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, too.

Access Hollywood sat down with Lynda and asked her she thinks of Gal Gadot’s costume, which was first revealed at San Diego Comic-Con. Here’s what our Great Lady of Wonder Woman Past had to say:

Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say. […] I don’t know. I haven’t seen it yet, so I really can’t comment. Maybe there’s a lot more color in it than what we saw in the picture. It’s almost impossible to play a superhero anyway. You can’t. You just have to play a character that happens to do these amazing things. That’s the only way you can do it. And the costumes all take care of themselves, but it was a little more – I’ll have to wait and see.

I hate to comment on something that I haven’t seen and I’m very supportive of Gal Gadot. I’m very supportive of them doing Wonder Woman, putting her in any capacity. I think she needs to be out there. … It’s high time somebody took a chance and did it and so I’m really happy about that.

In non-judgemental agreement with Lynda are Amanda Deibert and Cat Staggs—the awesome, married, writer-and-artist lady-duo behind the third story in Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman (which you can find in the first print issue of the comic). Chatting with The Wall Street Journal, Staggs said,

When I was sitting at my table at [San Diego] Comic-Con, I could hear the rumble in Hall H through the wall, and then I checked my Twitter feed, and they had just showed the costume in the room. I remember sitting at my table, and finally someone showed a picture of it, and I got weepy. I got so excited. It was kind of an overwhelming and kind of a shocking feeling. I didn’t expect that to happen.

Deibert, on the other hand, is waiting to see the flick before she decides:

I don’t like to cast a judgment until I’ve seen somebody because I’ve been surprised so many times. You think somebody’s weird for a part, and then Heath Ledger kills it as Joker, and you’re like, “OK, nevermind,” because it’s amazing. I will know what I think about her as Wonder Woman when I see her as Wonder Woman.

I think we can all agree that we’re just excited that Wonder Woman is finally coming to the big screen. And, sure, I have some feels about the new Wonder Woman costume; but honestly, mostly I’m just glad it’s not this:
