Spoilers: What Actresses Will Be Doing In The Amazon Test Scenes

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…

Yes, TV Amazon’s Name Is “Diana”

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…

Wonder Woman TV Update: The CW & Warner Bros. Casting An Amazon – Meet “Iris?”

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.”

Podcast Review Of The Actual Wonder Woman Pilot

Talk about being in the right place at the right time.

Scott Carelli happened to be at Universal Studios when he was brought in to screen a TV show pilot that’s in contention for Fall 2011 airing. At first, he thought it was something like House, before realizing that it was the Wonder Woman plilot.

Turns out Scott is also involved with Geekshow Entertainment, and he just recorded a podcast where he talks about what he thought of the pilot. You can listen to the show here.

What did he think?

NBC President Robert Greenblatt Reveals That We Will See Wonder Woman In Shorts

In a short new interview at TVLine, NBC president Robert Greenblatt reveals that the new TV Wonder Woman (Adrianne Palicki) will have multiple costumes.

Beware of spoilers!

There was an initial outcry about the long pants – you know, skintight pants as opposed to those little shorts [worn by Lynda Carter in the original TV series],” Greenblatt told TVLine. “But the shorts were always planned. They are actually used in the final confrontation when she beats Veronica Cale (played by Elizabeth Hurley).”

The alternative costume seen on Hollywood Blvd. was apparently always part of the plan, he said. “We haven’t made any changes from what was planned,” he assured. “But it’s always good to hear the feedback. I’d rather have people really passionately engaged in conversation, even if they hate something, than be kind of bored.”

Greenblatt is aware of some criticism the leaked pilot script got online, but he still sounds confident. “There’s always critiques of everything,” he said. “If we listen to all of that, we would probably never be able to get the job done. David’s a great writer… and I actually think he’ll bring an intelligence to [the show] that other … writers might not. I think it’s going to be interesting to see it cut together.” As for the finished product, what are the chances of Wonder Woman landing on our TV screens this Fall?

“I’ve been doing this long enough to know that nothing is a safe bet,” he told TVLine. “Even with the best of intentions and the best people, you just don’t know until you see it finished – and we’re a few weeks away from that. But it’s been getting a lot of attention. A lot.”

NBC will unveil their Fall 2011 lineup in May.
