Supergirl Meets Wonder Woman: A First Look at 'President' Lynda Carter

Sans satin tights but still fighting for your rights (as well as the old red, white and blue), Lynda Carter is looking rather wondrous as Supergirl‘s POTUS, in a behind-the-scenes photo shared by series star Melissa Benoist.

As reported in June, TV’s erstwhile Diana Prince will recur during Season 2 of The CW’s superhero import as the President of the United States.

Met a wonderful woman today @reallyndacarter

Supergirl has made a number of significant casting moves as it transitions from CBS to The CW, most notably tapping Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Hoechlin to guest-star as Superman. Other key hires include Katie McGrath (Merlin) as Lena Luthor; Cougar Town alum Ian Gomez as Kara’s new supervisor, Snapper Carr; Floriana Lima (The Family) as Science Crimes captain Maggie Sawyer; and Containment‘s Chris Wood as Mon-El (aka the mystery pod’s passenger).

Supergirl Season 2 premieres Monday, Oct. 10 at 8/7c on The CW.

    The casting of Lynda Carter is SUPER great. She was so HOT during her days as TV’s Wonder Woman.

  6. Steve F. says:

    AWESOME (even though I now have the classic WW theme in my head) – can’t wait to see Lynda Carter in Season 2!

  7. Phun says:


  8. You know if you don’t play the old Wonder Woman theme and maybe show some clips from her series from back in the 70s that would be so cool to show that this really is a multiverse series

    • Mary says:

      Hmm. Maybe they can work that in when crossing between Earths like they did with John Wesley Shipp’s Flash last season. That would be cool.

  11. SuperS says:

    Is she the president on the prime earth as well? Did we ever see the president on Arrow/Flash?

  12. Robin says:

    Lynda Carter does not age!

  13. Jon says:

    Wonder if Lynda Carter will be involved in the proposed musical episode then. Because she’s a great singer as well.

  14. Crap, I just realized, the Wonder Woman TV series is cannon to the Supergirl universe now

  15. JEREMY says:

    i see the comment I left earlier has been deleted for what I’m sure was considered
    an Un-PC statement.

    I will not apologize for what I said earlier.

    This season has the makings of a great show if they just avoid what I mentioned previously.

  16. orionsaint says:

    Now that’s my kind of President!

  17. Richard says:

    So awesome! Love it, great to see Lynda Carter back on TV, hopefully the make her a significant part of the show. Would be a waste not to!

  18. John says:

    Lynda Carter is a very under rated actress.
    I think she will be dynamite !

  19. Michael Starks says:

    God, how I love that woman. I have never heard a bad word spoken about her personality and she is still SO beautiful.

  20. Joey Padron says:

    Great photo of them together. Excited for season 2 to start this fall!

  21. Luis says:

    So much love!!!!!

  22. Ted says:

    Is the show going to be B&W, too? Just wondering.

  23. SeanX says:
