Ever since Adrianne Palicki landed the role of Wonder Woman in the remake of the classic TV series, fans of the show have been eager to see the actress in action.

Now they finally have the chance to catch a glimpse of Adrianne taking on the role, after the first pictures were released from the set of the show in Los Angeles.

The snaps show Adrianne - in her sexy new Wonder Woman costume -running down the street during the filming of an action sequence.

And the 27-year-old also shows off her stunt skills at one point by running over the roof of a car.

The original version of Wonder Woman was one of the biggest small screen hits of the 1970s and made a star of Lynda Carter, who played the superheroine.

The character was known for having a wealth of superpowers, including superhuman strength, superhuman speed and extra-strong senses.

The new incarnation will also feature actress Elizabeth Hurley, who will play Wonder Woman's nemesis Veronica Cale.

Hurley recently revealed she was part of the show by posting on Twitter when she first got the role: 'Thrilled to be doing the NBC pilot Wonder Woman'.

She added that she will be playing the lead character's nemesis saying: 'I'll be playing the evil villain. Can't wait'.

It was announced in February that relative unknown Adrianne Palicki had beaten a number of other actresses to the role of Wonder Woman.

Palicki is better known in America for her role in the drama series Friday Night Lights, but has yet to make a household name for herself.


Original wonder: Lynda Carter wore a more revealing - and patriotic - outfit in the 1970s version of the show

Shortly after she was revealed to have the lead a photo of her appeared in the character's revamped costume, which ditched the 'big pants' worn by Lynda Carter in the 70s in favour of skin-tight PVC trousers.

However the costume attracted some controversy for not featuring the patriotic American stars and stripes which featured on Carter's outfit.

Rival TV network Fox said; 'The new and allegedly improved Wonder Woman (a.k.a Diana Prince) has been given a head-to-toe makeover by artist Jim Lee, replacing her signature American flag decorated briefs with skintight…pants and purging the super hero of all her trappings of Americana.

A spokesperson for the character's creator DC Comics defended the new look, saying 'The latest evolution of Wonder Woman’s iconic costume is a central part of the latest comic book storyline.

The new show is written by writer and producer David E. Kelley, who brought Ally McBeal, Chicago Hope and Boston Legal to our screens.

The plot is described as 'a reinvention of the iconic D.C. comic in which Wonder Woman - aka Diana Prince - is a vigilante crime fighter in L.A. but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.

No broadcast date for the show has yet been given.

Many Hollywood actresses had been vying for the coveted role of Woman Woman, among them Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks.

The word is, this show is absolute rubbish. I'm really disappointed because Wonder Woman is my favourite superhero. Oh well, if it actually makes it to broadcast I'll watch it and make my mind up then.
