EW.com put up the first look at Adrianne Palicki in costume as Wonder Woman, from the now-in-production David E. Kelley pilot. BLANDTASTIC! Fug. If the Aeon Flux movie taught us anything, it’s that putting more clothes on the live-action adaptation of your post-human heroine makes them endlessly more compelling.
I don’t like it. Palicki looks great, and the costume is surprisingly good from the waist up, but i’m just not digging the sky-blue leggings, and lack of iconic white stars. Seems nuetered, and actually succeeds in making the new, comic book geek feminist bloggers-placating costume DC intro’d last year look kind of awesome, in comparison. So much for eye candy salvaging the script.
Speaking of Flux, never knew about this longer version of the Peter Chung-directed Diet Pepsi commercial from the mid-90′s with Cindy Crawford and Malcolm McDowell as thinly-veiled versions of Aeon and Trevor Goodchild, but just stumbled across it on youtube. Ever so fucking dope!
