, Pedowitz was quick to also shoot down any talk of that too. "I have not seen David’s project [but] this is an origination story [like] Smallville]." Of course, that can either be taken as very good or very bad news. The first five seasons of Smallville made for great viewing, but it's hard to imagine that anyone wants to spend a decade waiting for whoever ends up in this role to suit up for all of about 10 seconds! Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.
