WONDER WOMAN: Adrianne Palicki Reflects On Failed Pilot And Shares Her Thoughts On Gal Gadot's Version

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. alum Adrianne Palicki reflects on her brief time as Wonder Woman, expressing her excitement about suiting up and revealing what she thinks about Gal Gadot's take on Diana Prince!

Way back in 2011, Ally McBeal's David E. Kelley was tasked with bringing Wonder Woman back to the small screen alongside actress Adrianne Palicki. The idea was that the world would know the Amazon warrior as both Wonder Woman and the L.A. based Diana Themyscira, the leader of a large corporation that sells Wonder Woman merchandise to fund her crime-fighting operation. 

The hero was set to have a third secret identity as Diana Prince, a Clark Kent-style character who wore glasses, owned a cat, and enjoyed romcoms in her spare time. 

NBC decided against moving ahead with the show, and Palicki has now reflected on her experience.

"It was honestly the scariest thing ever and the best thing ever at the time. Getting to wear that outfit was just a huge dream," she admitted in an interview with Entertainment Weekly"It was fun for me to get to play three different characters ultimately," Palicki continued. "I loved that David E. Kelley is really great at writing really strong women, and I found he did that beautifully in all of the different personas. What they all still had [in common] was this beautiful vulnerability of isolation."

"It was devastating when it didn’t go. It was so big. I feel like maybe if it had been [made] one or two more years [later], it would’ve been a shoo-in."

As for what she thinks about Gal Gadot's version of Diana Prince, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. alum added: "It's so great to see this character come to life because it is important for young girls. She changed my life."

It is a shame the Wonder Woman TV series didn't move forward as planned, and The CW similarly failed to get a pilot called Amazons off the ground a few years later.
