Even the legendary Lynda Carter approved her costume and noted on Instagram that Jenner did an amazing job.
Lynda Carter played the role of Wonder Woman in the TV series, The New Adventures of Wonder Woman, which ran for three seasons from 1975 to 1979. In recent times, Gal Gadot played the role in the DCEU movies, gaining fans for her portrayal from all over the world.
Fans Demand Kendall Jenner To Play Wonder Woman
After Lynda Carter, audiences loved Gal Gadot in the role evident by the massive success of her first venture in the DC Universe. However, with the DCEU transitioning to the new DCU, a third planned Wonder Woman movie with Gadot was canceled. While the Red Notice actress is expected to reprise her role, fans have taken to speculating on other names who could replace the Fast X actress.
One surprising choice was Kendall Jenner, who impressed fans with her Halloween costume of Wonder Woman. She even posted a video where she transforms into the character in a nostalgic ‘70s setting. The photo and video went viral and even received approval from Lynda Carter. A Twitter account, @PopBase, reposted it sparking various reactions from fans.

Kendall Jenner’s 5 ft 10 in height is an asset to playing the warrior princess from Themyscira, but she might need to work on her physical strength. While she nailed the costume, some fans felt that Jenner was no actual threat to Gal Gadot.
Gal Gadot Once Executed A Flawless Portrayal Of Kendall Jenner
Gal Gadot hosted Saturday Night Live in 2017 and was one of the standout hosts on the show. Gadot nailed every segment, from the monologue to the sketches. One of her notable SNL sketches was a parody show called Kendall’s Model House, where Gadot did a great job at playing Kendall Jenner. Being a model herself, Gadot carried the traits of the 818 Tequila owner effortlessly.
The show mocked the life of the Kardashian sisters and Jenner’s huge house, with even an exaggerated plot showing Jenner often getting lost in her own lavish home. Besides Kendall Jenner, the Heart of Stone actress also impersonated the model and her friend, Gigi Hadid. Anyone who watched the SNL episode would agree that Gadot nailed her role as the world’s highest-paid model.

While it has been reported that Gal Gadot is set to return to her role in James Gunn’s DC universe, no Wonder Woman project has been announced in the first chapter. However, the original series, Paradise Lost, will explore Themyscira before the birth of Wonder Woman.
The New Adventures of Wonder Woman series and Wonder Woman films are now available for streaming on Max.
