Wonder Woman TV Logo Revealed!

http://www.bleedingcool.com/wp-content/uploads//2011/03/wwlogoweb-570x200.jpg

This is the working logo for the new Wonder Woman television series from NBC, their filming the pilot in L.A. right now. Let’s take a look. They kinda hide the “WW” in the bird logo, that’s not bad. There is just red in blue in the name, where’s the white? I’m not really feeling the stars in the “O’s.”

What the hell font is that they are using and why make the name wavy? The font looks like some limp seventies throwback. I have always seen Wonder Woman as strong, that wavy look doesn’t project strength. The bird doesn’t look majestic enough to me, there should be a sense of royalty coming from it.

The “W” isn’t capitalised, which makes me think someone feels Wonder Woman isn’t “wonderful” enough for that tiny shard of grammatical respect. You would think that if Wonder Woman is the head of an enormous company, that she would want that company logo to scream strength, power, respect.

This logo doesn’t project any of those things. What’s your take on this logo? Am I full of it or maybe my male perspective is tainting my view? Time to speak out in the comments section below ladies!

The Wonder Woman television series from David E. Kelley that almost didn’t happen is bumping along and here’s who’s playing along. Elizabeth Hurley would will be playing villianess, Veronica Cale., Tracie Thoms as Etta Candy are in there some where and Pedro Pascal as a friendly police officer., Cary Elwes, star of The Princess Bride and Saw will be playing the CEO of Themyscria Industries.  Oh man, this is a lot of casting for characters I’ve never even heard of. All of whom will be joining Adrianne Palicki, our new Diana of Themyscria.

Logo and casting aside. What I’m even more afraid of? That this Wonder Woman running a company in man’s world, trying to find herself, moping over a lost love bullshit will be terrible and everyone will love it. Then we’ll have this new versions of the Amazon princess and no one will remember what a rad, ass-kicking lady she is.

And the big (maybe semi-big) names keep rolling in. The Wonder Woman television series from David E. Kelley that almost didn’t happen is rushing along pre-production. Just last week we learned Elizabeth Hurley would be playing villianess, Veronica Cale. Two more roles were cast as well, Tracie Thoms as Etta Candy and Pedro Pascal as a friendly police officer. Now we’ve got even more casting news, Cary Elwes, star of The Princess Bride and Saw will be playing the CEO of Themyscria Industries.  Oh man, this is a lot of casting for characters I’ve never even heard of. All of whom will be joining Adrianne Palicki, our new Diana of Themyscria. Recently Palicki was seen sporting her new, darker do she’ll be donning to play the princess. The bangs are of some concern. How can we see a tiara under all that hair (pictured above)?

The more I learn the more I’m worried about this series. For years we bitched and moaned, “Why doesn’t Wonder Woman have a movie!?!, ” and I’m afraid we’re not going to like our answer. Kelley’s premise still reads like Wonder Woman meets Ally McBeal, yuck. And I fear this series will fail and all the big-shots in charge of these decisions will be like, “See, this is why Wonder Woman doesn’t have a movie and most of the time we ignore her existance all together, she doesn’t sell.” Which will be enrage me so much I’ll transform in to my Red Lantern alter ego and ravage all of Los Angeles.

But what I’m even more afraid of? That this Wonder Woman running a company in man’s world, trying to find herself, moping over a lost love bullshit will be terrible and everyone will love it. Then we’ll have this new versions of the Amazon princess and no one will remember what a rad, ass-kicking lady she is. Even worse, what if she doesn’t wear the star-spangled bathing suit!? This could be like Smallville all over again. ::shudders::

The last time I saw Elizabeth Hurley was in my dreams, when I was eating out her tar star. In the waking word, I don’t think Ive seen her since the devil/soul wish flick Bedazzled. She apparently took a sabbatical from acting.  Spending her time raising family and doing charity work (sappy).  However, the sexy Brit is putting her milf tits back in front of the camera. She’s making a comeback. She’s got a voice role in the animated film The Wild Bunch, and now says that she’ll be the ‘evil villain’ in the new Wonder Woman TV series.

The info comes via the actress Twitter account, where she said,

Thrilled to be doing the NBC pilot Wonder Woman. I’ll be playing the evil villain. Can’t wait.

EW adds that “the casting is pending a visa for the actress, that it is considered a guest-starring role, and that Veronica Cale “runs a pharmaceutical company that is making a drug that makes people stronger. She wants to build an army that will, among other devilish things, take down Wonder Woman, whom she’s fiercely jealous of.”

Ugh, that just sounds awful. I am not excited about this Wonder Woman show. I hate the WW character to begin with, and all this news about the show just makes me slam my head against the wall. Seriously, listen to this show outline:

The show is said to be a non-campy take on the character that presents the superhero character as “a vigilante crime fighter in LA but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.” Things sound a bit complicated as Wonder Woman will have two alter-egos: a mega-billionaire CEO named Diana Themyscira and Diana’s “plain Jane” assistant Diana Prince.

Blah, right? Sounds less like a super hero action show and more of a “girl in a city” with a  whole bunch of girl drama and shenanigans. Something the 35+ year old woman demographic would rub their tits to. Given it’s written by David E. Kelley (Alley McBeal) I think we know who he’s marketing this to. Certainly not us comic-book fans.

I’ll admit my penis is a bit interested in what Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights) is gonna look like all suited up in the Wonder Woman garb. I may potentially watch the show for the tits.

Diablo-2

As fans of the television show Buffy The Vampire Slayer know, in every television show, video game or movie, there must be a “big bad.” Some nemesis that is so powerful and so outweighs the characters, that you simply must watch/read/play to find out how good can triumph.

Frankly, and I’m sure I am not the only one, but good tends to win a hell of a lot more than evil.  And there is only one bad guy who is the biggest and the baddest.  He is the ruler of the underworld – Satan.

So, this top ten list will be devoted to depictions of Satan in movies, television shows, and video games. The beauty of these lists are that they are subjective. My #1 may not be yours, so feel free to chime in through the comments section below and let me know what your list would be.

Let’s start the countdown, shall we?
