There have been people trying to bring the DC character Wonder Woman to life, whether it be on the big screen or the small screen, for years now but most people have found it difficult to get the character right. The most memorable Wonder Woman performances have come from Lynda Carter, who played the Amazonian Princess on TV in the 1970s.
The latest actress to attempt to take on the role of Wonder Woman is Gal Gadot, who will play the character in the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with a recent image of the character in full costume being revealed. Lynda Carter has now given her views on the new costume, while admitting that Gal Gadot has her full backing.
Carter was chatting to Access Hollywood, when she said, "Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say. Maybe there's a lot more color in it than what we saw in the picture. It's almost impossible to play a superhero anyway. You can't. You just have to play a character that happens to do these amazing things. That's the only way you can do it."
She added, "The costumes all take care of themselves, but it was a little more – I'll have to wait and see. I hate to comment on something that I haven't seen and I'm very supportive of Gal Gadot. I'm very supportive of them doing Wonder Woman, putting her in any capacity. I think she needs to be out there. ... It's high time somebody took a chance and did it and so I'm really happy about that."
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on March 25, 2016 in the US and April 29, 2016 in the UK.
