Wonder Woman: The Great Costume Swindle?

When the costume for televisions newest incarnation of Wonder Woman hit the internet, the fans were outraged. The outfit was cheap, shiny, incorrect and disrespectful. Two weeks later some on set pictures have leaked that show the Wonder Woman costume has been changed.

Sure, the new costume is an improvement, but had we been shown this costume first would we still be so forgiving? Or have producers pulled the oldest trick in the book - showing us something outrageously bad so that we'll happily accept something moderately better?

Wonder Woman: Why the Costume Matters

Nothing can stir up quite so much trouble as a Superhero costume. Wonder Woman is back in the spotlight, with David E. Kelley's latest adaptation seeing fit to clad the usually fierce Adrianne Palicki in what appears to be very shiny latex.

Ex-Wonder Woman Lynda Carter has backed the new look, but within hours of it hitting the internet fans were rushing to post their own versions of what the costume should look like. Which, generally, isn't such a good sign. Why such the huge reaction to a costume? And is it really a Big Deal?
