Star Sapphire

Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

Wonder Woman is making a comeback on Netflix:

The failed pilot from David E. Kelly, starring Adrianne Palicki, was never finished (thank gawd!) and axed before NBC could further embarrass themselves. However, word around the nerd water cooler is that it may become available on Netfllix.

User robolivera, from the DC Universe/Warner Brothers’ fan forum, posted about how he discovered this potential news:

I was looking for Captain America on Netflix to see what it said about a release date even though it’s not even out in the theaters yet. It has a picture of him with “NR” (Not Released) next to it…Then I searched for Lynda’s WW… It says NR too. BUT it has Adrianne Palicki’s Wonder Woman on there as well with NR next to it!!

He isn’t the only one though, as GloriaofGrayskull from the mattycollector forum also spotted this:

Today I searched for wonder woman on netflix site and it seems like they are going to release the new pilot in dvd I added it to my queve/list of dvds everyone add it so that there is high demand for it!

I think we all want to see the pilot episode, much like how we all just have to stop and look when we pass by a car crash. Morbid curiosity. Do these reports mean we’ll actually get to see it? Don’t get your hopes up. Netflix is notorious for listing shows and movies in advance in order to gauge interest. This is probably just one of those cases. This of course doesn’t mean that the show won’t ever be released as is, or get picked up by another network, or see an eventual release on Netflix. The point is, don’t expect the new “Wonder Woman” pilot/series to be actually available anytime soon.
