Is it safe to say that the CW has more or less cornered the television market when it pertains to live-action shows featuring our favorite DC superheroes? First they made Smallville, a show some of us were convinced would never die, and then they continue on with The Arrow. So when they come out and say they’re looking to do their own television show on Wonder Woman, you bet they’ll be looking for the perfect actress to play the super-powered princess in Amazon.
Naturally the CW began it’s hunt for Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman for their brand spanking new show. Well, it’s more like they tried their best to cover up the fact that they were already doing casting for Diana Prince but failed to do so. The requirements to be Wonder Woman are simply as follows: be 5’8″ or taller and be around your early to mid twenties. It’s simple to find somebody who physically fits the bill, but you need one convincing actress to be the amazon warrior. And you can never forget the fact that there will always be comparisons between Amazon and the Wonder Woman television series in which actress Lynda Carter is most known for.
Let us not forget that Amazon is a prequel of sorts, taking place in Diana’s earlier years as she first becomes the famous superhero. While some of us are sick and tired of origin stories, the show is being written by Allan Heinberg, the same guy who wrote the animated television series Young Avengers. Basically what we’re saying is retain hope, even though they’re already casting given the fact that the script isn’t completed yet. This could be pretty good, and will more than likely show off this version of Wonder Woman in an outfit that doesn’t look like it belongs in an S&M club. Read on to see the details of Diana’s world in the casting call. Yes, we know she’s listed as Iris but don’t worry, that won’t be her actual name on the show (thank goodness).
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.
