Megan Fox: stop talking.

Lynda Carter starred in "The New Adventures of Wonder Woman" in the late 1970s and has said that she loved the superhero since she was a kid. Carter is reportedly pretty unhappy that Megan Fox is being considered to play Wonder Woman in a new version, considering what Megan Fox said.

It's reported Megan Fox is in talks to star as Wonder Woman, the superhero who's been called the icon of feminism since the mid-20th Century. When Lynda Carter heard this buzz, she felt the need to speak up -- she'd once heard Megan Fox make fun of the character. "She flies around in her invisible jet and her weaponry is a lasso that makes you tell the truth," Megan Fox was quoted saying about what she called the "lame superhero."

Lynda Carter thinks it's pretty comical that suddenly Megan Fox is vying to play the part -- need a paycheck a little, Megan? Carter showed up on the set of FoxNews to discuss her wonder about Fox's folly: "Megan Fox actually kind of trashed Wonder Woman," Lynda Carter said. "She said she thought it was dumb, like, 'What's the big whoop making people tell the truth.'" Carter said she didn't necessarily hold Megan Fox's words against her -- "I like her," she said -- but perhaps Megan shouldn't speak so flippantly. "I just thought she shouldn't trash Wonder Woman."

But should she play Wonder Woman? Commenters participating in Web buzz say totally -- both Lynda Carter and Megan Fox are total hotties. (Really guys, the feminism thing?) Sounds like these two actresses may have different approaches to sexuality, too -- where Megan Fox is known for flaunting, Lynda Carter once said,

"I never meant to be a sexual object for anyone but my husband. I never thought a picture of my body would be tacked up in men's bathrooms. I hate men looking at me and thinking what they think. And I know what they think. They write and tell me."

Lynda Carter has more class in her lil finger than Megan Fox ever thought of having. Mrs Carter has stood the test of time when it comes to showing class, I go with whatever she says when it comes to Wonder Woman and who she wants to portray her.

Megan Fox is gross. She's just a blow-up doll. She should NOT play Wonder Woman. Lynda Carter was terrific in that role, and SHE doesn't have freakishly deformed thumbs, like Megan Fox.

Don't trash the role, if you have to trash it, then you should not be it. Lynda Carter did the character honor. Sorry Megan Fox, you don't.

I can understand wanting to update Wonder woman for 2010 but, would she still be the same justi loving superhero that Lynda Carter protrayed? Somehow I would think that a revised Wonder woman for today would be something all together different. I am sure that Hollywood would turn her into something Sexual rather than something that stood for Justice. Find someone who is better suited for the Role not some kid who obviously did not grow up watching the series like most of us who grew up in the 70's

Lynda Carter is the essence of class. Pls point out to Megan that the role being cast is Wonder Woman, not Wonder Girl. My vote is for Beyonce to play the superhero!

Sorry, but Lynda's portrayal of Wonder Woman left too high a standard for anyone to fill in after her, and they would need someone with say, some intelligence, and better taste than Fox to try and fill in those shoes. LYNDA is waaaay out of fox's league dude.

megan fox is a pig and a hypocrite! She hates that men hang her picture up and thinking what they think. Well, if that is true, she should NEVER have put her ugly naked tattooed ass all over the place!

"Lynda Carter Slams Megan Fox" I would like to nominate this for the misleading headline of the year award. Congrats.

I'm with Carter. I know we're talking about a make-believe character here, but it is a feminist icon that should be respected a little more than Fox’ reported commentary, especially if there’s a possibility that she might be staring as wonder woman. Anyway, we’re talking about two very different women trying to stand up for an idea. I think Carter’s winning.

Megan Fox is so over-rated ---

Whichever lame company is think of letting Meghan Fox come anywhere near Wonder Woman need to read all the comments that this story is getting on all the sites it is on before they spend millions to make a huge flop!!!

I said a few years ago that I could only see Charlize Theron as Wonder Woman and they went an entirely different way. Megan Fox is barely a class above porn star and it would be a complete slap in the face to girls, now women and mothers, to cast her in such an iconic role.
