Lynda Carter in talks to star in 'Wonder Woman 2'

The actress added, "Am I open to it?" Because Wonder Woman - it's the idea of her.

Wonder Woman is doing phenomenally well and as of this week, it can also boast having the best hold of any superhero movie in over 15 years.

Carter now stars in the CW series "Supergirl" and just filmed a part in "Super Troopers 2" - but it is unclear if either of these roles interfered with her getting a part in "Wonder Woman".


"It really is up to Patty, and if it works in an organic way it'll be great fun and it'll be wonderful to do", Carter revealed. Director Patty Jenkins has been pressing for a cameo from the actor, who suited up for the film's starring role via her own TV series in the '70s, since she started work on the first movie, but the timing didn't work out. "This is all built on the magical legacy you are at the core of", Jenkins said as she responded to a congratulatory tweet from Carter.

And Gal Gadot wants you to know that she appreciates it. It's not about superpowers, it's about her intellect and compassion.

Most comic book movies grind to a near-halt after a month or so, but Wonder Woman keeps on pushing forward, with week-over-week drops remaining particularly low as people keep going to see it in theaters. Jeff Berg and Geoff John from DCEU have also admitted that the character development and streamlined story helped Wonder Woman succeed.


Carter's comments come after Jenkins praised the actress for her support in making the big-screen version. It's wonderful that it took this long to get Wonder Woman on the big screen, but now was the ideal time to introduce the superhero.

Carter was thrilled to see that the film introduced a whole new group of people - especially women - to the Wonder Woman world.

Not least because it means DC have finally turned out a good movie, after the unwaftable stinkers that were Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. Because that's who we are.
