Cautiously Optimistic

Lynda Carter On Gal Gadot and the Return of Wonder Woman

Glad as I am that Wonder Woman is getting some live-action screen time again, I do not envy Gal Gadot her job. Her role in the upcoming film Batman vs Superman will be the first time someone other than Lynda Carter has wielded the Lasso of Truth. Those are some big boots to fill.

As far as Carter’s concerned, though, she’s got Gadot’s back. In a Huffington Post interview, she spoke positively about her successor, but was cautious toward the as-of-yet-unknown screenplay.

Gal Gadot Gets Asked About Playing “Large Breasted” Wonder Woman In First Interview

Just yesterday, former Wonder Woman Lynda Carter spoke about the casting of Gal Gadot for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel follow up. Today, the actress herself speaks for the first time about taking on such an iconic role. Of course, her physical attributes were a topic of conversation, but don’t worry, there’s good news that involves the word “swords.”

Lynda Carter Welcomes Gal Gadot to Sisterhood of Traveling Hotpants, I Mean, Role of Wonder Woman

These days, when a new Batman or Superman actor is announced, your Ben Afflecks and Henry Cavils have a virtual rugby team (ok, maybe a basketball team… at least enough guys for an a capella group anyway) of other performances to draw from. Not so much for Wonder Woman, but at least reporters know exactly who to go to for opinions on the new blood.

Agent of S.T.Y.L.E.: Wonder Woman in Television

Greetings, people of Earth. This is the beginning of a regular column wherein I will discuss the history and evolution behind various costumes and designs in superhero comics and other fun media. I’ll also be throwing in my own opinions, which you can take or leave certainly since we all have different tastes. To kick things off, I thought it would be fun to talk about a lady first introduced in 1941: Wonder Woman AKA Diana Prince AKA Princess Diana of Themyscira, the Paradise Island. We now know for sure that Gal Gadot will be playing her in the as-yet-untitled sequel to Man of Steel that really seems like it should be titled Hey, We’re Almost the Justice League.

There’s a lot of debate going on about how Wonder Woman should be portrayed. So to add food for thought, this time we look at how the amazing Amazon has been portrayed in live-action shows, with a couple of honorable mentions from comics and animation.

Lynda Carter Talks Real Talk About How Hollywood Doesn’t Understand Wonder Woman

With the release of a long awaited and well produced Wonder Woman fan film today, the discussion of why she hasn’t had a feature film adaptation, while her counterparts Batman and Superman have had nearly twenty between them, has been riding high. Lynda Carter, the last woman to play the Amazon Princess in a live action adaptation, thinks she knows why Hollywood has struggled to adapt a version of the character that makes it to screens.

Holy Geeky Documentary Batman! PBS’ Pioneers of Television Takes on Superheroes. [VIDEO]

Watch Superheroes on PBS. See more from Pioneers of Television.

I’m a low-level documentary-a-holic (shut up, it’s a thing), and when the documentaries are geeky it’s even better. And yeah, this episode of PBS’s Pioneers of Television, about the superhero shows of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, is narrated by Ryan Seacrest. But I can let that slide if I’m watching Lynda Carter, Julie NewmarAdam West, Burt Ward, Lou Ferrigno and more talk about the history of superheroes on TV for an hour.

Don’t Argue with Lynda Carter About Wonder Woman, Even If She’s Actually Catherine O’Hara

Due to age differences, the staff of the Mary Sue is divided on whether Catherine O’Hara is most accurately described as “the mom from Home Alone” or “the lady in all the Christopher Guest movies” or “Character Actress Godess.” You’ll have to decide for yourself.

Lynda Carter, as you might know, was notoriously careful about getting typecast as Wonder Woman in her early career, not to mention a little uncomfortable with some of the attention she got for the role. She declined to appear in costume for her guest stint on The Muppet Show (only two episodes after Mark Hamill had guest starred as himself and Luke Skywalker, with C-3PO, R2-D2 and Chewbacca), but that was okay, because we got Miss Piggy as Wonder Woman instead.
