Lynda Carter is open to making a guest appearance in any future Wonder Woman movies.
The 65-year-old actress, who famously portrayed the Amazonian warrior princess in a 1970s TV series of the same name, didn’t make an appearance in the smash hit movie, starring Gal Gadot in the lead role, earlier this year.
However, Carter insists it was just a matter of the timing not working out, and she is definitely keen on trying to work something out with director Patty Jenkins so she can show her face in the movie follow-up.
“We were trying to get me in the first one and we couldn’t make it work with our timing,” Carter told People. “It really is up to Patty, and if it works in an organic way it’ll be great fun and it’ll be wonderful to do.
“Am I open to it? Absolutely. I adore Patty Jenkins, and it’ll be wonderful to do. But we’ll just see how that goes.”
Carter's comments come after Jenkins praised the actress for her support in making the big-screen version.
“She has been like a sister to us on this journey,” the filmmaker told The Associated Press. “I wanted her to know: ‘Lynda, we’re not the next generation doing their version of Wonder Woman. We were born of your Wonder Woman and it is a line, it’s a chain. We are a continuation of a vision and a dream of a great character.’”
A Wonder Woman sequel has yet to be officially confirmed by executives at Warner Bros. or DC Comics, but Jenkins recently appeared to confirm news of a follow-up at a press conference.
However, she later set the record straight on Twitter, sharing a link to a story about her “confirmation” and writing: “Hey All. Thanks for the excitement but that wasn’t a confirmation. Just talking about ideas and hopes. But still excited and hopeful ;) #WW2.”
