I just watched a bit of the Wonder Woman pilot that was recently not picked up to go to series. Woof, was that a bullet dodged! Wonder Woman is one of those properties that has had a lot of difficulty in being adapted to TV and film, and it kind of puzzles me as to what the problem is. One part Xena, one part Superman, with a dash of Captain America thrown in and there you go! Another thing about Wonder Woman that nobody seems to agree on is the outfit - long pants, short pants, skirt... eagle or double W symbol, many stars or a couple of big stars, everyone has a different opinion. I am of the mind that she is a character that should not be tied down to one look. I like the traditional garb, but feel that she should have a variety of outfits for different climates and conditions. Some should be more ceremonial in nature and some more suited for battle. Hopefully hollywood will finally work out the bugs one day and we can finally see a big screen interpretation worthy of comics most recognizable super-heroine.
