Last summer in 2011, a Wonder Woman series starring Adrianne Palicki was being developed. It was terrible, just, terrible hence why NBC passed on the show. Now the CW and Warner Bros. are trying to get their own Wonder Woman series off the ground. They’ve already announced casting for all actresses in their mid-20’s who are 5’8” or taller. The details of the planned series are as follows:
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.
Whoa, whoa. Let’s get this out of the way. I DO NOT take ice cream for granted. Now, a few problems I see with this story. If this country she’s from is so secluded, how will she know how to speak English? I’m assuming she’ll be speaking English? Unless I’m wrong and she speaks in tongue clicks which would be pretty cool.
Also, where do the golden lasso and magic bracelets fit in. There is no such thing as a Wonder Woman without those things. Oh and tight clothes that show off her breasts as she runs around lassoing people. We can’t forget that.
Right now what I’m getting from that synopsis is this will basically be like Crocodile Dundee but with a woman.
