Well it looks like David E Kelly and NBC heard the cries of online comic book and Wonder Woman fans as they responded in sheer horror to the new costume donned by Adrienna Palicki. The first version was revealed a few weeks back and it was nothing short of the 90’s ‘Joel Schumacher’ style mess (on the right) being bright, bold, and goofy. Not exactly the ‘realistic’ take that Kelly was advertising and fans were demanding.
They went back to the drawing board- well sort of. The new images reveal that there are a few improvements. The most notable are the darker blue pants. Looks like they are a cloth material instead of the shiny vinyl type. Her boots have been returned to their original red sans the stripper heels, that redesign will probably saved her from breaking her neck someday. It also appears that her make up is a little more subtle and not like she is getting ready for a Glamour Shot session.
These are all just minor improvements. She was upgraded from ‘overt dominatrix’ to ‘Comic Con cosplayer’. The shimmering corset is still a problem to me and I think her headband is still all wrong. I hate to be a hater. I REALLY want this to work but from the director, casting, and the costume, this feels like a doomed project from the start. Below is a pic as well as a video of her in action. None of it gives me much hope. NBC, maybe you should just cancel this and save us all the time and heartache.
