  2. I'll say what many people are thinking about the new WonderWoman. She's sorely lacking in the beauty of Aphrodite department. Everyone realizes that a Lynda Carter type beauty doesn't come along that often, but this one looks like a girl playing dress up for Comic Con.

  3. Hate the new WW costume. What happened, did they run out of color? She's is now shades of bronze.

  4. Gal Gadot, the new Wonder Woman recently plucked from total obscurity, isn't polling well with her debut pictures. There's talk all over the Internet that she may be replaced soon.

  5. I'm surprised Wonder Woman isn't a man, with all the changes happening recently.

  6. "Downing of Malaysian MH17 may be a war crime."

    Of course it's a war crime, and so is the aftermath.

  7. Actually, I've seen plenty of positive on WW's look. Also, once the red filter is removed from the image (color correcting it), the top is dark red with gold/bronze edging and the skirt is dark blue. They just 'shopped the image to look gritty.

  8. Wonder Woman has now morphed into Xena.

  9. Mr Evans and Mr Taylor Jhonson should have a bromance- no make get naked together...

  10. new wonderwoman is way too short at 5'4

    Linda Carter was 5'9

    she is also thin but they can put her on weight gainers and intense training to fix that. Lifts will only go so far to make her taller

    Posted by: saywhat | Jul 28, 2014 6:57:13 PM

  11. my bad

    read her height wrong, she is also 5'9

    so she just needs to work on her acting and get her weight up

  12. Wonder woman! Pfft.

    What about Prince Harry's pretty pink body, or those flamingos pecking at the T. Rex? You have to be discerning if you read Towleroad.

  13. Awesome Wonder Woman costume! So glad they were able to find a happy medium between the classic comic book version and something that would play to a modern audience. I also like that it reflects her Hellenic roots and looks functional for its purpose - fighting the bad guys!
