It may not be a wonder to the world that Donald Trump is on the cover of People, as well as a wonder of him running for President. But the man himself is nowhere near a wonder as Wonder Woman, who could be the first female superhero President of the United States: a role that Lynda Carter – the original Wonder Woman – could play when and if CBS decides to renew “Supergirl” for a second season.
“I’ve lived in Washington, D.C. for more than 30 years, and the Lasso of Truth would come in so handy,” Carter said to Glamour. “I do think Wonder Woman would be all for the first female president!”
Why not? After 75 years, Wonder Woman continues to stand for all that is right and might in the world: sisterhood, equality, peace, harmony, and unity for the red-white-blue of the United States of America against the cruelty and evil of men. Gal Gadot agrees, as she spoke to People in the dawn of “Batman v. Superman”‘s opening last Easter weekend with an estimated $170 million.
“It’s so important for girls and boys to have a female, strong superhero to look up to,” the actress stated. “[Wonder Woman] is all about love and compassion and truth and justice. There is nothing not to like!”
And what is not to like about Gal playing Wonder Woman – especially one of those girls is her four-year-old daughter Alma?
“She saw me with the tiara, and she thought if I am wearing that, I [must be] a queen, so she must be a princess,” Gal continued. “We had a whole week where my husband and I had to explain that it is just make-believe.”
Still, Wonder Woman continues to made the world believe that a woman can be just as strong and heroic as any man of steel – and still maintain her femininity. After all, long before Lucy Lawless as “Xena: Warrior Princess”, there was and still is the Amazonian Wonder Woman as the original warrior princess that completes the trinity with Batman, and Superman, as they’re on the dawn of joining the Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) in becoming the world’s finest of superheroes known as the Justice League, as filming for part one is scheduled for sometime this month; it is currently set for a November 2017 release. “Wonder Woman”, which is still in production, is set for next summer with Gal alongside Chris Pine as ally/love interest Steve Trevor.
“I’ve been shooting this character for two years. I’m having an identity crisis!,” humors Gal. “But don’t tell anyone.”
We won’t, but we can tell everyone to see “Batman v. Superman” with Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in theaters now – plus the original adventures of Lynda Carter as the original “Wonder Woman” every Saturday night on Me-TV.
