In the 1970s, the catchy superhero theme song had lines about “satin tights” and “fighting for your rights”. Oddly enough, Linda Carters is no exception The current Diana Prince of Retro-Amazon Warrior or Calcutta has always made satin tights a regular part of their outfit. However, if we were not mistaken, it is very likely that Kristen Wick’s villainous Cheetah was shaking Leggings Close For that explanation in Wonder Woman 1984, In a hurry to conclude that a movie will only go by its hashtag title –WW84. Either way, regardless of who actually wore the satin tights (sadly no one?), At the end of a good chance WW84, At least a small percentage of people will sing that old “Satin Tights” theme song back to themselves. The corresponding post-credit display WW84 The nostalgia of the 1970s was a big shock.
Front spoilers WW84.
Technically during a mid-budget show, after the story WW84 Apparently over, we are introduced to a crow-haired, mysterious woman who saves an innocent people from disaster. At first we think it’s the Wonder Woman of Calcutta, but soon, the figure turns to the camera and tells everyone else: Her name is Asteria and “She’s been doing this for a long time.” If you have even a basic knowledge of pop culture, you will recognize the actress behind Astoria. Surprise, this is the “original” Wonder Woman, actress Linda Carter! The joke on the cheek here is easy: O.G. Wonder Woman is now playing the Amazon Warrior Asteria, Diana told us at the beginning of the film, who originally wore the golden robe of the resurrected pseudo-angel WW84.
As a comic book character, Astoria is not exactly a classic deep cut. Related to the history of DC Comics, “Asteria” is a new idea, at least in terms of background. WW84 Uses to describe her. In the film, Diana tells Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) that Austria has sacrificed itself to save the rest of the Amazon from the terrible world of humans. This often checks with the 2018/2019 reference on Austria Justice League Comic book series, in particular Justice League (Volume 4) # 11, In which Wonder Woman tells Aquaman something very similar about the legend of Astoria.
The sequel to Astoria from these contemporary comic books is not one of the things we see WW84. That’s the reason Seems By casting Linda Carter, the film plays with the idea of this Astoria Kinda, Sarda, another Wonder Woman.
In 1998, a shot was called a DC Comic Ellsworth’s Outstanding: Supergirl & Badgirl Volume 1.Readers briefly encountered another Asteria, a person who appeared to be the Wonder Woman Analog of a parallel Earth. In this dimension, Supergirl and Badgirl basically hold the same positions that Superman and Batman hold in “our” world, but instead of Prince Diana, that world (Earth-1098) had Austria. This means Linda Carter will face a foothold in the future Wonderful woman Ask her what happened to her Nifty armor? Alternatively, can you say that she is Linda Carter’s Austria footprint? Different Asteria from a parallel universe? Or, even more ridiculous, she’s actually a stranger in disguise, and a refugee on the CW Arrow TV shows?
If at last you feel blinded, here’s the thing: This isn’t the first time Linda Carter has landed in a live-action DC comics case. Except there is a cameo inside Smallville In 2007, she too Most recently Olivia Marstin played CW’s president of the United States Supergirl. But in that series, it was revealed that his character was a form-changing alien called Durlan. If you think that CCW superhero shows do not take place in the same sequence as the DCU movies, you are probably right. However, Ezra Miller’s Flash (from Justice League) Grand Gustin’s Flash met with a big CW crossover stunt, “Crisis in the Infinite Earths.” If that happens, is it fair to believe that Linda Carter will do the same?
Will any of these things end in a matter? Wonderful woman Continuation? Short answer: No. Bringing in Linda Carter for a small role is probably a great way to make all of the older generation of fans happy, and also to remind subscribers, yes, 1970s Wonderful woman, That nutso theme ended with the song and is now streaming HBO Max.
