Gal Gadot will be Wonder Woman in the new sequel to Man of Steel, but the last time anyone saw a Wonder Woman in live action, and the reason this website was created in the first place, was actress Adrianne Palicki.

Palicki played Diana Prince/Wonder Woman/Diana Themiscyra (don’t ask) in the ill-fated Wonder Woman pilot for David E. Kelley in 2011 that did not go beyond the pilot stage. Despite the pilot not hitting the air and getting a critical drubbing from fans who were able to see it, Palicki is upbeat about the experience.

While there is no new news to share about Wonder Woman returning to TV with a new series somewhere, we do have confirmation that a good Wonder Woman series will be hitting Me-TV this December!

The CW has not given up on Wonder Woman.

The WW TV project, which we assume is still called Amazon, is going through the process of redevelopment, this time with another writer, Aron Eli Coleite of Heroes fame.

You can read more details, including some words from The CW’s Mark Pedowitz, here.

The CW Wonder Woman pilot Amazon has been “rolled into next season,” according to Deadline.

The article does say that Amazon “remains a high priority” for the network, who have had some patience with projects from other development cycles before. And hey — better they take their time with things than to do it when it’s not quite right.

The CW does have some interesting projects lined up including The Tomorrow People. You can read about those at our general TV site, KSiteTV.

UPDATE: THR‘s outlook is a bit rosier, saying the show still has a possibility for Fall 2013, midseason, or Fall 2014. TV Line is also getting more optimistic, saying that their sources tell them an updated script has yet to come in so it’s still “technically a contender.” But as for right now, The CW has picked their 8 pilots…

At the recent Television Critics Association press tour, The Hollywood Reporter‘s Lesley Goldberg caught up with David E. Kelley, the writer/executive producer behind the 2011 Wonder Woman TV pilot for NBC, where he admitted that the pilot, as it was, was not perfect.

“We made mistakes with ours,” he said. “My only regret is we were never given a chance to correct them. We had a lot that was right about it and a great cast. In time, we could have fixed what we had done wrong, we just didn’t get that chance.”

He is, however, happy that The CW is giving Wonder Woman another go, possibly, with Amazon. “I’m sad we didn’t get to do it but I do believe it can work for The CW. They’re smart to try it,” he said to the Hollywod Reporter. He also would be willing to try it again, if The CW take does not work. “I would. It’s different for me, it’s a genre that I have a lot to learn about,” he said. “At this point in your life, everybody should do something that they’re scared of; I was a little scared of it, I remain a little scared of it and be happy to wade into the fear again.”

So we’ve seen casting breakdowns, we’ve heard that “Iris” is indeed “Diana,” but you want some more info on The CW and Warner Bros.’ proposed Wonder Woman project Amazon, right?

We’ve gotten a hold of a casting side that reveals that two test scenes for Diana — labeled here as “Iris” — mostly involves her and a pilot who has a mechanical failure that puts him on her island, named “Pete”… though we know that is really code for “Steve Trevor.”

In the first scene — which may or may not be part of the actual pilot, should it even be filmed… Steve Trevor has landed, and his hands and feet are cuffed by a chair as Diana tries to figure out his intentions. She notices he has a weapon, and accuses him of being a terrorist, or even a diversion or harbinger of an invasion of men.

In another scene, Diana and Steve are at a diner, we assume in Man’s World, and are a lot more friendly. There, Diana has her first taste of ice cream, in a very cute sequence.

If anything, this information should probably confirm that there is a Diana/Steve dynamic at the heart of this project as well as the fish-out-of-water elements we’ve heard of so far. It might also be safe to assume that the studio might be looking for “Steve Trevor” and chemistry with the lead actress while they’re at it. Stay tuned…

Looks like we don’t have to worry about “Iris.” DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns has confirmed that if Amazon should happen, it will indeed be Diana.

Here was his Tweet from this morning:

“If a WW show happens her name is of course DIANA. Codenames (like IRIS) are used in casting a lot to try and avoid speculation.”

That speculation happened anyway, apparently. But now we can breathe a sigh of relief and be excited by what is otherwise and hopefully a great concept…

Deadline tonight had what could be a big scoop – a casting breakdown for the WB/CW Wonder Woman TV project, Amazon. Casting directors are looking for tall actresses (5’8″ or higher). But that’s not the weird part. The breakdown calls for a character named “Iris.” We are hoping this is code for “Diana Prince,” and that the studio and the network just put in “Iris” as a placeholder.

Otherwise, a Wonder Woman named Iris sounds about as interesting as a Catwoman named “Patience Phillips.”

In a new interview with Crave Online, Adrianne Palicki talked briefly about the 2011 Wonder Woman pilot. It’s one of the first times she’s really spoken about it, and she says she was “proud” of how it turned out.

“I was so grateful to get to play Wonder Woman,” she said. “That was a childhood dream of mine and I’m proud of the outcome. I do wish it would have gone to series but everything happens for a reason. Looking at it as a positive, I got to work with some amazing actors, [an] amazing writer and I got to wear the outfit. It was not comfortable but it was totally worth it.”

Wonder Woman not getting picked up was “shocking” for the actress. “There were obviously politics involved,” she says. “It had gotten picked up as far as I knew so when we got that call it was incredibly shocking. We were set up to go to Jimmy Kimmel and everything else so it was a real shock. It was hard to take at first.”

Politics, or the pilot just not being very good? Realistically, Adrianne…

You can read Adrianne’s full interview at Crave Online. Let’s hope Amazon, if it should happen, has some better luck…

Wonder Woman might get another shot at television, and it might happen with creative people and a network that should have been behind it in the first place.

News comes in from Josef Adalian at Vulture that former Wonder Woman comic writer Allan Heinberg is developing a script for The CW with the working title Amazon. Of course, no pilot production has been greenlit or guaranteed — and certain other DC-based projects have been announced at the script progress and have never gone further. The Vulture piece insists that “no pilot production has been greenlit or even contractually guaranteed.” Like Smallville, Amazon sounds like a Diana Prince/Wonder Woman origin story so it might not be as … costumey as the 2011 pilot had been.

Stay tuned for more details when and if they become available… and hopefully they will. Perhaps this site will have an excuse to still exist, after all!
