Lynda Carter is Magic and I am So Disappointed by the New Wonder Woman Poster with Adrianne Palicki

What was David E Kelley thinking when he cast Adrianne? Is she really a great actress? And why have pants if the costume looks more uncomfortable and sluttier than the 70’s version.

Lynda Carter who will turn 60 in July looks a million times better.  She was such a sweetheart and encouraging when asked about the new girl.

“What’s not to like! Adrianne [Palicki] looks gorgeous and I’m really looking forward to seeing David E. Kelley’s new series.”

“I think [Palicki] looks fabulous,” Carter, 59, tells E! Online. “It’s a new look and, jeez, her body looks fantastic.”

She adds, “I’m sure there will be people who say she looks better than me and like her better than me – and that’s also fine,” she says. “I want this story to be told again. I’m really excited. I can’t wait to see it.”

I must admit that Adrianne Palicki is pretty as a blonde, but she just looks awful in that promo photo and that horrible plastic outfit looks so cheap. Also boobs that far apart look totally fake to me. I guess I am nostalgic as well, but for me no one can fit the shoes of Lynda Carter. She had the most gorgeous eyes as well as the perfect body.

Why couldn’t they have given the role to Megan Fox? At least she’s looks amazing as a brunette with her beautiful blue eyes. Well I guess it has to do with the fact that she felt wonder woman was a lame super hero in terms of her powers. I think that was quite a big mistake.

Liv Tyler would have been a much better choice as well.

I hope the TV show will prove me wrong. After all this is just a poster. But I am not having high expectations about that. Will leave you with why Lynda Carter will always be Wonder Woman the same way Christopher Reeve will always be Superman, and Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno the Incredible Hulk.

And in an interview from 1997 when she was 46, she shows how down to earth she is. Just a regular mum whose 8 year old son is not that impressed that she played Wonder Woman.

    I’m with you on this one. I LOVED Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman and have a hard time imagining someone else in that role. (Ditto with Reeves as Superman and Ferrigno as the Incredible Hulk.)

    I also agree that the new outfit just looks strange. Oh well 🙁

      I am still blown away by the beauty of Lynda Carter. I think it’s her inner beauty and humility that shines through as well. Christopher Reeve also has that purity and kindness about him. I was so moved at how he became a real superman with his real life struggles. What an inspiration!

    I so agree about Lynda. She has the most gorgeous eyes I’ve seen, and she looks amazing still. If only we can all look that amazing at 60!!

    (Meeting you though SITS! Yeah!)

    I grew up worshipping Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman. My friends and I play-acted it all the time! She was such a positive role model for girls in the ’70s! A real woman kickin’ ass!!!

    I totally disagree with Megan Fox – she is a horrible actress. She would be an insult to the spirit of Wonder Woman.

    Liv Tyler would be too cute a Wonder Woman. She’d charm the bad guys to death!!

    Anne Hathaway would be interesting. She can be funny yet no-nonsense.

    This current Adrienne person… I don’t get it! Looks like a bad Halloween costume.

      I was a child of the 70’s and loved spinning around & pretending to transform. As I grew up I realized just how stunningly gorgeous Lynda Carter was.

      I guess Megan Fox doesn’t have the acting chops. too wooden huh?

      If only Lynda Carter’s daughter would take on the role.
