Lynda Carter Unfortunately Wont Be In The Upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ Film

DC Comics has been moving in full force in the last several years, and 2016 marks the first year and debut of their upcoming DC Extended Universe film slate with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. While fans are clamoring for these films, the character of Wonder Woman just may be one of their most significant developments. While Wonder Woman is no stranger to live-action media, 2016 marks the first ever appearance of the character in a feature film, with her own headlining film set for Summer of 2017.

While comic book films have never traditionally shied away from cameos and references to their real-life history (looking specifically at you Marvel, with your abundant Stan Lee cameos) one of the biggest questions on everyone’s minds regarding Wonder Woman would be if Lynda Carter, the actress who played Wonder Woman on TV in the late 70’s TV show, would be appearing in some minor cameo form, and it seems we finally have our answer. 

The Washington Post has definitely answered that questions with a resounding “No.”

“If it really is something that is gratuitous I won’t do it; if it’s just for me to show up in it I wouldn’t do it. But if there is something written that they think would be appropriate then most definitely I’d consider it, I would love it.”

While her remarks obviously leave the door open to the possibility if DC wanted to have her appear in a role a little greater than a typical cameo, the actress herself seems to rest the case once and for all.

Wonder Woman will first appear in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ set for release on March 25th, 2016 and set to debut her own feature film on June 23rd, 2017.
