Before we were assured of her big-screen 'Justice League' debut on 2015, Wonder Woman has had a hell of a time getting back into live-action. Not only did the multiple movie plans fall apart, but David E. Kelley's big-budget pilot for an NBC TV series was practically laughed into cancellation. Now, even as The CW eyes its own gritty 'Wonder Woman' reboot to follow through on the success of 'Arrow,' failed TV pilot creator Kelley believes the idea could still work on TV. Does Wonder Woman really have a future on the small screen?
Given the breakaway success of The CW's 'Arrow,' it's not hard to believe that the network might be eager to get its ducks in a row for the potential forthcoming Wonder Woman pilot 'Amazon.' Yesterday we heard that Warner Bros. might be looking to get a jump on casting the titular heroine for one reason or another, but are you ready to see what The CW has in mind? Does 'Amazon' feature Wonder Woman as we know her, or someone else altogether?
Earlier this year we'd heard that The CW was looking to expand its array of super-powered heroines (and DC characters) by developing a Wonder Woman-based series titled 'Amazon.' Focusing on the character's teen years as Diana, the script has yet to recieve an official pilot order from The CW, but that hasn't stopped Warner Bros. from beginning the casting process for the titular Amazonian princess! Who might the studio have in mind?
When NBC announced in 2010 that it was moving forward with a pilot of David E. Kelley's live-action 'Wonder Woman' TV series with Adrianne Palicki in the role, fan reaction was mixed at best. Between questions of the characters goofiness, and an outfit and pilot that certainly didn't help matters, it's no wonder NBC ultimately passed on the series. But with The CW's own Wonder Woman adaptation 'Amazon' on the horizon, what does comic media mogul and one-time 'Wonder Woman' prospect Joss Whedon have to say on the matter?
From the moment 'The CW' announced that it would develop yet another series based off of DC characters, fans everywhere wondered if the Green Arrow adaptation 'Arrow' would play host to DC comics guest stars in the way 'Smallville' once had. Even before its October 3 premiere, 'Arrow' has both lined up its own roster of DC characters, as well as specified their intent to avoid larger, super-powered characters. Still, with the announcement of a Wonder Woman series in the works for The CW, could we see the 'Amazon' superhero cross paths with Oliver Queen after all?
With all the rumblings surrounding the news that the CW is working on developing a new Wonder Woman TV series a la 'Smallville,' the big question is: who will portray the lasso-swinging future Amazon heroine? Here's our pick for the five actresses who would be fit to fill Lynda Carter's shoes on the small screen.
Here we go again, folks. Just when you thought that David E. Kelley's 2011 'Wonder Woman' reboot at NBC had officially laid the character to rest among the TV landscape, The CW is looking to summon their own version of the classic DC superhero for an hour-long drama. But will the new Wonder Woman be Diana of Themyscira as we know her, or a new modern take akin to 'Smallville' or the upcoming 'Arrow?'
The CW's forthcoming Green Arrow adaptation 'Arrow' has been on a bit of a casting spree lately, most recently casting DC superhero The Huntress for a multi-episode stint in the series' first season. Huntress joins a number of other DC characters present to tangle with Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen, including Deadshot, China White and Deathstroke the Terminator, but what of DC's most recognizable characters? Which four is the series swearing off, and why?
Back in 1967, flush with the success of his campy 'Batman' TV series, producer William Dozier decided to try his hand at bringing Wonder Woman to the screen. The results were...well, now you can get a look at it yourself.
Whether you miss the days of Max Fleischer cartoons or even Bruce Timm's take on the DC Universe, there's no shortage of celebrity buzz surrounding voice castings for DC superheroes. And now where Susan Eisenberg, Keri Russell, and Lucy Lawless herself have donned the animated tiara before, now another woman warrior is set for Wonder Woman.
