Charisma Carpenter – New Wonder Woman Costume Not Okay For A Woman

"Poor Photoshop job there folks"

Charisma Carpenter who played Cordelia Chase in Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel, wants to be Wonder Woman.

Indeed she was quite pushy with a certain Mr Joss Whedon when he was involved in a possible film.

So what does she think of the new costume in the comic books? Live For Films asked her;

LFF: Quickly… (rummaging through folder) They're changing her costume, in the comics, I don't know if you know about that?

CC: No. Let me see.

LFF: (hands over a picture) This is her new outfit. Can you tell us what you think?

CC: (very unimpressed) Oh. It could be sexier. It could be sexier. Why the leggings? She definitely needs a cape.

LFF: (laughing)

CC: The shrug isn't so happening, maybe if she took off the shrug. Is this official?

LFF: (hoping so) It is.

CC: Who's doing it?

LFF: J. Michael Straczynski.

(still unimpressed silence)

LFF: Not impressed? (taking picture back)

CC: I'm American, so it's, I'm caught in the authentic… Maybe if she was a girl, like Wonder Girl. That'd be OK for a girl, but not a woman.

Why do I suddenly feel that a bunch of your fans would prefer you in the original as well, Charisma?
