See the First Photos of Wonder Woman in Action (and With a New Costume!)

Anticipation for NBC's Wonder Woman re-imagining has been cautious. Some TV fans are eager to see one of the comic world's most famous heroines bash in the faces of bad guys. Others are put off by the modern-day spin that will cast Diana as a corporate exec who likes to sing Katy Perry songs in the car. And there's a fair share of people who are just morbidly curious to see how this whole things shakes out.

We still have a long time to wait until the actual show airs (if it gets picked up to series, we'd expect it this fall), but for now we have the next best thing: photos of the series in action from a filming session in Los Angeles.

One of the first things you'll notice, in addition to the ferocious look on Adrianne Palicki's face, is the minor adjustments made to the costume that set the internet on fire when the first photo of it was released. The blinding blue sheen of those shiny plastic pants has been swapped for something more matte, and the blue boots have been exchanged for red boots that better complement the outfit. I'm no fashion guru, but the getup she has on now is much easier on the eyes.

Do you think the new outfit is an improvement over the old one?

The WW outfit is one of the cheesiest things ever made, new or old. They should let it go and do full reimagining. I'd be too distracted to pay any attention to whether the show is any good or not. =/

Looks brand new but it's similar to the comics though I can't tell the difference.

I think the basics of the original costume from the Lynda Carter era are much better. The top in the new version is okay, but it should be a one piece suit or bustier with the blue bikini bottom and stars we are all used to. The boots look much better in red with the gold stripe down the front but they went from a sturdy medium-high heel to flat botomed with no heel to speak of, like a wrestler. Wonder Woman has always had heels. The Tiara just doesn't look right, it is too small and oddly shaped. A narrower version made from metal based on the Lynda Carter version would look better. It is supposed to be a metal boomerang, as well as the Tiara of an Amazon princess after all.



The wrist bands/bracers for deflecting bullets look much more in line with todays comics and much more like armor than an afterthought. And while they would look better in gold, both in the Lynda Carter costume and the comics, they are silver for some reason. As someone mentioned, the costume in the comics is reverting back to the swimsuit style. The cover shown in the June preview of Wonder Woman issue 612 on the dccomics.com website shows a perfect costume, in my opinion, based on the swimsuit style costume.



As for complaints that bikini bottoms would make her look too sexy, or high heels (not spiked, but medium-high) would make running difficult, or that the strapless halter would make her breasts fall out, come on people, Lynda Carter had no problems, yet her costume was based on the swimsuit/gymnastics style costume allowing freedom of movement, sensuality, and an array of weapons and defense. They call her Wonder Woman for a reason.



Don't damn a show based on a couple versions of a costume when you have never even seen an episode of the series. A Wonder Woman movie has been talked about since the 90's, and it obviously just isn't going to happen, so why give up on a TV show without even giving it a chance. It might surprise all the nay-sayers.

The only thing I can think of that is worse than this Wonder Woman is the casting of the new Arthur Movie. Radical idea? Think of something original and stop rehashing good old series and movies

While the back end of the cow gooing over the car probably belongs to a stunt double, as you point out, it does have the appearance of someone's grandmother wearing Depends! The original costume is still the best.

What an unattractive woman they picked to play the part! I looked at other pix,hoping it was just the face she was making,but she is homely.

What happened to her a** ? Maybe they should purchase a fake one to give her what she obviously lacks.

Oh yeah;the costume sucks big time.

Yuk-the original was MUCH better - costume, person in the costume and

really, how that person looked a hundred times better in that original costume.

This rehash doesn't have much of a chance if she plays the part...

I used to watch the old Wonder Woman and Linda Carter was hot. This new girl just doesn't cut the mustard. You need to find someone else to star as "Wonder Woman". Bringing back a classic is trickey if you want it to be popular. Let's try it again with a different girl.

This is a modern-day re-imagining. I think they should just forget about the costume altogether and just have her as a woman with powers. Maybe have her wear some small hint of the costume like an homage.

Looks just as bad as the other one, just less shiny. At least those pants look like they breath unlike the plastic one's from the original shot.

I don't think any costume would have been good enough for people. "Too much fabric, not enough sexy"; "too small top, not practical enough", "too shiny pants, WW is going to sweat in them", "too mate pants, looks old-fashioned" and so on...I seriously don't understand how people can hate it so much. It's like people hate it simply out of principle, just because it is different from the old one and therefore you're supposed to hate it. People think it's ridiculous, but still want to have back the old one which would mean WW jumping around in hot pants with stars on them. With the exception of the pants, the costume is pretty much the same. The old costume might have worked in the show in the 70's, but I'm pretty sure they are going for a more serious take on the story this time. It's like with Batman. The old TV show would never work today. They would have to do a dark, serious one like the new Batman trilogy by Nolan. I think this long pants version is a very good update while at the same time looking like the old one in many ways and having the old colour scheme. They could have done a very radical update which would have been hated by people too. I try to look at this realistically without condemning it flat out without seeing the show. It is hard to make a red-blue-gold superheroine suit without making it look like a costume. This is what you get, regardless if you you use leather, Lycra, PVC, or wool. You can't recreate the sleek look in the comics. What Adrianna looks like is what happens when you put on a costume in real life. I find the old suit good too, but this new one is equally fine, just different.

I HATE the pants!! We want the starry underpants back! Her head band isn't as thick and doesn't have the same effect. I don't mind the boots but the top isn't too great either. I am guessing this show will be a bit of a flop

Seriously, why not just borrow an American gladiators costume. The work was already done. The stunt double is obviously capable of wearing the comic book outfit of the Amazons, so why not. They can always airbrush the less flattering parts later. http://www.mannythemovieguy.com/images/american_gladiators_the_movie_find_its_writer.jpg

Oh come on, a modern day look? She's wearing PANTS! That *is* a modern look. Last time I saw Wonder Woman in a comic book was about 2 years ago, and she was still wearing starry underwear. Just saying. Just like with Superman, there's only so much you can do with Wonder Woman's outfit while still leaving the icon intact. Think back to Superman Returns; the primary colors remained, though in more toned down shades... still had the big S, the red shorts... seriously, if they dressed in her in all black or took away any part of her costume, people would be complaining that "omg they teh RUINED Wonder Woman! Teh show might as well be about some random woman with super powers lolz!" People are going to cry no matter what's done with the show. I'm just going to hope for the best. If it works, great. If it doesn't, then it won't be on for very long and people can forget it ever happened. And let's be fair... the original Linda Carter's costume in the original show looked pretty ridiculous, but it worked well enough for the show to last 3 seasons. Quit griping, people.

I guess this show will join the likes of the new Bionic Woman, The Cape and Flash Gordon. I do like the improved costume better but she still must be careful when jumping or we are going to end with an X rated Wonder Woman.

Obviously the t.v. people never ever read or even look at the comic. Dispite the current costume mess in the comic the classic costume is retuning. Maybe this can get cancelled in a couple of weeks since numb.b.c-tv. can't do a fantasy series that lasts more than the time it take to flip chanels. At least give her the jacket out of the current comic so they can pretend to pay attention.
