DC Comics is a hot property for television lately, after the success of Smallville, the breakout hit new series Arrow, and the development of Booster Gold, The CW and DC are moving forward with their planned Wonder Woman origin show titled Amazon. Deadline.com is reporting the following:
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.
Interestingly enough, DC has to find a way to introduce the character to mass audiences before attempting to bring the Amazonian to the big screen for a Justice League movie. Diana’s role is so crucial to the mythos that without her the movie wouldn’t work. But are audiences ready to accept her? With the success of the current New 52 series and the awesome direct to DVD animated movie, I think so!
Stay tooned 😛
