When details actually got confirmed about David E. Kelley's "Girl Tony Stark: The Series" reimagining of "Wonder Woman," the principal thing that stood out as a "maybe" for me was that it sounded like it was written with a decisively adult-aged (read: mid-30s or older) vision in mind for the lead character: Kelley's Diana has apparently been living in "Man's World" long enough to not only engage-in, break-off and be-wistful-about a relationship with Steve Trevor but also to establish herself jointly as a metahuman crimefighter and serve as CEO of a self-founded industrial corporation - all of which would seem to demand a certain amount of "gravitas" that age tends to add. Yes, Amazons are supposed to functionally-immortal, but visual-cues are visual-cues. Lisa Edelstein plays "House's"boss while Olivia Wilde plays one of his minions for a reason. My train of thought was "Oh, they're actually going for Wonder WOMAN as opposed to Wonder GIRL? I like that."
Well, first impressions be damned. They've made their choice, and the new Wonder Woman is Adrianne Palicki, age 28, late of "Supernatural," and "Friday Night Lights." Her highest-profile film appearance was in "Legion," though some may recognize her as Holly Rocket in "Women in Trouble." She's also part of the Seth Green Cartoon Clique - doing voices for "Robot Chicken," "Titan Maximum" and "Family Guy." Not a bad actress, and you certainly can't say she doesn't meet certain basic "aesthetic" requirements: striking, statuesque, and it'd be uncharitable to describe her physique as anything less than "smokin'" - all the more reason to lament how unlikely they are to preserve the classic uniform.
Still... a little young-looking, I think. Not a deal-breaker, but I'm not getting "intimidation" here. Bad guys should be a bit "struck" by WW even before the "can throw a bus at you" aspect kicks-in, from where I sit.
