Well whether you asked for it or not, there is a new Wonder Woman TV series in development over at NBC, and although it hasn’t officially been picked up yet, David E. Kelley (Boston Legal) is the man helping to put together the pilot. Adrianne Palicki will star alongside Elizabeth Hurley and Cary Elwes. In this new modernized version of the comic book, Wonder Woman actually has three identities, one of which is a superhero, one of which is the CEO for a company called Themyscira Industries, and the other is just “a real woman who yearns to live a normal life.”
Entertainment Weekly just released the first official photo of Adrianne Palicki in costume as the new Wonder Woman, and wow, it’s a real piece of work. I mean, I guess it’s cool that she looks like a cheap hooker and all, but it’s a little hard to believe that this will be the “serious, non-campy take” that NBC is promising. I’m not denying that Wonder Woman is a tough character to get right in a live action setting, but this is just horrendous. What do you think, is there still hope for a Wonder Woman TV show? Check out a much larger version of the photo after the jump.
