Beyonce, who is at this moment, one of the biggest music stars on the globe is trying to add yet more luster to her already radiant career. Yesterday she said that she would really like to play Wonder Woman in a movie. Thanks to loyal reader Rocksee for the tip that she she so brilliantly left in the comments section! Appreciate it! Check out Bey’s words:
Via BBC News:
The singer has met DC Comics and film studio Warner Bros to express her interest in future superhero roles on the big screen.
“I want to do a superhero movie and what would be better than Wonder Woman?” she told the Los Angeles Times.
“And it would be a very bold choice. A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing. It’s time for that, right?”
Wonder Woman, played by Lynda Carter on TV in the 1970s, has never been made into a feature film.
Beyonce was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in Dreamgirls two years ago, and has also had film parts in Austin Powers in Goldmember and The Pink Panther.
She will soon be seen playing singer Etta James on the big screen in Cadillac Records, and has a major role in the thriller Obsessed.
“After doing these roles that were so emotional I was thinking to myself: ‘OK, I need to be a superhero,’” Beyonce 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.”
Mediaoutrage- Say what you will about Beyonce, but never label her a dummy. She knows that by portraying one of the most famous comic book characters in history that it would only continue to solidify her as on of the biggest stars on the planet. This would also be a very huge step in furthering her career in movies. Another reason why it’s a smart move is that Action films gross way more money than others and tend to demand sequels. This reminds us of what Will Smith said about his planned success.
