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.

# 2

OH GOD PLEASE NOO!!!

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.

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 **** that ****

# 9

whatever.

blacks are getting somewhere!!!

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

and “negroish?”

okay, just ignorance.

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

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

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!!

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHHA

The female Barack Obama she is NOT.

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

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

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

#2 you are a racist *****!

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!!!

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??? @ 11/07/2008 at 8:22 pm

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!

Oh hell noooooooooooooooooo

Maybe Christina Aguilera but not Beyonce WTF

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

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!
