A new DC comics-based Wonder Girl TV show is in the works at CW network. The update was recently revealed in an early reveal.
IGN reported that CW is currently working on a Wonder Girl series due to arrive soon. It will be based on the new Wonder Woman from DC’s Future State comic event. And the new iteration will be Yara Flor!
The show will be under Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Productions and Queen of the South executive producer and co-showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez.
Wonder Girl show early details
Yara Flor is the new Wonder Woman in the upcoming Future State series event for those not knowing. She’s a child of an Amazonian Warrior and a Brazilian River God, and eventually takes up the mantle of Wonder Girl.
However, the original Wonder Woman, aka Diana, is still there somewhere in the future, as an immortal in a different mini-series.
Yara Flor is also the very new character who is directly getting a TV show even before her proper comic book debut! Created by Joëlle Jones, she is yet to appear in DC’s Future State comics event. So, for the fans, it will be a new experience as well.
Earlier this year in October, while announcing the character in comics, DC executive editor said:
“The DC Universe has always been fertile ground for new and refreshing takes on our characters, and DC Future State definitely contributes to this legacy. When the event begins in January, some savvy readers will not only pick up on some of the breadcrumbs that have already been tossed out in our current titles, but they will also find new hints and clues of what’s to come in 2021.”
As of now, it’s told that in the show, Yara will appear as a Brazilian Child of an Amazon and Brazilian Water God. She emigrates to America later on, but upon learning her secret, she takes on Wonder Girl’s mantle. Not to mention that she’s also mighty with supernatural abilities.
Other CW shows based on DC comics
Apart from this very new announcement, CW already features a vast universe of DC-based TV shows. The long list includes Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. Other titles are Black Lightning, Superman and Lois, and Arrow. The latter, however, is not active but was a long-running series a while ago.
In other words, fans can call it a DC-CWverse also. That sounds a bit funny, but it’s the fact that there just too many superhero series right now on the network.
And now Wonder Girl will surely turn out as an interesting addition to this expanding television world.
