CW's Wonder Woman pilot delayed due to script and casting issues

We've been hearing about the CW's developing Wonder Woman series Amazon for months, and now the network's announced its decision on whether the show will move beyond the script stage.

According to Deadline, the CW just made its final orders for pilots that could end up as series for the 2013-2014 season, and sadly Amazon did not make the cut. But hold on, Amazonians, because it's not dead yet.

Though a pilot wasn't ordered this season, The CW did decide to "roll" the show. Basically they'll leave it alone for a season (or maybe less) and allow the creators more time to craft the show into a hit. According to Deadline's sources, the network just felt it needed "more time," and it's still considered a "high priority."

So while we won't see Wonder Woman on the small screen this fall, we've got another chance when the 2014-2015 season rolls around, particularly if Arrow continues to turn in strong ratings and the network wants to get another DC Comics-inspired boost.

What do you think? Is this a sign that the appeal of Amazon is waning, or will we finally get the new Wonder Woman show we deserve a little later than we expected?
