Three guys from "That Guy With the Glasses" review the 2011 pilot of "Wonder Woman", a pilot SO bad that apparently "it became nuthin'", as Jules Winfield would say.
Based only on the review, I can see why. It was bad. In comic book movie terms it was Halle-Berry- Catwoman-bad.
I can forgive the limited budget. I can forgive that it was the first episode. I can't forgive that Wonder Woman was a jerk. How often did she smile in this?
It seemed to me that they were somehow combining Superman and Batman along with a public/secret identity. How can an identity be secret AND public you ask? Somehow it happens here. There are a lot of legal matters here, apparently being a superhero will give you headaches. That's not a bad idea. Superman would probably need a lawyer as they explored in the film "The Incredibles". However, since Wonder Woman is NOT a nice person in any way, her legal team must be overworked.
Now she seemed like Superman
I always thought of Wonder Woman as the DC version of Thor. I like Thor's look, it says superhero AND Norse warrior at the same time. Maybe she should have looked something more like this:
Just a thought.
But they tried to combine Superman's public persona with Batman's attitude towards criminals. Big difference between the two: Superman has faith in our justice system, Batman doesn't. If I had to choose between the two, Wonder Woman is more like Superman if anyone.
Basically they tried to make her SUPER tough and over compensated. That along with a bunch of little issues, made the pilot weak. No wonder NBC passed. Stick to legal dramas, David E Kelly!
