Off the heels of their announcement that The Flash might be getting his own TV series spinning out of Arrow, The CW President Mark Pedowitz said today their Wonder Woman pilot “Amazon” is being put “on pause” for the time being. “The script isn’t where we want it,” he said.“It’s better to wait and get it right.”
These developments echo similar comments Pedowitz made a few months ago, but with the project being officially “put on pause” we can forgo the previous reports of a Spring 2014 debut for the series as those no longer seem likely.
“Amazon” is said to be a retelling of the origin of Diana of Themyscira in a similar way that Arrow retold Oliver Queen’s origin story. The news of a “Flash” spin-off from Arrow means the CW might be mulling over a similar path for the character in the future.
