Wonder Woman is by far the best film in the DC Extended Universe. The film was a hit both critically and commercially and that no doubt led to a sequel that is slated to be released late next year. Gal Gadot was superb in her portrayal of the popular DC character but it’s hard to forget Lynda Carter’s iconic portrayal of Wonder Woman in the 1970s. It would have been nice to feature a cameo of Carter in the film but alas, that didn’t happen. There is a chance we might see that in the sequel as Carter has been sighted nearby one of Wonder Woman 2‘s filming locations.
In case some are unaware, Lynda Carter played the titular hero in the television series Wonder Woman which ran on ABC from 1975 to 1976 before moving to CBS, running from 1977 to 1979. Carter’s portrayal was the first live-action incarnation of the character and she holds a special place in pop culture because of it. It’s generally common for films to feature cameos from their television counterparts such as in Starsky and Hutch but it wasn’t the case for Wonder Woman. In April however, Carter revealed to NBC Today that she has been in talks with director Patty Jenkins to make an appearance in the sequel.
Heroic Hollywood reports that Carter was spotted in Washington D.C., one of the filming locations for Wonder Woman 2. Carter was no doubt there as a tweet from NHL’s Washington Capitals showed her attending the team’s Stanley Cup playoff against the Las Vegas Golden Knights. This doesn’t necessarily mean that she met up with Gadot and ran some lines as she was clearly at the game. Plus, Carter does reside near Washington in Potomac, Maryland so it could just mean nothing after all.
This does however, make it a little easier to include her as she lives relatively close by and Jenkins could just call her in and get her to just say ‘hi’ in the film as a mere cameo is enough to be honest. Having Carter to make an appearance would allow us to see two generations of the character in one screen. Some general movie goers may shrug it off, but for fans of the DC superhero and some old-timers, it would be a treat.
