What happens whan an immovable lesbian object hits an unstoppable asexual force? As revealed by Entertainment Weekly today, they apparently have unconvincing heterosexual sky sex.
Okay so that Allie McAmazon version of Wonder Woman didn’t work out as a TV pilot. Despite being re-elevated to Trinity Status as one of DC’s big three, Wonder Woman is still languishing in the development purgatory that so many DC characters seem to swim around in. But how’s this for an electrifying concept for Diana: a film directed by DRIVE’s kinetic stylist Nicholas Winding Refn and starring-MMA fighter-turned-actor Gina Carrano.
Wow, now didn’t that make you jump up and shout “2012!” Refn’s movie was a great character piece, a twisted noir view of LA, a hipster retro fest, AND an edge of your seat action film. All traits that could make an amazing comic book adaptation.
Waste not, want not: although the Wonder Woman costume designed for Adrienne Palicki didn’t help the show fly as a pilot, producer David Kelley must have realized that a newly designed Wonder Woman costume is the kind of thing you keep in the closet for a rainy day. on Harry’s Law, another show he produces, Erica Durance showed up wearing the costume — playing a woman who THINKS she’s Wonder Woman. So it’s both Kelley making an in-joke…and being thrifty and green by recycling! Well played.
The rejected Wonder Woman pilot, starring Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman, is making the rounds on the mysterious black market of such things in Hollywood. But until the omerta it is being supplied with is lifted, we’ll have to do with these dribs and drabs.
Thoughts: Palicki loooks fine. The costume looks okay. Maybe this could have worked?
iFanboy’s Conor Kilpatrick has seen the fabled Wonder Woman Pilot and….
There wasn’t a whole lot about the pilot that I didn’t like.
Since the announcement that Wonder Woman pilot had not made NBC’s schedule, there has been no dearth of analysis about what it says about Wonder Woman, about us, about women, about…EVERYTHING, dammit. The Wonder Woman pilot getting dropped may just be the most significant event of our time!
First off, a picture of the variant “shorts” costume has been making the rounds. Would showing a bit more thigh have tipped the balance for the show? Probably not. With Wonder Woman nothing can ever, ever be simple.
Tweet The pilot for the Wonder Woman revamp just started shooting, and EW has revealed the first still of star Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night LIghts) in the new Wonder Woman costume. The new look seems to be modeled in equal parts on Jim Lee’s revamped design and MAC’s recent Wonder Woman make-up line packaging. Critics […]
We’re sure you’ve all heard by now, Friday Night Lights’ Adrianne Palicki has been cast as Wonder Woman in the pilot being made for NBC. Palicki is 5’11″ and her performance as the town vixen on the football drama won her a lot of attention. But does she have what it takes to play a vigilante who is also a successful high-powered executive who enjoys ice cream sleepovers?
TweetDespite the embarrassing cinema outings for female superheaters such as Catwoman, Elektra and Aeon Flux, hope springs eternal that someone someday will make a movie about a heroic female that isn’t utterly cringeworthy. Of course, TV is a lot more heroic woman friendly, so it’s there that we find Wonder Woman — whose movie version […]
Whaddaya know, Wonder Woman is back she she’s getting her own David E. Kelley-produced TV show.

Tweet § Why is this totally AWESOME quote by Dan DiDio not getting the attention it deserves??? The pants are really intentional for the actual story itself, again § JMS notes an odd dichotomy: It’s not a case of either/or. What I found fascinating recently was a Wonder Woman reader, a woman, who pointed out […]
