Wonder Woman stalls
Sources say that Wonder Woman's failure to take flight is a matter of poor timing. Kelley intended to do a contemporary take on the popular DC Comics heroine for Warner Bros. TV. The pilot script was shopped around on Wednesday, with Fox and ABC passing on the series almost immediately. Fox was not considered a good fit for the show's subject matter, and ABC has too strong of a connection with Disney, who recently acquired the rights to Marvel, and have been developing projects for the network such as the new Hulk series. So ABC considered taking on DC's Wonder Woman a conflict of interests.
