Back in November. we reported that The CW Network is searching for an actress to play Diana Prince in their Wonder Woman pilot Amazon. Today, network president Mark Pedowitz revealed that they are still casting the role
"We're waiting to see the script and are busy casting Diana."
"I have not seen David's project [but] this is an origination story [like] Smallville."
Allan Heinberg wrote the pilot script. Here is a description of Diana Prince from our report in November.
"She comes from a remote, secluded country and until now has spent most of her life as a soldier and a leader on the battlefield. Because of relentless brutality of her life at home, Iris looks at our world with absolute awe and astonishment. She's delighted and just as often horrified by the aspects of everyday life that we take for granted: skyscrapers, traffic, ice cream. It's all new and fascinating and sometimes slightly troubling to her. Iris is completely unschooled in our world, our culture, our customs. And she's completely inexperienced at interpersonal relationships. She has no social filter, does not suffer fools, and tends to do and say exactly what's on her mind at all times. She's bluntly, refreshingly honest. She can tell when you're lying to her. And she doesn't have time or patience for politics or tact because she's too busy trying to experience everything our world has to offer. There are too many sights to see and things to learn and people to care for. Hers is a true, noble, and generous heart. And she will fight and die for the people she loves. Iris is a fierce warrior with the innocent heart of a romantic and she will fight to the death to make the world safe for innocents and true romantics everywhere."
If the show is picked up to series, it may serve as a solid companion to The CW's other superhero series Arrow, which airs Wednesday nights at 8 PM.
