Lynda Carter

  1. Lynda Carter Wants In On the New Wonder Woman Movie

    After hearing the bad news that Michelle MacLaren is no longer going to be helming the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, we're hearing a bit of cool news today. Lynda Carter, the first live-action Wonder Woman, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly Radio, expressed interest in being involved in the new Wonder Woman film. Not as Diana Prince, obviously (that honor goes to Gal Gadot), but in a different capacity.

  4. Lynda Carter And The Ladies Behind The Latest Wonder Woman Comic Talk Gal Gadot

    All of the opinions!

    Everyone on the internet has an opinion about Gal Gadot and her Wonder Woman look in Batman v Superman: The Epicest Court Case. And hey, that's great; but what about the people who are really invested in Diana? People like Queen Lynda Carter, and the ladies who are making the latest WW comic? Well, they have some feels about Gadot's look, too.

  5. Wonder Woman Gal Gadot Takes The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Calls Out Lynda Carter

    Oh, it's on now.

    As DC's Wonder Woman once said, "Ice cream is wonderful." Buckets full of ice? Less so, if the reaction of Batman V Superman's Gal Gadot is any indication. But it's all for the very worthy cause of ALS Research, which you can donate to without having to dump ice all over yourself. Unless you're into that, I guess.

  6. Lynda Carter On Gal Gadot and the Return of Wonder Woman

    Cautiously Optimistic

    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.

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

    Great Hera!

    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."

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

    Great Hera!

    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.

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

    Agent of S.T.Y.L.E.

    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.

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

    Great Hera!

    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.

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

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    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.

    Great Hera!

    The South by Southwest festival -- better known as SXSW -- is quickly approaching, and just one movie being shown at the Austin, Texas gathering of talented and creative types is the documentary Wonder Women!

You'll want to see the trailer, and good news! It's after the jump, plus more excited news about the film.

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

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    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. (via Straitened Circumstances.)

  17. Lynda Carter Might Be In The Wonder Woman Show

    Great Hera!

    For many people Lynda Carter is the definitive Wonder Woman, for her starring role in the 1975-79 television series. And though she hasn't had many other screen credits, she's still a lady with great class, and has never forgotten that Wonder Woman put her on the map. Fans of Carter should be excited to know that she's been talking to David E. Kelly, writer and director behind the new Wonder Woman show as well. From Monsters and Critics:

    The 59-year-old actress revealed she had been in talks with writer David E. Kelley but refused to confirm whether she would have a role. 'I've talked to David E. Kelley, who's a brilliant writer, a number of times and we're hoping to plan something,' she said. 'But I cannot reveal.'

  18. Wonder Woman Getting a TV Show: Gee. Thanks.

    Both Deadline Hollywood and The Hollywood Reporter have some blockbuster geek news today: instead of making the long pre-production purgatory dwelling Wonder Woman movie, DC Entertainment is optioning a television show featuring the Amazonian princess, with David E. Kelley to write and produce. Aside from the sense of "Oh, good, somebody is going to do something with Wonder Woman," this tingles every last geek girl sense in my body. Nerdrage commencing in t-minus... now.

  19. Why Fox News Really Should Be Angry About Wonder Woman

    Nationalism, it's just so cute and old fashioned, dontcha think? Right. So... Fox News is reporting about the Wonder Woman costume change, so that you can decide:
    Wonder Woman may have finally been given a pair of pants, but has she been stripped of her patriotism? The new and allegedly improved Wonder Woman (a.k.a Diana Prince), has been given a head-to-toe makeover by artist Jim Lee, replacing her signature American flag decorated briefs with skintight black pants and purging the super hero of all her trappings of Americana.
    You can see our reporting on the new costume, right here. Whether or not you decide anything from it is up to you. We don't want to pressure anyone. In the interest of proper comics education, we'd like to let Fox News know that they could have much better reasons to call Wonder Woman un-Patriotic (by their own definition) if they spent the time to find out more about her than what you get from watching the opening sequence from the Lynda Carter show.
