Diana of Themyscira won't be coming to The CW in Wonder Woman origins series, Amazon, after all...

In news that comes as little surprise to anyone who's followed the bumpy development of The CW's Wonder Woman 'the teen years' project from delay to indefinite shelving, Amazon has officially been dropped by the network.

Put on pause last July while, according to network bosses, the script was fine-tuned, the small screen Wonder Woman vehicle is now officially dead at The CW.

"We did not go forward with it", said CW president Mark Pedowitz at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour. Though that's not to say that if the right script came along, it couldn't still be a possibility. "It all depends on the script. We were very careful with Arrow, and we're being very careful with Flash. These are iconic characters, so we're going to be very careful with Wonder Woman. You only get one shot before you get bit."

Amazon joins NBC's failed 2011 Wonder Woman pilot, which had Adrienne Palicki in the title role, on the TV junk pile. Cinema, however, appears to be having more luck with the character, as Gal Gadot's forthcoming incarnation in Batman Vs. Superman suggests.
