Batman vs Superman has been attracting a lot of discussion since its announcement. How will Ben Affleck fare as Batman? Will the movie look dark enough? Will it have to change its release date?

One area that may have been overlooked, however, is Wonder Woman.

Well, Lynda Carter, who played the Amazon superhero in the iconic TV show that ran from 1975-79, has spoken out about her hopes for Wonder Woman, being played now by Israeli actress Gal Gadot.

"I’m in her corner,” Carter said. “I just hope they write well for her!"

She went on to point out what she thought was unique about the character, adding:

“I’m very hopeful she embodies the essence of Wonder Woman. It’s less about super powers and more about heart and intellect and a sense of right and wrong with a goodness in her. Often times, writers really want to take a male superhero and dress him up as a female – and that’s just not who she is.”

But is Carter right about Batman vs Superman's Wonder Woman, especially when she is being played by notoriously tough Gadot, who has served in the Israeli army as well as appearing in the action franchise The Fast and the Furious?

What do you think? Do you share Lynda Carter's opinion about what makes Wonder Woman unique, or has time moved on since the 70s and now we do not expect female superheroes to be about "heart and goodness" but something tougher? After all, you couldn't say that about Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow.
