Amy Manson As Wonder Woman For CW's Amazon?


5062 The new Wonder Woman television show, "Amazon," that is in the works from the CW apparently has a front runner for the lead role with Amy Manson.

It's being reported by Stv.com that Manson, age 27, a Scottish actress, has made it through two auditions for the role of what was said to be a younger Diana first making her way to the world of man.

(Regarding her age, that's not that big of a deal as an older Tom Welling played a teenage Clark Kent in Smallville.)

Amy Manson is known for her roles in the UK version of Being Human as well as Torchwood, Casualty, Marple, and Desperate Romantics.

We previously heard from CW President Mark Pedowitz who recently said that they were busy casting the role and waiting for the script.

Here's a previous description of "Amazon" (Iris is the codename for 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.
