And luckily David E. Kelley has nothing to do with it this time. A little less than a year after NBC buried Kelly’s terrible Wonder Woman pilot comes word from Vulture that CW is looking to add the Amazonian princess to its roster of superhero based TV shows. Reportedly being developed by Allan Heinberg (Grey’s Anatomy, The O.C. with some comic book cred as creator of Marvel Comics Young Avengers) under the working title of Amazon, it apparently will be more ‘Wonder Woman Begins’ than any of the previous small screen outings for the character.
“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.)”
I guess that is an ok plan. Actually, scratch that, it is a terrible plan. While Smallville had its fans, it always seemed stupid to me that they dragged the cape hate to long, not to mention all that ‘The Blur’ silliness. Why can’t they just have a superhero suit up like they are suppose to, He’s GREEN Arrow, damn it. GREEN!
…but I digress.
As Vulture points out, the CW is just developing a script. No pilot has been ordered and its far to early to speculate that one even would be. The question is though, how does this affect Warner Bros. plans to bring WW to the big screen or the characters involvement in the apparently still happening Justice League movie?
