Wonder Woman identity revealed!

Wonder Woman

And she’s 27 year old, Adrianne Palicki! Most recently she appeared in Friday Night Lights while her forthcoming turn in feature film, Red Dawn, marks the directorial debut of renowned stunt director Dan Bradley. Interestingly, she has already appeared on tv with super powers having played Supergirl in Smallville. It looks like someone at DC and Warner Bros took note and after almost ten years in development and various big names previously attached (most famously Angelina Jolie and Joss Whedon) Wonder Woman will see the light of day.

Jeffrey Reiner (The Event) will direct the pilot of Wonder Woman– a reimagining of the iconic superhero created in 1941 by William Moulton Marston and famously played by Lynda Carter in the original 70’s tv series- which will focus on Diana and her struggle to maintain her life as a super powered defender of justice and a successful corporate executive.

Only last month the script for the pilot had been passed on by every network however with a new president of programming, Bob Greenblatt, NBC picked it up. According to Deadline, Palicki was the only actress invited to test for the role. This could have something to do with Reiner having directed and produced episodes of Friday Night Lights. Could the two have been talking about this for while?

However it happened, Palicki certainly looks the part and we look forward to seeing the Amazing Amazon on screens in the future.
