Let the casting search begin! A couple of months ago, we reported that The CW was in early development on AMAZON, a prequel that will focus on the teenage life of WONDER WOMAN. Today, Warner Bros. Television has hired a casting director to launch a search for the female lead, in anticipation of a potential pilot pickup. With a story by Allan Heinberg, AMAZON will chronicle the female superhero’s life as a young Amazonian, before she becomes a warrior princess with super powers. According to the character breakdown obtained by Deadline Hollywood, her name is Iris with the details regarding said character described as follows:

"[Iris] 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."

The CW is having its biggest hit in years this fall with ARROW, a show about a DC superhero so the network’s desire to try to emulate that success with another comic book-inspired franchise is understandable. The script is currently being written and while no shortlist of actresses have been revealed, who would you like to see AGAIN bring the Amazonian to the small screen? Anyone remember Adrianne Palicki's recent attempt at portraying the character over at NBC?? - Entertainment Weekly, Deadline Hollywood

    The thread title needs to be changed to Amazon though as not to be confused with David E. Kelley's failed NBC project.

    I strongly agree with you! I wouldn't want a girl named Iris to be the "Amazon Princess", HELL NO!

    Don't tell me pareho yung gagawin nila dun sa Arrow, grounded to reality thingy. Parang ang hirap naman nun sa case ng WW. She's the Amazon Princess from Thymiscyra, daughter of Hippolyta! She has a magic lasso and tiara and boots and gauntlets!!!

    Sana gawin nila ito ng tama! :hopeless: :hopeless:
