This is not a costume. These are my clothes.
I heard a rumor. I wasn't sure if I wanted to believe it or not. But I checked with some people and my sources say it's happening - a Supergirl TV show.
Faster than a speeding bullet!
"We did not go forward with it," says CW president Mark Pedowitz
of the previously-in-development Wonder Woman origin series Amazon

If you liked it then you should have put a Lantern Ring on it
I feel like if Wonder Woman were real, she'd be like, "Can you stop fussing about a movie? I've got people to save." But she's not real, so we're fussing. Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara
said spoke about the lack of a Wonder Woman movie recently but also touched on the return of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter
property to the big screen and Gravity

"That's the ultimate superhero for a woman. No matter what, no matter who ends up being Wonder Woman someday, I just hope it's something that is done correctly. I know it's there and that it could definitely be done correctly. It's just a matter of getting the right people and having the right vision come together. A director and producer and writer have to see the beauty in it and make it real." Actress and mixed martial artist Gina Carano on the need for a Wonder Woman film.
Carano, who herself would fit the role quite well in many fans minds, weighed in on the discussion as to whether Diana should take to the big screen in an interview with ComingSoon.net. Carano has previously appeared in Fast & Furious 6 and Steven Soderbergh's Haywire. She can soon be seen in In the Blood, a thriller where she plays a woman who must rescue her husband after he disappears during their honeymoon.
Consider the Following
When DC and CW announced that they would pursue a The Flash television series that not only drew on the success of current CW offering Arrow, but took place in the same universe, certain questions arose. If Arrow does take place in the same universe as the new Flash series, how will the show runners deal with the relatively super-powerless world of Arrow? Why did the CW put Amazon, their planned Wonder Woman show, on hold for the new Flash series? Will Arrow and the new Flash show cross over at any point after The Flash gets his own show? Well, two of these questions now have answers, thanks to Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
Holy Rusted Metal Batman!
I think it's safe to say this news couldn't wait for our "While You Were Sleeping" roundup tomorrow.
Things We Saw Today
As you wait for the San Diego Comic Con Agents of SHIELD
panel on Friday, enjoy this new image, which gives away just about as much as the word "classified" would lead us to believe. By the way, did you see the featurette we posted earlier

Okay, so Amazon
isn't dead. But the CW just announced the eight new pilots it'll be producing this season, and according to Deadline's Nellie Andreeva
, the putative Wonder Woman show is not among them.
Late last year we learned The CW was starting to look for an actress
to take on the iconic Wonder Woman show for their series Amazon
. We finally have at least one name to throw out there and it's someone genre fans may be familiar with. Being Human
UK's Amy Manson
star Jaimie Alexander's
name is one that pops up frequently on dream casting for Wonder Woman, and if you saw her kicking butt as Sif, you know why. But while the actress herself would love to play Diana, she's not sure she actually would if asked. Why? Well because no one treats Wonder Woman with respect, of course. Click ahead to see the awesome truths Alexander laid down recently about women in superhero properties.
Even though we're pretty jaded when it comes to Wonder Woman film or television projects, we were hopeful at the prospect
of the CW making plans to produce a new series that would feature a young Princess Diana. Some new details about the show, titled Amazon
, have surfaced including casting details and the character description of its lead - Iris. Wait? Who? Yeah, they're calling Wonder Woman Iris.
If someone was thinking about making a Wonder Woman
show, you would want to know, right? No matter how many times we've been burned? No matter how early in the production it is? No matter if it's just a concept and not a script?
Yeah. I know. I'd want to know too.
Some surprising news from NBC
this weekend: Two weeks after passing on a Wonder Woman show
scripted by David E. Kelly
because the network couldn't afford the character's licensing fee, the National Broadcasting Company has changed it's mind an given the green light to the Amazonian princess.
Apparently two weeks ago, NBC was still going through some internal staff changeups, and didn't have someone who could vouch for a project as big as Wonder Woman. Now that new president Bob Greenblatt
is firmly in charge, the network could firmly commit itself.
In other news, the show might not be about an Amazon. Or a princess.
