NBC’s Wonder Woman reboot has cast its villain — Elizabeth Hurley (pictured, right) will take on the role of Veronica Cale, a villainess who “likes men and women” and may have an erotic rivalry with a certain superhero.
A breakdown for Hurley’s character reads as follows: "Female, open ethnicity, late 30s to early 40s. Beautiful, highly-educated, highly accomplished, she runs one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the country ... but she's afflicted with the serious deep-seated Wonder Woman envy. Whatever she is, or will be in life ... she'll never be her. And it causes her innards to rot. She loves men, but likes women. There might be an unstated chemistry between her and Wonder Woman, at least on her side."
Friday Night Lights star Adrianne Palicki (pictured, left) has been cast in the role made famous by Lynda Carter. The new Wonder Woman is expected to premiere in the fall.
