Lynda Carter has some thoughts about why there is no Wonder Woman movie and they show that the woman who played the character during the 1970s has better insight into her than the people who get paid to think about the character:
"I think they try to just make her a female version of a male superhero, and that’s not what she is," observes Lynda. "She is an Amazon Princess and she’s got really strong sisterhood values. She’s smart, and she just happens to be beautiful and super strong, and she has these great cool things like these bracelets and boomerang headband and non-lethal kinds of ways of dealing with people. She’s just saying, like, ‘Get a grip!’ all the time. … She slaps the hands of the bad guys."
"Maybe they need a female writer who gets it. I’ve often tried not to say that, but I think it’s the truth. It’s like, ‘Hellooooo guys, get a female that understands what that’s all about.’ You look at any society that suppresses women, and it’s violent. Look around the world. … There’s a humanity that they’re missing. There’s got to be a sweetness, a kindness, a goodness in the character. The rest takes care of itself."
I find it refreshing to not hear someone say “she’s tricky” or “we have to be careful” or “she’s complicated” isn’t it?
Carter is participating in the DC Comics “We can be Heroes” fund raiser and if you $10K you’ll get to meet her as well as tour the DC offices. You can buy that (and help raise funs for a good cause here)
Anyone got $10K they don’t need? Send it my way!
