CW President Mark Pedowitz, when asked about the possibility of Wonder Woman appearing in CW’s DC Comics universe, he revealed –
“If she is and we can get the right script we will do it, one of the nice things is that a lot of the other broadcasters and cable networks have done comic book characters based on the success of Arrow. So for our purposes, it is a rich source material, we know what the mythology is, and if you have the right superhero character you go for it.“
CW has been hitting all cylinders for comic readers, with Arrow’s bolstered popularity, gaining new viewers and creating a spin off for his fellow Justice Leaguer Flash and possibly Hourman (no word if shared universe). Also DC’s Imprint publisher, Vertigo comic series iZombie has a pilot releasing later this year.
With Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice coming to theaters in summer 2016, Gal Gadot has been training to match the physique of the Amazonian Princess, she is reported to not as of yet donned her costume, Director Zack Snyder emphasizes on the hype around his latest project, saying –
“You can talk all you want about other superhero movies, but it’s Batman and Superman, let’s just be honest, I don’t know how you get bigger than that.“
Meanwhile adding to the blow of Stephen Amell not making it to the big screen, Geoff Johns, DC’s Chief Creative Officer also shut down rumors of a Arrow-Man Of Steel shared universe, he explained –
“You’ll see a lot of DC universe characters [on The Flash and Arrow],” Johns said. “You won’t see Batman or Superman. We’re on production on Batman V Superman now. So you’ll see characters like The Atom or Firestorm, but no not Batman or Superman right now [on TV].”
Well, the good news is he didn’t say Wonder Woman isn’t for TV, Mr Pedowitz might be on to something…

Please share your thoughts, if Gal Gadot making it to the small screen is a strong possibility,
and do you think Wonder Woman can work well with the Arrow shared universe.
