At this point, everyone and their mother has seen the first image of Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman and dissected it ad nauseum. Everywhere The Blot looked every article I saw was either about Palicki’s Wonder Woman costume or March Madness, and with Texas now eliminated, I’d rather talk more about this costume and the new NBC television show’s logo.

For me, the costume actually works pretty well. It’s not perfect or what I imagined it would look like, but it’s much better than some of the costumes in other live action comic book adaptations. And it’s definitely better that what it could have been. I think it was a given they’d be giving Diana pants ala her new look in the DC comic books, I just wish they had picked better colors for the uniform. I think a slight change in the costume’s color change would go a long way. But if I had to make one major change it would be this, the boots need to be red! Who in the hell wears boots the identical color as one’s pants? They change those boots and The Blot is a happy man.
To be honest, I hate the show’s logo way more than Palicki’s costume. To me, the Wonder Woman logo looks cheap. I like that they incorporated the key elements (stars, the double W eagle, red and blue colors), but why not just stick with what works? The old double W was classic and recognizable by all. And even better yet, use the title from the current Wonder Woman comic book series. It’s got the colors and the stars, and I really love that font. But enough from me, what do you all think about the new television show’s logo and lead actress?
