Great Hera! Lynda Carter teases possible Wonder Woman reboot role

We've been skeptical about the new Wonder Woman reboot ever since we learned her re-envisioned character was more Ally McBeal and less goddess-blessed warrior woman. But now we have reason to be a little more optimistic—because there could very well be an appearance by former Wonder Woman Lynda Carter.

Carter, who played Diana from 1975 to 1979, has been speaking with the new show's creator, David E. Kelley. According to Monsters and Critics, Carter said:

'I've talked to David E. Kelley, who's a brilliant writer, a number of times and we're hoping to plan something,' she said. 'But I cannot reveal.'

An obvious role would be Hippolyta, Diana's mother and queen of Themyscira. The DC Comics wiki writes that Hippolyta also took on the role of Wonder Woman first as the "new Golden Age Wonder Woman" and again as a backup Wonder Woman before she died in the "Our Worlds at War" cycle.

Carter herself would be welcome, and not just for the sake of nostalgia: She's still a defender of the defender of freedom. A few months ago, she gave actress Megan Fox a public smack-down for trashing Wonder Woman.
