Back in March, Supergirl executive producer Greg Berlanti revealed that they wanted to have former Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, play a role on the series. Today, Warner Bros. and The CW confirmed that Carter has been cast on Supergirl in a recurring role as the President of the United States.
