Wonder Woman Returns to a TV Near You
You may or may not have heard about the upcoming Wonder Woman TV show. It was in production hell for a while, but it’s finally getting a pilot. Adrianne Palicki will be taking on the role of Wonder Woman, aka Diana Prince, and Justin Bruening will be playing her love interest, Steve Trevor.
This show will not be connected to the earlier series, which spanned three seasons ending with Diana moving to Los Angeles. Lynda Carter, star of the previous show, was asked to appear in the pilot, but could not due to scheduling issues. However she remains optimistic about possibly making a cameo in a future episode. It would have been great to have Carter in the pilot, but don’t get too upset as Elizabeth Hurley and Cary Elwes will be there to distract you, both of which will be guest starring.
The plot of the show is something of a mystery, but since Steve Trevor, army vet, is in it, I’d assume it’s still going to have some connection with the military. I did hear a rumour that it would be set in L.A. and Wonder Woman would be a corporate executive by day and crime fighter by night. I doubt the rumour’s true, but you really never know. Despite the criticism they’ve already received for the new costume, I actually think they could make this show work if they play their cards right. This could put Wonder Woman up there with movie stars like Batman and Superman.
