If you haven’t heard by now, DC Entertainment is remaking Wonder Woman. It’s going to be a tv show. And no it won’t be kicking off with a full-blown movie like the male superheroes.
I’m not sure why Wonder Woman doesn’t get her own action flick, and I was all set to be disappointed by that until they released this photo of the “new” Wonder Woman.
Uh yeah. Let the bashing begin.
My movie disappointment has been trumped.
What. The. Heck. DC Entertainment and NBC.
Or whomever created this atrocity – you should be fired. This is NOT Wonder Woman. This looks like an anorexic in spandex with a boob job.
This is not about body-type bashing, but when I think “Super Heroine,” I’m thinking someone who looks strong, muscular – you know – someone who actually looks fit enough to rescue me from a burning building. I’m not sure the actress they picked has any biceps. Can we send her to the gym to bulk up a little or will that mess up the costume sizing?
I’m not picking on Adrianne Palicki for being who she is, but if I were trying to match up an actress to the comic book description of Wonder Woman, I’d be looking for someone who maybe works out or something. Someone with some muscle tone and a tan. Why? Because the original Wonder Woman was from the Amazon. I picture a tall, darker-skinned woman with an athletic look to her. Not an over-inflated body-builder, but something that says power, strength and um “Super Hero”. Give me a woman who looks like she ordered the steak for lunch, not a salad with dressing on the side. That photo looks like an ad for an adult halloween costume.
Contrast that with this image of a cartoon Wonder Woman…
See now that’s all “BA” as my daughter would say. I would not want to meet her in a dark alley with a bag of loot slung over my shoulder. Granted, her waist looks almost smaller than her wrist, but at least this version looks tough and ready to kick some serious butt. She’s got attitude and she knows how to use that Magic Lasso!
The new version looks like she’s gonna trip in her boots or maybe she’s standing that way because her spandex are just too tight. What do you think?
Do you like this new version of one of the most beloved female Heroines ever?
