Now we have new pics and video and this time Palicki’s not just standing there posing. 27-year-old Adrianne Palicki, who was chosen for the hotly contested role, was shown running down the street and climbing over cars in Los Angeles as she filmed an action sequence.
She is starring in an updated television series, playing the role made famous by Lynda Carter in the 1970s. Unlike the blue hot pants worn by Carter, she donned a less revealing outfit. Palicki’s costume had also undergone some changes since it was first unveiled earlier this month. Fans criticised the original leggings for being too bright and shiny.
They also were not happy with the introduction of blue boots. The new footage of Palicki in action shows that the traditional red Wonder Woman boot has been restored. “They’ve toned down the shiny, painted-on pants and got rid of the blue boots, making the costume a little less, um, stripper-esque,” say fans.
However, there is still no place for the US stars and stripes sported by Carter on her costume. The new show is expected to propel Palicki, who was relatively unknown when cast, to stardom. Others who had expressed an interest in the role included Mad Men star Christina Hendricks.
Palicki will play a contemporary version of Diana Prince, a Los Angeles crime fighter with a double life as a successful corporate executive. The 5ft 11 ins actress was born in Ohio and describes herself as a “huge comic book fan.” Her brother is a comic book artist and she has a tattoo of the character Supergirl.
