TV Wonder Woman in Talks for Movie Sequel
If anyone is tied to Wonder Woman even more than Gal Gadot, it is Linda Carter. Carter played the Amazon princess in the 1970s TV series. Through that, she became a pop culture and feminist icon. She also is one of DC’s major ambassadors for the character. However, everyone was disappointed she didn’t even appear in the Wonder Woman film that debuted last year. Carter did not even have a cameo in the film, starring Gal Gadot as Diana. Instead, Carter guest starred on Supergirl as the President of the United States. However, that might change soon.
On Monday, Carter announced on Today she is in talks to appear in the sequel to Wonder Woman. “That is up to Patty Jenkins. She’s given me some hints about it and I guess it’s up to Warner Bros. if they want to spend the money. [It] is up to Patty, and if it works in an organic way it’ll be great fun and it’ll be wonderful to do,” Carter stated in an interview with Megyn Kelly.
Sequel Gearing Up For Filming
Wonder Woman 2 is set to start production this summer. Kristin Wiig has been announced to be the movie’s villain, Cheetah. Chilean actor Pedro Pascal has also been cast in an unannounced role. The biggest casting news, however, is that Chris Pine will be returning as Steve Trevor. Given that Steve died in the first film, it is unknown how this will work. Rumors range from flashbacks to, like in the TV series, being a descendant of the original.
The plot of the film is also shrouded in secrecy. Most rumors have the picture being another period piece, this time set in the 1980s. However, this would contradict the idea that Wonder Woman hid away from the world after World War I.
Wonder Woman 2 is set to debut on December 13, 2019. Stay tuned to Word of the Nerd for more news.
