Now that Adrianne Palicki has been cast as NBC's new Wonder Woman, what will her life be like? This leaked audition tape for David E. Kelley's new TV series showcases some interesting dialog between the ice cream loving CEO and her minions... mostly about her breasts.
As we discussed earlier, in this TV series Wonder Woman has two alternate identities: Diana Prince is also Diana Themyscyra, head of Themyscyra enterprises — basically a female Tony Stark. She runs the company and the whole world knows that she is crime fighting as Wonder Woman on the side. Which means one thing: merchandising!
This audition tape (above) for Tanit Phoenix (Death Race 2) showcases exactly how terrible the merchandising is that poor Diana has to consider. The whole thing is enough to make Diana feel inadequate about her cup size, something she's happy to discuss endlessly during a business meeting.
The tape, which was uploaded yesterday, never says outright that this is the script for the NBC series. But the clues are all there: they call her character Diana, and she's looking at a line of dolls that fund her crime fighting. It all seems just as horrifying as the script review we posted earlier. Just the "big tits save lives" line alone is enough to make us want to claw our faces off.
We're crossing all of our fingers and toes that this isn't the actual script that will make it on the air (and there's a reasonable chance they're just reading from some crummy script they found online, so let's keep our hopes up). But if not, oof. This could be worse than The Cape. For more on the weirdness of the Wonder Woman pilot, check out two more script reviews from The Daily Beast and Comics Alliance.
Thanks for the tip, Lawdog!
