WONDER WOMAN Series Being Developed By The CW; Will Focus On Diana's Origins

After NBC passed on David Kelly's Wonder Woman pilot last year, The CW network are reportedly planning their own take on the DC Comics character. The story is apparently an origins-based tale, a la Smallville. More details after the jump.



Only a year ago, David E. Kelly unsuccessfully attempted to bring Wonder Woman back to the big screen with his pilot starring Adrianne Palicki. After NBC passed on the pilot, many have been wondering when or if the Amazonian Princess would return to the small screen. Now, with Warner Bros. Pictures slowly working on a big screen feature, Vulture has learned that The CW (who have previously developed Smallville and will launch Arrow next month) are working with Warner Bros. TV and DC Comics for a television series based on Diana of Temyscira, and would focus on Diana's origin story.

Under the working title Amazon, Allan Heinberg (Young Avengers, Grey's Anatomy) is writing this new take on the DC Comics character, who is famously a part of DC's "Trinity" alongside Batman and Superman. Vulture says that the series "will focus on Wonder Woman as a young, budding superhero, rather than a fully formed defender of liberty." Sounds a lot like Smallville to me. The site also says that only a script is being developed right now, and CW have not greenlit a pilot.

As for the planned Wonder Woman movie, the last update we received was back in June, when WB hired writer Michael Goldenberg (Green Lantern, Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix) to pen the script. The movie will likely follow the studio's planned Justice League movie, which may be released in 2015. If Amazon is picked up and a success on The CW, then increased interest in a Wonder Woman film is more or less a given. Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments below.
