Wonder Woman fans rejoice! The Amazing Amazon will be wearing her iconic blue shorts when the TV show airs on NBC.
That's not to say the two previous costumes Adrianne Palicki has been seen in—one with bright, shiny blue pants and a second with navy cotton pants— are going away completely. According to NBC president Robert Greenblatt, the superhero has several costumes hanging in her closet.
"There was an initial outcry about the long pants—you know, skintight pants as opposed to those little shorts [worn by Lynda Carter in the original TV series],” he tells TV Line. “But the shorts were always planned. They are actually used in the final confrontation when she beats Veronica Cale [Elizabeth Hurley].”
Though fans have been critical of Palicki's costumes as well as leaked portions of the pilot's script, Greenblatt says the network isn't paying too much attention to the naysayers.
“There’s always critiques of everything,” he says. “If we listen to all of that, we would probably never be able to get the job done."
