Supergirl has been such a fantastic show – it has everything – a hero we all love, characters we adore AND a legend visiting the set. In Season 2 we had Lynda Carter become part of the cast as Madam President. Throughout the episode there was Wonder Woman references to pay homage to the original Warrior Princess.
They were so much fun but the ultimate Wonder Woman reference came when Melissa Benoist did the iconic Wonder Woman twirl. If you didn’t spot that twirl then you haven’t watched Wonder Woman (gasp! WHY? HOW? Go watch!).
Rachel Talalay who was the director for episode said to CinemaBlend – read the full article here
“[The references] were written in the script, and they were absolutely embraced,” said Talalay. “We were allowed to push them, but they were definitely in the script. That was great because that gave us permission to just say ‘We know we’re doing Wonder Woman homages.’ So there was an absolutely magical moment when it was scripted that Melissa was to do the Wonder Woman twirl to put herself out when she was on fire. Lynda came and said, ‘I’ll show you how to do it.’ I have on my phone a video of Lynda Carter showing Melissa Benoist how.”
I want to see that video!!!
