First Look: Adrianne Palicki as TV's New Wonder Woman

The Amazing Amazon has been grabbing headlines since the announcement that Warner Bros. Television commissioned David E. Kelley to pen the pilot script for a possible new Wonder Woman TV series. And now Entertainment Weekly has a first look at Friday Night Lights Star Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman. We aren't sure if we like this as much as the old Lynda Carter look.

The Amazing Amazon has been grabbing headlines since the announcement that Warner Bros. Television commissioned David E. Kelley to pen the pilot script for a possible new Wonder Woman TV series. And now Entertainment Weekly has a first look at Friday Night Lights Star Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman.

Excitement for the Wonder Woman reboot was high after the initial announcement and Wonder Woman began trending almost immediately on Yahoo. After several attempts to launch feature film adaptations of the Amazon Princess failed, including one by Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly creator Joss Whedon, fans rejoiced to hear that she could be making a triumphant return to television this fall on NBC.

But before we get a gander at the new get-up let's take a look at the iconic 70's-era Wonder Woman, embodied by Lynda Carter.

Now, here's a full-body shot of Adrianne sporting Wonder Woman's togs for the new show.

Wonder Woman's new costume is based on D.C. Comics co-publisher Jim Lee's design.

Here's what Lee had to say about the new look, although we at SheWired aren't sure how we feel about this iteration of the Amazonian Princess: 

Form follows function. She has to exist a great deal in an urban setting. So I wanted her to have an outfit that she can close up and pass more or less without notice, or open when she’s in a fight to reveal her full appearance. I wanted the outfit to express her own situation, in that she lives in two worlds, which is also in a way the trap in which she’s found herself.

I also wanted it functional. As so many female fans have said over the years, “How does she fight in that without all her parts popping out? Where does she keep stuff?” She can keep or shed the jacket, there are pockets, it’s tough and serious looking while still attractive. It’s a Wonder Woman designed for the 21st century. Not to get all “Project Runway” on this, but what woman wears the same outfit for 60 years without at least accessorizing?
