Seriously NBC? This is what you come up with when redesigning the Wonder Woman outfit? It looks like the awful wrist cuffs, gold lasso and knee-high boots will all remain, even as the series attempts to reinvent itself for television.
The photo above, a first look at show star Adrianne Palicki in her new outfit for David E. Kelley’s retelling of Wonder Woman is quite awful for a 21st century show, however it does keep with the original design which should please comic book fans, while giving her a tighter pair of pants which should please male comic book fans.
The show remake takes place in Los Angeles where Palicki takes on the roles of Wonder Woman, billionaire business woman Diana Themyscira and her assitant Diana Prince.
The outfit is definitely more sleek than the original, but NBC was hoping for sexy and we just don’t see it.
You can catch the show starting this Fall, in the meantime drop us a line and let us know what you think about the outfit.

While I’m not a fan of recycling sub-par television for the purpose of creating a new series, I’m actually excited to learn that David E. Kelley’s reboot of the Wonder Woman franchise on NBC will feature Elizabeth Hurley as the villain to Adrianne Palick’s Wonder Woman.
While exact details have not been revealed, PopCrunch says she has been cast as a “tough-talkin’ villain.
Hurley announced via Twitter on Thursday morning:

Wonder Woman and her invisible plane could soon be revisiting our TV screens, although we highly doubt the invisible plane will actually make it back to the show, it was just plain stupid.
Deadline.com announced on Saturday that the DC Comics character could make a return with David E Kelley, creator of Ally McBeal and Boston Legal tapped to produce the action series.

Lynda Carter, the woman responsible for holding the reigns of Wonder Woman in the 70′s TV series has voiced her approval for the new, “sexier” Wonder Woman outfit.
The new outfit which now features a denim jacket and leggings is the first remake of the character in 69 years. The costume is also a far cry from the spandex and halter top Carter had to squeeze into.
Carter told ABC News:
“I think it will take time for people to get over not seeing a lot of leg,” adding. “I think it’s going to be very sexy and it’s new and I love the little cap sleeve. You know, she’s a hip girl.”
