When it comes to Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot may be the first name that comes to mind thanks to her recent movie, but it should not be the last. The heroine was first thrust into the Hollywood spotlight through Lynda Carter as the actress played Diana in her titular 1970s TV series. Carter has since become a cult icon within the DC fandom for her superhero tenure, and the actress may return to Themyscira soon by the look of it.
During a recent chat with People, Carter took a moment to talk about her Wonder Woman legacy. It was there the actress admitted she has been in talks with director Patty Jenkins to appear in Wonder Woman 2.
"We were trying to get me in the first one and we couldn't make it work with our timing," Carter revealed. "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."
Of course, Jenkins is hard at work on the script for Wonder Woman 2 at the moment. There is no official word on if the director will return for the sequel, but fans expect the visionary to make a much-wanted comeback.
As for Carter, it looks like much of her interest in returning to Wonder Woman has to do with Jenkins. The actress continued with People to gush over the director. "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."
Earlier today, fans got another reminder of how close the Wonder Woman film family is with Carter. Over on Twitter, Jenkins thanked Carter for leaving a profound legacy for the film to follow.
"Congrats to YOU too," the director wrote. "This is all built on the magical legacy you are at the core of. Great thanks you Lynda, our sister on the journey."
