Supergirl Elects Wonder Woman (aka Lynda Carter) POTUS in Season 2

Supergirl is putting a fresh (ahem) spin on the stunt-casting trope.

The now-CW drama has tapped erstwhile Wonder Woman Lynda Carter to recur in Season 2 as the President of the United States, TVLine has learned.

Last March, Supergirl EP Greg Berlanti revealed that he tried — and failed — to lasso Carter for a Season 1 guest stint, telling reporters he had a “perfect role” in mind for the TV icon, but they “couldn’t work out her schedule.” He called it the “biggest disappointment for me this entire season.” Berlanti later confirmed that the role was the “female president of the United States.”

Carter played TV’s Wonder Woman from 1975-1979. She’ll make her Supergirl debut in Season 2’s third episode, slated to air Oct. 24.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      • grys03 says:

        Tell me she has been contracted to portray the character across all four (Flash, Arrow, Supergirl & Legends).
        .
        Unlike other cross-over characters, hers would be more over-arching. Hopefully at the very least she will be mentioned in news stories etc in the other shows.

    Great news. Almost as happy as when I read Supergirl was moving to The CW and that there would be crossover episodes with the other DC shows.

    gotham should get adam west to play a role

  16. This is great, but that photo is a bit scary, it doesn’t even look like her! lol!

  17. Agent 86 says:

    I hope that Carter is playing “President Diana Prince” and that they strongly hint that she was secretly Wonder Woman fighting the good fight in WW2 before assuming her secret identity on a full-time basis to do good through politics.
