Get ready for The CW's Smallville-inspired Wonder Woman TV series

Wonder Woman is getting another shot at TV. The famous DC superhero is the focus of a new series being developed by The CW. But don't expect all the bells and whistles from the comic book. This adaptation will be slightly different.

The CW loves breaking down comic properties and making them its own. Sometimes it's a creative decision and other times it's a legal issue. With Smallville there was the "no tights, no flights" rule, and Arrow has taken the "super" out of superhero. Now they plan to give Wonder Woman the same treatment.

Vulture is reporting that the network is developing a script based on Wonder Woman's origin story. It's called Amazon, and it's being written by Allan Heinberg (Grey's Anatomy, The O.C., Young Avengers). The story will chronicle her early years as "a young, budding superhero, rather than a fully formed defender of liberty."

Amazon could focus solely on Diana, similarly to how Smallville followed Clark (not Superman). At this point they're working on a script and haven't greenlit a pilot.

Amazon comes a year after David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman pilot was passed over at NBC.
