Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman.

The first season of CBS' "Supergirl" series has included guest appearances from many veterans of past DC Comics-based projects, including Dean Cain ("Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman"), Helen Slater (1984's "Supergirl" film) and Laura Vandervoort (Supergirl on "Smallville"). Though scheduling didn't work out this season, the show's executive producers have a very important role in mind for Lynda Carter -- TV's "Wonder Woman" from 1975 to 1979.

"We had the perfect role for Lynda Carter, and we couldn't work out her schedule," Greg Berlanti, executive producer on "Supergirl" plus The CW's "Arrow," "The Flash" and "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" told a group of reporters Thursday afternoon following a press screening of Monday's "Supergirl" episode, which guest stars Grant Gustin as The Flash. "That's the biggest disappointment for me for this entire season."

"We're going to do it, we'll just do it next year," an optimistic Andrew Kreisberg, also an EP on all four shows, added.

"Alright, good," Berlanti said, before revealing the role they have in mind for Carter: "She's the female president of the United States."

Though that's short of an official announcement of Carter's involvement in "Supergirl" season two, it certainly appears that the show's executive producers are eager to have her on -- and to put Wonder Woman in the White House.

"Supergirl" airs 8 p.m. Mondays on CBS. Keep reading CBR for more from the "#SupergirlXTheFlash" press event.
