Lynda Carter, star of the 1975-1979 Wonder Woman television series, is finally getting her long-overdue star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. If anything, it’s a wonder that this majorly-influential woman didn’t have one already!
Variety reports that, hot off the heels of Mark Hamill getting his star added to the walkway, Carter will soon have a ceremony of her own at the beginning of next month (though any special guests that may attend the ceremony have yet to be announced):

Aside from Wonder Woman, Carter’s career has explored a variety of other avenues — one of her most notable film roles was Disney’s Sky High, which featured her as the principal for a school teaching kids who had superpowers (which, naturally, featured a throwaway gag referencing Wonder Woman). Carter also prominent in her television roles following Wonder Woman, as she had leading roles in Partners in Crime and Hawkeye, and she had guest roles on The Muppet Show, Law & Order, and Smallville. She has also provided her voice to several characters in The Elder Scrolls series of video games, including Azura and Gormlaith Golden-Hilt. Currently, Carter guest-stars on episodes of Supergirl as supporting character President Olivia Marsdin.
5 Superheroes That Deserve Their Own Video Game Universe
World building and universe building are not new. These writing techniques have been around for centuries, long before we even started writing our stories down. I always considered Beowulf to be the precursor to superheroes and comics. However, due to the overwhelming success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the CW DC Universe (or Arrowverse), it seems that the universal world building that has been in comics for three-quarters of a century has finally become a major storytelling point in both the film and TV worlds of superheroes.
Between Rocksteady’s Arkham Trilogy (Batman: Arkham Origins was developed by WB Games Montreal), Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Insomniac Games establishing that their Spider-Man game will be the anchor point for a new Spider-Man universe, and the announcement from earlier this year of a multi-year, multi-game deal between Marvel and developer/publisher Square Enix it seems like the video games will be the next place where sprawling superhero stories will be told.
