    Or is this society of sophisticated prudes something new?
    The shorts aren't the problem, I think the top is. In the old show Lynda hung upsidedown in it and I spent weeks trying to figure out how she kept it on. The modern action sequences for a superhero movie are a lot more detailed than they were back then and I can't see an actress doing a double back flip or cartwheel into a spinning heel kick and still keep the top on.

    These illustrators need to study fabrics before they keep going that route. Even wool is better than that.

    1. It is most likely a corset. Not a true one, but I would not be surprised if the top had some boning.

    2. The scene kept cutting away. It goes back and forth between Diana and the man she is working with. Odds are pretty high that they had to adjust a few times during the takes.

    I think that people assume that since folks complain about strapless tops that they can't stay on at all. They can stay on for a bit. If they couldn't you would not see women wearing them at all, but they would not be able to realistically stand up to the amount of activity you would see with Wonder Woman. Sooner or later it would fall. I can't imagine that any warrior would bother wearing something so impractical. She would honestly be better off topless than wearing something that she would have to adjust.

    Green Lantern's was made out of cartoon. We're really still having trouble trying to imagine costume logistics?

    So cgi the costume? It looked off in the Green lantern movie. Meanwhile the new Superman costume looks pretty good on the actor.

    Awesome pic! It's both iconic and plausible for live action. I'd definitely go along with that if the New 52 look is too tricky to do.

    I was too young to appreciate the true magic of film editing back then :) I think my final conclusion was some sort of super glue.

    If a WW movie is made, it should be the new 52 costume to have more synergy between the comics and movies.

    Just to complement, the top never fell with Lynda, but it happened once with her stunt double Jeannie Epper.

    I don't understand why many posters here are worried if the top will stay on or not. They made it work in the tv series, and if the top did fall off, of course we are not going to be privy to see it. It's called editing and I am sure they will do as many takes as necessary to get the right shot.

    I, for one, am not worried about whatever actress they choose to wear the classic outfit and whether the top will fall off or not. Who cares if it is realistic! We read about a unrealistic comic book hero that wears an unrealistic costume and most of us like it.

    So again, for those that seem to think we have to get some realistic version of the costume because they fear the actress top won't stay on--why are you so worried?

    What if it seems as if she's about to have a wardrobe malfunction every major action scene, and it becomes a point that reviewers pick on unrelentingly?

    I really think she should keep the current one, I really would hate to see her changed for the movie, either that or the skirt one would be ok, i guess, but the current one (the regular one) is by far the best.

    Well I just hope they have her wear the red boots because the blue blends in, if they do the new 52. Well, I want to see the classical costume. I always want to see the more Greek based costume on wonder woman. I hope the amazons will be more perez and marston based because there amazons had more based on greek clothes then New 52. I mean the amazons play just as much of a role if they do if they do a wonder woman movie

    They could use this one.

    How would the reviewers know that she has had a wardrobe malfunction? If you see the finished product, there is no way of knowing that. We only know in interviews that the stuntwoman for Lynda had a wardrobe malfunction, but not Lynda herself.
