In February we learned that Adrianne Palicki was going to be starring as the title character to the show, and just this morning I showed you pictures of Elizabeth Hurley as Veronica Cale on the set of Wonder Woman. As you can see there have been a few changes to the costume, the shiny new tights, the blue boots (instead of the red), the extended bracelets and the full blooded lipstick.
Red alert! Or should we say blue? EW has obtained an exclusive first look of Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman — aka Diana Prince — from NBC’s reboot of the classic 1970s series. What’s different from what we’ve seen before? Well, how about those shiny blue pants? And blue boots instead of red ones? Compared to Lynda Carter’s get-up, this body-hugging extravaganza de-emphasizes the patriotism and seems to play up the comic’s Greek mythology. And a special shout-out to those bracelets! Wonder Woman is being remade by Boston Legal writer David E. Kelley, who has incorporated the superhero’s signature lasso, cuffs, and plane in the pilot. NBC promises the project, if picked up to series, will offer a serious, non-campy take on the DC Comics character. Along with Palicki, Elizabeth Hurley (Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me) and Cary Elwes (Saw, The Princess Bride) have joined the cast. Hurley’s character runs a pharmaceutical company that is creating a drug that makes people stronger while Elwes plays the CEO of Diana’s company, Themyscira Industries.Honestly? I don't know what to say. I like it, but then again, I don't. There is definitely no comparison when it comes to Lynda Carter's iconic costume, but I'm willing to give it a chance. If it was any other writer besides the award-winning, David E. Kelley, I would probably fold after the first episode.
I'm still in shock really, this is too much news to take in one week. With my queen killed off by her daughter on Tuesday, and Glee's Kurt & Blaine kissing on Fox, who knows how my weekend is going to end.
