This summer continues to prove that the world does deserve Wonder Woman. Come 2018, Lynda Carter is about to get her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Carter brought “Wonder Woman” to life on television over forty years ago: putting all her might on the side of right for the good old red-white-blue of U.S.A. against the forces of evil. The series, which aired on ABC and CBS from 1975 to 1979, follows the adventures of the titular superhero: fighting the Nazis throughout World War II, and global terrorism, corporate greed and corruption as a government agent in the 20th century. Still popular thanks to reruns in syndication (the show airs on Me-TV every Saturday night), Carter continues to define “Wonder Woman” to a new generation of girl power.
Created by William Moulton Marston in 1941, Wonder Woman comes to fulfill her sacred duty: to defend the world of man in the name of all that is good as an united ambassador who believes in love, peace, equality, compassion, truth, sisterhood, and justice.
Now that sacred duty belongs to Gal Gadot as Princess Diana of Themyscira, who leaves Paradise Island to go to London: helping American spy Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) fight ‘the war to end all wars’ against the Germans in World War I. Directed by Patty Jenkins, “Wonder Woman” lassoed the top spot at the box office for two weeks, and she continues to wield her power among the world: strong-arming and out-performing “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice”, “Suicide Squad”, and “Man of Steel” in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) with a domestic gross of over $346 million dollars. “Wonder Woman” has already surpassed “Man of Steel”internationally with a gross of over $700 million dollars.
Wonder Woman returns to the big screen this fall as a founding member of the “Justice League” (JL).
