Beyoncé Wants to Be First Movie Wonder Woman
She sings, she acts, and now Beyoncé is out to save the world: The former Dreamgirl wants to become the first actress to play Wonder Woman on film.
"I want to do a superhero movie and what would be better than Wonder Woman?" she told the Los Angeles Times. "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?"
Beyoncé says she has met with DC Comics and Warner Bros. representatives about the possibility of starring in a Wonder Woman movie. Her films to date include Austin Powers in Goldmember and Dreamgirls, and she plays Etta James in the upcoming Cadillac Records.
"After doing these roles that were so emotional I was thinking to myself, 'OK, I need to be a superhero,'" Beyoncé said. "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."
"I would definitely have to keep it right for that costume," she added. "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."
What do you think? Would Beyoncé make a wonderful Wonder Woman?
