I’m in a good mood, so I’ll start with the positive. It was smart for Warner Bros. to get a full-body image of Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman out to the public before a blurry or even-less-flattering picture got leaked. Also smart was the corporate synergy used in releasing the picture through Entertainment Weekly.
Now the negative … the costume looks awful. It looks like a cheap costume like you might find at a bad costume store. And the photo itself looks like one of those photo manipulations people create to show what an actress would like like in a role.
I could go on and on about how terrible it is, but a picture being worth a thousand words and all, you can just see it below.
Aside from the costume itself, the picture confirms my fears that Palicki is the wrong choice for the role. Of the actresses who screen-tested or submitted screen tests, I think I may have backed Shannon Elizabeth. I hadn’t thought of her previously, but when I heard she had submitted a screen test for the role, I became intrigued with the idea. Palicki, though, just isn’t ringing the bell for me.
What do you think? Does this picture make you want to see the show more or less?
