Adrianne Palicki has signed on to star for NBC’s upcoming re-launch of Wonder Woman and Lynda Carter, who originally played the role expressed her opinion on the new costume.
The 59-year-old Carter tells E! Online about the new TV incarnation, “I think [Palicki] looks fabulous.”
She adds, “It’s a new look and, jeez, her body looks fantastic.”
“I’m sure there will be people who say she looks better than me and like her better than me – and that’s also fine. I want this story to be told again. I’m really excited. I can’t wait to see it.”
Carter says she hopes people will cut the 27-year-old actress, some slack.
She says, “I’m very sensitive to the fact that she will be compared. There’s no getting around it.”
