Now that Superman has been cast for his Supergirl t.v. series appearance, the CW has cast former Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter as the President of the United States for the upcoming season.
Carter is slated to appear in multiple episodes likely to air in October.
Carter’s casting is the payoff of previous plans revealed earlier this year by “Supergirl” executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg. “We had the perfect role for Lynda Carter, and we couldn’t work out her schedule,” Berlanti told reporters, including CBR News, at a press event this past March. “We’re going to do it, we’ll just do it next year,” Kreisberg added. “She’s the female president of the United States,” Berlanti then disclosed.
With addition of Ms. Carter, Supergirl is doing a good job at creating buzz for itself. Season 2 premieres October 10, on the CW.
