Wonder Woman Now More Wonder Woman-y

The new Wonder Woman TV show has begun shooting and the first pictures are out. The internet won! Outcries and Open Letters to David E . Kelley seem to have worked. Wonder Woman’s costume now looks like something she has a chance of fighting crime in!

It’s awesome that she now has pants that she can move in. The stars are a nice, patriotic touch. And, can we talk about the red boots? They make a world of difference.

To the commenters on my last post, I am in no way trying to doom the show with fangirl nitpicking. I just want it to be good, and the costume is a critical part of Wonder Woman. Part of me wonders if that first costume was never real, that NBC put it out as something for us all to be outraged about so when we saw the real thing we’d be relatively happy. If that’s the case, it totally worked. Adrianne Palicki really looks the part.
