    Gal Gadot Speaks on Wonder Woman Casting, and We Think Something Got Lost in Translation

    Gal Gadot has finally done her first interview on the subject of her Wonder Woman casting. Unfortunately for us, it's an Israeli interview, so the whole thing is in Hebrew, but if the translation is accurate, the guy conducting the interview completely misunderstands the issue people are having with Gadot as "her boobs are too small."

    Casting Sheet For Wonder Woman Reveals Really Obviously Symbolic Names

    The venerable tumblog DC Women Kicking Ass has gotten a hold of the casting sheet for David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman pilot, revealing what looks like the majority of the major characters of the show. The new show will portray a Wonder Woman who is a "powerful C.E.O.", and most of the characters named fall into the category of a CEO's entourage.  A press secretary/best friend, a personal assistant, and a second-in-command-CEO.  Those who don't fall into that category, naturally, are love interests. Honestly, our favorite part?  Liberal use of the phrase "open ethnicity" when used to describe casting requirements.

    Never Mind: David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman Pilot Totally Greenlit by NBC

    Some surprising news from NBC this weekend: Two weeks after passing on a Wonder Woman show scripted by David E. Kelly because the network couldn't afford the character's licensing fee, the National Broadcasting Company has changed it's mind an given the green light to the Amazonian princess. Apparently two weeks ago, NBC was still going through some internal staff changeups, and didn't have someone who could vouch for a project as big as Wonder Woman.  Now that new president Bob Greenblatt is firmly in charge, the network could firmly commit itself. In other news, the show might not be about an Amazon.  Or a princess.

    David E. Kelly’s Wonder Woman Show Is A No-Go

    David E. Kelly's announced Wonder Woman television show has been shopped around to networks... and nobody's buying. According to Deadline Kelly's pilot script

    was reportedly taken out to the broadcast networks on Wednesday night. Fox and ABC passed, while WBTV's sister network the CW could not afford it...
    This left CBS and NBC in play. I hear the CBS executive team was split, while the fluid situation at NBC where new programming chief Bob Greenblatt is yet to take the reins, made it impossible to get the type of license fee that the studio was seeking in order to do the show Kelley had envisioned.
    The reason why ABC passed on the pilot is of course because of the network's association with Disney, who are now the big media company behind Marvel comics.  ABC is currently working on three different Marvel-based television shows, and nobody wants to cross the streams of the Big Two.

    Women of DC Comics Jewelry is Awesome, Outside My Price Range

    Designer Leeora Catalan's nOir Jewelry has just released pictures of their new line of DC comics jewelry based on the women of the comics universe, and it's kind of shockingly awesome. Sadly, that beautiful Wonder Woman cuff does not appear to be available yet, so I can't go to its page to see just how much more-than-I-would-be-able-to-spend it costs. And I don't even like having stuff on my wrists that much. Oh, and there are also some cuff-links, guys.
