INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
When NBC unveiled the costume for David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman revival almost two weeks ago, it triggered a torrent of criticism, much of it centering on the, well, shininess of an outfit that some compared to a cheap Halloween costume (and worse).
Last night, however, the first photos of Wonder Woman star Adrianne Palicki emerged from the Los Angeles set of the pilot, revealing that someone at the network may have been listening to the cries of fans. Gone are the light-blue vinyl pants, replaced by a darker, softer fabric. The blue boots also been dropped in favor of the somewhat more traditional red ones, although with gold accents instead of white (the heels, too, have changed).
You can see more photos and a video from the Hollywood Boulevard shoot at The Daily Blam.
The NBC pilot is described as a reinvention of the DC Comics superheroine, who’s recast as Diana Themyscira, a successful corporate executive who fights crime as Wonder Woman while trying to balance the elements of her extraordinary life. In addition to Palicki, Wonder Woman also stars Elizabeth Hurley as Veronica Cale, Justin Breuning as Steve Trevor, Cary Elwes as Henry Detmer, Tracie Thoms as Etta Candy, and Pedro Pascal as Ed Indelicato.
