Too bad the actual show looks like it's gonna be terrible. Hope there's at least one decent strength scene before it's cancelled...

I can't say I've seen much of her acting, other than her appearence on Smallville. On the plus side she has the height, and she isn't a skinny size zero, although personally I would have liked Bridget Regan, on looks alone they could of done worse (although I do think Adrianna looks better as a blonde)

I wonder what her powers will be?

Probably no flying and only above average strength.

Copying this and 'merging this into one thread' (cannot wait till the new forums come online)....

And here's your new Wonder Woman:

insidetv.ew.com/2011/02/16/wonder-woman-revealed/


Interesting choice....not classically beautiful as WW should be but she is physically impressive. Interestingly, she was the first 'Supergirl' on Smallville in season 3. If memory serves, I think she said her dream job was to play Kara in a series or Supergirl remake as she loved the character as was quite familiar with her. She was a big comic fan girl and I think her brother is/was a comic book artist.

Anyways, will be interesting to see how she is received. Rarely is the general public happy with any casting selection of this magnitude so it'll be 90% skeptical im sure

UPDATE: Found this quote from her: "I would love to do Broadway, I don’t think there’s anything more amazing than theatre. Okay, Supergirl is number one. Maybe I could be Supergirl on Broadway! That would be perfect." Looks like she at least has a passion for superheroines!!

Even though I have about 0 interest in this project, I agree.

I dunno, guys....Tanit certainly looked the part but her audition was terrible I thought! The dialog didn't help her cause but she was pretty bad, I thought.

Didn't the report say that palicki was the only the actress WB actually had read for the part? She is a pretty good actress, from what i've seen from her role on Friday Nigth Lights .

Maybe I was bit harsh, saying I had "zero" interest in it. More like 0.1% :P No seriously, I wish her, and the show luck, if only because if it succeeds, it might lead to something bigger and better -- like a feature film. I want Wonder Woman to get the epic treatment she deserves, the way Superman did in 1978 (though I would still prefer a new Supergirl movie). And while Miss Palicki is probably just fine for Kelley's "hipster" take on the character, I think Bridget Regan would be the perfect choice for WW in a big-budget movie. She seems to have a regal quality about her, one befitting an Amazonian Princess.

Bridget Regan will probably be a great choice for a more classic style WW, althought something doesn't fit quite right with her look, but I can't point my finger on what.

Adrianne Palicki returned for a few episodes in season 5 of Friday Night Lights, which is also the shows final season. Season five aired already on DirectTv's channel one in the fall. NBC airs FNL's last season in late spring or early summer. Worth checking out. Good show, with or without Ms. Palicki.

From Elizabeth Hurley's Twitter account:

"Thrilled to be doing the NBC pilot Wonder Woman. I'll be playing the evil villain. Can't wait."

While I do think Liz Hurley is gorgeous (for an older woman) I can't say i'm that thrilled with her acting talents, although I do think her best work is as a comic actress as in Austin Powers. Perhaps thats the direction of the show, full on camp!!

I bet she is going to be a villain like Veronica Cale because she lacks "evilness" to do Circe

Going ahead is the only one way to go to the future.

According to the script, she WILL be Veronica Cale, the head of a pharma company and Dianas nemesis.

I'm super excited about this. Maybe it's because I don't know Wonder Woman lore at all, so I can't feel like they're butchering anything I loved.

I don't know much about David Kelley's writing, but I read recently that two of his pilots were picked up and made into shows, so his track record is certainly good.

It would be amazing if she has super powers. I doubt it though:(

As far as the lesbian angle, I see that as a requirement today. After all, a pocket dimension full of women and no men would imply most if not all of them are lesbians. Either that, or they are sexless.

WW hasn't been portrayed as a lesbian in the comics given previous sensibilities on the subject and comics code, whatever, but its time to show her more realistically.

For the purpose of feeding male fantasies, I'm OK on them going with bi-sexual.

Yes, especially since she has been portrayed in the comics as being nearly as strong as Superman , with the ability to fly, too. I'm guessing in this version she'll be someone in peak physical condition, with superior fighting skills, and a lot of gadgets ... kind of like Batman. Ok, she may have some super-strength, but nothing fantastic.

Adrianne's new look...I guess this wil be her 'Diana color':

Not too bad, though the bangs are a little different (though they might go). Look at second pic, she is certainly statuesque if nothing else
