Warner Bros. and The CW have quietly begun the casting process for their new "Wonder Woman" pilot. We're not sure why, because obviously the role was made for Phoebe Tonkin, but the casting call for the lead character does make for an interesting read, particularly if you're a fan of the original DC Comics heroine.
Previously, Wonder Woman's given name has been Diana Prince. She's an Amazon from the peaceful, idyllic Themyscira, also known as Paradise Island. The CW's new origin story reinvents her as Iris, a young woman raised as a warrior. Instead of a lasso of truth, she's got an innate ability to tell when people are lying. Despite her rough upbringing, she's an optimist and a romantic... with a few awkward social quirks.
