Patty Jenkin’s Wonder Woman was everything we could possibly want and more. Although the film starring Gal Gadot surpassed every expectation, there was one major element missing—the original Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter.
In a recent interview with People magazine, Carter says she had conversations about a possible appearance in Wonder Woman 2. “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,” Carter told the entertainment magazine.
The 65-year-old actress/singer has been supportive of the “pairing of Jenkins and Gadot” even before filming began. “I was so taken with the both of them, and taken with Patty from the beginning when she very first got this film…” Carter's stamp of approval was important, given that she starred as the fabulous superheroine in the popular 1970s TV series.
I loved Wonder Woman and I'm sure the sequel will be fabulous. https://t.co/lilAAdopjl

There was talk of Carter snagging a role in the first Wonder Woman film, which she says didn't work out due to “timing.” She currently stars as U.S. President Olivia Marsdin in the Supergirl television series.
The Mexican-American beauty has always been vocal about the Wonder Woman franchise and its positive influence on women.
I love to hear stories of how Wonder Woman empowers people! https://t.co/OFCoCfwphi
