It's funny, when Tyra came back for the last two episodes of Friday Night Lights, I figured I wasn't the only one thinking she had the physical look and build to be Wonder Woman. And now she is, the first live action Wonder Woman since Lynda Carter. Good choice.

Also funny is that maybe a more obvious choice would have been Minka Kelly, at least for her look but not in stature, but she was off the table by getting cast as the lead in Charlie's Angels. They're both rehashing 70's TV shows.

Here is a casting sheet detailing the character descriptions for the main characters in the new series:

She's gonna have black hair, right? Every pic I'm finding with Go Ogle has her blonde.

Wonder Woman has black hair. End of discussion.

They will dye it, but every pic I see doesn't show the meat in certain parts of her body that is required for the role. Diana is an Amazon not Ally McBeal. Even if she is a good actress, the script from the David E. Kelly camp scare the hell out of me. I can imagine her being shoved into a court room every other episode or almost an entire season for no real reason.

She's fantastic, this is an inspired choice.

Yeah, I'm not buying the casting at all. The summary for the script treatment earlier was enough for some doubt to creep in; now it's full-blown questioning of the entire thing.

It's got the fate of the remade Bionic Woman all over it. Although Michelle Ryan was good and come to think of it, would be a far better fit for Wonder Woman than Palicki.

Good call. Beth Phoenix would be perfect (with dyed hair). Too bad she has WWE level "acting" skills. Oh well, there is always the Xena Warrior Princess remake, where acting wouldn't be required.
