Are you a wonder, Wonder Woman?
David E. Kelly’s version of WONDER WOMAN is set to debut later this year, but the new costume that series star Adrianne Palicki will be wearing has already been revealed. The new costume is along the lines of the current comic-book version of the outfit, with long pants replacing the classic swim-suit.
Like the rebooted comic, the TV series departs from the classic origin of the character, with this version of Princess Diana not only being the super hero familiar to countless gay boys everywhere, but also the head of a multi-billion dollar company, Themyscira Industries AND secretly Diana Prince. It’s going to be interesting to see how all of that works out.
What are your thoughts on the costume? Between the original, the rebooted comic version and this one, I’d have to say that the new comics version looks a bit cooler. There’s something about the blue pants that don’t look as good as the revamped black ones.
In another of the endless ways I’m queer for a queer, I don’t particularly identify with Wonder Woman. I’m not all that bothered by either version of the costume. Doorq that I am, I’m excited to see the new TV series, though. David Kelly has pulled off some great writing over the years. Wonder Woman is an awesome character — especially when she’s flying on her own power and trading blows (and kisses) with Superman — so if the series does a great job with writing and production values (and doesn’t pull a SMALLVILLE), it’ll find a spot in my weekly Tivo to-do list.
Update: Tumbling Through Life Updated the color a bit on her costume. Much better.
