Women super heroes just can’t catch a break. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The CW has cancelled its plans to develop the Wonder Woman television series, “Amazon.” The show was planned to follow a young Diana of Themyscira.
“Amazon” was initially put on hold in July before being cancelled this year. The pilot was being scripted by Allan Heinberg. This is the second time a Wonder Woman series has been put on hold at the CW. In 2011, a “Wonder Woman” pilot with Adrianne Palicki in the lead was shot but never aired.
Thankfully, impressionable young ladies and various other superhero fans will still get to see Wonder Woman materialize in the upcoming film, Batman Vs. Superman.
There are also rumors that a spinoff film is in the works for the heroine and/or a big screen Justice League feature film being planned.
Batman vs. Superman, which also stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne, enters production soon for a July 17, 2015 release.
