First, a mockup of the costume Adrianne Palicki will don for NBC’s Wonder Woman pilot was unveiled. There was significant outcry from WW's considerable fan base.
Then, a second seemingly revamped get-up was unveiled. Fans were happier.
So did producers listen? Not really. It turns out NBC didn’t change a thing. NBC president Robert Greenblatt says the particular outfit sported by the superheroine on the Hollywood Boulevard set last month (below) was always in Diana Prince’s closet:
The real news here? In addition to that and the “shiny” look unveiled in the original (and quite controversial) publicity still, there’s a third version that has yet to leak.
Greenblatt says fans of the original series will be pleased, too.
“There was an initial outcry about the long pants – you know, skintight pants as opposed to those little shorts [worn by Lynda Carter in the original],” he tells TV Line.
“But the shorts were always planned," the exec adds. "They are actually used in the final confrontation when she beats Veronica Cale (played by Elizabeth Hurley).”
“We haven’t made any changes. But it’s always good to hear the fans' feedback. I’d rather have people really passionately engaged, even if they hate something."
We'd say it's a safe bet he can expect this trend to continue. What do you think WW's third look will entail? And do you think Palicki can hold her own as the lead?
