We all have our sacred cows. For statuesque beauty Lynda Carter — and, we might add, millions of fan boys around the world — it’s Wonder Woman, the character she played so memorably on television for three seasons in the 1970s. It may have been many years since she donned the red, white and blue costume, but she still feels defensive about the Amazon superheroine and any who may dare to mock her. So when she was asked about the possibility of Megan Fox playing Wonder Woman in a new TV series under development, she pointed out that the young actress “actually kind of trashed Wonder Woman” last year. “She said she thought it was dumb, like ‘what’s the big whoop making people tell the truth.’ I like her, I just thought she shouldn’t trash Wonder Woman.”Carter, 59, made her comments while appearing on TV program ‘Fox and Friends’ to promote her new album. She has a good memory; Fox expressed her disdain for Wonder Woman in these words:“Wonder Woman is a lame superhero. She flies around in her invisible jet and her weaponry is a lasso that makes you tell the truth. I just don’t get it. Somebody has a big challenge on their hands whoever takes that role but I don’t want to do it.”
Fox’s career is going nowhere in particular right now, especially after the box office disaster of ‘Jonah Hex’ this summer, but at least Carter didn’t jump on the bandwagon and trash her personally. Carter has every right to be defending Wonder Woman, of course, since the series made her a megastar in the late 70s and is still the highlight of her acting career.
