Potential ‘Amazon’ Pilot Seeking Lead Actress

2 min read

With the success of Arrow over on The CW, it’s no surprise that they’re trying to get another DC Comics property up and running, one that’s had a few attempts so far with the Wonder Woman character. This interpretation, titled as Amazon, is moving forward a bit as Warner Bros. has hired a casting director for the potential pilot knowing that there’s a very good shot that it’ll make it to that stage at least. With the previously failed Wonder Woman series that NBC was trying to get out that went down in flames, The CW is looking to play this as real world as possible, which can work, and using the traditional fish out of water story idea. Curiously, they’re calling the character Iris, but it’s easy to see that it’s likely who we all know it is and that a name growth/change will come in the series itself.

According to the breakdown I’ve obtained, her name is Iris (not Diana). “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.”
