After a ten season run with Smallville -an origin tale for DC Comic powers house Superman- it isn’t too shocking to find CW will be milking WB for any superhero they can get their hands on. Now joining the ranks of Superman and the upcoming Green Arrow project titled Arrow is Wonder Woman in the upcoming show Amazon….
After attempting to recapture Wonder Woman’s previous television success with the late 1970’s show starring lynda Carter as the amazonian princess by making another tv pilot starring Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki, DC/Warner Brothers were laughed off the internet by fans and critics alike; which caused NBC, who ordered the pilot, to pass on picking it up. People have not shied away from making their hopes heard that they expect Wonder Woman would make it onto the big screen during this golden age of comic book movies. Sadly, these ideas have been ignored while CW have decided to attempt another television series only a year after the last failed attempt.
The news was broken by the ever reliable Vulture, who revealed the shows title, Amazon (named after the place said hero will be raised, a la Smallville) along with other details such as these: “will focus on Wonder Woman as a young, budding superhero, rather than a fully formed defender of liberty.”
The script will be written by Michael Goldenberg, who wrote DC/WB other high profile superhero disaster, 2011’s Green Lantern, along with the more successful Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix.
