Well what do you know … the Queen is dead!
We have reports from EW.com that NBC will not be picking up the pilot for the David E. Kelly produced Wonder Woman TV series that was supposed to premiere this fall. I hate to say it, but it comes as no surprise to anyone that has been paying attention.
The script received less than a warm reception from critics who managed to read it, as it focused on Diana Prince as CEO of a major company by day and a butt-kicking Amazon by night, complete with contemporary music and lots of “girl talk.” Suffice to say, comic fans were pissed. And then there was the costume.
When pictures showed star Adrianne Palicki in a rather poor rendition of the costume, the online community straight up heated it. They changed the costume because of it, but even that didn’t help save the doomed project, which is a pity.
The character of Wonder Woman is so iconic, that she deserves to be treated with respect and not campy. Who knows, this could lead to increased interest in a Wonder Woman movie …. but who knows?
We will have to wait and see, but I am personally glad that this version will not be coming to tv screens anytime soon. What about you?
