They're using the pseudonym of "Isis" in the breakdown for the character casting call but even Geoff Johns has taken to Twitter to calm complaints, that her name will be Diana on the show.
I have to say, I'm optimistic. Though they are not related productions, Arrow has already worked out so well from a creative and ratings standpoint. It seems like a corner has been turned for comic book properties on TV, especially with Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. on the way.

Me too. Arrow's "anti-decompression" (great term) is one of things I like most about the show. They're balls to the wall every week. It's refreshing.
And it's not like they don't have a huge list of things yet to accomplish. Laurel as Black Canary, Merlyn as a villainous archer, Thea as Speedy, episodes about Deathstroke and the other DC villains lined up, the mysteries of the Island solved, the big story of what "the future for Starling City" being planned is, to name just a few. Roy Harper is still waiting in the wings some day. Hell, Oliver can grow a goatee down the line, even.
This show is the anti-It took Clark TEN YEARS to fly and put on the costume.

I don't think there's any romantic sparks between Joan and Lane, which is funny since Lane is so desperate for female companionship that's not his wife. Joan/Lane is based around pure professional respect.
