DC Comics' Wonder Girl Series in Production at CW

Yara will make her comic book appearance this January in Future State: Wonder Woman, part of DC's Future State event written and drawn by Jones.

The developing CW series would tell the origin story of Yara Flor, which would presumably either be an adaptation of the new Wonder Girl comics or a CW take on the story.

The heroine's alter ego will be Yara Flor whom DC Comics describes as 'a Latina Dreamer whose parents were an Amazon Warrior and a Brazilian River God'. After learning that she is, in fact, Wonder Girl, Flor uses her newfound power to help rid the world of evil.

The CW series is notable for both starring the first Latina superhero, and also being based on a character who hasn't officially debuted yet in DC comics.

The writer of the Wonder Girl show is Dailyn Rodriguez, who in 2018 became co-showrunner of the USA Network show Queen Of The South.

Deadline reports that the latest addition to the ever-growing cast of DC shows at the CW will now include Wonder Girl.

Greg Berlanti and The CW have a new superhero series centered on a Latinx hero in the works.

Oscar-winning actress Debra Winger played Wonder Girl on the beloved 1970s Wonder Woman TV show led by Lynda Carter. Rodriguez is repped by Rothman Brecher Ehrich Livingston and attorney Darren Trattner. The original Wonder Girl, Donna Troy, was created by Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani and first appeared in The Brave and the Bold #60 in 1965.
