New Wonder Woman will wear Lynda Carter short shorts after all

Still a bit miffed about the long pants our Amazon princess will be wearing in NBC's new upcoming Wonder Woman TV series? Secretly hoped she'd instead be wearing those short shorts Lynda Carter iconically rocked in the mid-'70s? If so, you're about to get your wish.

That's what NBC president Robert Greenblatt revealed to TV Line when he spoke about the strong fan outcry sparked over the long pants Wonder Woman's (Adrianne Palicki) been wearing in all the pics we've seen until now.

"There was an initial outcry about the long pants - you know, skintight pants as opposed to those little shorts [worn by Lynda Carter in the original TV series]. But the shorts were always planned. They are actually used in the final confrontation when she beats Veronica Cale (played by Elizabeth Hurley)."

Now, we haven't seen this third version of the Wonder Woman costume yet, so we're really curious as to how the short shorts will turn out.

But until we get to see that third costume, let's head down memory lane for a moment ...
