The original Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, is eyeing a role in the “Wonder Woman” sequel.
In a new interview with People, Carter reveals they were trying to work her into the first film but it couldn’t work due to the timing. Now, she says she has already talked to the creators about appearing in the follow-up.
With talks of a “Wonder Woman” sequel growing, Carter says it’s up to director Patty Jenkins how Carter can appear.
“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. “Am I open to it? Absolutely. I ADORE Patty Jenkins, and it’ll be wonderful to do. But we’ll just see how that goes,” she continued.
Carter, 65, gushed about how much she loved “Wonder Woman” and that before she even saw the movie she knew Jenkins and Gal Gadot would slay.
“I was so taken with the both of them, and taken with Patty from the beginning when she very first got this film, and we talked on the phone,” she revealed.
“I just said that she knows who this character is. Because Wonder Woman, it’s the idea of her. It’s not about superpowers, it’s about her intellect and compassion. It’s so much more than some comic book character, because we identify with it,” the actress said.
She is very pleased with the film being such a huge success and just seeing how it has empowered women is satisfying to her. “Women are coming out of the movie feeling emboldened, feeling good about themselves. Because that’s who we are. We are half the world, and we want to be represented as half the world,” she said.
