As Wonder Woman continues to stretch its legs at the box office, the original Diana has revealed she almost showed up in the DC blockbuster — and she remains game for a role in the sequel.

Lynda Carter, who played Wonder Woman in the 1970s television series, said she was actually approached by Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins for a cameo, but wasn’t able to work it out with her schedule. With the studio hot to get a sequel off the ground, Carter said she's open to playing a part when production ramps up on Part 2. Even without a direct nod to Carter, Jenkins’ film was pretty great. But, it’d still be a true geek-out moment to see Carter and the modern-day Wonder Woman Gal Gadot on-screen together.

Here’s an excerpt from Carter’s comments:

"(Jenkins) asked me to do a cameo in this. She was in England, and I was doing my concerts. At that time we couldn't get our timing together. So, this next time, if she writes me a decent part, I might do it."

Carter’s willingness to tackle a role in the big screen Wonder Woman isn’t much of a surprise, considering she’s already been cameoing in The CW’s Supergirl the past year as the president of the United States — and doing an awesome job with it.
