Yesterday, it was announced that NBC would not be taking Wonder Woman to series, despite the pilot garnering much media attention in recent months.
"I hate to disappoint anybody," Greenblatt told Entertainment Weekly following the announcement. "I know there are legions of fans of the original show."
The pilot episode starred Friday Night Lights actress Adrianne Palicki, Liz Hurley and Cary Elwes but had been criticised over the titular character's costume design.
"They made a really fine pilot and Adrianne Palicki did a fantastic job," Greenblatt explained. "You look at what you have, what you need, and it just didn't seem to fit in with what we were doing."
"We did what was best for the schedule," he added. "You're almost damned if you do and damned if you don't."
Greenblatt insisted that the initial negative response to Palicki's Wonder Woman costume had nothing to do with their decision, claiming that he enjoyed the fact that the pilot had received so much attention.
Despite NBC's failure to pick up the Wonder Woman pilot, Greenblatt confirmed that Warner Bros TV are free to shop the series out to other networks.
