When it comes to Wonder Woman, the headlines suggest that we only seem to care about three things: what she’s wearing, what her latest TV attempt is wearing, and who she is banging. Basically, it’s all about her pants.
“I’m sorry I’m late with my book”, Jimmy Palmiotti said rather humbly, opening a “spotlight” panel on March 31st 2013 at WonderCon, and asked the audience if he ought to put on some “background music”. Amanda Conner, his co-spotlighter, and Palmiotti explained, tongue in cheek, that if the panel appeared “random”, months of deep thought […]
Speaking of Wonder Woman, in more pocryphal [sic] news, DC has announced Announcing YOUNG ROMANCE: A NEW 52 VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIAL for this February featuring 64-pages of Wonder Woman, Superman, Batgirl, Catwoman, Batwoman, Aquaman, Mera, Apollo, Midnighter, and Dick Grayson hitting OK Cupid, sexting and doing the walk of shame. Contributors include Andy Diggle, Ann […]
There’s a new socialite on the scene, and she’s penning Diana Prince’s Diary. Between whirlwind social events and world saving, it’s all a girl can do. Post-heroics drinks started out v. well. Etta met me at posh bar with proper wine list and everything. We were half way through first bottle when Bruce Wayne turned […]
Something which totally skipped me at NYCC, presumably due to being a thousand miles away from it, was the reveal of some Cliff Chiang’s concept art goodness for New God Orion. Unveiled at the “DC: From Concept to Page” panel. Orion’s appearance in Wonder Woman #12, completely unexpected by everybody, was perhaps one of the […]
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.
