Carter (can you believe she's now 65?!) played the superhero on TV from 1975-1979. She posted on Facebook before the premiere, saying, "So excited to be attending the premiere of the new 'Wonder Woman' movie, directed by my friend, Patty Jenkins, and starring the beautiful Gal Gadot. I can't wait to see that beloved character on the big screen where she belongs. I know it will be great!"
After the movie, she gushed, "What a wonderful movie!! Gal Gadot is fabulous as Wonder Woman. Bravo Patty Jenkins. I had so much fun at the premiere. In theaters, June 2!!"
Carter told MSN, "Yes, I am the bearer of the torch and I'm passing it forward!" She added (for the benefit of any old-school fans who are dubious about the reboot), "I really want you all to embrace this. It's just another way to look at Wonder Woman."
Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that's raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny. Read More
