David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman never made it to NBC, and it sure isn’t because of that awful costume—it’s because the television pilot sucks on ice.
Leaked footage of the never-to-be superhero show depicts an earnest Adrianne Palicki, as the eponymous lead, gracelessly leaping and bounding with the help of wires. I really like it when she stiffly runs toward criminals in perfect imitation of the T-1000, or when she she stiffly sashays off in defeat. (Also, speaking of stiff: Wonder Woman’s immutable hair.)
And why is Wonder Woman killing people? Comic book traditionalists need to know! It just doesn’t seem canonical.
Maybe they really should hand the directorial reins to Joss Whedon, because this clip has a serious Xena: Warrior Princess vibe. Am I right, or am I right:
P.S. Plenty more where that came from.
