For a multitude of reasons any fan is willing to list off, Wonder Woman has been an incredibly hard character to bring to the big screen. While other actresses have played the DC Comics superhero over the years, Lynda Carter is best known as the originator of the role, appearing on the 1975 series for three seasons. Access Hollywood recently caught up with the actress, and got her take on the new Wonder Woman costume being worn by Gal Gadot in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The first image of Wonder Woman was released during Comic-Con 2014 by director Zack Snyder, and for the most part, it was well received. Lynda Carter, though, finds it a little drab for her tastes.

"Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say. Maybe there's a lot more color in it than what we saw in the picture."

Lynda Carter then went onto talk about the challenges of playing a superhero, which is tough for any actor.

"It's almost impossible to play a superhero anyway. You can't. You just have to play a character that happens to do these amazing things. That's the only way you can do it. And the costumes all take care of themselves, but it was a little more - I'll have to wait and see. I hate to comment on something that I haven't seen and I'm very supportive of Gal Gal Gadot. I'm very supportive of them doing Wonder Woman, putting her in any capacity. I think she needs to be out there. ... It's high time somebody took a chance and did it and so I'm really happy about that."

Here is the picture in question, in case you are one of the few who haven't seen it yet:
