Adrianne Palicki's 'Wonder Woman' costume gets a redesign- What do you think?
Adrianne Palicki's controversial "Wonder Woman" has been revamped since its web debut a few weeks ago, according to photos taken from the set of the new NBC pilot.
The costume was largely criticized for being too "costume-like" and less patriotic than the original. In the revamped costume, the pants are no longer glossy latex and the boots are now red, like the 1976 costume worn by Lynda Carter.
The new series is a reimagined version of the iconic DC Comics "Wonder Woman," where the heroine Diana Prince is a vigilante crime fighter and successful corporate executive in Los Angeles.
It was announced in February that Palicki would play Wonder Woman and her alter-ego Diana Prince in the television reboot. The 28-year-old actress is known for her role on "Friday Night Lights."
The pilot is spearheaded by "Ally McBeal" and "Boston "Legal" showrunner David E. Kelley. Elizabeth Hurley plays Veronica Cale, a villain, while Cary Elwes of the fantasy movie "The Princess Bride" portrays the CEO of Prince's company. Also appearing in the series will be Tracie Thoms, who will play Diana Prince's personal assistant, Pedro Pascal as a police liaison, Justin Bruening ("Knight Rider") as Prince's leading man, and Joseph Gatt ("Thor") as Hurley's character's muscle.
The lasso-wielding superhero was most noticeably seen in live-action form from 1975 to 1979, when "The New Adventures of Wonder Woman" television series starring Lynda Carter aired.A "Wonder Woman" film is also being developed by Warner Bros. Pictures and is as of now set for release in 2013, according to preliminary casting lists. "Mad Men" star Christina Hendricks has expressed interest in the project.
When asked by the UK newspaper The Times about reports that said she may star in a "Wonder Woman" adaptation, former "Transformers" actress Megan Fox called the character a "lame superhero."
Carter said the actress should not have "trashed" her former character. Carter also defended the new costume, and talked about how excited she was for the upcoming series. "What's not to like! Adrianne [Palicki] looks gorgeous and I'm really looking forward to seeing David E. Kelley's new series."
