Wonder Woman Gets Some New Digs, in Preperation for a Movie, Perhaps?

12 Comments

I like to think that there’s a reason D.C. Comics is re-designing Wonder Woman for the first time in God knows how many decades, and that’s in preparation for a live-action “Wonder Woman” movie. After all, it’s kind of hard to sell a tall Amazon chick in bra and undies to the non-comic book reading masses. Mind you, it ain’t that hard to sell such a person to comic book readers, but you know, not everyone is brave enough to brave the dark, foreboding corridors of comic book stores, what with their teeming masses of geeks and nerds and guys who have never touched a woman before.

This new look for WW, on the other hand, would appeal to the moviegoing kids. And isn’t that what it’s all about nowadays? The moviegoing kids and their 3D fixation?

Take a look at the newly redesigned Wonder Woman (via IGN) in action, which comes from the pencils of D.C. bigshot Jim Lee himself. This new version of Wonder Woman is set to make her debut with J. Michael Straczynski’s reign on the title.

    I don't hate it but I don't love it.

    Pros: It has enough of the classic WW look to make her recognizable.
    She actually looks badass and like a warrior and not a stripper or like she's going swimming.
    The modern aspects of the costume like the mini-jacket reflect current fashion trends.
    Still sexy.

    Cons: It's for a storyline and probably won't last (which could be a pro too)
    Shoulda saved the look for her WW:Earth One Graphic Novel to follow the Superman one and the Batman one.
    She's got clothes on ;-)

    All that said this would be a better look for Wonder Girl, than WW. But oh well.

    Oh here's a link to DC's site with more info on the project: http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/2010/06/29/unveili

    They did that with the ugly black and yellow look she had in the 90s and it looked horrible. I think they should lose the jacket and it'd look fine. But I know most purists will hate it. Hell alot of people just can't handle change.

    I think it looks good. I agre with deadpool loose the jacket. But i think with this new look more actress can play the part instead of a small select few.

    totally agree with dedpool and to add something, it's more realistic and suited for battle, the original costume looks good on comics but this one is better for a movie.
