You know, Wonder Woman from the TV series has stuck in most of our minds for one reason or another. For some, it was ‘girl’ power. For others, she may have been their first crush – for whatever reason, we all loved the show.
Wonder Woman was created by the American psychologist and writer William Moulton Marston and first drawn by H. G. Peter. The character first appeared in All Star Comics #8 in December 1941 and first cover-dated on Sensation Comics #1, January 1942. The Wonder Woman title has been published by DC Comics almost continuously except for a brief hiatus in 1986. Her depiction as an international diplomatic heroine fighting for justice, love, peace, and gender equality has led to Wonder Woman being widely considered a feminist icon.

It’s hard to believer but the TV series with Lynda Carter playing Wonder Woman originally aired from 1975 to 1979. It came to an end because CBS ultimately decided to move The Incredible Hulk up to the Friday 8:00 hour from 9:00 to introduce the new series The Dukes of Hazzard and no further episodes of Wonder Woman were produced. After her first musical television special, Lynda gave up the role to focus more on her musical career. In addition, she would star in television films and become a fashion and beauty director in Maybelline cosmetics commercials.
So lets fast forward to 2017. The Wonder Woman is intended to be the fourth installment in the DC Extended Universe. The film is directed by Patty Jenkins, written by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns. The plot; after American pilot Steve Trevor crashes on the island of Themyscira and tells her about a world war that is happening, Diana leaves her home to try to stop the war and becomes Wonder Woman.
