Lynda Carter hopes new Wonder Woman 'kicks butt'

It didn't take the golden lasso of truth to get Lynda Carter to share her thoughts on Adrianne Palicki being cast as the new Wonder Woman.

In an interview with the Baltimore Sun, Carter — who played the Amazing Amazon in the popular '70s TV series — sounds off about David E. Kelley's upcoming NBC reboot.

"I know she is going to be really nervous about it, just because you would be," Carter says of Palicki, adding, "I would never offer her any advice. Nor would she probably want any. If she wants to talk to me, that would be a whole different thing. But I would never offer, 'Now let me tell you how to do this.' She's an actress and she's a good actress and she's beautiful, and I hope she kicks butt."

Kelley's show will center on the superhero's alter-ego Diana Prince, who juggles being a crime fighter, corporate executive and modern woman.

"I spoke with David yesterday, and he's really, really excited about it," says Carter. "I think the story needs to be retold. It needs to have a fresh look at it. It affected a lot of people. I think it's time, I think it's important to have it out there again."

When asked whether she'll appear on the series, Carter deflected the question as if wearing Wonder Woman's impenetrable bracelets: "That is something that I … even if I were, I couldn't tell you."

    Did anyone catch the sentence in this that said "it will center on the superheros alter ego Dianna Prince"? ummm....correct me if I am wrong but the show is called Wonder Woman...not Dianna Prince....the more details of this show that come out the more sure I am its going to be a real Hindenburg.

      Agreed. The success of any comic transistion is to retain the original comic fans. Departing too far from the original idea will llose the producers say 30% watchers right off the bat. It will make it a teen age girl show. Although Linda Carter never quite got that stutter step coming out of the spin quite right, I watched the show and wasted a lot of Kleenex on her over my youth. She will ALWAYS be wonder woman to me LOL!

    From what I've heard they are trying to turn Wonder Woman into a gritty night time vigilante a la Batman.

    I give this show a season to self destruct, and I'm being optimistic. The Wonder Woman was never about gritty, she's more like Superman, a shining bright example of the best a hero can be. This reimagining goes so against the original material that I doubt people will buy it.

  10. Wonder Woman vs Coffee over the top rope cage match

    Wonder Woman/Linda would stomp the hell outa Coffee/Pam! Then Linda would smear Pams face in her pu-tang...which I understand Ms Grier would love. Another typical black community gaybyrd.

    Plus if they wanted a real wonder woman they would choose one of us sisters ! Pam Grier is the real wonder woman.

      You could always have their pasty white vampire boyfriends that they drool over like in Twilight. A fair exchange isn't it?

    Lynda Carter looks great! I'd watch the show if she does appear on it. I may or may not watch it otherwise. I hoped for Megan Fox to be on it.
