Wonder Woman Pilot Fails to Make a Good Point About Vigilantes and the Law

Wonder Woman Torturing a Suspect

We’ve been following the Wonder Woman show since it’s inception, and although it would now appear that the show will not air, the pilot episode has made it’s way on to the Wild West that is the Internet. I managed to track down a copy and after giving it a good watch, I had many thoughts on it, mainly pertaining to how legal show veteran David E. Kelley has attempted to make an interesting point about Superheroes and the law, but failed to make a compelling argument or to come to a reasonable conclusion on this front.

NBC Will Not Air Wonder Woman

I really tried to get excited about Wonder Woman. David E Kelley didn’t exactly have a lot of credentials for Superhero shows, but at least he knew how to write shows with female leads.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Adrianne Palicki will not appear on TV as Diana Prince or Wonder Woman. Apparently the big problem wasn’t so much the costume (which fans derided) but Kelley’s script that didn’t have enough action and test audiences reported mixed reviews.

So what will happen now? Warner Bros TV might try to shop the show around, they do own several cable outlets and have a stake in the CW. For that matter, the CW might take the show they previously passed on since Smallville’s final episode airs tonight.

The short history of Wonder Woman can be followed here:

Wonder Woman Set Pictures, The Costume Has Changed!

On the left, we have the first on set picture of Adrianne Palicki in the Wonder Woman costume. As you can see, the costume has change significantly from our first look. The shiny pants are gone, and the boots are now red. The stars on the legs were there before, but are a little more visible thanks to a change in the material.

The photo on the right is the same costume worn by someone who is clearly Palicki’s body/stunt double. Or maybe she’s making a weird face. Either way, she’s jumped up on top of that car, so we can look forward to Wonder Woman doing that in the pilot.

What do you think? Is this an improvement on the costume, like the old way better, or still think another direction was needed? Leave a comment below!

TV’s Wonder Woman Costume, Logo, and Villain

The pilot episode for NBC’s Wonder Woman show is being filmed currently, and with it lots of official and unofficial news. Firstly is the logo for the show, snapped off the back of one of the chairs on set courtesy WonderWomanTV. This may be a temporary logo, and might not even be used in the show’s titles.

Now the costume….
First of all, I’m just going to say that Adrianne Palicki As Wonder Woman is ridiculously hot. Of course any attractive woman in a costume that tight with that much cleavage was going to be hot.

Is the costume accurate? Well its certainly nothing like what Lynda Carter wore, showing off less leg and a lot more shine. Seriously, is this made out of plastic? The pants aren’t a huge deal honestly, but they probably should’ve gone black instead of blue for the final version of the outfit. Likewise, red boots. In fact, the Jim Lee version of Wonder Woman would have worked great for a prime time show, leather jacket and all. But yeah, the costume hits all the basic notes of a Wonder Woman costume, including the tiara, the bracelets, and of course the bust.

Its about Smallville quality and easily more impressive than The Cape, though not quite as cool as Dina Meyer’s Batgirl from BoP. Its seriously bright, and if the tone of the show matches the outfit, then we might be headed for disaster. On the other hand, David E Kelley got NBC to pick up yet another super hero show after a string of disasters, so I hope there is something to this. And maybe when she’s not in a photography studio, the outfit won’t look so over-saturated.

As a bonus, we also have a look at Elizabeth Hurley as the show’s villain, who is yet unnamed. Also, since she’s just wearing normal clothes, we don’t have any leads. In fact, this could very well just be a photo of Elizabeth Hurley walking in LA. Photo from Superhero Hype!
