Beyonce wants to be Wonder Woman
The Wonder Woman film has been going no where fast for a while now. There was a time when a lot of names where being mentioned with the role, but it's all gone quiet.
Now one of the most famous women in the world has stated that she wants to play Wonder Woman. It's only Beyonce Knowles.
It was Joss Whedon who was originally working on a Wonder Woman film for DC Comics. But his version was dropped. And last month, we heard that they are still waiting on a script. There is some confusion as to whether it will be an origins story, and where it will be set. Either World War II or modern day are the options at the minute.
Suffice to say, Wonder Woman is in developmental traffic. It hasn't stopped Beyonce Knowles from stating that she'd rather like to play Wonder Woman in a superhero film. She spoke to The Los Angeles Times.
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 says that she has met with people from DC Comics and Warner Bros, and expressed her interest in starring in a superhero film. After two musical roles in Dreamgirls, and the upcoming Cadillac Records, Knowles fancies a go at something different. Although she thinks not too different really.
After doing these roles that were so emotional 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.
Like most of us she has been impressed with the new take on superhero films lately. And after seeing the original Wonder Woman costume in a museum recently, her interest was piqued.
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.
So assuming a script is ever produced, and a director agreed on. Do you like the idea of Beyonce Knowles as Wonder Woman?
