TV's New Wonder Woman Finally Cast...

It was a bit touch and go for a while as to whether Wonder Woman would return to our TV screens but luckily NBC jumped to the rescue and pulled it from the jaws of oblivion.

News this week hit the net that actress Adrianne Palicki has nabbed the lead role of Diana Prince the Los Angeles CEO/Superheroine vigilante and as she was the only actress to test for the role NBC obviously had her in mind in along.

I have to admit to not knowing any of Adrienne's previous work apart from Supernatural and the movie "Legion" (the one with Paul Bettany and the battling Angels etc) but she's well known for Friday Night Lights, voice acting on Titan Maximum and Robot Chicken and even the failed Aquaman pilot.

I can probably think of a number of other actresses that would better suit the role (visually at least) but either way Adrianne is our Wonder Woman, all we have to do now is wait for the costume... Will it be classic Lynda Carter style or the post issue #600 comic version with the street-look denim and leather!
