DC's recent premiere of their anticipated Wonder Woman film brought out not one but two who have worn the red, blue, and gold.
Gal Gadot was on hand (hurt back and all) at the premiere, and was joined by fellow Wonder Woman Lynda Carter, who played the character in the hit television series. ET caught up with Carter on the red carpet and asked how she's been getting along with Gadot.
"Yes I am the bearer of the torch and now I'm passing it forward. I couldn't wait to meet Gal and you know this is, Wonder Woman belongs to you. She's there (points to her heart), she's here, and I understand that. We have become friends and I am just thrilled to be here"
Gadot happens to feel the same way, and couldn't be more thrilled for the experience.
"I just love her very much, and I just think she is just such a special woman. It's always great to see her, especially tonight where she is going to see the movie for the first time and my heart goes like (taps chest)".
When asked if she was ready to represent the hero like Carter has all these years, Gadot said "I'm there. I'm already there. Definitely. Lynda already thanked me for sharing the burden with her (laughs), and I'm up to it."
When asked how she was feeling, Carter said: "I can't breathe" (laughs). She also had a message for all the Wonder Woman out there.
"I'm so excited and I really want, I really want you all to embrace this. This is just another way to look at Wonder Woman, so here we go."
Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins and is written by Allan Heinberg, Geoff Johns, and Zack Snyder. The film stars Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Robin Wright (General Antiope), Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis (Etta Candy), Danny Huston, Ewen Bremmer, Doutzen Kroes, Samantha Jo (Euboea), Florence Kasumba (Senator Acantha), Said Taghmaoui, Eleanor Matsuura (Epione), Emily Carey (Young Diana), and Lisa Loven Kongsli (Menalippe).
