Wonder Woman could still fly back to TV on The CW. The network didn't order Allan Heinberg's "Amazon" script to pilot, but told reporters the project is still in play at the network.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Heinberg has been replaced by "Heroes" writer Aron Eli Coleite on the rewrite. "It is being redeveloped. We're waiting for the script to come in; we haven't seen it yet," CW President Mark Pedowitz told reporters after the network's 2013 upfront presentation. "We are preparing to pilot it off-cycle should the script be what we want it to be. We do not want to produce something that doesn't work for that particular character -- it is the trickiest of all the DC characters to get done."

When news first broke about The CW's efforts to bring Wonder Woman back to the small screen in 2012, Lynda Carter, the star of the 1970s "Wonder Woman" TV series, said she was delighted to hear the character could be making a comeback.

"Wonder Woman is a fantastic, inspirational character who should be introduced to a new generation. I wish them great luck and look forward to seeing it on air," Carter said in a statement to The Huffington Post.

NBC tried to bring Wonder Woman back to TV with a 2011 pilot from David E. Kelley, starring "Friday Night Lights" veteran Adrianne Palicki.

"I'm incredibly proud of that project," Palicki told CraveOnline in October 2012. "I was so grateful to get to play Wonder Woman. That was a childhood dream of mine and I’m proud of the outcome. I do wish it would have gone to series but everything happens for a reason. Looking at it as a positive, I got to work with some amazing actors, [an] amazing writer and I got to wear the outfit. It was not comfortable but it was totally worth it."
