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 are already calling it vinyl-y, Halloween costume-esque and garish — or as one of our correspondents joked “It’s amazingly similar to what they wear in fake superhero bondage porn videos.”
Our take? Sure it’s loud and blue and red. But YOU try dressing like a superhero. The addition of the black pants from the Lee redesign would have toned it down a bit but OYMIGOD! Look at those cool cyan boots!
On the plus side, Palicki certainly wears the costume well.
