Beyonce As Wonder Woman?

Sasha Fierce may not be the only alter-ego for Beyonce! Rumors are starting to swirl on the heels of Beyasha telling the LA Times in an interview:

“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. 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.”

(Luckily for Beyonce, one of Wonder Woman’s superhero powers isn’t giving great interviews) There are reports that Miss Fierce has already met with folks at DC Comics and Warner Brothers, so this could very well be more than just an exercise in public vanity. The news is sure to break the hearts of a long list of women that have also dreamed of being the one to fill Linda Carter’s red boots on the big screen. No need to worry Amazonian wannabes! Starcasm Pictures has a number of scripts featuring Wonder Woman inspired superheroes specifically geared for you ladies! (We’ve been working on these for some time, so sadly it’s too late for a couple) Our favorites:

Wonder Woman Sarah Palin Mother Theresa Amy Winehouse Jenna Fischer

    I feel that this isn’t the role for her. Race isnt a factor, but, Wonderwoman is caucasion in the comic strip I think that it will upset some long time fans. I think that they should stick to the original game plan. Remember Halle as ” catwoman” ? It didn’t do so hot. I would think that they would want to make money , not lose money. Any how, I did not see a caucasion person cast in the role of Malcom X.

    Katt – I think you’re comparing apples and oranges. Most of the comic book industry’s franchise characters were created before the Civil Rights Movement and few of them had identities that were tied to their race. (Wonder Woman was from a tribe of Amazons – Beyonce doesn’t seem like much of a stretch) Plus, one of the unique things about comic book characters is that they have a history of being “revamped” – think Dr. Who or James Bond. On the other hand, Malcom X was an actual human being whose identity is very tied to his race. Gary Busey playing an African American Civil Rights leader is a little more preposterous than Beyonce playing Wonder Woman. That being said, Halle Berry was indeed a very bad Cat Woman. (She”s a much better Storm from the X-Men movies. Of course, that’s mostly about looking good) I think there are better choices for Wonder Woman than Beyonce, but that’s because I want the character to be believable (in as far as a comic book superhero can be) in addition to looking good. Don’t think for a second that I wouldn’t queue up Beyonce as Wonder Woman on Netflix, though! I might watch it on mute, but I’d watch it!
