It won't be strange for her...
Lynda Carter, best known for the iconic TV portrayal of Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV show, recently spoke with Metro about Gal Gadot being cast in the role for Batman vs. Superman. Check out the highlights:
On Wonder Woman's appeal: "There's an identification factor. She's not your average superhero. It's not so much about her super powers as it is about her ethic. I always thought of her as a figure who stands for what's right. We all know what's wrong with the world today, so maybe we need her right now."
On if it will be strange seeing someone else play her: "I don't think so. It was a long time ago. I care more about the character continuing than holding on to my piece of it. I hope she has fun with it."
On Wonder Woman being in Batman vs. Superman: "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."
