WOW!
Any chance to see Lynda Carter in action is great news.

I would have made her Queen of the Amazons but I'm not writing the show.

I donno.

Carter isn;t a bad actress, but she has a tendency to play all the kinda superhero stuff with her tounge somewhere in her cheek. Wonder Woman(77) was a show that wasn't batman 66 but had it in its DNA. There was a smile to all of her perofrmances-some of which was the character but some of that she has taken

She was in Sky High...and not very good in it becuse she was a little more broad then that movie(which was a comedy, but she wasn't funny). It was a small role but all of her scenes she felt a little distractingly out of place.

Supergirl is less that. Its got a diffrent tone and pace, and feels a little more earnest.

I'm waiting for a moment of crisis in the white house and the president utters the line "I'm not Wonder Woman, you know" Only for SG to swoop in and save the day. It's a cert.

They did that exact Scene in Skyhigh- A movie i do like. Not a great scene cause she doesn't deliver it well.

Werid theroy not for episode 1, not for epiosde 2, maybe for episode 20.

What do you think the chances that Lynda Carters character is Wonder Woman?

That seems like a plot twist they would do.

Would be nice but it's not going to happen, it would confuse the general public who she Gal as WW rather than an old woman playing her.

WW doesn't age.

Lynda does.

If they cared about that they would have gotten Henry Cavil for superman(which they probabbly could have done) or stayed consistent with there Flash Actors.

Changing actors is easier to handle than casting an older actor who everyone remembers in the role when they were young. That costume doesn't hide much, which makes it far worse for playing WW.

Unless, of course, the character is supposed to age. Harrison Ford is doing fine in that regard.

This issue is just one of peculiarities of WW being immortal. You have to keep hiring young actresses.
