CW's "Amazon" Looking For Wonder Woman Named Iris
They are looking for females in their mid-20s to play the character of Iris, who is a teenager before she becomes Wonder Woman.
The series pilot has yet to be green lit, and it's wondered if the studio is looking for the right actor, or quite possibly, they are confident in the new series, as Arrow has been such a success.
Perhaps the reason Adrianne Palicki's Wonder Woman was canceled was to make way for Wonder Woman in the Justice League movie, and at the same time, have a younger Wonder Woman featured on TV.
Deadline has acquired a breakdown of the character Iris from Amazon:
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.”
