NBC Changes WONDER WOMAN Costume After Fan Outcry

     March 30, 2011

When NBC released the first official image of Adrianne Palicki in costume for David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman, the response to the costume was scorn and derision.  But NBC was listening and the costume has been partially re-designed.  The top-half still looks plastic and shiny, but the pants have been changed to resemble actual pants and a nifty pattern of gold stars runs up the sides.  The color of the boots has also been changed from blue to the traditional red.

Hit the jump to check out the improved costume.  I still think the show will be a disaster, but that’s only because I think Kelley is absolutely the wrong person to be working on this show (or really any show).

Obviously the woman in the second image is Palicki’s stunt double.

The Wonder Woman pilot also stars Elizabeth Hurley and Cary Elwes.  The pilot was written by Kelley, who also serves as executive producer with Bill D’Elia (Boston Legal, The Practice, Harry’s Law). Jeffrey Reiner (The Event) is directing.  Keep in mind that this is only the pilot and NBC hasn’t decided whether or not to order it into a series.
