Lynda Carter Shares Her Thoughts On Gal Gadot's WONDER WOMAN Costume

Lynda Carter played Wonder Woman during the 1970s and her name is still synonymous with the Amazonian Princess. Of course, Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot will star as the character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Carter shares her thoughts here about the recent costume reveal...

By Josh Wilding - 8/30/2014

Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder released a first look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman during this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and the costume for the fan favourite character was met with a mostly very positive response. Faithful to the comic books, but with a few key alterations which make it look like it would exist in our world, the suit should stand nicely alongside Ben Affleck's Batman and Henry Cavill's Superman come 2016. So, what does original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter think? "Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say," she told Access Hollywood in a recent interview. "Maybe there's a lot more color in it than what we saw in the picture. It's almost impossible to play a superhero anyway. You can't. You just have to play a character that happens to do these amazing things. That's the only way you can do it. And the costumes all take care of themselves, but it was a little more – I'll have to wait and see. I hate to comment on something that I haven't seen and I'm very supportive of Gal Gadot. I'm very supportive of them doing Wonder Woman, putting her in any capacity. I think she needs to be out there. ... It's high time somebody took a chance and did it and so I'm really happy about that." Would you agree that there needs to be more colour in the costume? It does appear like there could be, though it's hard to tell due to the filter the photo was taken with. We'll have to wait and see!

Interesting comments. I like the costume but I want to see how it looks in normal daylight.
MrNiklander - 8/30/2014, 3:41 AM
My thoughts precisely for all we know Wonder Woman's costume could be red white and blue but Snyder just teased it because movie comes out in 2016
vinomonster - 8/30/2014, 3:43 AM
Remove the red filter then colors will eventually come up. I'm expecting a different tone on the costume in the movie and as of the moment we havent seen her in action so its too early to tell.
mbembet - 8/30/2014, 3:46 AM
gadot is the greatest actress of all time and she's perfect as man of shit whore
CherryBomb - 8/30/2014, 3:49 AM
Yeah, the colours are clearly the traditional ones BUT they're just more toned down.
I'm sure that'll be altered in the future like what they've done with Superman's new costume.

I love the costume, hate the idiotic Xena comparisons.
It looks bad-ass.

Linda Carter was hot as Wonder Woman but damn those shorts are bad. You can even see the camel toe.

Disney Princess alert.

Gadot sucks. So she'll fit in perfectly in Snyder's debacle.
LMB10 - 8/30/2014, 3:59 AM
Gadot is a horrible actress from what I can tell

But hell, she could surprise us

Danbojohnj - 8/30/2014, 4:08 AM

[frick] you Sid!

Comments are reason, comments are life!

I actually think the costume looks great but at the same time i do agree with her.

"I saw Gal Gadot's @$!#& costume and said... This is a Job for Wonder Woman!"

@AxeEffect

Life sucks amd your reasoning is aweful!
Thelastdalek - 8/30/2014, 4:17 AM
Why people still complaining about the casting. Zack might be a hit and miss director in most ways but he's been consistently great at casting his films.

That alone should let us know that the Affleck and Gadot will do fine.
Scarilian - 8/30/2014, 4:21 AM
As much as I wish it had more colour, I can understand why it is so plain and dull. Its meant to be more along the lines of armour as this is the first time Wonder Woman will be appearing.

When she appears in Justice League she can have more colour added to her suit, however in Man Of Steel 2/Batman Vs Superman/Justice League Part 1 - it makes sense that it looks this way.
NeoBaggins - 8/30/2014, 4:23 AM
You can use the PaintNet program to bring out the color. I'm not at home and cant remember the setting but its simple. It takes the brown shit off the picture and you can clearly see that the top and skirt are red and blue.

Life is [frick]ing amazing! I don't need no reason, it is me!
Gary8264 - 8/30/2014, 4:30 AM
@minato808, They actually redesigned the shorts before the series was over, and gave it more of a bikini cut.
SuperCat - 8/30/2014, 4:32 AM
Love the new costume but Linda Carter's classic camel toe for the win.
TheSoulEater - 8/30/2014, 4:33 AM
I just want Wonder Woman to look like she even lifts!!!

Is that to much to ask? Meat on her bones?
oNosferatuZodd - 8/30/2014, 4:37 AM

Don't worry Lynda Carter, we have Black Widow, Gamora, Sif and soon Scarlet Witch and Captain Marvel to do female heroes justice.

DC fails again letting down the legendary Lynda Carter.
batmanvsuperman - 8/30/2014, 4:38 AM
I like it and I think it is more Color in it
batmanvsuperman - 8/30/2014, 4:43 AM
Don't hate yet you hating ass ppl..we haven't seen her in that many movies to see if she has real talent now watch if she kills the role every on can eat shit big bag of shit! Lol
staypuffed - 8/30/2014, 4:46 AM
Lynda looks great in that shot!
I think Gal will be good, and the costume rocks.
loki668 - 8/30/2014, 4:47 AM
I'm hoping that she nails this role, simply to see what it looks like when this many people are forced to eat their words.
loki668 - 8/30/2014, 4:47 AM
I have faith in this film. I believe that faith will be rewarded!!
TheDarkKryptonian - 8/30/2014, 4:51 AM
@CherryBomb That gif is a perfect representation of how I feel every time I see that user comment.

That being said, I cannot believe that people can not see that there is a bronze filter over that picture. Gal's skin is not that dark. Her freaking legs are grey in the picture. Even her sword is a dull color. There are too many pieces of evidence in that picture for people to still think there is no color.
MantiniuMan - 8/30/2014, 4:58 AM
If we are to believe the pic of WW is the colour she will appear in the film...

Does that mean BATMAN will be black and white as Batfleck appeared in a monochrome picture...

Red white and blue never made sense in a WW costume. What seems like we are getting is red, blue, and gold which I am very pleased with.
FordEl - 8/30/2014, 5:05 AM
@TheSoulEater

Theres a difference than when she started months ago and is still bulking up as we speak.
CherryBomb - 8/30/2014, 5:05 AM
@TheDarkKryptonian

Preach!
FordEl - 8/30/2014, 5:06 AM
However i hope Gal's hair is better than that pick in the movie. From the set pics, with her in the blue dress, it looked better than that shot above in her costume.
FordEl - 8/30/2014, 5:09 AM
@oNosferatuZodd

And yet all of them combined don't even compare to WW. Lol, and you have yet to see the film.
Sentry - 8/30/2014, 5:16 AM
I have heard that that muted costume will only been seen once in BvS, in a flashback sequence, and that WW will don an updated outfit for the Justice League movie, something along the lines of the Jim Lee WW outfit. But who knows at this point...
