Lois Lane is… Wonder Woman?
Not quite, but Erica Durance, who played Smallville‘s enterprising journalist, will be slipping into the superheroine’s duds when she guest-stars on Harry’s Law on Wednesday, Jan. 11 (NBC, 9/8c).
As TVLine previously reported, Durance plays a psychologically damaged woman who takes on the persona of the popular DC Comics character to exact vigilante-style justice. (Cue the Harry’s Lawyers.) Now, we have your first look at the brunette beauty in costume.
As Smallville fans are well aware, Durance wore a lot of outfits during her time on the Superman-in-the-making series — including a Amazonian warrior princess get-up not too different from that of Diana Prince’s alter ego. But, she says, nothing compares to the “very surreal” experience of sporting the real thing.
“It was a lot of fun,” she shared during our visit to the Harry’s Law set. “I think any woman would be lying if she didn’t have a moment’s hesitation — you know, you’re jumping into some pretty tight clothes. But it’s so much more than that. It’s such an iconic character.”

Speaking of crime-fighting couture, was Durance grateful to don the latest incarnation of the costume, which features pants versus skin-bearing, bathing suit-like bottoms — akin to a version worn by Adrianne Palicki for Harry’s Law creator David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman pilot?
“I will say this: There’s a whole difference to being ready to wear Underoos and being ready to wear a pair of pants that are slim-fitting,” she replies with a laugh. “I am grateful that I am wearing the pants. And I like the new costume.”
