Tanit Phoenix Copley

  1. Adrianne Palicki. Wonder Woman, TV, 2011.  The DC comicbook heroine had not been seen on screens since Lynda Carter ended her four year reign on ABC in 1979. Time  then, said Warner, for a new movie.  DC’s testosterone duo, Batman and Superman, had cleaned up,  now it up to the beautiful superhuman Amazon warrior Princess Diana of Themysacira, her Lasso of Truth, her indestructible bracelets and (honest) her invisible plane.  With who…? Across a decade of plans by producers as diverse as Joel Silver (so wrong) and Joss Whedon (so right), 24 beauties were in the frame: from Madonna and South Africa’s Phoernix  (or Copkley since marryng  South African star Sharlto Copley in 2016)  to Whedon’s favourites, Kate Beckinsale and Cobie Smulders. Then, the film morphed   into an updated TV series by David E Kelley – that, too, was dead after the rushed pilot. Palicki was the sole actress considered by DEK for TV – she was previously seen by George Miller for WW in his aborted Justice League, in 2008.
