Wonder Woman gets a costume change already?

Wonder Woman has always been a master at changing her costume unnoticed, but not this time.

Actress Adrianne Palicki, who portrays the Amazing Amazon in NBC's upcoming "Wonder Woman" series, was spotted filming an episode of the show in a decidedly different costume from the one she sported in a recent publicity photo.

The tiara, bustier and bracelets are all still there, but the shiny bright blue pants have been replaced by what appears to be a cotton version in a deeper shade. Those blue boots are also now back to Wonder Woman's classic red.

Vulture speculates that the network may have listened to fan criticism over the superhero's earlier attire, which has ranged from likening the ensemble to a stripper outfit and comparing it to a costume bought at a Halloween store.

Does Palicki's revamped costume sound like an improvement?

    this is going to sink like the remake of catwoman with haley berry. why do they keep turning all the female action heroes into street walkers? i was a huge fan of wonder woman and catwoman (the original) growing up. i loved the underworld series and any action movies with angelina jolie, xena (even if it was corny at times), the new battlestar galactica with starbuck, and la femme nikita with peta wilson. they all were tough, beautiful women who didn't have to look like @%$*@ to get the job done. i won't be watching this bs. i am so disappointed

    The new pants looks much better that does light blue shinny ones and top part of the costume I think should be a different cloth material.I still like the original bathing suit look or skirt look with a dark blue with stars.I'm glad the blue boots are red again.I hope to see the spin around transformation and the invisible jet back . I think that paradise island should be in the new series and the series may be sucessful.

    Wonder woman has always been a beautiful action star, which is nothing to be ashamed of. Not sure why they want her to wear pants instead of the usual body suit. I like the fabric of these pants better then the first costume as the material is more natural looking, but the color is not so attractive. I would go with a color closer to the original wonder woman Lynda Carter, blue satin. The top also is too tight, seems like it may fall off. I would raise it up an inch.

    As I said before, this series will do for Wonder Woman what George Clooney did for the Batman film franchise.

    As a woman i never saw the issue with wonder woman's leotard. Pants are just too constrictive, and they look like those new jean-PJ pants. And i don't know, this girl just looks too damn young to be Diana, I mean she's pretty good for her, but she doesn't come off as an 'ambassador of peace' more like a Playboy bunny during halloween (which is funny cause if that was the case she'd be in a leotard!)

    She needs fake hair added to make her hair fuller, it's too thin looking. Also, the top part of her outfit can be regular cloth, doesn't have to be shiny plastic looking leather. make it around the stomach regular cloth, then around the bust make it a harder LESS SHINY material that molds, the gold can be made to look less fake too, it's not that hard, i've been to cons that have better cosplayers.

    when i first head they (hollywood) were bringing back to the screen i was elated. but then script details were revealed, and they were awful. then there was the first costume, and we all know how bad that was. and now we have a new improved costume, only its not. it looks tacky and cheap and i think the new interpretation of wonder woman will be terrible. i hope nbc is listening and i hope they make changes otherwise this pilot is headed nowhere fast.

    Heels are not exactly easy to run in – especially if you're fighting crime..besides, the stunt actress would most likely have the flats on to do the stunts - if you ever watched the original TV show – that happened all the time – like no one watched the dailies to day – OOPSS. But if you're going to do that blue pants – atleast do lycra or spandex - now it looks silly with cotton.

    This is much worse! Why don't they just put her in a sweatsuit and a parka? Idiots!!!

    I don't think people want her to be half naked with heels, they just want her to have.. you know.. Wonder Woman's actual costume.

    A new wonder woman would be nice she's not nearly as attractive as the orignal amazon so it really doesnt matter what she wears but if the writing doesnt suck it might last the entire season who will be villans and co stars

    Yes just like a typical male pig to want WW to wear heels and to be half naked. Why are men always a bunch of dogs!

      And you call yourself the "head Diva in Charge"? What an attractive charmer you must be, too.

    She needs the pants, or else a shave around the Northern Territories, if you know what I'm sayin'.

    Nope, the new one is worse .... much worse. A consequence of spineless producers caving in to crying fanboys once again.

    Flats ! not heels ! WW hadn't worn heels in the comics since after '85.
    Plus, I like the classic costume, the other costume ? It reminds me of the Aqua-suit that Lynda Carter wore on her show back in the '70s..

    We could go for n!pples on the WW costume! Better yet, just airbrush the top part on! Jiggle! Sweet!

    STILL AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL! I am not going to bother even tuning in! I do not understand what in hell is so difficult about getting it right? And these people are paid millions? Aren't things supposed to improve with time? Do they call this an improvement? Candy apple red, Lilly white and royal blue, star-spangled leotard. NOT NAVY JEANS, DULL RED AND TARNISHED BRASS. She needs thick lustrious black hair, not stringy! Also, Wonder Woman wears heels, not flats! FAILURE! They still think they know whats better than the WW fans! Seems to be the trend in this country right now. Cram what people don't want down their throats. This will result in failure.

      Wow. Ease down, dude, your blood pressure shouldn't rise so much over a TV show about a fictional character. Take a deep breath and repeat five times: "It's only TV."

    Her costume needs to be much skimpier. She really should be fighting crime in a bikini or less.

      As a lifelong fan of WW I am looking forward to the new show. I had a moment of disbelief when the promo shots of the costume were released. OK, let's remember one thing...the show is based on the comic book which is steeped in Greek Mythology. I have hopes that they keep as much of her background intact as possible but after the costume pic and the other things I've read about the show (NO powers of flight??? No invisible plane...ok, I can deal with that...but she has some sort of hover craft?? SERIOUSLY?
      It would be nice to have WB/DC remember that there is a reason why WW is the most famous superheroine...she has a costume designed to show allegiance to freedom and democracy (NOT designed to look like it was purchased on the corner of Melrose Ave)...Having joined in on some blogs a discussion started that (MUCH like Batman AND the WW comic and the 70's show) Diana should have different variations of the iconic costume for different purposes. After all, she is a woman but she doesn't need to look cheap) ;)
