They don't even have Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins signed on to the film yet and they're trying to dictate what she can and cannot do with it.

Taking to Twitter, Jenkins thanked Lynda Carter, the actress who portrayed Diana Prince in her first ever live action role in the cult classic Wonder Woman television series of the 1970s.

Both women have been vocal about their appreciation for each other's stake in Wonder Woman: Jenkins, for Carter's legacy, and Carter for Jenkins' treatment of it.

"It really is up to Patty, and if it works in an organic way it'll be great fun and it'll be wonderful to do", Carter told the magazine.

"Am I open to it?"

"'Wonder Woman' is also a vehicle of female empowerment, something we don't regularly see in the superhero genre, and that has made it a very unique property this summer". Carter is what Adam West is to Batman or Christopher Reeve is to Superman, as she starred as a popular TV version of the character from 1975-79.

Wonder Woman has undoubtedly been one of the movie highlights of the year.

Carter was actually nearly in the first film.

And Gal Gadot wants you to know that she appreciates it.

As Wonder Woman heads into its eighth weekend at the box office, the film has earned a total of $372.5 million domestically and $749.5 million worldwide.

Starring Gal Gadot as Diana, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Ares, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, Wonder Woman is now screening in theaters. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny. And thankfully, there's hope for her involvement going forward.
