Once again proving that people in Hollywood don’t understand Wonder Woman, the CW has officially announced that they are no longer developing a Amazon, the proposed Wonder Woman television series (according to The Hollywood Reporter).
“It all depends on the script. We were very careful with Arrow, and we’re being very careful with Flash,” [Mark] Pedowitz [CW’s president] said of the Stephen Amell series and Grant Gustin Flash pilot in the works at the network. “These are iconic characters, so we’re going to be very careful with Wonder Woman. You only get one shot before you get bit.”
No matter how often it is explained to me, I will never fully comprehend why it is so hard for people to get Wonder Woman right. Ah well. Better no TV series than an awful TV series.
I can’t say I’m surprised, though. Adding Wonder Woman to the cinematic universe made it that much more likely she would not be involved in any television shows.
