Lynda Carter, beloved by generations of DC Comics fans as TV's Wonder Woman in the 1970s, joins the cast of Supergirl from next season.
Carter will play the President of the United States in the series headlined by Melissa Benoist. She appeared in Smallville as a metahuman in 2007.
This news follows the casting of Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf) as Superman/Clark Kent. Carter joins fellow DC Comics live-action alumni John Wesley Shipp (The Flash), Dean Cain (Lois & Clark) and Helen Slater (Supergirl) on The CW.
As many fans (myself included) suspected after that jaw-dropping season finale, The Flash will officially be depicting the seminal DC Comics storyline 'Flashpoint' in season 3. This will directly impact CW stablemates Arrow, DC's Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.
