Beyonce To Play Wonder Woman?

Beyonce To Play Wonder Woman?

Beyonce has expressed her Amazonian ambitions, telling the LA Times that she wants to be the first black Wonder Woman. In fact, she’s already in talks with DC Comics and Warner Bros!

She tells the paper, “I want to do a superhero movie and what would be better than Wonder Woman? It would be great. And it would be a very bold choice. A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing. It’s time for that, right?”

Beyonce continues, “After doing these roles that were so emotional (Dreamgirls, Cadillac Records) I was thinking to myself, ‘OK, I need to be a superhero.’ Although, when you think about the psychology of the heroes in the films these days, they are still a lot of work, of course, and emotional. But there’s also an action element that I would enjoy.”

As for costuming, Beyonce wants to stick to the original: “I would definitely have to keep it right for that costume. The way that Lynda Carter wore it, she was sooo fine. She was amazing. I saw her costume at the Met. Her waist was unbelievable. It was pretty crazy, actually, her proportions. But I love Wonder Woman and it’d be a dream come true to be that character. It sure would be handy to have that lasso. To make everybody tell the truth? I need that. It would come in very handy.”

If America’s ready for a black President, maybe a black Wonder Woman isn’t so far off.

    I’m all for a black Wonder Woman, but please find someone who can act first.

  • justno

    OH GOD PLEASE NOO!!!

  • andrea

    Beyonce I saw your acting…so I say NO. Don’t ruin Wonder Woman. I have a felling if she did get the roll, she would play that character she played in the Austin Power’s movie she was in.
    Beyonce, Saha, whatever you call yourself now, do not mess with a classic. Its bad enough you messed up a Stevie Nicks song, don’t touch this.

  • nysro

    Go to hell Beyonce! Stick to what you are semi good at and singing…

    you SUCK at acting…

  • dialectic

    so are we all going to ignore how racist comment #2 is? negro? REALLY?! wtf ? im surprised you didnt use the term “colored” seriously im not a super PC person but fuck that shit

  • natasha

    whatever.

    blacks are getting somewhere!!!

    anything is possible for black people now, so blacks, don’t use any excuse!

    and “negroish?”

    okay, just ignorance.

  • Jesse

    I wouldn’t mind a black Wonder Woman but with that being said, NOT BEYONCE she is a horrible actress!!!!!!!!!!!

  • tom

    Not her, please give the part to someone who can act and who is pretty.

  • piper, with a low

    Errr… no.

    She can dress like Wonder Woman at home, for Halloween, or maybe even in a music video, but in a feature length film? Hell to the no!!!!

    A Wonder Woman movie has been talked about for years; maybe the problem is casting. But there is no way that Beyonce is the solution.

    Seriously!!

  • Nicole

    HAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHHA

    The female Barack Obama she is NOT.

  • yuck

    She’s a horrible actress and singer. I don’t color the color of the skin, please find someone who can act please!

  • Jude

    This is just dumb, I am all for casting different ethnicities in non-traditional roles, but this one makes absolutely no sense. A black, latino or oriental superman or batman could work, but Wonder Womans’ entire identity and story is wrapped up in her Greek origins. The actress that plays wonder woman has to be Greek, or at least Greek enough looking.

    Also as other posters have mentioned…Beyonce can’t act

  • yUCK

    Beyonce would make a TERRIBLE Wonder Woman!!! That would be so sad. She needs to stick to writing music, singing, and dancing.

  • niqua

    #2 you are a racist BITCH!

  • Sharon D.

    I’m black and I don’t want to see a black Wonder Woman anything, let’s leave Wonder Woman as she is.
    plus
    Beyonce + acting = Major DISASTER!!!

  • oh plz

    Umm sorry beyonce but you are a really really really bad actress, actually i don’t even consider you actress,don’t play the card -excuse-skin please, cuz that has nothing to do with it, i perfer seeing a talented black actress who deserve bettre that role than you, sorry but you can’t have it all, keep sticking screaming in your songs..you’ll be busy ..it’s better than nothing.

  • Are the crazy???

    I understand the whole “equal” thing. Always have….

    But really! I agree with #16. Wonder Woman is an ICON in the DC Comics and always will be…AS A GREEK PRINCESS!! It would be almost unethical to do something like that. That’s like making a new Superman movie and casting Chris Brown as Clark Kent! No disrespect to African Americans. They deserve to be involved in everything as much as the rest of us are..

    Think about it…if there was a movie about Mr. T…would it be ok to cast someone like Brad Pitt to play him?

    I vote NO you can’t!

  • Nancy

    Oh hell noooooooooooooooooo

  • jUSTIN

    Maybe Christina Aguilera but not Beyonce WTF

  • http://yahoo Sondra D

    she’s Beyonce’ so she will get the part!

  • Vivien

    I don’t care what type of person plays Wonder Woman (black, white, asian, etc.) … all I care about is that they can act. Unfortunately, Beyonce can’t act. She should seriously stick to the singing thing!

  • pop86

    I don’t know what happen to her. It seems the more successful she becomes the dumber she becomes. She needs to take a break from the spotlight for a year or two.

  • jasmine

    Isn’t Linda Carter half Mexican? I agree with the people who say Wonder Woman is an icon and shouldn’t be tampered with. If they were going to do that, get someone else. Beyonce can’t act her way out of a paper bag.

  • isabel

    No! NO and NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

  • really

    Ok this is getting ridiculous….wonder woman is traditionally white..thats what she is, we dont take any traditionally black characters and change them do we? If we did that..oh I wouldnt be able to imagine that! The scandal that would ensue! Ok we have an african american president…..i get it thats super..but please people stop being so idiotic about shit ok?

  • Apg

    THis bitch has lost her damned mind. Hoe sit down. Speaking as someone of color and an avid reader of DC comics, I prefer they stick to what’s what. She is delusional.

  • john

    Does anyone remember a black cat woman?

    black cat woman = halle berry = disaster!

  • Mlle

    Not possible!

    George Miller (the director of Happy Feet) has already purchased the rights to a Wonder Woman movie and has already cast Megan Gale (ex-Supermodel) in the role. The movie was due to start filming a year or so ago but filming was suspended due to the writers strike.

    Why is it racist if you look at skin color to exclude someone but not the other way if you only look at skin color to include someone, they can’t have it both ways, if you take out the fact the she has darker skin pigmentation then some people because she probably lighter skin and with her blond hair then a lot of people who consider themselves white there would be no reason for her to get the part, she is not famous enough to carry a major movie on the other hand she is not an unknown that would peg peoples interest , she isn’t a good enough actor to get the part for her acting abilities, so after America just elected a mixed race black man to the most powerful office in the world, and after a black women who not only is the richest women in America but also one of the most powerful help get him there, we have to her from millionaire Beyonce that because she is black she should be able to play the part of an iconic charter in a movie, has if there was no black role models and it would be a service to the public, talk about self serving.

  • twhylieght

    GOD NO!!! MEGAN FOX IS SO WONDER WOMAN!

  • Kill me now

    Please let this be a rumor!!! Wonder Woman is greek and not black. Not even someone with blond hair should play her. Megan Gale is perfect. I hope they stick to her. And not everyone loves Beyonce as much as she loves herself. Someone should tell her that. Her movies and music suck and she needs to stop letting her fashion retarded mother dress her!

  • DECENCY

    Beyonce can’t act.

  • SHESUCKS

    WOW she really thinks highly of herself, doesn’t she?
    is she even an actress??? what has she done other than that musical with Jennifer hudson??????? go away, she cant act and she can barely sing

  • GOOD VICTORIA

    LOL…NUMBERS # 4 AND # 8………She needs to just stick to singing and quit trying to branch out……..Why do celebrities HAVE to start other so-called talents, other than what they do…It is a never ending process, of ………COOKBOOKS, BABY ITEMS, HANDBAGS,WIGS, C.D.’S, CLOTHING LINE, MAKE-UP, PERFUME, SHOES, LINGERIE, AND HAIR PRODUCTS…..We are flooded with this crap, and most do not do well anyway……..Don’t we have enough junk on the shelves ?…………and on T.V.?……Go away Beyonce, and just stick to your vocal chords…….You are NOT a Wonder Woman….

  • cain

    It’s not about the color, but can you find someone with women’s legs at least?

  • missindependent

    First of all-COMMENTER #2 IS A RACIST!
    Second- Beyonce can’t act…..I don’t care what race/skin color Wonder Women(linda carter is part mexican after all) just make sure that whoever the actress is has some actual talent!

  • Cynthia

    IS SHE SERIAL???!! OH HELL TO THE NO!!!!!

  • sarah

    oh hell no! NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • Caley

    Kill Me Know and Mlle, there were/are 2 WW movies. Megan Gale was tapped to play WW in the Justice League movie, which is now stalled, indefinitely.

    The 2nd movie–scheduled for 2009/2011 has also been stalled due to Josh Whedon quiting. Whedon wanted Colbie Smulders from How I met Your Mother for the part and Joel Silver had wanted Jessica Biel, bot neother could agree. Silver also specified that he wanted someone between early 20s and mid-20s for the part who is at least 5’8′.

    Both movies have stalled indefintely.

    I don’t believe Beyonce is seriously in talks for the role.

  • Zooey

    JARED, PLEASE DO NOT turn Obama’s presidency into a GIMMICK.

    WW is a cartoon character. Obama is a real person.

    I hate that people are trying turn this educated man into some sort of politcally correct gimmick. “Oh, a black president, now let’s paint everything black because it’s the popular thing to do.” What the hell does Obama being the first non-white president have to do with an historical cartoon character or film character, in the case of James Bond? First Daniel Craig spoke about a black James Bond and now this. It’s turning absurd and insulting to blacks that Obama’s real victory/success is being spurned into a “comical” gimmick to be politcally correct.

  • xoxo

    i think they should get a more skilled, talented and more athletic actress to play Wonder Woman….

  • Zashley4ever

    NONONONONONONOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!First they take our my freedom and now my imagination!!We need to stick to the original!!!White.Sorry Beyonce we’re just not ready for this.

  • iVANA

    Since when has Beyonce been black? Maybe a *black* Barbie but a black girl? Bi*tch please. Rihanna’s more black than Be-yawn, & that’s sayin something. At any rate: I’m hungry.

  • ginger

    NO! Leave Wonder Woman to a white woman with Black hair and blue eyes… Linda Carter was so perfect for that role…
    If she’s wants to be a superhero, she can be Storm…

  • ginger

    Megan Gale is pretty but she needs braces… She’s got money go get her teeth fix. Her buck teeth sticks out more than her other little teeth. I don’t remember Wonder Woman with buck teeth…

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    that’s like making superman black. lmaoo a white superhero should stay white… and a black hero should stay black.

    no matter what color wonder woman is.. the movie would suck major balls. movies (regular or comic book; superhero) suck when they have a female lead.
