The CW has decided to hold off on their impending Wonder Woman pilot, entitled AMAZON, Deadline has reported. As of now, the network has tentatively scheduled it for Fall 2014.

The project will be a natural companion to the network's long-running "Smallville" which tells the story of how a young Clark Kent evolved into Superman. AMAZON will be a prequel or origin story about the character rather than a look at the adult super heroine often depicted in films and comic books. The story will center on Wonder Woman's alter ego Diana of Themyscira, described as "a warrior princess of the Amazons who is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and tactical warfare."

The project had entered pre-production in November, when the network had begun testing actresses for the lead role. Ultimately, the execs decided the project needed a bit more time to get its feet off the ground, the site reports.
