They don't. These 'creative" geniuses just rip off the BBC shows then cannibalize each others. Newton Minnow called TV a "great wasteland" back in the 50s. He should see it now!

It's not a remake. Wonder Woman is a comic series, it's not just a TV show from the 70s. It's a new take on the COMICS character. A new adaptation.
In saying that, I'm so-so on this. A new take could breathe some fresh life into the character, but I don't think she'll ever be portrayed better than she was in Justice League or the recent animated Wonder Woman movie.
