This article describes various allusions in the American television series Smallville to DC Comics character Wonder Woman, also known as Princess Diana. Although Wonder Woman never made an appearance on the television series, there were several references to the character and her universe. The notes on this page are generated by viewers and comics fans, but not necessarily verified by the show's producers or writers.
Wonder Woman is the superhero name given to Diana of Themyscira, an Amazonian Princess from Paradise Island. In the future, she becomes one of the world's greatest heroes as well as (along with Superman and Batman) one of the founding members of the Justice League of America.
Due to Hollywood producer Joel Silver's then efforts to create a Wonder Woman feature film, the character could appear in any episodes of the series. During his time as Season Eight's Executive Producer, Darren Swimmer said that the producers would love to have a storyline with a Justice Leaguer Wonder Woman involved. The character ultimately appeared in the Smallville Season 11 comic book series, which started out six months after the events of Season Ten.
- In Asylum, a newspaper headline reads THEMISCYRAN QUEEN ADDRE*** ***TICAN, which refers to Wonder Woman's mother, Queen Hippolyta, as well as the home of the Amazons, Themyscira.
- In Warrior, Lois Lane goes to a comic book convention and wears a costume highly similar to Wonder Woman's. She also clarifies that the outfit is supposed to represent an Amazon princess.
- Warrior Angel's emblem seems similar to Wonder Woman's logo.
- In Fortune, Chloe Sullivan mentions to Clark Kent how she encountered other heroes while she was away, and specifically comments that she encountered "a wondrous woman who's gonna throw you for a loop".
- In Olympus, the character of Princess Diana makes her Smallville debut. Steve Trevor, Hippolyta, Artemis and Hades are also introduced, along with the home of the Amazons, Themyscira and its inhabitants.

- Actress Adrianne Palicki, who played Lindsay Harrison/"Kara" in Season Three's Covenant, was cast as Wonder Woman in David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman pilot for NBC. Following less-than-positive opinions from test viewings, NBC opted not to pick up the show for the 2011 Fall season.
- Erica Durance played Annie Bilson In the NBC's TV-series Harry's Law episode "Gorilla my Dreams". She wore Adrianne Palicki's Wonder Woman costume in that episode instead of the one she wore in the Season Nine episode Warrior.
