Adrianne Palicki’s ‘Wonder Woman’ Costume Revealed

Published 3 years ago by , Updated February 15th, 2014 at 5:03 pm,

Ever since NBC’s Wonder Woman series was announced, fans of the DC Comics legend have been debating what David E. Kelley’s interpretation of Diana Prince’s famed superhero costume would look like.

With Entertainment Weekly’s release of the first official photo from the pilot, we see exactly what Adrianne Palicki will look like when she takes to the streets to fight crime.

Inspired by elements from both the classic and re-envisioned look of Wonder Woman, Kelley may have made his first big mistake when it comes to bringing this famed character to the small screen.

By simply mimicking the look of the comics, instead of delivering his own vision of the character, Kelley has come across one of the least acknowledged traits of superhero costumes – most direct interpretations of superhero costumes look terrible when they’re taken outside the medium of comics or animation.

While the colorful, and fantastical, wardrobes of iconic comic book characters look wonderful on the page or in animated features, these same eye-popping colors and cleverly designed outfits simply cannot exist in a three-dimensional world.

Without someone taking the time to decide the best way to interpret these characters and their outfits for other mediums, you will always end up with embarrassingly uninspired costumes – the same as the one pictured above.

Not only does the costume look ridiculous, but it somehow manages to make the always beautiful Adrianne Palicki unattractive – to such an extent that many will have to look twice at the image to make sure it’s not the WWE’s Chyna dressing up for Halloween.

Since the start, Kelley’s resume, which is filled with television legal dramas, has brought doubts about his ability to fully realize a superhero television series. After the script for the pilot leaked out, those doubts grew exponentially. With the release of this terrible image, the naysayers appear to have won.

While filming of the Wonder Woman pilot is currently underway, and it’s possible (although, extremely unlikely) that the finished product could be amazing, I’d be lying if I said that I’d be surprised if this pilot ever sees the light of day, let alone picked up for a series.

The fate of Wonder Woman will be decided in May, at NBC’s upfront.

  1. wonder woman is a joke. always has been always will be. why not have a show that follows green arrow oh thats right cause it would suck. maybe jubilee should have her own show americans love to see fireworks. why can’t we just let bad characters evaporate. the runaways is canceled before it can get off the ground but someone got paid to design and create a new outfit for wonder woman. it’s just an awful waste of time. who was clamoring for this show to be made anyway, well im sure i will find out. tear me up weird wonder woman fans.

    • I wholeheartedly disagree with you about Wonder Woman AND Green Arrow (Jubilee was never an interesting character to me) and am not weird for finding a such characters fascinating and great symbols of hope. Calling others names for having a different opinion from you just makes you SEEM weird (or WORSE), yourself…I am not not perfect, by any stretch of the imagination (as others in several threads will gladly point out, I’m sure), but I, most of the time, TRY to back up my statements, especially when pressed.

      So, here I go, pressing YOU. Back up your rant. WHY do you think WW is a joke (and, apparently, GA)? Why are those who hope to see GOOD productions for these and other characters weird…at least, to you? Back it up, or shut it up (to use a variation on the old expression).

  2. GET RID OF THE PANTS. Is it really wrong to show more legs? WW has been an iconic figure for the past ….what 50 years? Did anybody say she looked slutty because she showed more legs? Why change the costume at all? What is the compelling need for the change? Changing just for the sake of change? Is covering her all up in blue latex something to do with political correctness??????
