‘Wonder Girl’ Series Headed To The CW?

If you were wondering if DC Future State would have any lasting effects, the answer appears very clear.  Deadline reports that a Wonder Girl series could be heading to The CW.  The character in question would be Yara Flor, the Latin-X Amazon created by Joëlle Jones.

Much like other Arrowverse series, this would be coming from Berlanti Productions.  Dailyn Rodriguez (Queen of the South) would serve as executive producer and co-showrunner.  Rodriguez would also write the series, but I'm guessing she'll have the help of a writer's room beyond the pilot episode.  Any casting announcements are obviously premature at this point.

This would be the first Latin-X led superhero series from DC.  The early series description tells us the series, "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. With her newfound power must fight the evil forces that would seek to destroy the world."

It's worth noting that Yara Flor will be introduced as the new Wonder Woman in Future State: Wonder Woman next year.  Keep in mind, that is currently slated to be a limited series event.  That also doesn't mean that the character won't continue in some capacity beyond that.  Jones said as much in a recent tweet.

I know that I have used the term Arrowverse a couple of times, but that may be premature.  There is nothing in the report to suggest that this series will be connected in the same universe with The Flash, Batwoman and others.  You'd think that would be the case, but remember Black Lightning was not connected until Crisis on Infinite Earths.  It will be nice to see that iconic Wonder Woman symbol on The CW, regardless of how the show is connected.  It will also be interesting to see if the series leans into Brazilian culture at all.  Wonder Woman stories have never been shy about mythology, so it would seem natural to do the same here.

More on this as it develops.
