The recently announced Wonder Girl series will not be going into further development for The CW…
If you’re anything like us and were looking forward to having a Wonder family centric series finally on The CW, then you’re going to be very disappointed. We certainly are.
The recently announced series, Wonder Girl which would have featured the new Wonder Woman from the new DC Future Slate comics, Yara Flor will not be going through to pilot season, according to CBR. We were so excited to finally have a series on The CW where it finally acknowledged the Wonder family which is where Diana Prince, Donna Troy, and Cassie Sandsmark all reside within superhero family structures in DC Comics.
Yara would’ve been a welcome addition to the Latina superheroes within the confines of the DC slate of shows on The CW. The only one of the ethnicity that we can think of is Yvette Monreal’s Yolanda Montez/Wildcat II on Stargirl.
The project is confirmed to no longer be in development by Dailyn Rodriguez on Twitter:
Who Is Yara Flor?
For those who don’t know who Yara is, let us explain. Now, we do have to stress that she is not your standard Amazon. She is a demigod of the Amazons of the Amazon in South America. Brazil to be more specific.
Yara was introduced in the new Future State comics series in January. She was the new Wonder Woman. She is the daughter of an Amazon and a Brazilian River god. Her story begins when Princess Diana of Themyscira is absent and she comes out of the Amazon Rainforest, according to her bio on the DC Database.
Had the Wonder Girl series gone ahead, it would have focused on the early years of Yara’s life. She would’ve learned that she is Wonder Girl. Where this would’ve sat within the Arrowverse is unknown. It mightn’t have been a part of that universe at all. For all we know, it might’ve been on a totally different Earth in the multiverse. Think of it as being like Stargirl or Swamp Thing.
Finally, going back to Yara’s life, from what research we’ve done, she is part of a new generation of the Justice League and becomes friends with Jon Kent. Now, the Future State series takes place well in the future circa 2050s.
