The CW Network is slowly building a stable of DC Comics superheroes, with their hit series Arrow performing well and a spin-off centering on Grant Gustin's The Flash character in the works. However, fans will not be seeing Wonder Woman on the network anytime soon, with network president Mark Pedowitz revealing today that their Amazon pilot is currently dead.
"We did not move forward with it."
The project was first announced in September 2012, with Allan Heinberg writing the pilot script that focused on Diana of Themyscira's origin story as a younger woman. Last January, the network put the pilot on hold, for a possible debut during the 2014-2015 TV season. The last we heard about the project was in July, when Mark Pedowitz said the project was still on hold because the script wasn't quite right.
While the network has given up on this particular project, that doesn't mean they wouldn't be open to another Wonder Woman project in the future.
"It all depends on the script. We were very careful with Arrow and we're being very careful with The Flash. These are iconic characters so we're going to be very careful with Wonder Woman. You only get one shot before you get bit."
Wonder Woman fans will get to see Gal Gadot portray the character on the big screen next summer in Batman Vs. Superman, which will likely lead into her appearance in the superhero ensemble Justice League.
