Wonder Woman on the Big Screen

Despite numerous films featuring Superman and Batman, DC's mightiest mythical marvel, Wonder Woman, has had only a few appearances in the realm of film. Linda Carter was the first Wonder Woman in the 70's. Fighting for our rights in her satin tights (and a whalebone corset so tight she couldn't bend at the waist), Linda Carter's Wonder Woman was a TV icon. Over 30 years later, Adrianne Palicki was cast to play Wonder Woman in a made-for-tv movie that never aired due to advance fan-hatred over the shiny vinyl costume and bad script. And now in 2015, Gal Gafot will be the first Wonder Woman ever to appear on the silver screen in "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice", clad in a darkly armored version of the classic Wonder Woman costume.
