'Arrow' fans and the DC community fanbase at large have barely begun processing the recent news of a Batman/Superman crossover on the big screen, let alone that the Flash will now be introduced in the CW's Green Arrow series, and potentially spun off into his own series.

While The CW has begun setting its fall schedule and issuing trailers for its 2013-14 offerings, many were left wondering whatever became of the network's Wonder Woman reboot pilot 'Amazon,' which last we heard had begun casting and working on the script.
