The CW is no longer working on a live action Wonder Woman series. According to the Hollywood Reporter, CW president Mark Pedowitz confirmed that Amazon, a Wonder Woman prequel series, has been scrapped, although he stated that the network would be open to trying another project featuring the character later. "These are iconic characters so we're going to be very careful with Wonder Woman," said Pedowitz. "You only get one shot before you get bit."
CW has been markedly careful with its other DC projects. The network's depiction of Green Arrow has been remarkably similar to the comics, with the exception of major changes to his backstory, his villain base, and his views on killing. CW is also developing a Hourman series, with the title character (allegedly) radically different than his comic counterparts. The network is also developing an iZombie series with Rob Thomas, which will probably be brought up as proof that CW didn't scrap Amazon because it's a comic television show starring a woman.
In other Wonder Woman news, the Lego Movie is due to come out in just a few weeks, and will be Wonder Woman's first appearace on the big screen ever. So, hooray for that.
