Lynda Carter had to turn down a ‘Wonder Woman’ cameo

Lynda Carter, best known for playing Wonder Woman on the TV show in the ’70s, spoke to Variety this week in honor of the character’s 75th anniversary. During the interview, Carter revealed that she spoke with Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins about a role, but unfortunately the timing didn’t work out.

“I’ve spoken to Patty Jenkins. She talked to me on the phone about the character, and we were trying to see if I could do something with the movie, but it didn’t work out,” Carter revealed. “The timing was off, and I was doing other things and couldn’t get over to where they were shooting.”

When asked if she’d be opened to appear in future Wonder Woman movies, Carter seemed content with passing again and just letting Gadot do her thing.

“I might, but at this point in my life, I pretty much do new parts in things,” Carter said. “There’s someone else doing the role now, and that’s OK. They should do it. I support Gal wholeheartedly, and I wish her and Patty all the success in the world.”

Earlier this week, Marc McClure, who played Jimmy Olsen in the Christopher Reeve Superman movies, hinted that he has a cameo in Justice League.

Are these kinds of cameos something you like to see? Let me know in the comments below.
