She may not have appeared in the character’s first solo outing in a film but Lynda Carter, who portrayed the iconic character of Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV series, is in talks to join the film’s sequel.
During an interview Wednesday on NBC’s Today with Megyn Kelly, Carter confirmed that she has been talking to director Patty Jenkins about appearing in the “Wonder Woman” sequel. An individual with knowledge of the project corroborated her on-air statement.
“That is up to Patty Jenkins. I’ve been talking to her about it. 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 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.”
Talkies Network has confirmed with sources that like Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman 2 will be a period piece, with Princess Diana (Gal Gadot) facing off against the Soviet Union during the 1980s.
Other details, including which characters from the Wonder Woman mythos may appear have not been revealed, but it’s notable that WB still has an option for Chris Pine, who played love interest Steve Trevor. Given that Trevor sacrifices himself during the events of Wonder Woman, bringing him back might be a stretch, but then again, the world in which it takes place features living gods from Greek mythology.
The film is slated for release on Dec. 13, 2019.
