CW moves forward in the Wonder Woman Series... Who in the F**K is Iris?

The CW is moving forward with the Wonder Woman origin story. They have hired a casting director and they are looking for a woman who's 5'8 or taller. But an interesting piece was revealed in this news... A character name Iris... Who in the f**k is Iris?

Nellie from Deadline has the scoop:
According to the breakdown I’ve obtained, her name is Iris (not Diana). “She comes from a remote, secluded country and until now has spent most of her life as a soldier and a leader on the battlefield. Because of relentless brutality of her life at home, Iris looks at our world with absolute awe and astonishment. She’s delighted ­and just as often horrified ­ by the aspects of everyday life that we take for granted: skyscrapers, traffic, ice cream. It’s all new and fascinating and sometimes slightly troubling ­to her. Iris is completely unschooled in our world, our culture, our customs. And she’s completely inexperienced at interpersonal relationships. She has no social filter, does not suffer fools, and tends to do and say exactly what’s on her mind at all times. She’s bluntly, refreshingly honest. She can tell when you’re lying to her. And she doesn’t have time or patience for politics or tact because she’s too busy trying to experience everything our world has to offer. There are too many sights to see ­and things to learn ­and people to care for. Hers is a true, noble, and generous heart. And she will fight and die for the people she loves. Iris is a fierce warrior with the innocent heart of a romantic ­and she will fight to the death to make the world safe for innocents and true romantics everywhere.”
Again, who is this? Maybe it is code for someone? Maybe it's a new character? Just as long it's not Diana, then we are good.

I'm intrigued, but hopefully it's not Diana.

Typically when casting sheets/calls go out, the characters are named differently i guess to keep info confidential. Geoff Johns and Alan Heinberg tweeted that Diana is definitely what the lead character will be named.

I remember that comic in the 80's - GOLDEN series of WW - George Perez was either drawing or writing it... fantastic.
