While Gal Gadot is finally bringing Wonder Woman to the big screen in her upcoming appearance in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel, the Amazonian princess has had a hell of a time making it to television. NBC’s disaster of an effort starring a game Adrianne Palicki never survived pilot phase, and it appears now that the CW’s offering, Amazon, is a no go, according to CW president Mark Pedowitz.

Primed to tell the story of Wonder Woman during her formative years, the CW was far enough down the line to be ready to produce a pilot, but recently Pedowitz confirmed the cancellation of any such project, saying, “We did not go forward with it.” The series was being developed by Grey’s Anatomy producer Allan Heinberg, and Heroes writer Aron Eli Coleite. Still, all is not completely lost, as a proper script and other various factors can still bring her to the small screen.

When discussing the possibility of ever returning Wonder Woman to television, of which she has not been since Lynda Carter snapped up the Lasso of Truth in 1975, Pedowitz stated, “It all depends on the script. We were very careful with Arrow and we’re being very careful with Flash. These are iconic characters so we’re going to be very careful with Wonder Woman. You only get one shot before you get bit.”
