Deadline has revealed that The CW is developing a series based on DC Comics’ newest “Wonder Girl.” The show will come from writer Dailyn Rodriguez and Berlanti Productions, and features the character that will be part of DC’s upcoming “Future State” narrative in a series from Joelle Jones.
Here’s how Deadline describes the project:
Wonder Girl centers on Yara Flor, a Latina Dreamer who was born of an Amazonian Warrior and a Brazilian River God, learns that she is Wonder Girl, and with her newfound power must fight the evil forces that would seek to destroy the world.
The previous projects of Dailyn Rodriguez include serving as showrunner of Queen of the South.
Interestingly, a version of Wonder Girl, Donna Troy, appeared in the first two seasons of the DC Universe/HBO Max series Titans, where she was played by Conor Leslie. Although her fate at the end of the second season may imply otherwise, fans expect her to possibly be back next year.
The CW’s “Arrowverse” lineup is soon to embark on its second phase. Arrow completed earlier this year with Supergirl wrapping in 2021. The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow still continue, though they are now entering their seventh and sixth seasons, respectively, and will probably wrap within the next few years. Superman & Lois is new for 2021 and Batwoman has a whole new lead for Season 2, effectively becoming a new show; and Black Lightning entering Season 4 also has a possible Painkiller spinoff planned. Finally, Stargirl is now a full-time CW series as of Season 2. This is all in addition to a Green Arrow and the Canaries project that is probably not moving forward with all of this DC activity taking up so much space on the lineup.
