For fans of Wonder Woman, seeing the DC Comics icon in her own solo film was long overdue. But while many loved actress Gal Gadot in the title role, that didn’t stop them from hoping for a big-screen cameo by another Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter.
The actress, who played the superheroine on television from 1975 to 1975, is Wonder Woman for generations of fans, so her absence from the character’s live-action film was disappointing to some. However, it wasn’t for lack of trying.
Responding to a fan question on Twitter, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins said that although the stars didn’t align for a cameo by Carter in the hit film, she isn’t about to give up.
Oh we tried, tried, tried. And we won't stop trying. https://t.co/Zvla4SVfdM

Although she isn’t in the movie, Carter was on hand at Wonder Woman‘s premiere to lend her support to Jenkins and Gadot.
Fans can catch Carter on The CW’s Supergirl in her occasional guest role as U.S. President Olivia Marsden.
In theaters nationwide, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Ares, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy.
