About a month after Adrianne Palicki slid into the role of "Wonder Woman" for David E. Kelley's upcoming NBC pilot, the actress has slipped on the costume.
The magic lasso and bullet-deflecting bracelets that Lynda Carter famously wore in the '70s series appear to be intact, but the star-studded short-shorts? Not so much. Instead, we now have blue pants (shiny leggings is perhaps more descriptive) and blue boots instead of the classic red.
But, Entertainment Weekly notes, Kelley is keeping the plane in the pilot of this reboot, which he's said will portray Wonder Woman as a "real complex woman and not just a superhero." Meanwhile, NBC says that if the show is picked up for a series, they plan to offer a "serious, non-campy take" on the Amazing Amazon, a perspective that's tripped up at least one fan.
"I'm not saying that the WW costume is bad, but I think the costume looks a bit silly," tweeted talon842. "If this Wonder Woman series is a more serious in tone show, then the costume is a bit out of place. But if the show is more tongue-in-cheek, then the costume is fine."
Other reactions are similarly perplexed, with one person being able to accept the pants, but not the blue boots, while another feels those pants pay "homage to Evel Knievel. In a shiny skintight PVC kind of way."
But perhaps another viewer has it right: "Is the new Wonder Woman TV show costume perfect, no. Could it have been a lot worse, very much so yes!"
What do you think of the costume?

The boots need to be RED. Thanks.
Superhero outfits are often butchered when they go from the pages of the comics to the TV or movies. The worst was all the X-Men movies, where everyone wore black leather and lost a lot of individuality. Speaking as a life-long comics aficianado, I am always disappointed seeing a hero that I've read about for 35 years altered by some dumb movie director to fit what they think the audience would accept for their costume, powers, origin, etc. I remember the dumb line that Cyclops asked Wolverine in the first X-Men: "What would you prefer, yellow spandex?" Actually, YES, I would. I'd much prefer Wolverine's traditional yellow costume as seen in the comics over the stupid black leather. Or one of his many previous, less-garish ones. Daredevil wore leather in his movie too, as opposed to his traditional red fabric tights. I guess they didn't want him to look gay. But then, Spiderman wears tights. Does he look gay? The Fantastic Four movies, as incredibly dumb and twisted from the comics version as they could get, at least got the costumes right, but that's about all. The Human Torch may be a little bit of hothead in the comics, but in the movies, he's the king of all dikks, arrogant to the point of ridiculousness. .And don't even get me started on Doctor Doom (generally considered one of the greatest villains in Marvel comics, and should have voice like Darth Vader), whose appearance in those movies is about as threatening as a used car salesman. Let's hope Thor doesn't get butchered by idiocy, that would break my heart.
guys, what about Bridget Regan for WW? She was on Legend of the Seeker. She got robbed.
Absolute RUBBISH!!! This new take on Wonder Woman is an EPIC JOKE & slap in the face to the iconic hero Wonder Woman is and stands for. Adrianne make me think of a double stuffed Oreo cookie with two eyes and a mouth yelling HELP!!! The whole idea for this NBC show that was cooked up by Warner Bros. & David E. Kelley stinks. Please let it flush down a toilet like 2000 flushes blue in those tacky blue pants she is wearing. Tweaked or not it still does not say Wonder Woman to me and the majority of long time fans. I will not be watching this turd in a Bozo the clown looking costume.
I like the new costume much better. 'More skin' won't help Palicki become Wonder Woman. Linda Carter filled out that costume. I doubt Linda could be cast on TV today with the bias to skinny women. Too bad.
I don't feel Palicki has the Presence to strike fear in the hearts of Evil Doers. The scripts BETTER be good. There is much to explore about Wonder Woman. Just to name a few, her relationship with Steve Trevor, her mother, and the Amazon community could all be explored and expanded upon.
OR you could create an Alternative Universe ala Smallville. It didn't seem to hurt them much. ;) I was disappointed at first, but it grew on me. I'm still disappointed that Clark hasn't put on the Red and Blue Cape and all, yet. The rest of it turned out fine.
Flashy Special Effects could also help this Series over come this Casting faux pas. Wonder Woman's bracelets, rope, and plane are her Standards. Some bright CGI artist needs to put some REAL flash and sparkle on them. There's other opportunities, too. Hire someone who's actually READ the comics!
It seems so logical to the Fans that those working this Project would already be Fans who really love it. But it seems too much to ask Producers and Executives to figure this out. Now you know.
Why does everyone insist on comparing her to Lynda Carter?
When Tim Burton was casting "Batman" was everyone saying, "he's no Adam West and it HAS to be like Adam West." When Chris Nolan was casting "Batman Begins" was everyone saying, "it has to be like Michael Keaton."
Don't compare comic book characters to the actors that played them. Compare Adrianne to the source material, not the actress that played her on the corny (but wholly enjoyable) TV series of the 70s.
Nobody compared Michael Keaton to the Adam West Batman because West was a joke. Though I liked it for it's time period you can't compare that to Lynda as Wonder Woman. And it's not so much about her show and the bad writers it had off and on. It's about how much she became that character and embodied the true essence of a living breathing Wonder Woman. Now granted this thing in the costume does not have to look like Lynda Carter as nobody will EVER look that good as Wonder Woman but she should at least look like Wonder Woman. The only thing they did was update the HORRIBLE Cathy Lee Crosby outfit from 1974 so it would look even more horrible for today. Adrianne looks attractive as a blonde but I'm sorry, ugly as a fake brunette. Not too mention the whole show is FAKE. Hair color, boobs, the script is watered down, and that costume needs to be burned with the return of the original version. At least in every Batman project he has a costume that still says BATMAN. This just spells Bargain basement trash ready for a Saturday Night Live skit. Fail soon please and lets get a project that reflects the REAL WONDER WOMAN.
This choice of Wonder Woman is horrible. I don't like the costume and the woman is a far cry from Lynda Carters beauty. I agree she needs to be darker and have more muscle. The storyline is horrible as well. I am afraid this show will be a flop.
Actually, maybe the stars on the pants were already there, but I was partially blinded by the glare of the vinyl or what ever the pans were made of. Looks like they changed the material.
Hurray!!! Looks like they tweaked the costume a bit. Stars down the pant-legs and ....(wait for it!) RED BOOTS!!!! http://www.bleedingcool.com/2011/03/30/wonder-woman-set-pics-show-a-good-look-of-adrianne-palicki-in-a-new-improved-costume/
Yuck. It looks very cheesy, Saturday-morning-children's-program-ish. Too shiny. It's not edgy. Bleh.
I think the blue pants are ok, but are lacking white stars (even if they were few in number), they should be there. I think the boots should be red, and the belt and tiara should look less cheap than they do. They really look like they belong on a power ranger. Lets hope the TV show is more serious and true to the superheroine than this costume. I am rooting for the show's success.....after all the Batman and Superman movies and TV shows, it is hard to believe that Wonderwoman still has not had the treatment and range she deserves.
ughm....i hate the look.... i would prefer the shorts, and for god sakes hello red boots. it looks like a swimming suit. i think Lucy lawless could do wonder woman or some one close to her. Her body to thin, needs a thick look, muscle...i dont know i think they might ruin it. i love the original. sometimes remakes and remaking everything ruins things.
I'll give props to Adrianne for attenpting to fill Linda Carter's Wonder Woman boots (WHICH SHOULD BE RED!!!), but what I REALLY want to know is - what will be the show's Theme Music???? - I'll bet we can all still remember the original show song. This new one had better be good!!
Meh, I don't like it. Not because I'm opposed to change, but simply because it's way too shiny, and the boots should be red. With the blue boots the outfit looks somehow unfinished. tone down the shininess some, give her back her red boots, and don't ever make her stand in that ridiculous, off-balance pose again, and I'll be content. As for the actress, I don't know her, but I'm happy to give her a chance. Remember that concept, all you negative nellies? Giving someone a chance?
First off, Bridget Regan was my first choice for wonder woman because she's already good at acting and stage combat (as shown in the show "Legend of the Seeker") and also, she has a near perfect physical appearance. Now, I'm not saying Adrianne is necessarily bad, I just know absolutely nothing about her or her abilities.
The costume sucks. Now, the "design" of the costume had a decent idea going for it. (Red boots would have been better, but that's just my opinion)
The reason the costume sucks, is because it looks completely cheap. I mean, seriously, I find better quality superhero costumes at halloween express. I mean, Vinyl? Really? This costume looks absolutely fake and cheap. They couldn't make it out of the same materials as say, I dunno, Spiderman's costume? It had some major potential, until they chose the fabric! The gold accents look even MORE fake. They should have gone with a gold leaf fabric like Lynda Carter's top had, the gold on this looks plastic.
So to sum it up. Good Idea. HORRIBLE execution of said idea.
Although WonderWoman is Greek, it still makes sense that she would wear the red, white, and blue from the Linda Carter version because the USA is the birthplace of MODERN democracy and democracy originated in Athens, Greece. So it's a Greek invention. So it makes sense the Amazon Princess would adopt the USA as her new home.
Can't stand the blue pants. They should just go back to the outfit design from the 70's TV version which is more of a classic look. Another problem is that she's wearing a headband instead of a tiara. Am I the only one that remembers the tiara is not just ornamental but it is also a weapon that WW throws at her enemies like a boomerang? The show might make it 1 season before cancellation. If you saw the larger picture posted on other websites, it would be clear to most people how cheap looking this costume really is.
Hey, I think the actress is great! I've seen her on friday night lights. She'll be a great W.W.. The costume?,Not so much. Is this anyway to treat the greatest female superhero of all time!!! In a Latex looking, Too shiny, Too tight s/m outfit. Where's the respect for the character. Does Adrianne Palicki look like she can even walk in that outfit? How is she suppose to kick butt?!!
The series hasn't come out yet but you can already tell it's outcome...BOMB! We're suppose to take someone dressed in that outfit seriously? Is this "Dancing with the Superhero Stars"? Why would you change anything from the original outfit? How ridicules would Superman look without a cape? Wonder Woman in pants? Blue boots? Why not just change her to Wonder Man while you're at it. This is about as dumb as casting a bald, black guy as Nick Fury. If you don't like the original character, why not create something NEW? From the looks of this costume, I wonder who's going to watch this show.
She look like Sarah Lancaster form Chuck. Not sure why they didn't just offer her the role. PS: Yes the boots should be red no question about it.
The costume is ok, but I'm really tired of seeing "action" heroines who look like they could not break a toothpick or open a jar of pickles by themselves. It would be really great to see someone built like Michelle Rodriguez in this role.
Oh this costume works for me...please excuse me. I gotta go be alone now...
Too bad casting directors have decided that SuperHERO means SuperMODEL. Not the same thing at all. This "Wonder Woman" looks like she would cry if I pinched her. Wonder Woman is an AMAZON. She has muscles. She kicks rear end. Think Jessica Beihl in Blade 3. My suspension of disbelief doesn't work well enough to imagine this squishy thing kicking anyone's behind. As far as the costume goes...I will never understand messing with something that has been around and has worked perfectly for years.
..impressive wing-span on that eagle.... ;)
The outfit looks great, I think with blue pants and red boots, it would look comical and be too much. The actress is a very pretty girl, I hope the show gets picked up.
So she has to fight evil in high heels while Superman gets to wear something practical. Great.
I think the costume looks great. I just hope the series is as good. " I WOULD HAVE DONE A MOVIE FIRST!"
I think NBC will do ANYTHING it can to portray a woman as the leading man in this day and age....we had 'the bionic woman2', 'knight rider2', and now 'wonderwoman2'....and dont get me started on chuck, heroes, and the slew of other shows on usa, and battlestar galactica.....'starbuck as a woman'...am i the only one that found that a huge failure...not the bsg series..but starbuck as a woman?
as long as NBC wants to forcefeed the world women superheros....ill stick with cbs
I'm thinkin' about gettin' up in it! I hope they show lotsa scenes w/ her running. I wish they would do a nasty version on Showtime. Oh yeah.
If you're going to insist on bringing back a classic, you either have to bring it back and honor that classic – as in LEAVE THE COSTUME ALONE or update it completely so that the new generation of audience can appreciate it.
Clearly, fans of the classic are going to hate this for so many reasons already listed above. And then on top of it you've ruined what chances were there for attracting a new, younger audience by making the costume into something that the audience today doesn't want. They don't want skin-tight metallic costumes today.
Sorry, costume designers need a complete redo.
Here's how DC themselves view Wonder Woman, based on the art of Jim Lee – released THIS MONTH as a collectors action figure based on DC Universe Online.
Sorry to say that, other than the hair, Palicki fails to impress as a "modern" Amazon Wonder Woman. And, yes, David E. Kelley will kill this show. Let's see how well other superhero shows have fared this year. No Ordinary Family? Sets are being deconstructed, lead male character working on another pilot. The Cape? Show buy reduced by 3, last episode buried online only. The superhero genre, even if it's a throwback to an old 70s show, just doesn't have mass appeal to survive.
wow!shes hot!the boots are suppose to be red.
Xena fans have sent thousands of requests to Universal TV for a movie or series with Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor who want to reprise their roles. NBC gives us Wonder Woman. Lovely. Please give up your stranglehold on Xena, and give the series back to it's millions of fans.
I love Xena! She was a bad@SS MF!
Curious, though know the answer won't be forthcoming... Since Chloe mentioned her in one of the more recent Smallville episodes, will Chloe be making an appearance? Would be a nice completion of the tie in the writers seemed to be trying to establish, "I've met the most wonderous woman that will knock you for a loop". Have to agree on the over Blueness of the lower part of the costume, maybe lighten it up with some white stars down one leg the way WonderGirls earlier costume was or yes Red for the boots
Am I the only one upset, nay, offended that wonder woman has pants on? Moar skin plz!!!
Ugh. This young lady is lovely to be sure, but she in no way portrays the strong capable woman who holds her own as an equal among her super male counter parts. In fact she does not come across as a fully grown woman at all. She looks uneasy and lacking in confidence. Not much of an amazon, a race known for ferocity. I hope this goes the way of the dodo, quickly.
She looks like she's gonna sweat in that pleather get up. Besides, the second she starts running, her bosoms are gonna fall out.
Adrianne has the look and attributes to play the role of this heroin, now what she needs is a villain who's wit unravel her wip giving her a challenge in being caught, and that villain is me.
Megan Fox would be perfect for the role....and bring back the red boots
Boots should be red.
Good choice! She will be a wonderful WonderWoman. Although the boots! If she is going to wear the skin tights, then the boots should have been shorter, fitted down to the ankle perhaps and in red. I mean after all you almost changed the whole outfit to fit the new and improved WonderWoman you should have kept going with the boots. Who knows maybe she can change them out everyonce in a while depending on the situation. That's a thought! Huh!
Sad. Costume really doesn't matter. Hollywood is completely out of new ideas. Shazaam will be next. Followed by a six-million dollar man movie. oh joy what we have to look forward to. :(
I give it 15 seconds of air time – tops.
I want to approve of this lady but to me she looks like a bored cheap halloween costume model. Not getting the super vibe or any confidence from her.
Ok....how about adding Selena Gomes as Wondergirl to all this?
Needs more red boots, other than that; the pants are a reasonable change
If WW really wore pants like that she'd never be able to sneak up on a bad guy they would here her pants from around the block. I would love to hear they show filmed before Foley got their hands on it, it would be comical
Her costume is too tight and too small.(wink-smile)
Bring back Birds of Prey..now...
She's cute! The boots need to be red though for traditions sake and to make her outfit POP more. The blue boots are just...blah....
LACEY CHABERT! She wuld b the perfect WW. LACEY CHABERT!
When will they learn that these are "Comic Book" characters. Whatever the comic book is doing either storyline or costumes is always a better choice. Like so,
Another piece of crap T & A TV show created for pre-teen boys or comic book nerds. No normal mature adult will watch this fluff. I think I'm going to cancel my cable – between all the ridiculous reality shows, the antics of Charlie Sheen which I'm subjected to on every entertainment TV show every night and now this crap – I'm calling the cable company.
Will you cancel your internet too please?
Ok I agree Red boots for sure...
Jeans, Black boots and bluish black leather jacket. Every thing else can stay.
I guess she didn't have the legs for the costume.
Yes, could have been worse... but would have liked to seen something more edgy – you know, the way they updated (and continue to update) Batman's suit from the original TV series. We bought a Wonder Woman costume last Halloween for my 2 year old from Walmart's website – this looks eerily similar.
I though Amazon women were much bigger. Bigger than a 20 inch waist!
I would prefer something more like this
Ummm....who? And once again, NO ORIGINALITY is in play here. Just re-making someone else's idea.
Not a fan of the new costume. I do agree it needed updating, but I think this was the wrong direction.
The boots need to be RED!!!!!!! ;)
Wow. Looks great, except for the blue boots with blue leggings. Would have to be blind to not use red boots.
If David E. doesn't want it to be campy then they need to rethink the costume. They should tone down the colors a bit so it is not as flashy and bring back the red boots. WW is based on a comic and there has to be some things original. Seems like everyone is stuck on Linda Carter, sorry but this is a reboot so it doesn't matter who plays WW, it is a different take on things... its been over 30 years since the original TV show, get over it! As I said, spot on with the wardrobe but the colors need to be darkened to keep the flash of campy off of our minds...
Ugly pants. Need the skirt back. Go with the Linda C look!
I think she certainly fills the coustume out very well. Not too concerned about the lack of shorts or red boots. I am disappointed that my choice, Bridget Regan from Legend of the Seeker wasn't chosen. Oh well, I'll keep an open mind.
I think that there's a time and a place for the original costume if needed, but pants and jacket would help provide more protection if she's fighting someone. After all, you don't see Batman fighting in his undies, do you?
Too much boobs showing.....unclassy.
The new costume will fit right in with the power rangers
She is a pretty lady, but why change the character's wardrobe, she should look like Wonder Woman, and we only remember the original wonderwoman, so if not the same face, keep the same clothing, Was there a dramatic change in superman, or spidermans costumer??? Why cant they just leave things alone....hmm,
I didn't know they had silicone implants on Amazon island. This one's body is hardly the picture of an Amazon champion destined to become as "beautiful as Aphrodite, wise as Athena, stronger than Hercules, and swifter than Mercury."
She needs the exact costume Linda wore point blank. Red boots and all
She needs a blue jacket to go with it.
WIll never work.
Would prefer red boots... But I can live with the costume and the choice of actress. We'll see if Kelly has the chops to make a superhero show. THAT'S what is going to make or break the show. Not whether her boots are blue, skin is pale, or whether she looks enough like Lynda Carter or not. If the writing isn't there, then nothing will work.
Stick with an all-natural woman rather than an enhanced one. And yes, red boots are the deal! Maybe this show will carry the same fate as Bionic Woman.
She does not fit, Wonder women was thick, she not only had big breasts but she had hips and booty. Wonder women is an amazon and they were all potrayed as thick women. Not all skinny with implants. Go look at a comic book. Big breast "natural", flat stomach, hips, ass and thick thighs. Dont get me wrong this women is beautiful, but she is no wonder women queen of the amazons.
Hmmmm...was a big fan of the show when I was a little kid but can't see watching it as an adult. This woman is clearly no Linda Carter but she's not ugly with loads of fat hanging out either. Why don't some of you post your photos via links and let me judge, I'd be willing to bet we have some disgusting fat bodies and plenty of ugly faces!
I would have to see the pilot to see if it works for me. I'm partial to the Linda Carter version, but that's because I grew up with it. The young woman looks great in the costume, but we would have to see if everything falls into place. I like most of David E. Kelley's work, but I'm a bit hesitant with this one.
This costume wouldnt be so bad if the pants were a dark blue and didnt look like cheap plastic (like a costume shop costume)
Visually so far I can live with this.... but the pilot script breakdown... SUCKS.... this show wont make it to a second season
RED BOOTS PLEASE!! DO we really have to ask!??!?!
Those boots should have been RED. I remember watching the Lynda Carter version of the show when I was very young. I thought that she was so beautiful. I would have my dinner in front of the TV and I would be so into the show my fishsticks would get hard.
...judging just from the costume, I predict the show will be cancelled before its first season end.... Sorry
From the waist up, the new Wonder Woman costume looks great, but the baby blue pants and boots look odd. If the boots were red, I think it might help to balance things out. Also, I understand the choice of pants, but a skirt would have worked much, much better. As it stands, this Wonder Woman costume just feels wrong with the wrong changes for all the wrong reasons.
What I dislike most about this costume is that the bustier pushes her breast up so high you can see the outline of her implants.
This costume is based on the latest one in the comic books. For all people complaining this is not the "original" they have changed her costume MANY times since the comic was created in the 1940's. (Originially she wore a skirt, but that made problems when the bad guys could see her undies) The one from the old TV show was dropped by the comic book long ago. This new TV show will not last long; WW has always been a third-rate superhero; nothing to see here, folks...move along.
This doesn't say wonder women to me, it says Maxim. Do her obviously fake tata's really need that much exposer? Blue boots? No no no no as a women I have no desire to see this movie. It's like cat women all over again, pa leees! This movie could have been cool too.
It's not the costume that worries me.
Maybe I'm a male chauvinist pig, but I have all kinds of "thoughts" about this lovely lady and acttivities I would like to share with her, none of which would be acceptable to be printed here by the moderators. So I leave them to your imagination.
Yeah, I'd let her kick my a$$ just to get close to her.
@ R Kelly
Hey Buckwheat, how you gonna do any of what you're posting without a penis?
I MISSED THE FIRST TIME. THE ARM BANDS ARE TO LONG AND SHE HAS PULLED HER SHOULDERS BACK TO SHOW HER BREAST, LINDA CARTER HAD IT MORE NATURAL. WHERE IS THE CAPE? FIND SOMEONE THAT THE PEOPLE NOW AND GET A GOOD NAME FOR THIS. ALL THE NO NAME PEOPLE PLAYING THE COMIC BOOK HEROS IS NOT THAT GOOD FOR THE HERO. THE NEW SUPERMAN, BATMAN AND ANY OTHER I DO NOT KNOW? GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER PEOPLE!
You may be taking your comic book characters too seriously.
Caps lock stuck, or are you really that upset about this?
Red boots not blue, would be better. Will she have a cape?
The TV pilot is trying to be current, following DC's redesign of Wonder Woman; unfortunately, the costume redesign was completely unneccesary, and this realization in VINYL, of all things, simply adds insult to injury. The poor woman looks cheap, and sleazy in an outfit even a Vegas showgirl would consider tacky.
Sorry...this WW is a FAIL.
Too skinny. Not bad, but not for me.
I wouldnt mind setting up a safety word before letting her dominate me
I was getting it on with Snooki this morning and after I fired off on her I checked CNN to see what was what and banging an orange broad is way more fun than anything to do with wonder woman. There hasnt been a superhero with a more dull background than this one. The only interesting part of her background was when she was created and her original purpose, which of course isnt even relevant in the Linda Carter version.
Old and outdated...move on...and now for round 2 with my Snooki
Ok, guys, I can tell none of you kept up with the comics and are only relying on the Lynda Carter image. This is the costume that they're drawing now! Of course Idon;t think they're going to go with the story that's going on now.
I think they should have left the costume as it was in the original Wonder Woman. Why change things.
Miss the classic WW costume plus, still...high heels ?
Come on, WW hadn't worn heels since the reboot in the comics in the '80s on.
She (the actress, that is...) looks a little pale (WW supposed to grow up on a tropical island) and also she looks little thin, doesn't look like she could kick super-villain butt at all (WW supposed to be an equal to Superman).
As for the plotline which I've heard sounds a little strange, Diana Prince is a corporate executive ? Whoever is producing this has definitely never read a WW comic... this is gonna suck.
I agree with one of the responders to this article, that if this was made 10 years ago, Monica Bellucci would have been a great WW, I agree but it's not 10 years ago, for today, I would have liked American Gladiators's Gina Carano, she looks she could kick butt and can ! Plus she's attractive w/ a great smile.
That's all...plus, boots should be red...by the way.
Wonder Woman....really? why?...and dont bother, there is no good answer
She fits it well
I love it stop hating on it geez people you want a WW show and a great kick butt gitl & A cool awesome costume you got it amazing If Lynda Carter Approves thats all thats needed!!!!!!
The costume gets a 6 out of 10 from me. Now I have to see what type of action the suit will look good in. Furthermore is she physically fit for some hand to hand combat? If not, then the costume will be just another prom dress from "that 70's show".
She looks like Peggy Bundy, bad choice.
Blue Boots, Blue Leggings, serious, not-super-hero. Two thoughts:
If it's not broke, don't fix it!
If you ____ (mess) with it enough, you can break it!
Costume could b better. Should of stuck with the original. Thats what made Linda Carter... if Adrianne dud nit want it then find some 1 who will...
I would have stayed with the original wonder woman costume, Why change something that does not need fixing. As a fan of the classic wonder woman, The series is taking a chance on it's debut on television. True fans will have a hard time to adjust to the new look, Should have stuck with the classic.
The costume looks good and times have changed since she first appeared and as all the super hero movies that have came out their costumes change.
If Lucy Lawless was younger, she would of been perfect for the part. They waited too long. :-(
It's kewl. But wat about these blue boots? Not good! Change them to red that would set it off a little better. Just go back to the origenal costume.... Loose the blue boots. Please! Make me proud
I hate you
Don't hate-that's such a waste of time mr luis campbell
i love watching a good nerd fight.
It needs to be more warrior esque with darker colors
She can tie me up any old time she wants!!!
Hey I cudda done a better job
That pretty much sums it up!
They have totally ruined the image of WW, compared to what she used to be. This new actress cannot fill Linda Carters shoes, much less her bra! Ha Ha. But seriously, how is she supposed to do all the high kicks and such in those pants? Just not gonna be the same.
gotta have the red boots! more skin! and replace her with Kim Kardashin already!
The costume doesn't work without her RED boots.
I would've gone with a sportier, more badass chunky boot in red, but otherwise...she...looks...awesome!!!!
More skin please.
Also,lots of girl on girl bondage like in the old comics
Just my personal opinion: she's too scrawny. No offense to the actress but I grew up with Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman and it would be hard for someone else to fill her costume, pun intended.
Seriously. HOW is this realistic? HOW could a woman move/fight realistically in what is basically latex? This is merely male fantasy and, as always, ignores that this is a strong woman character with strong ideals that should appeal as much to women...if not MORE...than to men. How is this NOT campy and how can she be considered a complex character dressed like a pvc-wearing dominatrix??
How is a superhero Amazon realistic in any way? Comes from a secret island of beautiful women, has super strength, deflects bullets...Yep, everyday stuff. Totally real.
I've seen better and I've seen worse. Paliki works well as Wonder Woman, I think, but the costume could use a little tweaking. The blues should be a bit darker and I agree with others that the boots should be red. Otherwise I'm liking what I'm seeing so far.
eh -- i've seen better - she does not have the eyes of the o.g. WW
This is not Wonder Women... Why mess with the classic design?. You need to show more skin, bare legs, a midsection... and I agree, way too skinny....
To all the "boots should be red" idiots: get a frickin life. Wow. You make me embarrassed to be a geek. Shut the eff up already.
RED BOOTS and this girl is too skinny !
She has a beauty mark between her eyes, even makeup can't hide it, Anyone with a half a brain cell can figure it out that Wonder Woman is Diana Prince based on the beauty mark.
This costume is a big mistake.
It´s not going to fit to globalized world taste.
Take this american eagle off.
Wonder woman is universal just as spider man.
Don't like the pants,don't like the boots.when they find the real wonder woman then I'll watch.how would superman feel if they changed his cape blue.
THIS IS THE DESIGN THEY SHOULD USE! http://mydisguises.com/2010/07/06/unofficial-wonder-woman-costume-designs/
the boots were smart. From a design point of view, they lengthen her legs. Red boots would have chopped her legs and made them look stubby.
What's ridiculous here is nearly everyone basing their opinion of this show on how this woman in this photo looks–whether it be her hair color or the color of her boots. What really surprises me is that the men are doing it, too! Why don't we all wait for the show to air before forming opinions? Or, be ignorantly shallow.
i don't care what color her boots are! She's stunning!
Those boots should be RED!!!! ...otherwise it's fine.
Armchair Mogul fixed it, looks better. :) http://armchairmogul.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/ww42.jpg?w=380&h=900
Bad idea, ugly costume, a breast job so bad you can see the upper edges of the Implants as the costume pushes her out. Major failure waiting to happen.

You shouldn't mess with the classics. No one can ever replace Linda Carter as Wonder Woman
As my father said during the original series, they're a wonder.
They have finally turned Wonder Woman into a dominatrix. Submissive men will be glued to the set. Literally.
I give this show about a month before it's cancelled. They could make Wonder Woman naked and people still won't watch it.
red boots please.
Should of had Megan Gale in my opinion. A real amazonian would want to be Megan Gale.
Although the costume has changed, what we need to realize is so has the times and tine of the television audience. As long as the writing for the show is on point, and there's no reason why it shouldn't be given the talented pool of writers, the new WW has an opportunity to really make this project work. Too soon to tell, but let's wait and see.
That's cool. Yeah I see everybodys name! Cool I aint worried about none of you! Goodluck
Too old school, with all this new styles of cloth, i cant believe we could not come up with something a little more original?
I think she looks great. Look forward to a slightly more serious take and some butt kicking...
When Smallville was announced, did this website write a similar piece about Superman's outfit? Ridiculous. Who gives a damn was she looks like? I'm more interested in the writing and how the show is handled. Listen/look at all of you. Red boots, blue boots, bondage outfit, she's hot, she's not hot, she's too pale, she's too skinny. God. Shut up. Way to align yourselves with a legendary source of feminine power and then summarily cut it down before its most recent incarnation has even begun to air.
The only way to make the show come off really serious is to make the costum mostly Black or Steal Grey with silver bracelets, black boots with steal accents and black tiara. No gold accents.
We need the shorts and red boots! That's what made WW HOT!
The design is just ok, but the fabric looks "cheap" (Is this a Halloween costume?) comparing it with the tights-oriented heroes like Spider-man (the new costume looks amazing!) and Superman (the 2006 version). The Dark Knight costume looks awesome while trying to be as 'realistic' as possible. I can live with the new Wonder Woman costume, just get better materials that would make her worthy of the DC TRINITY!!!
As long as her capers require a lot of forward leaning at the waist, looking up at the camera and using her arms to pull etc. who cares?
Eye shadow helps too.
And yes a woman can be taken seriously when dressed like this; especially when it comes to the negotiation of the price.
Wonder Woman should be a natural beauty. She was a warrior and and an ambassador from an amazonian society. Less makup and a top that fits would be a start.
Don't know the actress, but she isn't the right body build or look to play Wonder Woman. She's too skinny, too pale and doesn't have black hair. The costume looks like it comes from some whips and leather fetish store. Whoever designed that costume really missed the boat on this one. NO PANTS!!!!!!!!! She looks like she was dipped in blue metallic paint. Very tacky! And what's this with the blue boots? Wonder Woman's boots were RED!!! NOT blue! The top looks okay, but the pants and blue boots need to go. IF the director of this show is trying to give us a "serious" take on Wonder Woman, then he shouldn't dress her to look like bimbo.
I want to know what "producers" are really after. They are given a character fully realized, proven to be marketable, and the stories are already written and loved by fans. So the first thing a "producer" wants to do is change everything. Every adaption so far has been way out there and off base. So yes your Wonder Woman is Wonder Woman in the "producers" name only. No red boots no shorts no Wonder Woman. BTW looks a little skinny to. Amazon i think not.
Who is this what happen to Megan fox?
Okay I have to admit when I was a teenage this show was definitely my favourite. When I saw the reruns on tv in the last few years I realized how cheesy the orginal show was. Linda Carter was definitely hot but the show was so campy it was silly.
As for the costome above- not crazy about the shiney pants and matching boots!
I know nothing about the girl, but the metallic Halloween costume has to go. I loved the series growing up and thought I was her since we had the same name and am really disappointed that even though Linda Carters outfit was smaller, this one is more revealing. Not sure how many parents of small kids want their kids to watch a show where the girl has an invisible plane, but can't buy a larger top. I think the top is should come up just a bit, not to ruin the look, but to make it a little more watchable for a broader audience... and I don't mind it looking like satin, but the metallic is just too S & M for a kids superhero....
She's a terrible choice to play Wonder Woman, her head is too big and chubby. Wonder Woman is supposed to be hot, not the after girl for a Jenny Craig advertisement.
I would much more preferred the new look in the comics. This look is so out of date and does not lend itself to anything but a campy approach to the story line. All of that said, I will wait and see, but concur that the actress needs to do some heavy work outs and look more the part.
The outfit is Absolutely Amazing ...
Jesus people...get lives!
All That's Left Is For The Dark Knight To Pay Her A Visit For Some"Buisness" An Bam.Show's Done.
Don't like it at all. Adrianne is beautiful and deserves better. From the waist up, it's awesome. From the waist down is a nightmare. There is no femininity, even for an amazonian type character. She looks too butch. A male character in my opinion would not have an instant attraction to her. Do men go to the beach to see beautiful women in tights or pants? In the obsession to make Wonder Woman more modern, she has lost that which makes her great, a brave, bold, SEDUCTIVE woman. Ru-Paul or someone like this should have helped in the designing of the costume. Seriously.
REALLY....... I realize that the producers are trying attract today's audience, but come on, spandex. Never change what was presented in the comics. Or for that matter, change what Linda Carter made into an icon. Even today, she will always be WONDER WOMAN. I'm gay, she was/is so incredibly HOT, I would have lasso'd for the other team. The key word here is WOMAN...... So stop "Skirt"ing on the real issue.
She is definitely no Lynda Carter I must say. I wish they had gotten Megan Fox in the role. As for the costume, it is a bit over the top, especially if they are going for the serious- but knowing Kelley's work, the show won't be too serious!
That costume convinces me, even more than her blank expression, that this will be even campier than the 70s show. I expected much better of David E Kelley. Ah well. There's always the Straczinski comic book reboot to look forward to.
Why couldn't she come out in short shorts? Or maybe even a thong? That might get me to watch
My first thought was 'dominatrix costume'. She doesn't look like much of an amazon either. I assume Wonder Woman will not be WW related in the new series. No one wore clothing like this back then. Either give us authentic style clothing or leave Wonder Woman alone. Perhaps they should just leave Wonder Woman alone and let us enjoy the reruns or comics peacefully.
All this discussion over a show that probably won't last a season. This country sadly has the attention span of a nanosecond, so this costume debate will be over and done with just like the show will be. As someone else pointed out, Bionic Woman didn't last as a reboot, and neither will this show. But I'm done, moving onto the next commentary area to drop my other $0.02 so feel free to post responses folks-I won't be here to bother replying ;-)
Why do you all care about the damn colors. All I care about is dudes. I wanna butt slam my partner tonight. I love to travel the hershey highway!! Booze it up.
My wife misses the red boots, and the traditional costume, but I think she looks hip and hot. Go with it and we'll be watching...
Everyone will watch the 1st show. Just because of curiosity, but this show won't last! Remember the recent remake of Knight Rider?
Good grief!!! It's Horrific!!! that custome looks right out of a 99 cent store... I totally agree less barbie more Zena... way more Zena.
If the network really wants this show to be a hit, LISTEN TO THE FANBOYS/FANGIRLS OF WONDERWOMAN!!! WW doesnt look real, she is not relatetable in the comicbook demo ur lookin to aim for. More Zena less Barbie. Stay true to the comic, you'll get the ratings you'll lookn for. Look at CW's SMALLVILLE. It stayed on like forever. Its stayed somewhat to the comic. FOR MOUNT OLYMPUS SAKE BRING BACK THE RED BOOTS!!!
I am a forever lifetime fan of Lynda Carter...Wonder Woman.
Sorry, no one can EVER replace that costume. Lynda is a "natural beauty", she rocked it.
Las Vegas NV
She looks a little to Jewish for Wonder Women.
Huge WW fan – however, I give the series half a season if that!
Frankly, I couldn't care less about what color her f****** boots are! Why is everybody so concerned with the colors of the outfit and not whether the actress is capable of playing the role? Or possibly if the people making the show know what they're doing? It seems that people don't give a d*** about the substance, just the packaging.
I watched Wonder Woman when I was young and I can't wait to see how well it comes out. So far I think you hit it on the nose with the outfit and the woman!
What are geeks expecting? Its comic book fantasy... super hero costumes are going to be silly... even the last Batman movie Batman looked silly, regardless of how realistic or "dark" they made it.
Superman is silly... Spiderman is pretty ridiculous... the XMen regardless of all the leather to de-silly-size them... are still silly.
Silly to say super hero costumes are "silly".
I actually like the pants cause I also like dykos and butch types. No lipsticks need apply. If u got hairy legs and pits, u iz my kinda woman. Bend over and I will ram u with my strap-on disco stick!!
I want to see dudes schlongs thru their pants. If they only wore more tight leather pants. I wanna grab a jig-a-bos disco stick and schlob his knob!! Party down!!
Barb.. that was hilarious... !
The blue pants have got to go!!! Completely Lame (YES with a capital "L"). Oh and please return the red boots...keep it traditional. WW has always looked great. I mean look at the Alex Ross series and tell me if she can't be traditional and seriously kick-a$$ simultaneously...
MEGAN FOX ... way better choice.. Costume ..could have been purchased at Party City..
Come on Hollywood .. get with the public COMIC CON program... Lets US vote after all ..we will be buying the tickets
Megan Fox has NO BODY, or at least none that she was born with. Her only curves are implants. Plus, she's not that pretty unless she has makeup caked on. She would be just as bad of a choice as this girl.
Bring back the shorts & red boots!
Why did they bother to ditch the bikini bottoms in favor of pants, yet leave the bustier-style top and high-heeled boots? So much for the "serious, non-camp" ideas. Unless, this is what she's wearing in the comics these days? Haven't read WW since the late 80s.
Everyone who knows me knows I'm all about Lynda. The only thing great about this buzz is that it will introduce the REAL Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter) to a new generation, because kids' parents will run out and buy the 1975-79 "Wonder Woman" as soon as they see this new crap on tv. Epic fail. You can't replace Lynda Carter. It was done too perfectly to be remade. There.
wont be watching that garbage . DEK needs to stick to Law shows like the Kathy Bates hit & The Practice and leave Super heroes to The Smallville producers, they have done it corrrctly so far
If your gonna re-do something, wouldn't you want to do one better?
This girl doesn't hold a candle to Linda Carter's Wonder Woman – she's attractive, but not beautiful.
She got sum tigol bits, i aint even gon lie
I'm surprised she wasn't over 2 bills in order to satisfy the ultra feminist crowd. I think the pants should be vicky's secret boy shorts.... That would be hot. Maybe she should be nude and the eagle and stars should be tattooed on her bod. She is nice looking, but she is a bit of a "butter face"
..."a serious, non-campy take" on the Amazing Amazon", huh? That get-up looks more like something a dominatrix preparing for a 'fantasy party' would wear.
I would really prefer to see a Wonder Woman who had some muscle mass and did not look like Barbie in a Wonder Woman Suit. This person could be a super hero called "Chicken legs". Cripes! Do some squats!
100% agree...I could break this woman!
She's pretty, but her legs are too monochromatic–she needs red boots!!! I'll certainly check out the program.
Who do you meet in the bathroom of WW's invisible plane? Seymore Butts!
Are you kidding? She looks great! the cartoon should be redrawn to look just like that.
Sorry, but without the shorts and the red boots, it just ain't the same. For the love of god people, this is WONDER WOMAN we're talkin' about.
Her elbows are too pointy and she looks sinister.
She needs to go to the gym and then put the costume on. The boots need to be Red......Pretty Girl though!
She doesn't need to go to the gym, she needs to go to Burger King or McDonald's and gain about 30 pounds (and lose the implants). Maybe then she'll be curvy enough to play WW.
I'm glad that she is wearing pants. It makes her look clean and doesn't exploit women. It will help the focus on the hero not the womans body. I think she looks great.
as you can see she is standing next to the invisible jet. LOL
ooop... that was supposed to be "lifted my FRONT END" up a bit .. not my friend. :D
I don't personally see any problem with her. Wish the bracelets were more of a golden color though but that's small in the big scheme of things. Personality wise it looks like she could pull it off. We'll have to see. Wish her well. Oh and ah... dang I wish I had something that lifted my friend up a bit like hers is. ;)
The costume doesn't work because they aren't American. The US flag doesn't have baby blue and WW was an AMERICAN hero!!! Also, this girl needs to put some meat on her bones and tone it up??? Who's afraid of a stick with skin?? Not me!!! I agree.....EPIC FAIL!!
That blue is hideous. The pants should be darker – I could even settle for black. And the boots should be red. Also, let's lost that red liptstick. If she's supposed to be a modern corporate woman, she needs a sophisticated face.
Why change a good thing?????? Set out for failure and you will get it. Shorts, red boots. Lynda Carter had style and class. Seems these days class has gone out of style.
Red Boots! But you know, the REAL Amzons went t0pless! Do that, move the show to cable, instant success!
More serious fine, traditional costume a must. Stray from the formula or it will fall. All who stray fall. Look at the Bionic Woman. With all the great special affects and they strayed. They need real consulting. Ask away!!
I agree with everyone else – The boots have to be red but if this a modern day wonder woman the outfit has to be a bit more innovative....The lasso needs to be a belt instead of just hanging, the wrist cuffs, bracelet accessories-Her transformation from everyday wear to Wonder Woman should be seamless
The girl they chose is "O.K.". As previously mentioned, she could use a tan (they couldn't have found a built Hispanic chick for this??) The upper portion of the costume is NICE! But they should have left the short-shorts in place. And brought back the red boots. On appearances so far, compared to Lynda Carter in the 70's...I give the remake a 75% ("C" Grade). Let's see what they do with a storyline and see if the girl can act. Gotta love her dimensions though. Rock'n breasts!
Linda Carter had the Gap, what serious super woman would'nt?
Adrianne Palicki is no doubt a very beautiful woman and a talented actress, however I have always longed to see Nadia Björlin in the WW role.
I think Halle Berry would have made a better Wonder Woman......ijs
Costume can be change like Storm in X-men wears full white and in other season she wears full Black, Anyway in WW costume color is a symbol of America.
Those boots have to go. Is it a crime to keep the original outfit but update the plot?
this sucks. that is not the wonder woman i know. the old costume is a classic. this is doomed to fail. i hope they fix it before they air it or else this will be another superheroine flop.
1. Wonder Woman has bare legs.
2. Wonder Woman is curvy but athletic and muscular.
3. Wonder Woman does not have fake breasts.
So Adrianne doesn't really work on any level.
The costume is nice. But it would've bee a little more appropriate if a flesh-colored portion would hold it up over the shoulders. White stars would've made a nice adornment, as well.
I love me sum beckys. See i date dis chik ova ne black chik cuz beckys down fo nethang in bed but a sista dey always bout dat drama n want yo $ cuz dey steady broke ya feel me?
New Wonder woman, new outfit. Why should it matter what the costume looks like. The colors themes are still at least the same. In truth the costume has nothing to do with the story plot, except for the bracelets and the lasso. The shorts never had any special abilities. And I am positive that she will be able to fight crime just as well in spandex as she could in booty shorts. Seriously, how many times have they changed the Batman outfit. They didn't keep the original gray suit from the tv show and they did just fine with it. And so what if the outfit is changed, at worse it will keep perverts from watching this show and trying to oogle her lady junk and what a big whoop that is. And seriously, in today's editing, and with it not being a live action tv show, there won't even be a hint of a nip slip, unless it's in the script.
Excellent costume...but Red boots would be better!
Boots should be red. Pants tighter/up crotch. THOMAS, she is Star Spangled, though Greek cause it's the AMERICAN WAY and we send billions of dollars to everyone all over the world and you will need her when we stop.
I grew up on WW being one of my comic book heroes. But, please completely reinvent the whole character and the costume. It looks pretty silly! Not having watched a previous (year 2000+) series until a few years ago and being hooked, maybe put some "Dark Angel" into this one!
Will do in a pinch
Yeah, I still wear my WW underoos! They iz real hot. Makes me wanna get down with my lezbo friends. I am fully down with the butch ladies. None of dem lipstick dykos. I want to have a gal rock my chubby bones! My flabby pancake b@@bies are waiting!!
Fine lookin woman she is .which is one more the reason her navel should be showin somewhere. You have to go a long way before the TV veiwers of 2011 stay tuned about an outfit that is really not that revealing. This outfit doesn't show enough flesh and will disappoint the real Wonder Woman fans. It'll never stay on the air with that outfit. They'll go back to watching Baywatch reruns before they squint trying to see a sacred part of her anatomy. One season the longest then cancelled. Now MYSTIC of X Men. Thats at stay tuned outfit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was just joking. I would rather take Batman home, Christian Bale and give him a taste of my disco stick. We would be rockin da pooper all night long!! Now that would be a tough one to explain to da wifey!! Party down.
better get this http://www.SUPERSONIC.US.COM
No pants please and yes red boots
Yo Dee. I would love to see you in that costume. Maybe I can introduce you to my friend Ben.....Ben Dover. Let's do a little pumpin..in da rumpin!! Its cool. Your husband can watch...if he's into that stuff. Time to rock da poop chute!!
Even if there was never a Linda Carter this woman is still not right for the job....nor the costume.
looks great, now will someone tell me what she does when Nature calls? Pants permeable, perhaps?
I would Dearly Love to bring Adrianne home.
Would have a hell of a time explaining her to my WIFE, but I didn't say it was a Perfect Idea.
Times changes, why can't the look. Good update to the costume... Hopefully she can act as well (big boots to fill after Linda Carter).
Lynda Carter is the only Wonder Woman .
The whole thing needs to be dropped. what's with the shiny suit. if it were a feature film, then maybe. But for TV, its a bit too much...
I'm excited about WW coming back, but I have to agree with the majority that the costume, especially the blue boots doesn't work. Didn't the comic recently redesigned her look to be more modern with black? That would fit the show's less campy approach.
Go with something with more edge...look at the cape for present examples....does it have to be bright colors?
The change in costume is just a small detail that producers can change to avoid the glaring fact that this remake is completely unoriginal. Are there no creative minds left in Hollywood (aka: Remake-land)?
Needs RED boots....full stop...
This costume needs a gritty reboot now!
I miss the star shorts. of course, the bikini bottom look is ugly now, but they were the COOLEST when I was a kid. maybe updated the bottoms to boy leg shorts with the stars and then RED boots. My husband said that would be HOT...maybe I should try to create my own....hmmmm....
Lack of red boots kills the outfit. The pants are ok, wish they had stars on them but they're ok. The boots however need to be red because the outfit just doesn't look right.
Ugly. I love WONDER WOMAN! Even had the underroos. No red boots? Really? Continuity people.....
Christina Hendricks would have been SO much better in that outfit.
Too Fricking Ugly. Definitely, not the right person to play that part.
Catherine Zeta-Jones would be great for the role of wonderwoman. She portrays those qualites of WW strong beautiful caring and passionate. And the outfit should be more realistic real polyester cause the latex just isn't flattering.
I just realized she was the pregnant waitress in Legion. Why in the world did they pick her out of all the beautiful talented actresses out there? She's 28, older than Lynda Carter when she was WW, but she seems more girlish and wrong for the role. I also agree with everyone else about red boots. Speaking of awful remakes, they are also doing another Charlie's Angels.
The pants are OK, I suppose. But, the boots should be fire-engine red. Blue boots just don't get it.
if Amy Pond could beat you up, you're not Wonder Woman.
it has to be betteer than most of the crap on tv......still dont see it being a big hit....just a one year wonder....nbc neeeds to get real...i think a spin off of charm...or scurbs...two and half men...would of been a better fit....i want to laugh....must say glad its not another law in order
"real complex woman and not just a superhero." ....yeah we can really tell by the photo.
Wonder Woman was a mature woman not some little skinny girl...Catherine-Zeta Jones would be perfect for the part!, she's beautiful, sophisticated, and could carry the part perfectly.
The costume's alright... blue boots, red boots, doesn't really matter, however – why is her bottom half all covered up but the top still has a bustier and bare shoulders? If you're gonna cover the legs (for whatever reason) perhaps covering the arms as well would make sense!
Red white & Blue thong.
Thats the ticket.
The new costume is horrible! The original is the best. Stick to the original.
Seriously, the boots must be RED, but the blue pants gotta go!
I always thought the colors were obnoxious and silly.....they need to update the look and make it all in Black or mostly dark.
Looks too much like a Smurf on the lower half!
Seriously, who cares what she looks like? Anyone that has kids that are going to have a role model based on something they see on TV or a movie (or a comic book) aren't being raised right, especially if they might develop an eating disorder to try and look like them (and let's be fair, that can be a threat to some of the more fem male children, too. I remember a guy in the 2nd grade that would spin around pretending to be WW). It's no more okay to trash a girl for being underweight than it is to trash a girl for being overweight. I've seen girls automatically hate other girls because they are threatened by their looks, and even want to fight a pretty girl by accusing them of flirting with their boyfriend or husband, all because they are in the wrong place at the wrong time, with a hateful, jealous girl that's overweight.
Don't sweat the small things in life. The girl looks good (she HARDLY looks like some 12 year old boy with breast implants, as some people have claimed). I'd have to worry about someone's inside thoughts if they really thought that and weren't just being sarcastic. Also, she may have implants, but do we know this? If people want comic accurate, this is what a lot of the super heroines look like, physically, at least more than other actresses. She looks the part enough, let's see what her acting is like now in this role. If you ask me, regardless of whom they get, it's going to be a bad idea and won't last anyway, especially when you consider all of the crappy reality TV stuff out there, there's very little scripted roles left (and apparently the few that are, are just awful ideas anyway, like this).
As a huge fan of WW, I'm excited that there is a new series coming out. I pray they stick to the true character and not create some new bimbo-hero. As for the suit?....bring back the old one, at least the red boots! You guys ever heard of "if it ain't broke don't fix it"!!!
Always trying to fix something that was not broken. To: Lynda Carter; you are the one. Often imitated...poorly.
I think Adrianne looks great. And I'll always love Lynda Carter, I watched those when they first aired. I hope she gets to play Queen Hippolyta in this one. I personally think they should stick with the blue shorts and red boots if they stick with the red and gold corset. I can't wait for the series.
She is Hot!! Hot!! Hot!! Good call!!!!
Ewe. Why is her crotch so tall?
how come shes wearing pants?
The 1970's Wonder Woman show explained the reasoning behind the costume. She was supporting the USA in it's efforts during WWII. She wore the eagle (an American symbol), the stars (on the US flag), and her boots (red with white stripe – symbolizing the stripes on the US flag), she was meant to be a representation of the United States. This costume is interesting but what is the meaning behind it? Superheroes costumes have reasons for why they are what they are and not just because they are pretty.
The costume is fine, I just hope they have not made WW too young. The lead character in the BONES series is abit young compared to the lead character in the books the weries is based on. I love the books, cannnot watch the series after reading the books- there is something to be said for basing story llines on women with life experience.
Strange mixture of Cathy Lee Crosby and the comic book character. Missing are the stars, which to me is part of Wonder Woman's outfit. To be true to the comic book character the boots SHOULD be red, but my guess is this tv show will be nothing close to paying homage to the comic strip.
Wow, she can toss her lasso around me anytime! What a doll!
Quite a boot fetish by many of the posters.....makes me "wonder",,,,,
I can get on board with the pants, but not the boots. The boots should be red.
Isn't she a bit too thin for Wonder Woman? I mean she looks good and all but she doesn't seem very wonder womany.
If you're not going with the classic version of her costume, which DC Comics has altered over the years, then why not go with the totally revamped look DC is using now? Although I wasn't an instant fan of it, it's definitely a better modern version than the spandexy/PVC action going on with this one shown here!
Should stay true to the original. Would you change Superman's cape?
The plastic has to go. Go leather. And the boots should be red.
Finally, she looks "hot" but that hardly matches "serious tone" - make up your mind "serious or campy". The costume is campy.
I'm not looking to get killed by the faithful but... If you are going to go with a costume that looks like that (or Linda Carter's), maybe you should be doing a retro period show. I know it is too expensive to do a retro series but in 2011, where else but Vegas is that outfit not going to look silly?
Fun, either way you look at it! Boots should be red, all else is good. When does it start!!!!!
I'd happily let her rub that all over me in any way possible. Hot hot hot!!!
I think if u r gonna bring the charcter back then at least do the costume the same...Don't get me wrong I love blue but that is a little much. Noone will ever replace Linda Carter as Wonder Woman in my book but I am willing to see how this goes. Just bring the original costume back it looks so much better or at least the red boots so you are not over whelmed by the blue....
THE BOOTS NEED TO BE RED....THE REST IS FINE...
They should have kept it close to the same. I think the viewers would prefer it. Come on its no different then watching another episode of baywatch. And besides that is why I watch WW when I was younger.
Oh my, I approve ... more or less. I am old enough to remember Wonder Woman way before she turned up on TV. She existed only in print in those days. Adrianne surely will present a wonderful Wonder Woman ... with one exception. The blue pants really don't bother me, except that Adrianne has such beautiful legs, it is a shame to keep them hidden. On the other hand, blue boots? Where did that come from? Wonder Woman wore RED boots. Put them back. Blue boots? Thumbs down!
Okay, there's been a lot of talk here about what's healthy and toned. I was a size 1 or 2 for most of my life, not by starving myself, but because I had an incredible metabolism. My body temp rose right after eating and burned on until it was gone. I was constantly told how "great" I looked. I was not healthy. I had no reserve calories for illness. Try having the flu for a few days with no reserve calories to fight back. I had no stamina. Size 10's could beat me at anything that took longer than fifteen minutes. After years of struggling I've finally made it to a size 6 in the summer and 8 in the winter. I'm healthier and stronger than I've ever been. This new WW does NOT look strong and healthy to me. I know what she is, as do all the "hot" chicks out there. She's not my hero, she's my very bad memory. All you guys who pressure women into a size 1, just remember, stamina counts when it comes to performance. Unless you're not looking for women who can actually DO anything, because you can't actually DO anything yourselves. Just saying.....
Attractive but, Lynda Carter she ain't!
This is the costume Wonder Woman presently wears in the comics. It has been redesigned.
This isn't a perfect outfit, but it is wayyyy better than that LAME ASS outfit she is currently wearing in her COMIC!!!
Look at those bazoombas, lol. I wonder if she is wearing a wonder-bra, lmao. Love Wonder Woman, hope they keep her all about girl-power for the sake of my two girls.
I hate to say it, but I'd take one of Pam Anderson's stupid characters more serious than this.
Wow!What an anmazing costume that i have never seen before.The model fits the suit very well.I bet she is the most beautiful woman in the world.
Linda Carter was and always will be WW. Just start playing the 'sad walking away music' from the end of The Hulk because, as a new series, this is done before it started. No offense to the legacy or importance of this great character, but TV trends have moved way beyond for all ages and demographics and this isn't really an idea that sponsors will want to put their money behind. P.S. Rd boots are a must.
I think Rose Mcgowan would play the roll better, This young lady Ive never heard of and if i am going to see a remake of something I would like to at least know its going to be good.
The 'new' Wonder Woman SHOULD be Gina Torres in body AND voice. The woman is stunning and fits the bill. Is there a reason WW has to be 'white'. Race agnostic super hero's is were it's at.
Palickie is perfect, whoever picked her, should get a medal. That is one hot babe, and who cares if she can act.
Having worn proudly my WW underoos, and still loudly singing the super cool (it's all subjective) WW theme 35 years after my favorite show was cancelled, leaving me bereft and emotionally scarred that there were no more amazing women to emulate, I couldn't care less what the costume looks like. At least it isn't a thong bikini!!
Why aren't they copying what the show is based on? If they're going to just do some of it then we can imagine they'll do the same with the story lines , either copy the comic or do something completely different.
She is Skinny as a Rail ! She needs Better Curves – What would the Original Creator Think of the Painted on Looking Costume Bleah.
Looks like shes ready for a cartoon series.
It sure would be nice if someone, anyone could and would come up with something original. Can't see it going anywhere, except the trash can.
correction – she can't hold a "candle" to linda carter
the costume isn't horrible ... but seriously I don't see how she can run and jump and do what WW is supposed to do without her tata's falling out ... and why is the suit so shiny, is she trying to blind the bad guys by reflecting light at them ... and the girl in general ... once again it could have been worse, but it could have been better too.
oh ... and RED BOOTS!!!
I wouldn't worry about those falling out. They're bolted on and do not bounce.
she can't hold a cancel to linda carter
Whom fights crime in 4inch heels?
Meh. Another male construct "role model" for women.
* I always considered SMG as a forerunner of strong women superheroes and she must've had an underclothes bulletproof vest. Throw on a flannel and call it good, it's Marvel not Slayer!
I can deal with the pants but make the boots red.
To heck with the shiny blue pants. Red boots and a thong and maybe star spangled pasties! Now THAT would be entertaining and more today.
As for WW, the whole concept in the comics was ridiculous (i mean, an INVISIBLE PLANE???? – WHY???). The only thing that made it interesting was pre-pubescent boys got to look at a cartoon chick who had those bumps on her chest and a lot better legs than their scrawny female classmates.
Just thinkin' today's world is a lot more sophisticated than a series like this that tries to be anything but camp can relate to.
If folks want to see the complete history of the evolution of the Wonder Woman costume, they can find it on my site: http://www.carolastrickland.com/comics/wwcentral/costume_indices/wwcost1.html This version is modeled after the "alternate universe" version of WW that's been running instead of her in her comic since last June. They've deleted the most egregious parts of that outfit, but have kept the odd headband (they can't call it a tiara anymore). I have to wonder just how long it takes to put this on and take it off, and how many bottles of talc they go through each time. And for folks wondering about the Invisible Jet: the TV WW will have a fleet of jets that come in different colors, so she can match the proper one to her outfit of the day, I suppose.
It's one thing to have a good bust line, but it's another to try and shove it into a tooooooo small of a space. Let's not make Wonder Woman lewd! She is too pretty for that.
The question I would ask is do you really want us to take this show seriously? If you do, I have to agree wit the person in the article that this costume doesn't portray that image. My suggestion...add some tiny sleeves. The strapless top is too much. Reminds me of the 1950's Barbie swimsuit. I like the clean look you were going for in the blue leggings and blue boots but the gold trim on the boots disrupt that look. She might as well have red boots if you were going to do that to the boots. What about doing away with knee high boots and having her wear ankle height boots. It seems you have tried to advance her forward to our times but failed miserably.
Pink boots! :)
After comparing costumes, I still prefer the original.
Will the invisible plane have an invisible bathroom? And if so how does she wash her hands in the invisible sink?
I aint care bout no costum but dat chik adriane can definatly get it
someone mentioned Kate Beckinsale would have been better.
I couldn't agree more. Kate Beckinsale is quite possibly the most naturally beautiful woman and has an extremely hot body to match. If you haven't seen Underworld you have no idea what I'm talking about.
Her in skin tight black leather, I'm drooling at even the mental image.
All the Wonder Woman had on short azz short. this
Wonder Woman has on something over her legs....come on Hollywood
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM BOOBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALSO, THIS SHOW WONT MAKE IT PAST 5 EPISODES.
They don't plan on this show running for long. The first WW was awesome! This one....not so much. From the waist down it's bad & the actress bears no resemblence to Ms. Carter. Down right shame.
Sorry- delete the boobs and it's a 14 yr. old boy! Lynda Carter has the shape/look of a REAL woman. This choice looks anorexic.
Really didn't NBC learn after the failures of Bionic Woman and Knight Rider; bringing back all these old series to newer generations just isn't cutting it. Get creative make something new...
I know Linda Carter was perfection in that role but wow, what bad casting and a boring outfit. Wonderwoman was more athletic and had strong features. This actress looks like an ordinary girl going to a Halloween party not a superhero.
That's NOT Wonder Woman.......more like Wonder PANTSUIT Woman!! No way I'll support that silliness, bring back WW!!
This one is second rate. The 70's wonder woman (Linda Carter?) was much better looking. Lotsa thick hair. She was a lot of help to get me through junior high.
The costume looks ridiculous. Unless they're going for Xena-style campy then they should have tried to compromise between the look of the original costume and something that would be practical to wear while whuppin' some bad guys. As for the actress, she doesn't look athletic enough and she doesn't have the haughty sneer that I want to see on Wonder Woman. And before any of you freaks think that I'm saying that she's not skinny enough that's not the intention. She looks scrawny and soft. Wonder Woman is supposed to be a super-powerful freaking PRINCESS. This looks more like a girl that's pouting because her geek boyfriend convinced her to put on a pervy outfit for a night of role-playing.
Too bad she can never appear on Sesame Street, just ask Katy Perry.
She's a woman after all, she probably has a closet full of superhero shoes and boots of all colors. Let her be.
Just goes to show you that they are not paying any attention to the comic book, which recently changed Wonder Woman's look with a more modern version that not only looks good, but also realistic and would transfer very nicely to the small screen. This isn't the comic book Wonder Woman, they are just rehashing the show. Wonder Woman has no need for a jet, invisible or otherwise...she can fly. Der.
I am glad they covered her more, but that costume is ugly. They say they aren't going for camp, but that costume screams campy. If they wanted something more serious they need to get rid of the shiny material and darken the colors quite a bit. The actress doesn't fit the role of an amazon either. She's too scrawny and looks like she'll break down in tears if she breaks a nail. It's too bad they are doing such a discredit to the WW character.
She looks like a model, not an Amazon Princess.
Black boots and fishnets would be waayyy better...
I think the original costume should be used. It bring a sense of vintage back along with childhood memories...
You may think that reporting on the twitter posts of others qualifies as journalism. You are incorrect.
Wonder woman should not have such ugly breast implants and boney body shape I was so excited about the show coming to tv but they destroyed that; and changind the costume so much :'( blue boot?? :'( why??
My issue with the Wonder Woman Franchise is that they take an Amazon and turn her into a love sick man toy. An Amazon is a lesbian, OK?!! They weaken the strongest of them, the daughter of the Queen when they place her in a society full of men. The storyline should have kept the Amazon's abhorrence of men. But no, they make her love sick for the first guy that comes along, corny Col. Trevor and his playboy mentality. Here's a point in time where someone could have gotten it right. She could have remained dedicated to her code. It would have made her stronger even more so then making her susceptible to the triviality of the male species...
Everyone cries about how much they would like to have a gay/lesbian super hero, well...The New Tales of Wonder Woman should have been easy for someone with a brain!
Look give her a chance.how badly can hollywood glamorize this one.they had better be careful.women united might be there.girl power!.
Both the actress and costume design are laughable. Granted, I don't care much for WW, but seriously, this is a joke.
I want to like it, but suspension of disbelief only goes so far.
Seriously, WW is in a latex jumpsuit? Seems like somebody's dream BDSM to me, turned into a show so he could have it that way.
She's too puny to be believed as Wonder Woman. I doubt this twig can lift a sandwich to nourish her emaciated body, much less battle evil as part of the Justice League. I sincerely hope that she's just modeling the costume and isn't playing the character.
And Wonder Woman was ALL WOMAN, no badly done breast implants needed.
This show will be doomed after 1 horrible season!! Like Night Rider what a stupid idiotic idea and for dumb people who like Pabst Blue Ribbon beer!!!! IMO
Wow – she is gorgeous! Even if the costume is "wrong", she looks like an awesome crimefighter to me. I sort of liked the traditional supershorts and red boots, but I'll get over it.
What I may not get over is a totally non-campy WW show. They can tackle serious issues and keep the camp appeal (Buffy did this well). If the show takes itself too seriously, I'll probably lose interest pretty quickly, but I'm sure others would disagree.
I like it she sort of looks like the 1974 version from the pilot movie starring Cathy lee Crosby. It the movie she wore blue boots and pants. I bet they make this show like the movie more then the tv show of the same year.
The costume must have been designed by that little lady with the thick glasses in The Incredibles.
A skinny pale blush wearing amazon goddess who shops at Party City. Good job.
The actress looks embarrassed.
Too bad they did not find an actress who was not ashamed of her body and legs. The producers just lost millions in sales of posters and figurines. Multi-millions for casting the wrong actress and costume designer. The New Coke did not work out very well, and the New Wonder Woman costume will suffer the same fate. One good thing, Lynda Carter image as the best Wonder Woman will remain, and sales in her likeness will increase tenfold.
I grew up reading Wonder Women comics and watching the TV show. Adrianne fits the role perfectly as the new Wonder Woman, but the costume has to go. The whole appeal of Wonder Woman was her womanly qualities as exhibited in her costumne and her kick ass responses. Who wants a dressed Evil Knievel woman? And why does Wonder Woman’s costume have to be changed? I don’t see a new costume for Superman or Batman.
She doesn't fit the role AT ALL. She's a glamazon, not an Amazon. The queen of the Amazons would be WAY more buff than this chick. I doubt she could pull a bowstring or wield a magic lasso. Too bad the actress who played Xena Warrior Princess is a bit too old to play the part.
Why again does it HAVE to be a woman.
Het there is a club claiming that 5 parts still need to be filled. If this it true, how would I audition?
I DON'T LIKE RED BOOTS I WANT TO
SEE THE ORIGINAL WONDER WOMAN WITH HER BEAUTIFUL CLASSIC RED BOOTS.
DC changed the design of wonder womans outfit in the comics last year. this is an attempt at the new costume albeit very bad.
Is it all y'all men care about seeing is a women's chest? Ya can't stand up for what's right either? Do you want some little boy looking at your daughter if it were her like your doing now. I'd be thinking twice. Also, use the brain you were given & not the one your using now. You make your daughters, wives, & mothers look pretty bad. Use what you were given for right not wrong. This thing is supposed to be about the costume and not the "TRASH SITE" y'all are using it for. Get back to the subject & stick to it.
WW will never survive on screen... never. Mark my words. It's unfortunate, but there is no way to translate this character to live-action without it seeming campy.
The problems that come with changing things & updating isn't so much that change is bad. However, the change in such a time piece of original work just isn't completely right. Changing the boots is wrong, making the shorts isn't so bad until ya made them BLUE. What were ya thinking??? I know what I'm thinking & so are many friends... politely put "YUK"!!!
yeah, totally messed up costume. leggings rather than shorts? no big deal. blue boots instead of red? completely changes the image. she looks unbalanced. maybe the whole purpose is to keep people focused on the red (upper half, i.e., chest)? anyway, the whole blue boots thing makes her look unrecognizable. so she's wearing blue leotards and a red corset. the "wow" factor is missing.
Wow! So many responses to this article.
I keep looking at the outfit and thinking how much better she would have looked if they had kept the original costume. btw, the costume looks really cheap, as if you could walk into a costume shop and find a better one. The midriff looks totally plastic and cheap. I'm a huge fan of Wonder Woman but this looks like a flop.
Hate the costume. It looks like a "Rental Halloween Costume." (Like the ones you get in a cheap costume catalog) Honestly, I'm disappointed .
At least they lost the tiara. That pointy thing does some serious damage to a headboard...or so I've heard.
Your not right buddy. Or, better yet, sick on the head. Get up & pat yourself on the back for going back to the 1930's or something.
Excellent point Chitown! My thoughts exactly – how would a size 12 or more WW run down criminals? I can hear it now...."Hey you! Come over here! And bring me a box of donuts when you come." I think WW has to look to be in top physical condition or she's probably not a SUPERHERO.
WOW.....example number one from my comment, above. How very disappointing. and neanderthal. Thank you for contributing to the eating disorder population. You've definitely served the population well. Good job.
Just because you are skinny doesnt mean you are fit. I'm a size 11 but I am toned and fit. This actress has no muscle tone at all.
This show will be canceled even faster than Bionic Woman. Won't even make 6 episodes before being laughed off the air. Enough with superhero TV; leave it to the big screen where they have the budget to do it right.
You should take a look at the Cape, ok, so maybe you argue he's just a masked hero, not a super-hero, but still it's been decent.
Who's looking at her boots?
I THINK ELVIS WOULDVE LOVED THE BOOTS BEING BLUE OR EVEN BLUE SUEDE
Lucy Lawless for Wonder Woman!!
CNN posted a tiny picture, because the larger ones out there show off how fake and vinyl-plastic this travesty appears. It looks like a cheap Halloween costume for heaven's sake! I get the whole pants concept in this day and age, but no 'white' at all (ie: white stars) for Old Glory USA? Blue boots give the suit little contrast with the vinyl leggings. Boy, she is going to be sweating into those boots like puddles. At least they didn't give her that 1980's mini-jacket from the latest comic incarnation. Overall rating: Bleh. Next...
Perhaps she lost the white stars (both in the comics and in this show) because Wonder Woman is, how shall I put this.....NOT American. She was born to followers of the ancient Greek gods and is an emissary and ambassador from Themyscera. Painting her with the American flag never made any sense.
Lynda Carter and her costume were much better than this.
http://WWW.STORMINTERNETRADIO.COM will be commenting today about this WONDERWOMAN costume
There is only one wonder woman with beauty and class PAM ANDERSON
why does wonder woman got on pant, i dont remember she wearing pant. superman going to be british which is like giving a dog cat food, now is this thing that suppose to pass for wonder woman is british too ?
I guess star-spangled panties is too much to ask these days.
The costume only highlights her silicone breasts. It is the look of two basketballs stuck on a sheet of plywood. Phony phony phony.
she looks like a rip-off wonder woman doll from a toy store! those blue shiny spandex are awful! hopefully she can carry the 'complex' character they hope to portray. will wait and see...
WHAT? No PANTYHOSE! Not worth watching.
I don't like this outfit. I preferred the 70's one.Is kind of silly.Is like a super female hero suddenly turned into a modest prude.
Is Ned Flanders producing the movie or something? Linda Carter must be disappointed.
Actually, the classic Wonder Woman costume was redesigned to include the pants because Joe Straczynski (the current writer of the book) always felt that the blue bikini bottoms she always wore were ridiculous for a hand-to-hand fighter. It would be impossible to deliver a kick without a "wardrobe malfunction."
The problem with being Wonder Woman is if your don't look as good as Lynda Carter, it can't work
This girl has one tough act to follow!
Hate the pants!
Trying to hide her cheese!
All brains, no body. Keep the odd looking legging things. But c'mon BLUE boots! They are RED david.Sheesh!
Why does wonder women have to be white. Why not make wonder women latino or afican american?
Ummmmm...because she's not. She's actually Greek when you get right down to it.
Because she steal the peoples stuff she is trying to save.. thats why
I like the design of the costume but hate the fabric. It looks like the overly shiny cheap fabric used in discount store costumes. Keep the pattern. Buy new fabric and leather or something that looks like it for the boots.
There is nothing like the original . The real wonder woman and the real bat man. Once you lived it you can never replace it.
I hope that's not the real costume. It sucks. PANTS? Huh????
That looks like a costume a cheap stipper would be embarrassed to wear. Can't they do her any better? This looks nothing like the comics or any source material. Looks like a joke. I've seen better fan costumes at comicon.
What's a "stipper?"
The actress looks either unathletic or extremely uncomfortable with the photo shot. Her arms are in a position that doesn't make a lot of sense, give the position of her legs. She looks a little like a string puppet that has been ignored and gone diagonally backward. I hope that this is not some sort of disease.
First of all: Yes, her breasts are popping out of that top. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do about that, as there are far too many perverts to prevent this. Secondly: The rest of the costume design would be fine... except that it looks like it's made out of plastic. Seriously, cloth and metal, people, cloth and metal. Also, a little color differentiation between the boots and the 'pants' would be great, preferably by darkening the pants. Also, that particular lipstick is trashy. Off with it.
Again, my main problem with this outfit is that it looks like shiny plastic. Like a cheap costume bought at a party store. Everyone knows that even if your show is low budget, you STILL spend just a little bit more on the main characters, because the camera is on THEM most of the time, meaning that the flaws show up horribly.
Okay getting rid of the shorts I can deal with; however the blue boots gotta go. Wonder Woman HAS to be in Red boots.
BRING BACK THE TRUNKS!! She has beautiful legs - WHY NOT SHOW THEM????
OMG I CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT YEARS HALLOWEEN PARTY SO I CAN BUY THIS OUTFIT! :)
I could go for red boots myself, the professor has spoken.
Have you seen my mom anywhere?
Extremely hot chick beating people up?
I'm definitely seeing this movie.
It looks more like a version of the costume worn by Wonder Girl (Donna Troy), but I like it.
I agree with the idea that the costume could have been far worse. Or there could have been no costume. Some people are anti-costume because they think it automatically makes it campy, but I disagree. It was too much to hope for a costume exactly like the comic books (since that recent redesign is clearly just temporary) but this is actually a lot closer than I expected. Better than having no costume or doing something completely against the comic book like they did with the Cathy Lee Crosby TV movie back in 1974.
Sweet goodness! I didn't know Wonder Woman turned tricks!
This is a pretty sorry outfit. I assumed this was a joke the first time I saw it on another site. It looks like a girl dressing up to go to Dragon Con. I see this getting cancelled in six episodes.
The costume is okay, but the pants border on less sophisticated and elegant. But I have note issue with the actress. With all the options of truly exotic, statuesque actresses on the market, I dont know how Palicki can fill the bracelets and boots.
No Independent Thought.....
Are you kidding me? In this day and age, we should be seeing the real thing. Lynda Carter ran around in her outfit in the 70's and noone complained at all. Why go the conservative route? Let's have bare muscular legs and red boots, please?
She's ok and the costume is alright,,,both are nothing really great. I liked L Carter better.
Looks hot still
More cow bell!!
THE BOOTS MUST BE RED!!!!!! WW is an AMAZON...if you're going to hide her strong muscular legs...you at least need to give her the RED boots!!
I agree with the red boots, but WW doesn't need to be too muscular. Her actual "muscles" don't equate her actual strength. No more than Superman's muscles.
Its so lame. Far from anything she would wear. Get red boots back put sone stars on it then we can talk..otherwise u lost a viewer..
I am guessing you are NOT in the age demographic they are aiming toward.
Although I think the old school (start-studded split skirt) costume is the best, a modern Wonder Woman would best be served in the jumpsuits from the late '60s – although I'd like to see the bracelets and the lasso (maybe as a belt?) added – along with protective headgear that covers the sides and front of her head but allows her hair to show.
Terrific. Now Wonder Woman looks indistinguishable from a WWE diva. How the heck are we now simultaneously trashier and more modest than the we were in the seventies?
Costume $ucks. Might as well have her wear a burqa or a habit. Not gonna watch!!!
Probably a good thing you don't.
I think she looks alright. It is an updated look. However, I think Lynda Carter's figure represents women in general. Not based on the picture, I do feel that the series will tank big time. Superhero TV shows aren't what people want to watch anymore. I know Smallville has had a long run, but NBC + Wonder Woman (or other superhero) = 0. I hate to say it...just being realistic. People would rather watch the same-old same-old train wreck reality show. A show like this would fair better on a cable network, like HBO.
I totally agree. Ppl that pay for HBO, Showtime and such are more dedicated to watch these type of "niche" shows. Imagine a WW show with the budget of shows like True Blood or the Tudors. Not to mention more mature topics that could happen to WW.
I disagree people don't want to watch superhero shows. They don't what convoluted shows with way too many stories and characters crammed into an episode (Heroes.) They don't want shows with bad writing and no direction (The Cape.) What if they made a FABLES tv show on HBO or Showtime it would be EPIC!!
She did a great job in Legion. Good actress.
Look we watched WW in the 70`s because she had a Body Supreme. If they are going to be PC and NOT objectify her, DON`T BOTHER.
She can be a complete 21st century woman but to water down the T&A just to appease those women that want to complain will be the certain death of the show.
The boots should be red WITH clear heels, her cups should runneth over, and her narrow waist and full hips should be framed in calypgious short shorts.
Yeah...and if she wants to bend a tough full grown man into a pretzel and make him admit he is a pansy....that's what she should do.
The new costume should be leather, black leather; skintight, oooh, I'm a sucker for women in black leather. Oh Catwoman, where are you?
Where is she? She is hiding out as Anne Hathaway.
How many times does it take b4 these people realize u cant change the costume its part of the character.
So Christian Bale's Batman wears the 1960's Adam West Batman outfit? Take a look at the original WW...do you want the current WW to sport a 1940's hairdo?
I see nothing in updating the WW outfit. I have some issues with some of the texture and colors of the outfit, but it's not horrible. Maybe with this outfit she could use the black jacket the current comic WW wears...if it's cold or such.
I would like to see a costume she could wear without falling out of it every two seconds. The short shorts are good - dancers wear shorts like that so they can move - the top is another story. I hate the blue boots - horrible - this costume is awful. I have been waiting for a good wonder woman ... anything ... but it looks like another disappointment, already.
She looks really too thing for the rol. WW is a lot more atlethic. This girl looks like a costume not a real deal.
"Real Complex Woman and not just a superhero"? Jeez, do these guys even know that Wonder Woman was a comic book before a TV show? I hate it when people automatically dismiss superheroes as being silly, especially when they know nothing about the source material.
Couldn't agree more. Too many ppl on here are stuck in the Carter years of WW. There has been decades of time for the WW story to change. Heck, there was a time she didn't even have powers at all.
If you want to get back to the old school WW, Miss Palicki needs to end up bound with her own lasso. I am sure there would be more than one feminist that would be furious with WW ending up like a classic damsel.
Most of the DC Comics superheroes were kind of one-dimensional (I mean, come on, Superman's only weakness was a green crystal), but that's just DC's legacy, and I think it's great. Why can't superheroes just fight for good and justice and not be psychological basket cases? Marvel has done very well with their more complex superheroes, and that's great, too. DC Comics doesn't have to try to be Marvel.
This show is going to be EPIC FAIL. Who knew Wonder Woman has some falsies installed before she left her island? Too bad WB/DC still can't figure out the Marvel way outside of Batman for their properties. It's a shame they couldn't have made this show 10 years ago with Monica Bellucci as the lead. You know, a Mediterranean (Italian) woman who actually might remotely pass as Greek and is also tall/stacked like the comic character???
Well, at least all the dads will be able to enjoy watching her run, as mine did back in the day when I watched Wonder Woman.
Are you not saying you won't enjoy the run ;)
Maybe they'll put Baywatch slowmode running into the show.
WOW- This "women" looks for like a teeneage boy cross dressing with implants-disgusting.....I will only watch because I LOVE WW – and to watch "her" crash and burn. DC better fix this quick if it is to even have a shot at making it.
Lynda Carter's body is/was perfect and reflects how beautiful healthy REAL women can look.
I see we have another hater here. Ms. Carter is old and gone. Her time has past and it's time to move on. Miss Palicki looks pretty darn good here. If you want to see boobs up to WW chin, I suggest you might want to go somewhere else than this new show you haven't even seen yet.
Onesity is very unattractive and ugly. No one want to see fat spilling out of waist and back. The lard spilling out of your body is a sign of bad health.
It's nice to see a Wonder Woman whose toned and healthy.
@Gen - She's neither toned nor healthy. She's 10-20 lbs underweight, and so thin that she had to have prosthetic boobs put back in her chest because she starved hers off. I don't think you have any idea of what fit, toned women of a healthy weight actually look like. Today's media portrayals of women are WAY out of touch with reality, and have without a doubt skewed your perception of a healthy, fit woman.
You hit it on the head. The costume might not be so bad if it were filled right. The top half is full of silicone. Hope she's a great actress, but do you really HAVE to be to play WW? This show will last about as long as the last Bionic Woman. Too bad.
I miss Isis.
Thumbs down on blue boots. They should really make a motion picture and let James Cameron direct it.
If they wanted to make it more realistic they should have given it a more antique roman look....just saying...
Don't you mean Greek?
Costume change sucks. Gotta have the red boots with white stripes. Too many changes and fans won't see it as their beloved superhero. Look what happened to other recent remake of 70's and 80's superhero tv shows on NBC.
Always remember, they are also shooting for that younger demographic. The one that will get companies to buy commercial time.
The costume is an eye catching combination of motion, flash, and brilliant color; I like the costume.
Wonder woman was my absolute idol growing up, and what I saw in her was a powerful strong woman who could take on anything. She was kind, smart and very sophisticated. For some reason this costume doesn't really portray this to me.
I agree...she is too scrawny. She needs to have more of a Xena the Warrior Princess look. But sad to say, I don't think girls are the target audience here, a move they may regret.
Wonder Woman is also suppose to represent femininity at some level. Older depictions of WW had her much moe dainty that Xena or the current WW. I think this lady falls in the middle.
You thik they are trying to "tone it down or trying to cover up that she is the wrong body type?
Exactly what should her measurements be?
Work it Wonder Woman!!! Drop down and get your Eagle On Girl !!!
Nah, Wonder Woman didn't have breast implants. Find a real woman.
Well played Sir! My first thought was WW is the real deal and not cosmetically altered. I wonder if the new WW will do the spin?
How did you know that her boobs are fake?
I hate the new costume in the comic book. Hopefully, they have her battling other femme fatales from the comic; Cheetah, Giganta, etc.
I don't like it. Too plastic looking. Also, this actress is not curvy enough – and I'm not talking boobs here. She has no hips, no muscle tone on her arms or legs.
This is an interesting look at the changes in the costume over the years:
No kidding. I think I like 70s and 80s Wonder Woman best. She's the perfect blend of curvy and buff, with the mane of black hair that is quintessential Wonder Woman.
Are you kidding? Don't think the Wonder Woman can be replaced. She was/in special.
Well ......I dnt know I. Dnt wanna judge it it 2 hard just yet I wanna give it a shot the costume is different let's just see how she portrays the 7th wonder ....
Thank you for giving the series a try instead of trashing it like so many others on here that are just basing their opinions from a single image.
CHANTEL OBRIEN FROM THE BACHELOR WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER. SHE IS SOOOOO HOT.
I have to stay loyal to old school on this one... bring back the blue bottoms with white stars, and the red boots! Otherwise my underoos don't match.
That is awesome! Love it Amber!
This looks like cheap rubber and plastic with the wrong shade of blue, and the wrong colored boots. I am more intimidated by Barbie. DC comics please fix this.
she looks ridiculous and the show will flop.
Amen, brother. The series will go the same distance as the new Bionic Woman Series.
And exactly how should she look? At least make your criticism constructive instead of typical hater chat.
Do you have a point, or are you just angry and depressed?
I don't get the big whoop over the costume. Who's writing this show? Superhero shows have never gotten a fair shake. Hopefully if there is superior writing, this thing can go on long enough that we can see different outfits.
She looks hot as Wonder Woman. I like the combination of the original costume and the most recent one. I am looking forward to watching the series.
They must have a plastic surgeon on that island that wonder woman came from.
Let's start off with Miss Palicki....she looks pretty darn good as a modern WW. She has a "realistic" body instead of Linda Carter's hourglass shape. Don't get me wrong, Ms. Carter was a fabulous looking woman but her bodt type isn't exactly the modern portrayal of sporty/healthy.
Now the costume looks pretty good overall. The only problem may be that if WW has to run, her outfit better be made by the gods of Olympus or she is going to be pouring out of her top. The leggings and boots are ok as far as texture goes. Not feeling the overall blueness though.
All in all, not a bad modern day version for WW. Now I am curious how Diana Prince will look...plz no bun.
Your name is Wally? Perfect.
She has a more REALISTIC body than Lynda Carter???? You must be OUT OF YOUR MIND!!!! Most women are NOT a size 1 or 2!! Lynda Carter is healthy and epitomizes the ideal woman's figure. What planet are you living on??
@peacelove- when you look at most physically fit women and the current WW in the comics, this lady here fits the image better than Ms. Carter. Again...not hating Carter's WW at all, but it's dated look.
@Jesse- I hope you are a big enough DC fan to know who Wally West was.
This a more realistuc body than the old Wonder Woman??? Yeah right. This girl has no hips! Is that really what guys want? If so, no wonder you're always disappointed.
@dingding-Good grief.....how wide of hips do you want her to have? Birthing hips? She's suppose to be a heroine that can kick butt, not a 1960's playboy bunny.
Honestly, why is her body type such a big deal? So what if she's skinny? I like the healthy, toned look. No one wants to see fat spilling out of their waist and stomach.
BTW, skinny women have hips. All women have hips. Assuming that only large women can give birth successfully is ignorant.
Peace love-you are so right on. @Wally West...what turnip truck did you fall off of? Linda Carter was naturally beautiful. Not vacuumed with pumped up boobs. Honestly, comparing some of the 70's icons to today's make the women in our era look like caricuture freaks.
I am sorry...do you know something about Miss Palicki that no else does? Plz share with us.
Hello, Wonder Woman is an Amazon. She beats things to a bloody pulp without breaking a sweat. She's the ideal of an empowered (but not necessarily feminist) woman. She is NOT a pencil. She should be represented by an air of confidence, by being physically fit for battle without being muscle-bound. She should not be wearing a movement-constricting outfit that creaks when she moves. Lynda Carter looks to me like the ideal Wonder Woman. Adrianne Palicki looks to me like an underfed model posing for fanboys.
Consider who is producing this. David E. Kelley–the king of the Eating Disorder Divas. Remember Ally McBeal. Jane Karowski was considered the fat one. Several of the women have now come out and admitted to eating disorders while on the show. I am not saying he is to blame for their eating disorders or that Ms. Palicki has one. I am just saying Mr. Kelly seems to have a certain type he likes to cast. (i.e. Calista Flockhart, Portia De Rossi, Courtney Thorrne-Smith, Laura Flynn Boyle). To his credit he also gave us Camryn Manheim, but had several episodes dealing with her weight issues–never an issue for the skinny girls.
Realistic? She's a twig with fake boobs. Nothing realistic about that at all. While it's true that Lynda Carter did have some padding and corseting, at least no part of her body was made of plastic.
@The Flash – you are one of the reasons why so many young women have eating disorders today. Your view on what women are supposed to look like is distorted. Very disappointing that several men here feel that this type of body is considered normal and healthy. Women are supposed to have curves and look like women – not barbie dolls. Sorry to shatter your ideal image.
"The only problem may be that if WW has to run, her outfit better be made by the gods of Olympus or she is going to be pouring out of her top. "
You say that like it would be a bad thing or something?
Have nay of you seen how the male superhereos are portrayed. They ARE SUPPOSED to be the most athletic, elite perfect people there are. So it's not believable to have a fatty or o toothpick in this role. Get off your pulpit people and read the story and its history.
You cannot make WW PC it's just not possible with keeping with the story. WW is not an average middle-aged mom of three nor should she ever be portrayed that way. She is a freaking AMAZON PRINCESS not just Jane Q. Public, such ignorance...
Aside from the terrible blue boots, I think this woman is perfect for the role.
@Peacelove – You are correct. Most women aren't size 1 &2. That's because, like most men, most women in the U.S. are fat. Let's face it, anything over a size 8-10 depending on height starts getting into "too many Big Macs" territory.
For the person calling Linda Carter perfect...
Linda was so skinny that they added padding in her shorts so that she'd have a rear end. I am not a big fan of this actress' face for the part (she doesn't exhude the strength of the single greatest symbol of feminine power in American Comic Book Mythology), but in the end she's just a human. Let's wait and see.
I'm sorry...since when is a curvy woman not the picture of health? That's rather insulting...but coming from a male, expected. I'm disappointed to see that this new WW isn't as womanly as her predecessor, and her drawn portrayal. Sometimes hips are necessary. Besides...she's supposed to be an amazon...not a runway model.
Give me lynda carter's jiggle-fest any day.
I can live with the pants, but the boots really should be red. I am assuming this is only one of several costumes, however. If you remember the original series or follow the comic books, you will know that Wonder Woman, unlike many other superheroes has several different costumes. A woman should always have the option to change her look.
As for Adrianne Palicki, I guess we will just have to live with that choice. I believe Nadia Brojlin would have been a much better option.
I don't mind them getting rid of the shorts (hopefully they've gone the way of the invisible plane) but boots must be red!
@John...John, why do you find it necessary to insult people because of wht they think?
Jonh is just a whiner and hypocrite. If this WW would walk up to him, he would melt away before her.
I hear you, John, but why do I get the feeling that you're just bitter because she looks better in the costume than you do?
John, you obnoxious jerks are hilarious!
John, John, John, if you are going to insult someone, try to spell their name correctly. Especially when it is on the page right in front of your eyes.
I agree. The blue boots look... wrong.
All they are going to do is showcase her size 1 figure with big boobs leaping through the air. Trashy TV at its best.
and the problem is??
Jealous much, Rita?
Hey Rita....Most men might have grown up admiring...or more...the 70's WW, but I appreciated the virtues of her character....fight evil, help the defenseless and pride for our country. So much, that it such an impression on me, that I constantly praise those values w my 10 yr old daughter. I think that the 70's lib movement caused way too much strife between the genders, that now everyone pretty much criticizes everything at first glance w scorn and disdain....not even getting a fair chance to be judged. Hope the show is a success....
Yeah, because WW should have to reflect the modern American and be a size 12 fatty....
A woman who is strong enough to go toe-to-toe with Superman, who's absolutely fearless and is a powerful female role model....Who the heck needs that, huh Rita?
Yea for big boobs flying through the air.
Too many to mention them all but how about Jersey Shore, Housewives of whatever, Dawg the Bunny Hunter, Jerry Springer (is he still alive), the babbling woman's ensemble shows and cable 'news' show.
I still like the idea of flying boob though.
Wonderwoman rocks, big boobs, invisible plane and all...don't be a hater
She's a comic book super hero, you gotta expect some...er...hyperbole.
I think she looks fantastic, despite the cheesy costume. I can't wait to see her kick butt.
Funny how women never complained about the skintight outfits showcasing the bulging muscles of the male superheros in the movies.
"Funny how women never complained about the skintight outfits showcasing the bulging muscles of the male superheros in the movies."
The only skintight outfits I liked were on the X-Men. The only reason I see for anyone to wear an outfit like this while fighting crime is to hope that a boob will pop out and distract the enemy during a fight. I agree they should keep some of the spirit of the comic - but if this is supposed to be a serious show, they have some work to do on the costume.
Men might understand this female view if their clothes gave an accurate image of how large their penises are.....And being judged for that penis size. Maybe we should have male actors wearing skin tight pants to show their endowments...seems only fair.
Well that certainly doesn't look like something you could buy at Party City.
Wow. What a beautiful lady. She's perfect for this role! She looks like she's straight out of the comic book. Well done.
Those boats should have been RED, period.
Those boots should have been RED, period.
I wouldn't mind it if her boats were red.....
yeah I don't know why, but they should have stuck to the red boots...changing the dumb bikini bottoms was a good choice though
I'm sorry but, the this woman does NOT have a very pretty face without makeup...a good body but, No Linda Carter face that's for sure...nothing personal but, some of the chicks on the party city costume boxes are much prettier....lol
Yes...I'm a fat loser, but who cares...lol
Red boots – it's really not an option.
Totally not the right person. I think someone like Evangeline Lilly or Kate Beckinsale is more appropriate. It has to be someone who is somewhat comparable to Linda Carter in order to be believable. I agree that at the very least the boots need to be red.
Lady is GREAT, Costume However SUX!! If sticking with the Story that she is an Amazonian Princess, They DID NOT Have Pants sorry to Say!!! Grated Skin Tight Pants are the Fad of TODAY, but if Sticking with the Gist of the Story - NO PANTS!! If I were to judge the Series by Just the COSTUME, I DON'T SEE IT, as something I would care to watch thinking that the story would be as STUPID & SILLY as the Costume
I agree, nowhere near as cute as Linda Carter.. And bring back the shorts andd red boots. What's wrong with a little bit of leg. Oh, and boobs are always good. Who doesn't like boobs?
I agree boots should be red...
Don't live in past! Get over the lack of red boots – she looks beautiful.
I think the costume is great. She wears it well.
Who cares about the color, you nerds? What about the fact that it's a glorified bondage costume? Head to toe in tacky leather? This looks terrible.
She looks beautiful. I can't wait to watch the show. I used to watch it in the 1970s and was a big fan.
I think this show will go the way of The Bionic Woman in that it will be cancelled after 1 season. The actress is beautiful no doubt but looks nothing like WW from the comics. WW has black hair not brown. She also also has muscles I'm not saying she has to be Chyna (from WWE) sized but she should have some definition. Also why is she so pale? Does the WW pictured actually look like she grew up on a tropical island? That's a rhetorical question by the way!
"Also why is she so pale? Does the WW pictured actually look like she grew up on a tropical island? That's a rhetorical question by the way!"
Here's the rhetorical answer; It's what people want to see, and she IS closer to Linda Carter, regardless of what others here think. You might reverse your question regarding the highly controversial casting of a black man as Thor in Britain's comic/tv series. Everyone knows where Thor is from and what he is supposed to look like. But I recall Wonder Woman from comics back in the '60s. She was portrayed as white, with blue eyes and perceptively "pale" skin. (Classic authors have described such skin as "white a the finest alabaster." Any intent to demean here? Just a rhetorical question.
I'd prefer they stick with the iconic costume. The new outfit's not bad, but it's not very cool either. =/
Tanya has it absolutely correct. The boots needed to be red, with those blue pants.
Those boats should have been RED, period.

I don't like her AT ALL. I hate the costume, I hate her face, I HATE this choice for Wonder Woman! She looks so uncomfortable in that pose. Blech! There were so many other women I could think of who would have been a better choice. Almost anyone would!
She looks like a 12 year old dressed up with too much red lipstick. Lynda Carter carried a sophisticated, mature style. You can't see that here.
Every woman has more than one outfit in her closet!!!!
Like this show is ever going to last. NBC is pulling this out of their butts. Wonder Womnan fit in well back in the 1970's with Linda Carter but I can't see the American public these days embracing this show. The pilot will bring in good ratings but lets see if it makes it past the 9th episode before being yanked.
I think liza minelli should be the next wonder woman.
Well, she doesn't have the face for it, that's for sure. Wonder Woman's facial structure has changed over the years, with the original comics evoking the cherubic roundness of Rosie the rivetter as that was the iconography of feminine strength at that time. In the past 40 years, her face has become more angular and hard, high cheek bones and sharp jawline evoking a toughness that could stand up to a superman. This actress has the low cheek bone round face that doesn't exude the same strength as Superman.
Imagine a guy with Seth Rogan's face playing Superman. Ryan Reynolds fits the green lantern bill for a reason (among others), he's got the face for it.
I'd like to see more muscle on her – but hey – that's a lot to ask for someone who is going to portray an AMAZON.
Whatever, honestly, she doesn't *really* matter. If the writing is strong, the part will be hers. Buffy the Vampire Slayer didn't last 7 seasons on the strength of Sara Michelle Gellar's acting. It was all about the scrpts.
The upper portion is just fine. We need to see more leg. How about a short mini skirt. Color doesn't matter. Just more skin.
She looks good but it doesn't matter. David E. Kelley is going to ruin this show.
Eh.... Not nearly as good a match for the comic book as Lynda Carter.
Agree, the boots should be red.. Everything else though is tight.
Yes, she does look straight out of a comic book – Dolly Parton in zero gravity.
A younger Lucy Lawless would have been a perfect Wonder Woman, hands down. As for the costume, it looks like sometime you can buy from a Halloween costume outlet. I'm not a big fan of the big eagle on her breastplate nor the light blue color on her pants. I think a darker shade of her costume would have worked better, along with a bad new pair of boots. :P
I like the way she fills out (spills out of) the top!
Who cares what color the boots are? Let's see those pants from the back!
I think the actress does not resemble a amazon woman. She is too thin and does not have a presence. This costume is too hollywood politically correct. This is a cartoon character. Red boots I think should be returned and the woman should be bigger and taller. Linda Carter had a presence. When she was in Sky Hi, she had that presence.
new wonder woman costume must have RED boots w/WHITE stripe not blue w/gold! arm bands must be gold not silver! I have worn the WW costume on too many occasions and fashioned my own boots for it to accept this blasphemy.
Too much blue! Red boots would do!
They should have chosen Kyle Richards from Beverly Hills Housewives as the new Wonder Woman, she's just as beautiful and resembles Lynda Carter
I can't believe they changed the color of the boots.
It's a really HOT costume but perhaps the show will allow for summertime short shorts and shiny nylons from time to time!!!!
They should have let Katy Perry play this role she would have done amazing..
