I'm sorry, I must disagree. Lynda Carter is cuter. I think Kim is cute, but her face is too pointy to be WW.

I've often wondered who should play WW in a new film. There will never be another Lynda Carter. I've not been sure who I thought would do a good job. I could probably see Kim doing it.

I wonder what Lyle Waggoner's thinking?

Actually, I have a pretty good idea...

Arkonbey-
Lynda Carter is indeed cuter by a long shot! I just thought all the Kim pictures were pretty funny and cute to look at. Any excuse to put up pictures of women dressed as Wonder Woman...as long as she's not Megan Fox...

Keith-
I would love to see a WW movie but even odds for whether it would be good or bad...I always like Chrisma Carpenter as Wonder Woman but maybe she's getting a bit too old now...how old is she again? I'll have to look that up.

Captain-
I heard that Lyle and Lynda did not get along well at all. That Lynda was a bit of a diva actually...but darn she's cute!

Great post. I like Kim as WW. I always think of the Amazon Princess as being Mediterranean. Great find of the pic with the big sunglasses.

As for the movie... It would certainly get loused up. The TV show was campy, and went from WWII to modern time without blinking, IIRC. DC has never been very serious about Wonder Woman. Seems to me that only "The Justice League" cartoon gives her any respect.

For an actress? Geez. I like to think of WW being a bit of a tank, so someone built like Torrie Wilson, or a Rocky III era Brigitte Nielsen... There's not really anyone out there famous who fits that type body.

Darius-
Yes she should look mediterranean and substantial. Brigette was just lovely back in her heyday, the pictures she took for Playboy were some of my favorites ever.

And you are right they just won't get the movie right and DC has never gotten it right either. There is such a wealth or great WWII stories or greek mythology stories to be told but they never seem to quite get it right.

And the casting choices I've heard rumored so far have been small, meek looking girls who can barely lift Wonder Woman's tiara let alone hold her own against the baddies.

An animated one that looks promising is due out next year. I posted a bit about it on my blog, here. I don't think it is the typical Bruce Timm guys making it, but they are going to make WW a real basher.

I had an old DC Heroes RPG book on The Justice League, and they had Wonder Woman being half as strong as Superman. While half may sound, meh... It is half of Superman. Can't me move planets and crap? The Amazon Princess is no slouch! :-)

Morena Baccarin should totally be WW...she plays Inara on Firefly/Serenity and would KILL IT!
