Late last month Warner Bros. Pictures and Zack Snyder released a first look at Gal Gadot in her Wonder Woman costume during the "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.
So far the costume has been met with a mostly positive response, but today comes word from one person whose opinion carries more weight than others - the original Wonder Woman herself actress Lynda Carter. Carter, who played the DC heroine during the 1970s on TV, tells Access Hollywood:
"Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say. Maybe there's a lot more color in it than what we saw in the picture. It's almost impossible to play a superhero anyway. You can't. You just have to play a character that happens to do these amazing things. That's the only way you can do it. And the costumes all take care of themselves, »

For a multitude of reasons any fan is willing to list off, Wonder Woman has been an incredibly hard character to bring to the big screen. While other actresses have played the DC Comics superhero over the years, Lynda Carter is best known as the originator of the role, appearing on the 1975 series for three seasons. Access Hollywood recently caught up with the actress, and got her take on the new Wonder Woman costume being worn by Gal Gadot in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
"Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say. Maybe there's a lot more color in it than what we saw in the picture."
Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder released a first look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman during this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and the costume for the fan favourite character was met with a mostly very positive response. Faithful to the comic books, but with a few key alterations which make it look like it would exist in our world, the suit should stand nicely alongside Ben Affleck's Batman and Henry Cavill's Superman come 2016. So, what does original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter think? "Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say," she told Access Hollywood in a recent interview. "Maybe there's a lot more color in it than what we saw in the picture. It's almost impossible to play a superhero anyway. You can't. You just have to play a character that happens to do these amazing things. That's the only way you can do it. »
It’s odd that even after all these years of superhero blockbusters, a hero or heroine’s costume can still be the biggest symbol of what direction a film will take – or the exact opposite. An audience’s first look at a superhero suit is always certain to draw mixed reactions, but in the case of Wonder Woman, casual and diehard fans alike took their time to process Gal Gadot’s new outfit when it was revealed at Comic Con 2014.
Gadot’s casting may have been deemed ‘controversial,’ but the costume itself received a surprisingly warm reception. But the lack of the classic red, white and blue color scheme isn’t lost on former Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter. ...

Welcome To Issue 60!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation to the detriment of no one. It usually has spoilers. Also it has jokes, sorry Warner Bros.
This Week: Donald Glover finally gets to be Spider-Man, then I don’t know who at DC to talk to about setting “no joke” policies. But I want to make two things clear right from the start: I want the Dcu to succeed because I want to see these movies, and I’m easily excitable when it comes to these things.
Thanks for being so patient while I uprooted my Brooklyn life of 11 years and hauled all my crap back to Colorado last week. There’s something about paying to ship all your Spider-Man toys to another state while you’re throwing away baby pictures of yourself »
Lynda Carter will be lassoing contestants as a guest judge on the Game Show Network's new body painting competition, “Skin Wars.” The show is hosted by actress Rebecca Romjin, and the judging panel includes transformation star Ru Paul along with body artists Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina. During our lighthearted telephone interview, I asked the iconic Wonder Woman actress the obvious question: how did she get involved with a body-painting show? “I get asked quite often to do these things and I say no to about 95 percent of them. I had heard of ‘Skin Wars’ and the amazing work these. »

Sneak Peek new footage of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" co-star Gal Gadot aka 'Wonder Woman' taking the "Als Ice Bucket Challenge", for the charity dedicated to finding a cure to Als ('Lou Gehrig’s Disease'):

Yesterday after Gal Gadot completed her Als Ice Bucket Challenge, she nominated Lynda Carter, the actress who played Princess Diana in 1975 hit TV show Wonder Woman. As a response to the challenge, Lynda posted this on her Facebook page: "I am on my way to the famous Bethesda Softworks video game company (creators of Fallout and Skyrim..and many more blockbuster games) to do my Als Ice Bucket Challenge. They have graciously agreed to throw a bucket of ice water on my head. Gal Gadot: don't forget... we are now sisters in this...and don't you just adore Ben Affleck? Ben Affleck: I knew you when we did "Daddy"..you were a force... now you are a superhero force!" Sadly she only uploaded this picture instead of a video and so it is not sure if she nominated anyone. Not to forget Gal also mentioned director Zack Snyder in her nomination, »
Earlier today, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" Wonder Woman star, Gal Gadot shot this new, short video clip (below) to reveal that she partook in the Ice Bucket Challenge. Apparently, it's a dare that's getting sent around that dares friends to pour a bucket of ice water over their head within the next 24 hours, or donate money towards fighting Als, which is also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. After Gal did it, she challenged Batman v Superman director ,Zack Snyder, and the original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter. Check it out, below. As for the Batman v Superman movie, it stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg ,and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter ,and Scoot McNairy. »

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!
Last week, I asked a simple question: Is the DC Cinematic Universe–the Warner Bros. back-of-the-napkin plan to launch an all-out assault on Marvel Studios by unleashing a double-digit boatload of superhero movies between now and 2020–actually a thing? Will the Man of Steel-verse actually transform into a cape-ier alternative to the Avengers-verse? Or is this a Valiant-Comics-in-1992 thing–a situation where all the elaborate and ambitious universe-building plans will ultimately dead-end »

While we've heard plenty of rumored story details in regards to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, no solid plot information has been confirmed other than that Bruce Wayne will somehow interact with the alien Kal-El, and at some point Wonder Woman will be brought into the mix. A new unconfirmed report claims that General Zod's (Michael Shannon) body will actually serve as a key plot device used to set up one particular character's motivation.

According to this mysterious extra, who was on set for a total of ten days, the movie's ending has already been shot. One of the important scenes in this climax finds Batman (Ben Affleck) sneaking into LexCorp to steal some Kryptonite. »
With this past weekend seeing another movie added to the Marvel films family in Guardians of the Galaxy, Warner Bros. is setting their sights on a similarly structured future with the unveiling of nine release dates for untitled DC films through 2020, while also revealing that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be moved from its May 6th, 2016 slot to an earlier spot on that year’s calendar.
Collider reports that Warner Bros. has moved the release of DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from May 6th, 2016 to March 25th, 2016, taking the film out of summer blockbuster territory. Some speculate that Warner Bros. pushed forward the Batman/Superman mash-up to avoid competing directly with Marvel’s Captain America 3, which is expected to hit theaters in May of 2016. Warner Bros.’ Gerard Butler-starring Geostorm has been removed from the March 25th, 2016 slot and will receive a new debut date. »

DC have been criticised for failing to bring Wonder Woman a solo film, despite it being in development ever since Lynda Carter pulled her star spangled briefs on. Marvel have been vaunted for bringing out a movie with a talking tree and raccoon before DC even managed a superhero film with a female lead, but they’ve failed at that task too – seriously, where is our Black Widow film? Or do we just need to close our eyes and pretend that’s what Lucy is? Looks like it’s up to Sony’s to bat for women superheroes with another one of those Amazing Spider-Man spin-off flicks they’re so fond of announcing.
We’ve already got a Sinister Six film, directed by Drew Goddard, slated for release in 2016 (although we’re still at a loss as to how that’s gonna work without Spidey, unless it’s »

After another longer-than-expected absence, I’m back, dear readers, and I’m hoping to get this column back on something approaching a regular schedule. More importantly, this week finally sees the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, which I hope to be watching by the time you’re reading these words. But it’s never too early to look ahead to what’s coming out next year, and this Trailer Trashin’ column examines our first look at a film that’s definitely on my radar for next year: Mad Max: Fury Road.
Premise: An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed and fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world are two rebels on the run, who just might be able to restore order. One is “Mad” Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), a »
