On Tuesday, it was revealed that another superhero is joining the cast of Supergirl! Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, has signed on for the upcoming installment of The CW show.
However, she's trading in the crown and the spandex she wore on the 1970s Wonder Woman TV series for an American flag pin and a seat in the Oval Office!

That's because the 64-year-old will be playing the president of the United States in the superhero drama!
The show itself even took to Twitter to confirm the casting news, posting:

What an awesome surprise!
A three-year-old girl named Sophia Sandoval recently finished her last chemotherapy session after being diagnosed with medulloblsatoma last May.
And the strong little girl decided to commemorate the moment by donning her favorite superhero's costume — Wonder Woman!
But the favoritism didn't come from nowhere! Here's what her mother Rossio Sandoval said:

Overly concerned Wonder Woman fans will be happy to know that the superhero's iconic shorts will be gracing Adrianne Palicki's behind throughout NBC's new series.
The network's president Robert Greenblatt set the record straight during an interview with TV Line:
"There was an initial outcry about the long pants—you know, skintight pants as opposed to those little shorts [worn by Lynda Carter in the original TV series], but the shorts were always planned. They are actually used in the final confrontation when she beats Veronica Cale [Elizabeth Hurley]."
Glad we got that little detail settled.

Watch out, West End! Wonder Woman is coming your way.
Lynda Carter is slated to perform in London this coming September, promoting her new solo album, At Last.
This is the first time in almost 30 years that she has done a show in the West End, and this time, promoters promise a night "filled with her favorite music… paying homage to her musical heroes."
If you're a fan, you should grab your tickets FAST. There are only two shows and we have a feeling Lynda is going to sell-out!
Any of U planning to go?
