Lynda Carter Will Not Appear In Wonder Woman


According to The Washington Post, Lynda Carter will not be appearing in the upcoming film adaptation of Wonder Woman, when interviewing Pete Sanders, a representative of the DC Veteran actress. Sander went on to say  “She wishes its success. ”

Back in 2010 Lynda Carter did say she would only appear in a film version if the role was more than just a cameo and added something to the story, a choice that could certainly be respected.

The supermodel turned actress made a name for herself as the Star Spangled version of Wonder Woman in the 1975, which despite only airing for 3 seasons became a huge success. Lynda Carter returned to DC Television in season 6 of Smallville, in the episode “Progeny” as Chloe Sullivan’s long missing mother Moira Sullivan.

Of course anything can happen as the film is currently shooting and they can always cast her late in the filming progress as Chris Pine was the one who started the notion that perhaps she was when he was unable to answer the question of her involvement.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    Come on! Let the legend grace the screen! Maybe they could do some multiverse thing that Kevin Smith was talking about?

    • I don’t think it was DC’s choice. They’ve clearly used her once before on Smallville, and they are using SEVERAL of the other golden age actors from other films and shows.

      The way the publicist responded, I’m getting the impression that it was Carter that turned DC down, not vice versa. Which is indeed a shame. Here’s hoping they at least throw her name in the film as an easter egg, or show her some love in the end credits or something.

        TV is a different thing. WB likes to have cameos in the DC shows, but not in the movies. I’m pretty sure they didn’t offer her anything and they are probably almost finishing shootings by now. And this would be something they would ask her even in pre-production.

    “Chris Pine started the notion”? Careful with the wording. He was asked if Carter was going to have a cameo, he didn’t say it out of the blue and considering Pine didn’t know exactly what WB execs were doing in terms of casting, since at the time they had yet to cast Hippolyta, he honestly stated that he couldn’t confirm or deny that fact. The article made it sound like he was spreading the rumor willy-nilly.
