“Wonder Woman” has already broken records with the biggest film opening for a female director and is expected to break $600 million at the worldwide box office. Now, the first film for the legendary superheroine will be cemented in history forever at the Library of Congress.
On Friday the Library of Congress welcomed Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, to a Q&A with Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden. The Q&A was part of the research library’s “Library of Awesome,” a week-long exhibit of its comic book collection.
After the interview , Carter unveiled that director Patty Jenkins had made a surprise donation to the Library of Congress’ collection. The film’s script, by Allan Heinberg and Geoff John, was handed over to Hayden in an emotional moment.

The Washingtonian reports that Carter says she will always be an advocate for what Wonder Woman represents.
“I’m an old girl now, but until my dying day, I will never stop fighting for the idea of Wonder Woman,” Carter says. “The idea of intellect and strength and courage. If my life means anything, it’s that I give you the gift of curiosity about the world around you, tapping into your own intellect and courage.”
