Casting Information For Warner Bros., CW's Wonder Woman Origin Project - UPDATED

Reported by Outsiders - 12:27 PM 2012.11.30
UPDATE: Writer Allan Heinberg has sent a twitter that the name 'Iris' is just a code name Wonder Woman was given to avoid media attention. So it looks as the character will be called 'Diana'.

Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. TV and the CW are going forward with the project Amazon, based on Wonder Woman and they have hired a casting director to launch a search for the lead in the project in anticipation of a potential pilot pickup.

The casting search is being done while the script for the project is still being written. The background story for the project is a Wonder Woman origin story written by Allan Heinberg that chronicles the female superhero’s life as a young Amazonian, before she becomes a warrior princess with super powers. The breakdown for the character 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."
