Paradise Island Will Have To Wait: No Amazon For Fall 2013

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…

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…

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.”

Amazon: Wonder Woman Lives?!?

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!
