Fans have responded well to Gal Gadot's version of Wonder Woman, as she was hands down the favorite in DC's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Before she graced the costume though there was another popular Wonder Woman, the talented Lynda Carter, and it seems the new team found a way to tip their hat to her iconic take on the character.

DCEU films are typically filled with homages to other DC lore, and Wonder Woman will likely be no different. In fact, Twitter user @haarleyquin spotted one homage to a particular episode of Wonder Woman where Carter wore a piercing blue dress. While the cut is a bit different, the dress Gadot is wearing in the Wonder Woman trailer at the banquet is a spitting image of it, in what seems to be a nice nod to longtime Wonder Woman fans and Carter herself, who inspired a new generation of Wonder Woman fans during her time as the character. Otherwise, it's just a major coincidence, but with the DCEU, that is rarely the case.
Granted, it won't replace a full-fledged Carter cameo, but it is still a nice nod nonetheless.
