The CW Eyes Wonder Woman Origin Tale
The CW is developing a new script based on the female superhero’s early years, Vulture reports. Allan Heinberg (Grey’s Anatomy) is penning the project, tentatively titled Amazon.
The new Warner Bros. TV/DC Comics venture reportedly will be about her origins in the same way Smallville followed Superman’s high school days. (The late-’70s series The New Adventures of Wonder Woman, starring Lynda Carter in the title role, chronicled WW as an adult.)
Before you take a victory lap into your invisible jet, remember that the project is only in its script phase, and there hasn’t been any pilot commitment thus far.
Our advice: This new Wonder Woman better start invoking her bracelets’ protective powers now. NBC ultimately passed on David E. Kelley’s much buzzed-about Wonder Woman pilot (starring Friday Night Lights’ Adrienne Palicki) last year, and a Joss Whedon-helmed project about Diana of Themyscira never came into being.Follow @kimroots
