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.”

Adrianne Palicki: “Politics” Killed Wonder Woman 2011

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…

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!
