David E. Kelley’s
WONDER WOMAN Is Tall!!

I am – Hercules!!

Adrianne Palicki, all 5’11 of her, will play Diana Themyscira in the pilot for David E. Kelley’s contemporary NBC reboot of “Wonder Woman.”

If the rumors were true, Palicki was on the short list to play the same Amazon princess in George Miller’s aborted “Justice League” movie.

The actress is likely best known as the towering player-dater on another NBC series, “Friday Night Lights.”  She also starred on Fox's short lived "Lone Star" and in the upcoming big-screen remake of "Red Dawn."

The project is rare detour into the fantastic for Kelley, who earlier created "Ally McBeal," "The Practice," "Chicago Hope," "Picket Fences," "Boston Legal" and "Harry's Law."

    Ralph Garman reviews the script...

    by THE WALLACE

    I heard a script review today, and it could be wrong, but if not, awesome... - She runs through the streets to the tune of Beyonce's "Single Ladies". It's in the script. It's written in the script. - She flies her jet singing along to Green Day - Working out to Lady Ga Ga music -has a pajama party with one of her girlfriends and they eat bowls of ice cream cuz she's had a "3 scoop kinda day" - She ends the episode sobbing into her pillow because Steve Trevor got married. - She has a company where she markets Wonder Woman dolls, amongst other things, and complains because the size of the breasts on the dolls isn't big enough. a line from the script: "When I hear the comments 'I always thought they were bigger' - that can be hurtful" Ha ha... really? What the hell?

    Crazy notion, I know. An actor having to change hair color. I was pissed they didn't get an actor with green hair for the Joker, but that turned out okay. Look, if, and when, this show fails, it won't be the fault of the lead.

    Big of of FNL

    by Bass Ackwards

    And I had no idea she was 5'11", that show must have gone out of its way to hide her height (or there are just a lot of tall people in the cast). Oh, and not down with the casting, like the actress, but given what I've seen of her on FNL and that CBS con show (the name escapes me right now), she doesn't seem quite right. But then again, its a David Kelley show, so chances are I'm not ever going to tune in anyways, so maybe she's a good fit for whatever audience she appeals to.

  • True story.

    This pic doesn't do her justice at all

    by KrowNinja

    She'll be a fantastic Wonder Woman. First of all, her tits are a lot more impressive than they look in that picture. Secondly, she has tremendous screen charisma, and she can actually act. She did a great job on Friday Night Lights. She was honestly one of the most likable characters on the show. She has exactly the kind of big tall buxom presence that Wonder Woman needs to have, and she's the kind of actress that could carry a television show on her own. The show may end up sucking, but it won't be because they picked the wrong actress.

    "Spectacular Choice"

    by jedimast3r

    Did you even see Legion? <p>As some have posted, it doesn't matter who you pick for this project. In my opinion, if this show isn't reverential to the source and not at least marginally faithful to the core character, it has no hope. <p>1970s The Incredible Hulk: stayed faithful to the Bruce/Hulk dynamic, though it strayed from the rest of the book drastically (as only can be expected given the time period). Bixby was great but so was the treatment of the character. <p>1970s WW mostly stayed true to the character until the later seasons. Campy, yes; horrible, maybe; nevertheless Diana was an Amazon, came from Themiscyra, and the pilot with the tournament for the Lasso of Truth and the Bracelets was at least semi-watchable, even back then. Enjoyed a mildly successful run and Carter was...amazing to look at. <p>1960s Batman was campy, yes; however, it was a comic book show through and through. Despite it's shortcomings the costumes and sets were top notch and in it's own way paid homage to Batman and his supporting cast of characters. It was Batman for its time and you can say that it stayed true to the spirit of Batman for that era. It also enjoyed a decent run. <p>The only show that defies the odds here is Smallville. What a cauldron of shit, a ball of chaos thrown up into the air by terrible, directionless producers. If you never watch Seasons 1-8 of Smallville, you can totally come into the 9th and 10th seasons having not missed anything at all. Seriously. It's that fucking bad, and I'm not kidding. <p>Yes, legions out there may disagree with me. (I don't like my Superman fucked with though. Fuck you Singer.) The fact of the matter is that you can enjoy the fruits of the new showrunners (who try, but not quite hard enough) without ever having laid eyes on an episode before Season 9. <p>That's the way this new Wonder Woman project is headed, it looks like. And it's a damn fucking shame, because Diana is a pretty fucking good character in the right delicate hands. She is an outsider like Superman; she struggles for identity because of her creation at her mother's hands; she constantly must temper her strength and will against man's societal judgment; she is liaison to a world hidden, with her sisters both envious and resentful that she maneuvered her way into the position. <p>At least, that's how I see WW. Throw in fucking Greek badasstic business like Hades, Zeus, Ares, and the like and you could have a fucking killer show. <p>Instead, they'll have a 3-scoop day?

  • Feb. 17, 2011, 12:48 a.m. CST

    And she wears that new SHITTY COSTUME too!

    by Starship Captain

    Everything I've read about this project sound HORRIBLE. The Daily Beast did a great article recently where they tore apart the Kelly script. The things they pointed out were truly laughable and showed just how much Kelly is only doing this for the paycheck. Worst of all, The DB article also indicated that they were tossing aside the classic costume to use the new comics outfit which is utter SHIT. In short: another EPIC FAIL for DC Comics and their media attempts. Next up: the ABOMINATION that will be the laughably bad Green Lantern movie!!!

    by yamayama

    Seriously after the excellent animated movie from WB why is this still being entertained? Wonder Woman is like a female equivalent of Captain America. But what Kelley is giving us is a 40 min advert for bloody sanitary towels and joan collins type acting out of Dynasty. This is going to be bad. This is going to be "Charmed" bad. Remember Charmed? The show about the witches. It stunk. But still managed to get many seasons. Thats the level of FAIL we are going to get here. Kelley is trying to take the dynamic of Whedon's writing of the Buffy characters and apply them to Wonder Woman. It. Wont. Work. And finally where is Monica Bellucci? Seriously, she was born to play the part. And we get some bloody skeletal underwear model!! FAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    by eveelcapitalist

    If Wonder Woman were a courtroom drama about a scrappy little feminist pushing left-wing causes, David E. Kelly could probably make it work. But it's not, so he won't.

    And I love the first pick. Yum. Is she the typical Diana? No, that was the last girlfriend I had before I met my wife. Black hair, blue eyes, and British to boot! Howdy do. But she'll be dyeing the hair and I assume thy know of colored contact lenses, so no problem there. She had a tan through most of FNL, so the skin can be darker. Oh, and she can ACT a bit. How nice. Someone suggested all the fitness models available, and there are many. And none (or damn few) of them actresses. I can only assume it helps when launching a new program when you don't have to teach your lead on the job. Give it a chance folks. Of course, if that script review isn't false, Lord help them.....

    by shutupfanboy

    Herc doesn't want to hear it, but you have to fill out the suit. That is why no one bought Routh as Superman, too much Clark Kent not enough Man of Steel in the upper body. Even with the breast issue aside, David E. Kelly makes for some cringe worthy TV. I love Picket Fences, but there were times, the writing fucked themselves by trying to make you think only to have your royally pissed off at the end. All his shows involving court cases went the total opposite of what would happen in real life with the decisions and done for shock value. I guarantee you, he will find some way to drag Diana into the court room every other episode for no reason. She could be the greatest actress in the world, but I have no faith in the premise, studio and the man in charge. I hope it never sees the light of day.

    My first choice for Wonder Woman

    by Robert Moore

    Adrianne Palicki was my first choice from the moment I first heard of the new show. She is gorgeous (much prettier than these photos), a very good actress, and the right height. She dates - or at least did date - Alan Tudyk and she was in an episode of Smallville. Should have won an Emmy for Friday Night Lights. She was my favorite character on that show.

  • Feb. 17, 2011, 7:42 a.m. CST

    Except

    by Robert Moore

    Except that Adrianne Palicki is better. When I first heard that they were going to do this show, I instantly thought of Adrianne Palicki. I do like Brigit Regan (note spelling of last name), but I would put her behind Palicki, who is both a better actress and physically more suited for the role. Palicki has recently changed her hair color to medium brown, which may be her natural color. In her return to Friday Night Lights she was no longer a blonde.

  • Feb. 17, 2011, 7:51 a.m. CST

    Adrianne is perfect...

    by brocknroll

    If you've seen FNL like I have, you would know that Adrianne is a great actress, plus she's hot and sexy, she can do it all. She has the full package. She maybe a blonde chick, but NBC will dye her hair to brunette and she'll look mighty fine in the Wonder Woman suit. Her face reminds me of a young Lynda Carter, that's probably why she got the job. This is actually a great choice, and I'm sure Adrianne can nail this role, perfectly.

    I know that any announcement results in nerd rage because the person doesn't have specific physical features in her current role. That said: she looks the part here: monstersandcritics.com/people/Adrianne-Palicki/pictures/PaleyFest-Fall2010-TV-Preview-Party:FOX-Arrivals-523939/3.html

    Bomb

    by Judge Briggs

    This show will ... BOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMB after the first 6 episodes. Diana is a corporate lawyer? For real? Everyone hates corporate lawyers...

  • Even though advance reviews of the pilot script say it's absolute shit, it doesn't matter because NBC will pick up the series no matter what. Every media source has been following this project, so the ratings for the first episode will be huge just for the curiosity factor. But unless they do some major retooling and drop the "You go, girl" SEX AND THE CITY bullshit, there's no way this series will last any longer than the BIONIC WOMAN remake did.

    by David Cloverfield

    We have a real walking, talking, ass kicking wonder woman and nobody's casting her. Sure she may not look convincing when she longingly stares out the window of the office set 80% of the show will take place, while some Warner owned song plays in the background but she looks hot and can deliver a convincing dropkick. There's serious money to be made off that woman.

    I'm unimpressed, but let's face it...

    by oisin5199

    Wonder Woman is the ultimate idealized woman - strong but feminine, a powerful goddess but compassionate. Most men would never be satisfied with any actual woman cast in this role. Except somehow, Linda Carter was lightning in a bottle. That Australian actress they cast in the George Miller movie was waaay closer than Palicki, looks wise. Die Palicki's hair, even curl it, she just doesn't have the right look (facially, not even counting the body). I agree that Kelley should have gone with She-Hulk - that way he could get the struggling female lawyer part in there. I'm skeptical, but I'm willing to give it a shot. But like others have said, I smell Bionic Woman here.

    by glodene

    David Kelly is up to his old tricks again, casting these stick thin bitches with the body of 13 year prepubescent boy...Hell, I remember how is people would manipulate the leading actresses of Ally McBeal to starve themselves to satisfy his PEDO fantasies. This skinny hoe is the total anti-thesis of what Wonder Woman is supposed to be. This bitch is nothing more than your typical Hollywood cliche: BLOND HAIR, BLUE EYED & 98LBS SOAKIN' WET!

This is a great casting call, which doesn't mean the show will be any good though. Oh noes, she's too skinny. Boo fucking hoo, you realize that actors gain and lose weight for roles, they can also put on muscle mass. Nothing says a female can not bulk up a bit to fit a role just like a male can.

    Coincidence ...

    by Number_Six

    ... I'm sure this is the girl who played Judy Robinson in the Lost in Space unaired pilot Merrick posted recently ... I tell you, never heard of her before and now she's popping up (and out) all over the place. I guess she's fairly hot, and reasonably tall (5' 11" is tall for a woman) ... but I wouldn't quite say she was Amazonian. It's a shame it all boils down to boobs, but WW's shape is important and this girl may be smokin' but in the wrong way unfortunately. Guess there's fuck all can be done about it so we'll just have to wait and see her suited up, I dare say she'll raise more than a smile regardless. As others have said, gut instinct is that this has Bionic Woman written all over it, it sounds shit before it even starts ... however there aren't enough TV shows with scantily clad hot chicks bouncing around fighting and throwing shapes, so this gets my vote regardless!

    by Himbo

    Razorback, I think we have written before and commiserated about Sarah Lancaster's staggering beauty. That said, she announced recently that she's engaged and expecting a baby... [One of mine. - nod to kids in the hall] But seriously, she is expecting, she can't do this role. Also, Palicki is tall and can fill out at the gym. She was good in a big part of Supernatural. She has a spectacular facial structure to play Diana. And what I've heard of the script gives me little hope. Still, I sat through the pilot of that turd 'Harry's Law' hoping it would be good. Haven't been back.

    by snappy

    Her looks don't say "Wonder Woman" to me. A few years ago, I'd have suggested Claudia Black - not tall but has the swagger to make up for it. Same thing with Sasha Alexander. Now for the proper suggestion: Caterina Murino. Don't care how tall she is, I just want to see her in the suit. She has the exotic looks and, despite being merely eye candy in Casino Royale, she's shown acting ability in Zen.

    "ME, SKEPTICAL," says Stupid Caveman Henry

    by Henry Fool

    There was a time when everyone agreed David E. Kelley was a genius and I appreciate his commitment to making shows that deal with sociological issues. If he pulls this off right, it could end up being the successor to shows like Buffy and Veronica Mars.<br /> <br /> But how likely is that? David E. Kelley hasn't been on his game, lately. Boston Legal was a pretty good show but it could get pretty annoying when it was attempting to be funny. I loved the animated Wonder Woman movie. It was deserving of its top spot on IGN's best animated video list, beating such great entries as "The Animatrix". But the description I've heard of the pilot just doesn't have the epic nature of the comic's mythology. The animated movie was both epic and funny. Many of princess' Diana's comments about the sexism in the modern age were really funny. It was very creative the way the writers turned her cultural background into an attitude that compels her to comment on contemporary sexism.<br /> <br /> If we must have a Wonder Woman series then the character has to be portrayed in the same mythic archetype as Veronica Mars, Buffy Summers and Kara Thrayce. Veronica Mars always had the limitations of a teenage girl as a roadblock. But there's nothing stopping Wonder Woman from taking on organized crime, oil tycoons, corrupt politicians and weapons manufacturers. I mean, she's fucking Wonder Woman, right? The world always loves to watch a hot chick pound vengeance into those deserving of bodily fluid spillage.<br /> <br /> We've never gotten a superhero series to fill the void, I loved season one of "Heroes" but it died when Brian Fuller left. just mediocre drivel like "The Cape" (which I despise at every level) and "No Ordinary Family".<br /> <br /> Why, oh why couldn't NBC have hired Brian Fuller to helm this show? I respect D.E.K. but I just don't think he has the chops to pull this kind of show off.

    The 'spoiled generation' strikes again!

    by TopHat

    Ahem, listen up mamma's boys: These 'women' are NOT 'hot'. They are too skinny and look like trannies. See, women are supposed to have something called "curves". These basically consist of very few straight lines. Showing cleavage is not "being curvy". Now, I know, you have all been raised under the DAYS OF THUNDER ministry of women. Where its expected of you to proclaim positivity the equvilant of speaking in tongues whenever the mere whisper of 'female' is breathed into the air. But, its actually okay to NOT be attracted to women thinner than sixty percent of American ten year-old boys, who need specially designed NASA created aerospace push-up bras to show the minimum amount of shadow to create the illusion when the sun is in its proper position that there is enough pressing of the skin to prevent a large beetle to crawl through, and have a fifty year old divorcee New Jersey tan. It is understandable to crave the feeling of soft curve to the feeling of bone. That seeing how a person's chest plates interlock does not make them look "amazing". That a woman should not have a lower body that closely resembles that of Bugs Bunny. That she should have calve muscles and also a buttock. That her hands should not look like what Arwen's must have in real life from LORD OF THE RINGS. It is perfectly acceptable to want women to look significantly different than RuPaul. Wonder Woman was such a woman. Now, along with most that is good, she and women in general are no more. We used to have honest -to-God cleavage that didn't need the aid of pads or push-ups, soft normal color skin that didn't feel like body lotion residue, hands that you could actually hold on too without needing to do forearm exercises, ladies shoewear that could be lifted without getting a hernia, being able to hug a woman without getting your eye poked out from revealed bone structures, and faces that were different from one another not replicated in a body shop. There is nothing left now but Linda Hamilton shoulders, chest plates, Bugs Bunny feet, George Hamilton tans, Arwen hands, and tranny faces. The children have taken over the asylum. Grown-ups, please stand up. (NOTE: this post is not meant to put down Adrianne Palicki, only the "men" who lazily worship her Hollywood kin.)

  • Skinny girls with zero curves resemble young boys which is pretty much as gay as it gets in terms of physical attractiveness. All you closet gay guys do is hope for a pretty face young guys physique and you're happy with women like this being your WONDER WOMAN. Real women have curves, thighs, ass, calves, a flipping booty for crissakes! This is a definition of a pretty stick, an Angelina Jolie or a Kiera Knightly. Hollywood can brainwash you guys to thinking that's what real women should look like but real women EAT! Wonder Woman should look like an olympian, a bloody heptathlete with all the lifetime of training, fighting and hunting she's done. She would not look like some skinny hollywood teen product or some anorexic supermodel aka living clothes hangers! Infact people like you wouldn't find her threatening considering your taste for the skinny, defensless, young boy type fe-male! @rttingle - Lake Bell would have been a billion times better than this beanpole!

    Why not? DC have said they're not going the Marvel route by linking all the cinematic properties coming up... so why not do it on TV? Couldn't see Tom Welling coming back as Superman, so maybe find someone different? One of the guys who Snyder dropped before going for Cavill? Green Lantern, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Flash... ALL OF THEM. Seriously, a TV show could explore all the origins of these guys, bring in second tier DC characters... it could be the TV show that "Heroes" was supposed to be. OK, it'd probably cost a pretty penny, but if they do 12 episode seasons rather than 20+, they could get more bang for thier buck. Can't believe DC ain't considering this...

Well, oddly enough when she lived here nobody even knew she existed. She kept her head down for the most part. Eric Kripke, the creator of Supernatural, is from here as well. His family runs a local scrap metal business. His production company and the scrap business even use the same logo. Hence, the "scrap metal" in-joke on the title cards on the end credits. I've provided you folks with more than you ever wanted to know about the city of Toledo. And with that I shall take my leave.

    I'll give it a shot because...it's Wonder Woman

    by thecheesegrommit

    But I (who rarely complains) believes this is a mis-cast. This actress maybe a great actress and she is certainly beautiful but it shows a lack of fundamental understanding of the character. Diana is amazonian and this actress is certainly tall but she looks like a californian babe not a Greek statuesque women. The Alex Ross painting at the bottom of the post is EXACTLY right. Too bad they didn't go that route. PS. Hair color has nothing to do with it. Thought I'd nip that in the bud. Greek looks Greek and she doesn't.

    You're right regarding that Boobs don't make WW, that's just the prepubescent TB's above. BUT she does not look as if she is from the Mediterranean region of the world. I am sure she is great in FNL but I am not sure of this choice. I will of course give her a shot to wow me.

  • Now I had one point thought Monica as the most beautiful woman in the world...not sure where I rank her now..but sure as hell damn high...I too kinda entertained the thought briefly of her as WW but that was a long time ago. I also don't know how she would handle action? Anyway who knows how long WW has been established as WW in this new show or if she has just became WW...dont get me wrong I love me some Monica and I know actors/actresses can play younger/older etc..but that might be pushing it.

    ...Its a sad time when the people of a society do not even have the conviction to question what is sold to them as 'beauty'. But, I guess these guys are right; only a man who is gay would be attracted to curvy women. And a man who is a virgin would not understand the appreciation of skinny rail females. Them gays also like vegetables and exercise. Oh, here's a ball ...perhaps you'd like to bounce it.

    Do you know there is a spanish city called Toledo? It's where your city name came from. The spanish city of toledo is beautiful. It was once Spain's capital, and thus, it has a magnificent castle and lots of great ancient edifices. If you ever decide to go visit europe and go to spain, you should visit Toledo. You would came from Toledo to Toledo. Check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Toledo_Skyline_Panorama,_Spain_-_Dec_2006.jpg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Toledo_Puerta_Bisagra_1.jpg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Toledo_Museo_Santa_Cruz_1.jpg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tagus-Toledo.JPG and read about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toledo,_Spain And thanks for the stories about Adrianne Palicki when she was still living in Toledo, Ohio. I read an interview with her in the british SF magazine SFX, it was during her time in Smallville, and she came across as a smart, funny, down to earth and humble person. She left me a very positive impression of her. This is why i'm not taking all too well the dissing she is getting in here by the geekoids. And the absurd notion that she is not a fetching good looking lady and as some shortcoming on her breasts size! Fuck's sakes!

  • The mediterranean people are far more mixed then you would believe. For example, me, i'm dark haitred and brown eyed but i'm pale skinned, i look more like a welsh, like Christian Bale or Catherine Zeta Jones type, then what you would think a mediterraneans would look like. The mediterranean and the iberic pensinsula has always been a corssroads of the world, and many people passed by here, and stayed here from al walks of the world and left progency. We are very very mix. You will find more mixed types in the mediterranean area then in the north of europe.

    SHE WAS IN THE UNAIRED PILOT FOR AQUAMAN

    by Meadowe

    It was a special feature on either Justice League Crisis on Two Earths or Under The Red Hood. As always, I tend to thinq that actors do the best with what they are given. Recently I saw her on Criminal Minds, although I only caught the last ten or so minutes. She (SPOILERS) played some chiq who manipulated her boyfriend and they killed some people and kidnapped a little girl or something like that. She got shot, and when the negotiators got her bf on the line they revealed to him she was conning him the whole time. They told him if he confronted her she would try to use her sexual wiles on him (despite being shot and dying) and when he did bring it up she, like the negotiator predicted, wanted to get amorous. They ended up getting shot up in a little suv or something. I wish I would have caught the beginning; it seemed like a good episode. Anyway, yeah admittedly Legion wasn't very good, I only liked Kevin Durand (he played Joshua on Dark Angel, Blob in Wolverine) and Paul Bettany and Lucas Black, and of course her because I liked Friday Night Lights. Hopefully this projeqt will be good but if not oh well.

    Your Portugese? The reason I ask is because my friends and I are tasked with writing a little story, one of the charaqters is Portugese. We heard Marcelo is a Portugese name, and I wanted to know if it is a popular name in Portugal. And I'm assuming it's pronounced Mar-chel-o?

    Yep, Toledo, Spain is our sister city. Our local cathedral is even an homage to architecture in the city in the 16th century. I had a chance to visit my junior year as part of a high school trip but lacked the funds. You'll probably find it funny that the local paper is known as The Blade. I'm perfectly fine with this casting choice. I just wish it weren't Kelley. It seems like he's going to really Kelley it up instead of letting the source material work for itself. From what I've heard it takes elements more well-known from other sources that he probably would've been better suited for, like Power Girl or She-Hulk. Most know so little about Wonder Woman outside of the Lynda Carter series that a lot of these changes will probably fly until the writing just become too unbearable to witness any further.

    I totally agree. I'm very familiar with that region of the world and didn't mean to make a blanket statement regarding a peoples appearance. I guess I'm just trying to present a "type". That said I guess the best way to describe what I'm looking for in a WW is the Alex Ross paintings or a Gabriel Reese type. Peace .

    Thank you! Can't believe it took that long for someone to point that out. Jesus shit, she was in that, she was on Smallville, she reads comics and her brother is a comicbook artist. She is a comic geek. And she was great on FNL. What the fuck does it take to make you nerds happy? I don't have a lot of faith in David Kelley but damn at least Palicki will give a shit about the character, more so than most actresses would.

    Prediction

    by Dasinfogod

    Kelley will be off of this project before the first episode makes it to air, just as he was shown the door after his take on "Life on Mars" (for all the faults of that series, it was NOwhere near as poor as Kelley's pilot). Aside from "Lake Placid" (and maybe "Snoops" if you push it), what genre cred does he bring to Wonder Woman? Maybe he's script-doctored something behind the scenes that I don't know about, but a quick glance over his resume doesn't indicate any aptitude to funny-book adaptation. Heck, what's next? Michael Bay's "Room with a View"? Pedro Almodovar's "Expendables 2"? Terrence Malick's "Teletubbies"? Darren Aronofsky's "Wolverine"? Oh, uh... wait...

    I always wanted to see Indira Varma in the role

    by Pop_aristocrat

    ... after her turn as the lovely, tall, and kinda cut Niobe in Rome. Really, I don't get all the complaints about the girl's body-type. It really will come down to her ability to act and her countenance. I can't really speak for either, as I have no exposure to her. But saying she can't be wonder woman because her tits aren't big enough is goddamn ridiculous. ... that argument only works with Power Girl. But really, if we put a 'realistic' wonder woman in the role, people would complain too, a giant of a woman with rugged features defined musculature. Its a less commonly accepted beauty, that one.

    If those script reviews online are real

    by ChiTownsBest

    This show will be horrible. It sounds like Ally McBeal as Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is portrayed as a single corporate woman pining for her ex Steve Trevor. Really!? Com'on, I knew this sounded bad when I heard David E. Kelly's name attached. He's a good writer, but this is not his cup of tea. Who the hell wants to see Wonder Woman singing Single Ladies while driving to work. Why the fuck would she be driving to work anyway. She's fucking Wonder Woman! Here's hoping that the script is phony as the day is long. It's sounds so bad that it could be an SNL skit.

    ally mcbeal...

    by emeraldboy

    was just an excuse to make rhonda shepard a millionaire. no actually a multi millionaire. all of the songs in the show were featured in her albums which were released after each season. she has now disappeared without a trace after complaining that her record contract was a straightjacket. ally mcbeal was a fantasy show about a character who was a dreamer. the feminism was there front and center. how many female lawyers are there really in the real world in the us? ally mcbeal was fantastical, with its toilet based musical nos. the very idea of turning wonder woman into a corporate exec, might be laughable with so few female corporate lawyers. Kelley has done fantastical in the past. With ally mcbeal. it may or may not have been a smart choice. conservative talkbackers might hate change but the time was right long ago for an overhaul of wonder woman. that is why there was such a delay in bringing back wonder woman. here is another question, where is the kelsey grammar produced isis revamp.

    never had a bigger career. I know she was in lots of things. she still is beautiful, today. when you look back three actors defined superhero roles and made the roles definitive in ways, supergirl was awful but slater was perfect in the movie and I cant think of anyone else when I think of that movie. Bill bixby is david banner. and lou ferrigno is the hulk. both actors defined that role. Carter is wonder woman. and finally christopher reeve was superman. and defined that role and has continued to do so more than any other actor. that is why those roles all for of them have never really been recast.

    Her casting is not the problem..

    by KingKrikkit

    ...Its the story. It is a slap in the face of the source material. For all the "updating" they are doing nothing of what Wonder Woman is is present here. It seems to be that instead of an Amazonian, daughter-of-an-immortal, kick-ass testament to Womanhood they are making her a paltry female shadow of a cross between Batman and Ally McBeal. I'm already guessing her lasso and her bracelets will be based on some sort of technology instead of gifts from the Greek Gods.

    by wonderfan

    David E. Kelley and Warner Bros. has officially DESTROYED Wonder Woman. Adrianne is not the right choice and that costume is hideous. Tweaked or not it sucks. Bring back the original costume that shows the american flag. Darn you can't even be proud of the country anymore. You all in Hollywood who did this can burn in hell for it. Lynda Carter was perfection.
