The CW's wasting no time finding their comic book heroine. The network's currently working on a pilot called Amazon, which is based on Wonder Woman's early years. And we've discovered one of the many actresses up for the part.

According to STV, Scottish star Amy Manson is in the running to play Diana. The strong-willed Amazonian princess would be right up Manson's alley. She's played more than a few independent women over the course of her career.

Most of you will remember her from her stint on the U.K. version of Being Human. Manson starred as the vampire Daisy, who along with Mitchell (Aidan Turner) was responsible for the Box Tunnel Massacre. Manson's also appeared on Outcasts, and had guest spots on Torchwood and Misfits.

The actress has already made it through two rounds of Amazon auditions. With a role like this, we're sure the network's putting its candidates through the wringer. The script's still in development, but The CW's anxious to take the pilot to series.

What do you think? Does Manson have Wonder Woman potential?
