Take a Peek at New TV Wonder Woman's Boobalicious Duds

image

Wonder Woman is returning to television in a shiny new spandex costume.

The new Wonder Woman television show coming to NBC first sounded somewhat serious, and was later revealed as anything but. Described as a "slightly goofy comedy-drama ... packed with Girl Power pop-songs," our first look at Adrianne Palicki in her Wonder Woman costume seems to echo the lighthearted tone.

Palicki's costume is similar to the way Wonder Woman looks in comic books, but she wears bright, solid blue pants and blue boots with gold trim. Instead of the sometimes-used golden "W"s adorning Wonder Woman's chest, the television show's costume designers went with a golden bird. Palicki also has a golden lasso on her hip (which is looking pretty weak), a golden headband, and silver wristbands for deflecting bullets.

It's tough to judge whether it works or not because the only available shot of Palicki isn't in context of the show. The costume doesn't look like it'd be very effective in a fight against thugs wielding spiked bats though. Then again, it's a pretty traditional Wonder Woman look and she's done just fine for herself over the 7 decades since she first appeared in the 1940s. I definitely don't think you can give a yay or a nay to a television show by a single costume shot, so we should probably wait until the pilot is released to make a decision.

I didn't notice the costume at first....I was too...distracted.

Man! Ain't it gonna be fun watching DC fans foaming in their mouths! :D

That costume is so tacky. You don't wear boot spandex. Also looks way to shiny.

Oh wow, it actually made me laugh and cringe at the same time. What the fuck is wrong with this show? Add it to the pile of reasons the show is going to be an absolute trainwreck.

Still, stonking great tits at least, despite being obviously deceptive...

I've seen cosplays of Wonder Woman better than this, you know somebody hasn't done their job when I can say that.

This looks like something they sell at Spencers....

Having finally managed to force myself to look away from certain areas I couldn't help but feel the full blue spandex trousers don't really work, at least in my opinion. Admittedly I dunno what would be a good alternative, but even still, it just doesn't seem to work.

Well it's definitely boobalicious.

No leotard, no interest. She looks more like a dominatrix cosplaying as Wonder Woman.

!

She was in Supernatural (albeit briefly).

Now I'm a little bit interested, though not much. It is still only Wonder Woman.

Boobies :3

I know nothing about Wonder Woman (and most super heroes in general) so I can't go all fanboy-ragey and pick out the flaws in her costume and the undermining of the SERIOUSNESS of the series... I'm too busy checking out the gorgeous babe they found to play her!! :D

I know right, I thought for a moment the picture was the picture of a halloween costume. Though I have to be honest, I never expected the costume to look very good. It was either going to be very revealing or just look really bad.

"Fanboy squeeeeeeeeeeeee"

Apparently the red and blue didn't shout AMERICA! loud enough, they had to add the eagle to make sure you get it.

As an outsider looking in, America is so hilariously nationalistic. I mean yeah you've got your obvious state sponsored brainwashing with the pledge and all but damn, even your comic characters can't escape.

Anyway, I'll watch the first episodes for s&g's but I'm not exactly expecting The Dark Knight here.

Edited in a followup post, ie the eagle is part of the original costume.

I'm sorry, the way the article was worded made it seem like the eagle was a recent addition rather than one from a choice of options, one of which was the eagle. I apologise for the strong inference of irrational national pride and substitute it for a weak one. Tone down my first sentence to;

Of the options available, they had to choose the eagle that has obvious links to American nationalism.

As for the look of the character, according to the (good?) women of whatever the hell that board was (females on female game characters?) sexy isn't bad my (good?) man.

How often do you notice if a bloke in a game or TV programme is handsome? I'm betting not often, unless it's on your mind for whatever reason (I am assuming you're a hetero male btw). Would it not be likely the assumption that the same could be said of hetero female gamers on female characters is true? (assuming there is slightly more to the character than pure sex appeal of course)

It turns out that we geeky men get more fucked off about needlessly sexy female characters, out of a sense of attempted manipulation, than most geeky women do.

My guess is that they realised at a meeting that the show was shit and just thought "Fuck it, get some tits in there and it'll be fine".

To be honest, it's just as awful as the traditional one. which is pretty damned bad.

blue boots just look weird to me, if they were red it would work better

Those pants look more like a cast.

Really? Who was she?

(That show is far better then this one will be.)

She was Sam's girlfriend Jessica.

I love Supernatural. Probably my favorite show on TV right now.

Bwahahahahahha!
This is going to be so hillariously bad. There is no way I'm not going to watch it.

meh, we will just throw up the giant NC fan rating and move on, after all, we are pretty used to DC characters getting fucked over and over in books, a television show would be nothing new.

Pants?! I am disappoint.

You do know that Wonder Woman got her start during World War II, right?

Also, Batman is an American creation as well. Just sayin'

Now I don't know that much about Wonder Woman, but she's best known by the general public as a type of female role model. She was regarded as a Feminist icon during the 60's and 70's, demonstrating that women could be just as capable as men (or super-powered men, as the case may be).

Somehow I don't think the producers were thinking "female role model" when they designed this particular costume. I understand Wonder Woman is known also for her beauty, but it seems like this is just blatant male fan-service with the over-accentuated boobage factor.

Looks like something that came right from a fetish website. Then again, this is Wonder Woman we're talking about

It looks better than I thought it would but it's way too shiny, almost everything Ive heard about the plot makes me think he's just shoe horning Wonder Woman into the the same Ally Macbeal
style formula that wore out it's welcome years ago.

Can she even breath in that thing?

Looks great to me. Go girl power!

Wonder Woman is all about female power, and nothing is more powerful than a good neck line. ^^

Also, anyone know who's writing/directing this show?

She's going to fall out of that top if she starts fighting... though I bet most of you wouldn't consider that a bad thing. It looks cool, but it's way too impractical.

I remember reading that in Raimi's Spider-Man, Parker's costume was supposed to be crap. Eventually, he snags a store-bought costume and uses it because it's superior.

Maybe their prototype was so bad they ducked out to Spencer's.

I suggest you look into the guy who created Wonder Woman in the first place. Who lived with his wife and her lesbian lover. And was not at all into sapphic bondage at all.

Not at all.

YAY WONDER WOMAN

*flails*

she looks awesome :D

The suit looks really plasticy. I don't know, something about using comics' best known female hero in a "goofy comedy" seems kind of wrong. As if they thought that she couldn't carry a serious story or something. But, maybe I'm assuming too much.

My only experience with Wonder Woman comes from the excellent DCAU Justice League, and she was pretty badass in that. She could definitely hold her own show.

Wow, it looks like they spent literally tens of dollars on that costume. Between the crappy script and this, I'm trying to decide whether this show is the result of someone losing a bet or an elaborate build up for an April Fool.

Blue spandex tights isn't working. Too much blue in the costume. Granted, if they went with her wearing a bathing suit, that might be a little odd, although I think I'd like it better (no, not because she's showing more skin). Poor Wonder Woman simply can't find a good niche it seems like. I'm curious to see how this show does. Maybe if they changed the colors of her boots back to red the tights might work. I just can't get past all the blue...

Kind of interesting, I've actually been seeing Wonder Woman for the past three or four weeks around university. Well, sort of, it was a girl who was running against me and some others for election to our student union leadership (she didn't get the position. Neither did I.), and her gimmick was to dress as Wonder Woman and say she'd be the 'superhero' who would improve the union for everyone. I was actually surprised on the results night, it was probably the first time I'd seen her when she wasn't wearing a Wonder Woman costume...

Anyway, just wanted to mention that. As for this, looks kinda sexy from the picture, so I'll probably watch the pilot (either online or if it comes to UK shores) for that alone. As for the quality of the show itself, well, we'll just have to wait and see if it's any good, right?
