Another "Wonder Woman" show now in early development

Being developed by CW.

Our sources say the new take on the comic book crime fighter is being written by Allan Heinberg (Grey's Anatomy, The O.C.) under the working title Amazon. Unlike past TV incarnations, it will focus on Wonder Woman as a young, budding superhero, rather than a fully formed defender of liberty. (Think Smallville, but instead of a "no tights, no flights" rule, this show might have a "no bracelets, no crown" mandate.)
It should be noted that CW is only developing a script at this point; no pilot production has been greenlit or even contractually guaranteed.

Eh, I liked Smallville, but I'm not too fond of the concept in general. I think I'm beginning to appreciate David E. Kelley's WW a bit more now.

Re: Another "Wonder Woman" show now in early development

ugh... god no...

I honestly don't see Wonder Woman doing well on either the big screen or smaller screen... she's just not a hero I can actually see in Live Action shows properly...

Re: Another "Wonder Woman" show now in early development

I'm curious. I would love to see a show focused on a female comic book superhero. Since WW is one of the most recognizable, and has a history in live action TV, it does makes sense that she would be the most likely to get a new show. The fact that the writer has a history with comics, and WW already makes me a little less nervous about this than I was about David E. Kelley's version.

Didn't NBC think about doing a WW show last year too?

Re: Another "Wonder Woman" show now in early development

It depends. If we're talking about a Wonder Woman in her early 20s, I think the idea could work, since that's kind of emotionally where she's at when her story begins anyway.

But if we're talking a 15 or 16 year old WW, then ugh, no. I don't really have any desire to see that.

Why is Warners/DC is trying to copy everything Marvel does now?

First Avengers is a huge hit, Justice League is quickly annouced.

S.H.I.E.L.D is announced as tv show, now they are trying to rush a WW show onto the CW?

I suppose it all hinges on how well Arrow launches.

I fail to see the connection.

The proposed shows are completely different, and, as suggested, the WW series would be a lot closer to a previous CW series.

Re: Another "Wonder Woman" show now in early development

to be honest, i'd rather see DC actually work on some of it's lesser well known characters for TV shows...

A show about Hellblazer, John Constantine... not the movie version, that was atrocious, but the one from the comics would be amazing... it'd sort of be a cross between Supernatural and Tomb Raider...

Or maybe a series dealing with Dr Fate... which could be equally as dark and mystical...

To be perfectly honest, i'm expecting Arrow to fail quite spectacularly...

The Aquaman pilot actually showed some real promise, but died a death quickly as well

This is Warners. They don't care about anything EXCEPT Batman and Superman.

Well, had it actually aired it might have done OK.

Aquaman is a joke character though thanks to Super Friends. I'm still not sure it would have lasted more then one season.

Archers seem to be the IT thing right now with Hawkeye, Katniss from Hunger Games, and Pixar's Brave. The CW might as well strike while the iron is hot.

Constantine, yeah, that could be good. Get someone dark and broody played by an Ian Somerhalder look-alike, and that's right in the CW's wheelhouse.

The CW will do this show for the young female demo, maybe with some young male demo crossover since theyre getting ambitious lately. So adjust your expectations accordingly. Whatever its faults, at least NBC would have maybe done a show for grownups.
