Carter, who played Wonder Woman in the popular '70s show, also urges fans to be open-minded when the new NBC series airs.
"You know, I'm very sensitive to the fact that she will be compared," Carter tells E! Online of Palicki. "There's no getting around it. It is what it is. I would hope that people would cut her some slack. I'm sure there will be people who say she looks better than me and like her better than me — and that's also fine. I want this story to be told again. I'm really excited. I can't wait to see it."
Though Carter has hinted that she may appear in the new "Wonder Woman" — which also stars Elizabeth Hurley as the crime fighter's nemesis, Veronica Cale, and Cary Elwes as the CEO of the corporation owned by Wonder Woman's alter ego, Diana Themyscira — she now says there are no plans for her to participate.
"I talked to David about doing something in the pilot but with my new CD, 'Crazy Little Things,' coming out in April and touring for the album, we couldn't coordinate our schedules," she tells the Hollywood Reporter. "But you never know what will happen in the future. Stay tuned!"
