The CW has seen a fair share of success with its new DC superhero series “Arrow” and they are ready to cast the lead in what they hope will be their next big comic book hit, “Amazon”. Warner Bros. TV, who is the studio behind the project, has officially hired a casting director even though the project has not been picked up yet for a pilot.
A comprehensive breakdown of the character has been released, and it tells the story of a young Wonder Woman, named Iris, before living as an Amazonian before she discovered her super powers.
“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, and ice cream. It’s all new and fascinating and sometimes slightly troubling to her. Iris is completely unschooled in our world, our culture, and 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.”
