Meet Your New Wonder Woman

Illustration for article titled Meet Your New Wonder Woman

Meet Adrianne Palicki. She's your new Wonder Woman! Friday Night Lights fans may recognize her as Tyra; she was also in Supernatural. Palicki ran track in high school and is 5'11", so we're thinking she will make a pretty good superhero.

The new show will air on NBC and David E. Kelley — who created Picket Fences, Chicago Hope, The Practice, Ally McBeal, Boston Public and Boston Legal — is in charge of adapting the DC Comics tale of an Amazon with super-human strength for TV. According to reports, Diana Prince (Wonder Woman's real name) will be a "very modern woman (and a lover of Beyonce.)"

Will there be an invisible jet? Will there be a lasso of truth? Will there be a star-spangled bustier leotard? We'll have to wait and see. One thing we're fairly sure of: They won't be using the 1975 Wonder Woman theme song. Ever listened to the lyrics? All the world is waiting for you… And the power you possess… In your satin tights, fighting for your rights…

I keep hearing that she was the best of the young actresses on FNL, so I must act: is she really worth the hype? And if so, will that translate into her being the heir apparent of Lynda Carter?
