I actually completely disagree with all of you! lol seriously, I think this is going to be brilliant!
I am a huge fan of the actress and have been for years. She was "the fake Supergirl" in Smallville back when Clark met who he THOUGHT was his Kryptonian cousin but turned out to be his father messing with a human girl, giving her powers and fake memories to try and convince Clark to embrace his destiny... Which was quite a silly plot, but she made one heck of a Supergirl! Then I saw her again as the big bad in the Pilot for the Aquaman series, starring alongside the now Green Arrow actor. She kicked butt so much in both those roles! She also played the iconic character of Jessica Moore in Supernatural.
To be fair, her performance in Legion was mostly rubbish, but then so was the film - lol.
She is no stranger to "remakes" or "reimaginings", either, as she did the Pilot for the new Lost In Space television series way-back-when.
As for the suit, I blooming well love it! What were you expecting, the classic costume from the comic books and the old series? Come on, it is not exactly practical, is it? She would freeze! I am talking realism here. If you are going to be a vigilante crime fighter, you do NOT wear leotards...
I have watched some of the set footage posted on YouTube, I have read interviews, etc - I have been keeping a close eye on this series - and although I was sceptical at first (the idea of a vigilante heroine running around a modern city in that classic costume with an invisible jet and a whip made me want to laugh), my hopes are now held high. I am really looking forward to the trailer, and to the Pilot's premiere.
Bring. It. On.
Ps. Yes, I love the old series and the comics, in case you were wondering if I am someone new to the world of Wonder Woman.
