Details On CW's WONDER WOMAN Adaptation AMAZON

This one's a bit of a head-scratcher. Some things sound right but others are 'oh so wrong' in this description of the CW'S take on DC Comics premiere superheroine, Wonder Woman. Show to follow 'young Amazonian before she becomes a warrior princess with super powers.'

Before you get your pitchforks and torches, I must preface this latest development with the fact that this info stems from a casting search so this isn't an official description of the show but more of a description of the tone producers are hoping to find in their lead. Still, I imagine this will not go over well with hardcore comic book enthusiasts, especially the notion that the show "chronicles [the] female superhero’s life as a young Amazonian, before she becomes a warrior princess with super powers."

According to the breakdown I’ve obtained, her name is 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.”

The positives--
1.)The network is looking for actresses in their mid 20's 5'-8" and taller.
2.)The description for what is presumably Themyscira sounds about right.
3.)The personality of Diana Iris sounds ROUGHLY correct.

The (shall we say) polarizing aspects---
1.) Is her name really going to be Iris?
2.) Unclear at this point whether she'll actually have super powers. (There's already a superhero on the CW w/o powers)
3.) 'She will fight to the death to make the world safe for innocents and true romantics everywhere'. (What does that mean?)

But keep in mind the show is still very early in the development stages and just about anything could change. It's worth noting here that Arrow had a lot of skeptics before the pilot aired and it's turned out to be a great series so far.
