There are pros and cons regarding Beyonce Knowles’ desire to be the next Amazon Superhero, Wonder Woman – a rumor that has spread on the internet. “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?” she told the Los Angeles Times.
The “Dreamgirls” star also said that she has met with representatives of Warner Bros. and DC Comics to express her interest in a major role in one of the many comic-book adaptations now in the pipeline following the massive success of the “Spider-Man,” “X-Men” and “The Dark Knight,” and “Iron Man” franchises. It’s not clear if anyone will be able to deliver a Wonder Woman project anytime soon.
Ms. Beyonce interest in the role was strengthened earlier this year when she went to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and saw on display Lynda Carter’s iconic costume. “I would definitely have to keep it right for that costume,” she says. “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.”
Wonder Woman is a fictional character, a DC Comics superheroine created by William Moulton Marston. First appearing in All Star Comics #8 (December 1941), she is one of three characters to have been continuously published by DC Comics since the company’s 1944 inception (except for a brief hiatus in 1984).
Wonder Woman is a member of a fictional, all-female tribe of Amazons who is sent to “man’s world” as an ambassador. Among the Amazons she is known as Princess Diana (being the daughter of Amazon queen Hippolyta); in “man’s world” she takes the secret identity of “Diana Prince.” Her powers include super strength, hand-to-hand combat ability, and sometimes flight. She also makes use of her Lasso of Truth, a pair of bullet-deflecting bracelets, and an invisible plane. (wiki).
Here are some of Pro and Contra taken from various sources:
Rae: I like Beyonce’s music too, but I just don’t think she would not be a great wonder women. And I’m a be blunt, I think her acting is atrocious, at times. I am sorry, not to be an ass, but I think it would be better that whoever plays Wonder Women resembles her. And besides, I kind of think at times Beyonce want to resemble a white women, so badly too, and this coming from a black female…
tk: If Beyonce REALLY, REALLY took some acting lessons, I think this would be a dream part for her – unfortunately for her, acting lessons are not all she needs, a little more education so that she understands the words she dictates and their nuances would do her a world of good – I think she’d be a perfect Wonder Woman – who says Wonder Woman can’t be black? – popwatch
Sinestro: Beyonce?? UGH!!! Just because we all love Obama doesn’t mean companies should cast the first black woman they find in every important role. – latimesblogs
DrBeeMe: Are you guys kidding? I am not a Beyonce fan… neither do I like her music… but after watching her as Foxy Cleopatra there is ONE thing you can’t say… that she can’t act. The girl IS a great actress… you people just need to be a little more open minded.
Michael: Ok so she wants to be Wonder Women but lets be for real nothing against Beyonce but Wonder Women is not a stronge black women she is a stronge white women. Then did not get a black male to play Superman,Batman or any other movie so why do it for Wonder Women. Beyonce can sing and act but to see her play Wonder Women would be a let down to us who grow up with Wonder Women.
Kim: Beyonce is very fit for wonder woman she can do it. Wonder Woman is not meant for white people ….blacks people got all d looks …..n beyonce got d hot n sexy looks ..she can do it very well she is a DIVA she has 7 MOVIES DONE ALL IN TOTAL 2 new 1s are coming out..EVERY HATING ON BEYONCE WILL BE SUPRISED IF THE MOVIE COMES OUT …LINDA CARTER CANT PLAY IT VERY WELL EVEN MEGAN …BEYONCE GOT D BODY FOR WONDER WOMAN SHE IS SEXY THAN THEM ….THATS WHY WARNER BROWS CHOOSE BEYONCE TO BE WONDER WOMAN CUZ SHE IS A SUPER STAR…SO YALL STOP HATING FOR NO REASON …QUEEB B sasha firece will stink wonder woman and she will play it until every one will be suprised …love u QUEEN B ur da BEST!!!!
