Adrianne Palicki Cast As Wonder Woman

By Wyatt Earp | February 19, 2011

Some of you guys mentioned this story this week, so here ya go.

This is actress Adrianne Palicki. She is obviously hot, and rather tall, so the casting decision isn’t a terrible one. The fact that there will be casting at all concerns me, though. I mean, it’s Wonder Woman – possibly the lamest superhero ever created.

I know we all expressed interest in seeing Christina Hendricks in the role, but will a Wonder Woman TV series garner ratings? I think not, no matter how hot Palicki is.

A new Wonder Woman has finally been cast for the remake of the classic ‘70s super hero TV series. The gorgeous Adrianne Palicki, who wowed viewers and Hollywood honchos alike during her brief turn on Fox’s cancelled “Lone Star,” will put on her bullet-proof bracelets to play the role made iconic by Lynda Carter.

Palicki was thought to be perfect for the role, and she was the only actress invited to do a screen test. Perhaps Palicki’s statuesque beauty had something to do with it—standing at 5’11”, she’s the ideal height to portray an Amazon crime-fighter.

She’s okay, but she’s no Lynda Carter! Just sayin’.

    Howdy Wyatt! Well I think Adrianne Palicki IS hot, although I’d like to see more meat on her but still and all, in the photo you linked to, she doesn’t appear to be particularly muscular.
    And, ya know, I’d expect Wonder Woman (who was the lamest superhero evah!) to at least be strong enough to beat me in arm wrestling!!

    Lamest? Really? She not only had bullet proof bracelets, but she also had a lairet that forced people to tell the truth, flew an invisible jet, and best of all didn’t go simpering in the corner waiting for some guy to bail her butt out of trouble. Her being a “lame superhero” showed girls that they don’t have to be the pathetic damsal in distress and wait on some guy. They have as much ability to kick butt as any guy and can do it in high heels.

    I’d like to see a guy kick butt while wearing heels.

    I’ll take the Amazon Princess over any Disney princess any day for my girls to watch even if I do cringe over the lack of clothes.

    Well I’m glad they didn’t pick Megan Fox, but good God, they had to pick a squinter?

    And where’s Lyle Waggoner?

    Real – She looks like a toothpick in that photo. A hot toothpick, but . . .

    Kim – I’ll take Storm or Emma Frost from the X-Men before WW, but I see your point.

    Mrs. Crankipants – He’s probably dead by now. And let’s be honest; a squinter is much better than a train wreck.

    Now I’m all depressed.
    I thought they were talking about a movie, not a TV show.
    Christina would have been perfect for that.

    And Wonder Woman was far from the lamest superhero.
    That’s .

    What was the point of Wonder Woman’s invisible jet? I mean, you could still see Wonder Woman floating there in the air, so it’s not like she was fooling anyone.

    The only “wagoner” they could find was Charlie Wooster.

    How dare you sir. How dare you. Wonder Woman is not the lamest super hero of all time. That would be Aquaman, followed closely by the Submariner. Then there is Jubilee from the X-Men. I admit, if I was going to make a super hero squad out of the lamest super heroes in comic book history, it would be hard not to include Wonder Woman. But again, never underestimate the suck factor of Aquaman.

    Lyle is still kicking at 75 by the way.

    NBC does not have a good track record of superhero type series lately. The Cape was awful and I’m pretty sure there were compromising photos of whoever gave that mess the green light. Bionic Woman sucked and was mercy killed by the writers strike. Heroes started off good but the writing got worse as the series went along.

    I think a big key to any super hero series, be it tv or a movie franchise is this: stop killing off the foes because every hero only has a few good ones. Send them to super villain jail.

    If they didn’t kill off the Green Goblin and Doc Ock in the Spiderman movies perhaps they would not have to do a reboot.

    And the lamest super hero hands down is Matter Eating Lad.

    Charlie wasn’t a “wagoner”, he was a cook that had mushroom for improvement.

    Wasn’t Wonder Woman from an lost Amazon womans tribe. This babe doesn’t look like an Amazon woman.

    Oh, Christina, I miss you already! Tie me up and make me tell the truth!!

    Veehsir – What, you don’t like him talkin’ to the fishes? And yeah, Christina would look great in the uniform.

    Booger – And, as we saw in Family Guy, when she uses the bathroom, everyone can see her.

    Proof – “Heeeeere, they come to snuff the Wooster!”

    Mr. M – Jubilee. Ugh, she’s horrible.

    Fenway – I know. Maybe we can recruit GroovyVic?

    Chris C – I loved Heroes . . . in the first season. After that? Not so much. And thank you for espousing my pet peeve. I hate when they kill off great villains. Goblin and Doc Ock the most glaring examples. Christopher Nolan does a good job in his Batman series. Scarecrow and Joker live to fight another day.

    JT – Wow. Just wow.

    Mrs. Crankipants – But at least he was a fungi. Always the life of the party.

    Danny – She’s 5’11, so she’s somewhat tall.

    Me too. They aren’t crumpled up in a pile by my bed. :)

    JT – Either one is rather scary.

    tjbbpgobIII – Funny how that works when we want to see the goodies.

    Chris C – Thread winner! Bawahahahaha!

    Hey, maybe they’ll bring back the original bondage themes of the character.

    Back in the 40′s, when the guy who created Wonder Woman (the shrink who also invented the lie detector) designed her costume, her brackelets had links of broken chain attached. If the villain could connect the severed ends, the chain reformed and took away all her powers.
