Wonder Woman

by Brett White

Adrianne Palicki revealed to BANG Showbiz at the London premiere of "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" that one go as Wonder Woman just wasn't enough for her. The "Red Dawn" and "Friday Night Lights" actress played the iconic character in a high-profile pilot for NBC in 2011. Despite the pilot's failure to go to series, Palicki revealed that she's always up for more.

"If they wanted me, I would absolutely do it in a heartbeat... I was devastated [when the series wasn't picked up]. We shot it and it was amazing. I got to wear the uniform, I got to wear the outfit, and it didn't go. I was completely devastated about it."

For many people, Lynda Carter is Wonder Woman. That's why people are interested to know what the star of the 1970s television series thinks about the new “Wonder Woman” series starring Adrianne Palicki.

In an interview on a recent episode of “The Talk,” Carter was asked what she thought of the new costume and whether she'll make a cameo in the new series.

“You really want to know?” Carter said. “I like my costume the best. They were trying to update with the way we’re all doing leggings now and skinny jeans. I think it’s kind of trying to do that.” Read More...

Wonder WomanCelebrities are always scrutinized for what they wear, and it seems that it’s even worse if you’re Wonder Woman. We’ve seen Adrianne-Palicki as Wonder-Woman in a shiny publicity shot and red-booted set photos, but there might be yet another outfit waiting to be unveiled.

According to TVLine, there’s a third outfit that has yet to be seen by the public and it should please fans.

“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],” said NBC president Robert Greenblatt. “But the shorts were always planned. They are actually used in the final confrontation when she beats Veronica Cale [played by Elizabeth Hurley].” Read More...

Wonder WomanIf fan reaction to seeing actress Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman for the first time was a bit mixed, you might say it was completely because of the hero’s revamped costume. After all, that’s all there was to judge.

Whether you think Diana’s new duds were off-color or just a little too PVC, filming on the David E. Kelly-drafted NBC pilot is still full-steam ahead. And as production goes, so do local spies. One Daily BLAM! reader caught a glimpse (along with some shots and video) of the new Wonder Woman and her revised costume in action.

On the Hollywood Boulevard set of the developing show we can see some definite edits made to the rehashed costume. Read More...

Wonder WomanDavid E. Kelley, the man behind the new “Wonder Woman” television series, has plenty to tell about getting involved with the project and how Adrianne Palicki was chosen for the lead role. For starters, he initially said "No" to the project.

In an interview with New York Magazine, Kelley discussed how he ended up changing his mind and taking on “Wonder Woman."

“When I started thinking about all the complications and potential layers to this superhero, I just got more and more intrigued,” Kelly said. “It was also something I was a little bit afraid of. That’s good, too. Any writer should get out of his or her comfort zone, and this was way outside of mine.” Read More...
