According to ComicBook.com on Dec. 25, with Ben Affleck playing the role of Batman in Zack Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman" film, opinions from previous actors are becoming prevalent. Actor Lynda Carter was asked to give her thoughts about Gal Gadot taking on the new role as Wonder Woman.
Carter was originally the first actress to play the role in the 70s TV show and her opinion of finding it unusual for someone else to be taking on the role is of no real consequence to her.
"I care more about the character continuing than holding on to my piece of it. I hope she has fun with it".
Also, Carter didn't feel that Wonder Woman would even be slighted by not getting her own film as opposed to appearing in the "Superman" sequel.
“And maybe that’s better. She won’t have to carry the whole film. It takes the pressure off. I wish her well. I’m just glad she’s going to be out there again. Maybe she’ll get her own show again".
There was a question in regards with the character making a comeback that Carter would be bombarded with questions from reporters. Carter has no anxiety towards this confrontation, in fact, she would embrace it.
“I realized a long time ago that people like to talk about it and I embrace the character – I always have,” said Carter. "It’s a long time ago but when people come up to talk to me about it, it’s a way of connecting with them. It’s like going to see a concert and seeing someone play their greatest hits – if they didn’t play their greatest hits, it would be the same as if I never talked about her. She’s a great character".
Galdot at first received public criticism for being chosen due to the fact she would not be the type of actress that could carry such an iconic role as well as taking on the weight of a future "Justice League" film. According to some, her petite size would not be representative of the Amazonian, but Galdot has been known for her extreme workout regimen and had been a member of the Israeli military.
So with such credentials under her belt there could be some hope that Galdot could live up to the characters standards.
Zack Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman" opens in theaters July 17, 2015.
