Here she’ll be Diana Prince, a vigilante crimefighter and successful corporate executive in Los Angeles who tries to “balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.”

So, she'll pretty much be a mixture of Power Girl, Manhunter & WW...?

I have misgivings about this, though I've also heard that the lasso, bracelets, and plane figure into the mix as well. Still, more often than not, a DC property brought to anything other than animation seems to fail big time. And it usually starts with taking big liberties with the source material.

Agreed 100%. I'll give it a watch, but it just doesn't sound at all promising.

It's only a PR release, lots can change. Besides every hero is considered a vigilante pretty much. It's just such an edgy sounding word to executives rather then ambassador of peace.

If its through NBC how much access with they have to pull on DC mythology? Smallville has to clear all the characters they bring into the show don't they? Would DC let NBC have additional properties to establish a universe? Will WW have established DCU heroes as guest stars?
I hope this is more successful then their remake of the Bionice Woman...

Sounds terrible. I hate to get all fanboy but this sounds like all kinds of bad.

Yeah, I don't have much hope. I'll hold off until we hear casting choices and get more info.

Ugggh. I was hoping that Kelly would get bored and focus on his other properties.

Then again, it's only for a pilot, so if NBC finds it un-viewable then we have nothing to worry abou.

Having her as a governement agent or something would have been fine. Do we need "Diana Prince, CEO" to know that she's tough? Couldn't "Diana Prince, Agent for the US Bureau of whatever" done just as well? I mean having her work for the US government has never been a problem before.

They shoved PG's idetity onto Diana. It makes no sense.

If you wanted to do something completely different with her, make her an MMA fighter.

it may not even get made into a TV show. many pilots don't.

I actually think JMS's urban fantasy version of Wonder Woman, including the costume (I think it looks better without the jacket but I don't hate it the way some people seem to), would work pretty well as a live action TV series.

Kelley's idea might work but so far I don't have high hopes.

Good point. The Aquaman pilot looked good in the teaser. They had a solid cast lined up yet it still didn't get picked up.
