Wonder Woman???

Quote:
Beyonce Knowles wants to be the first black actress to play Wonder Woman on the big screen.

"A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing. It's time for that, right?" Knowles says in an interview with the LA Times.

For her role as Etta James in the upcoming drama Cadillac Records, Knowles had to pack on 20 pounds. Though the actress is in fighting shape now, she acknowledges the red, white and blue bathing suit is an "unforgiving" one.

Re: Beyonce: "A Black Wonder Woman Would Be a Powerful Thing"

Why not just recast all new roles as black actors?

Why would it be a powerful thing? The president is an African American, what the **** is powerful about Beyonce playing Wonder Woman?

I dont care who does it, white or black, but lets quit saying "We're ready for this now right?" Cat Woman was black a few years ago, they made the King Pin black, not to mention Will Smith is Mr. Summer blockbuster. Its not like she'd be breaking black woman into the industry.

Re: Beyonce: "A Black Wonder Woman Would Be a Powerful Thing"

Catwoman? C'mon.

The gulf between the prestige of WW and Catwoman is massive. Having a black woman play what is perhaps the most iconic female character in comics would be huge. It'd be the equivalent of having a black Superman (well besides Ryan Howard).

Re: Beyonce: "A Black Wonder Woman Would Be a Powerful Thing"

1. No, just....no. Beyonce can't act, she'd be terrible.

2. Megan Fox is just as bad, she's probably a worse actress than beyonce, if that's possible, and I don't think she's capable of closing her mouth.

Either way I think a wonder woman movie would bomb.

I guess Kobe feels like averaging 30 again. At this point, he’s like Keanu at the end of the first Matrix. He became who he was supposed to be and now he’s just gonna do whatever he wants.

I dont think so both Men and Women would want to see this movie even if they have never read the comic because they know who Wonder Woman is and most women love Wonder Woman without even reading 1 of her comics...Also you really dont think all of these men that had dreams about Wonder Woman as a kid wont go and see it? I think Wonder Woman would do great at the box office it would draw both Men and Women all they need is a strong female lead but both Megan Fox and Beyonce would be horrible for the role...But Megan Fox would draw people to the movie thou because she is hot right now and i just dont think Beyonce would

Re: Beyonce: "A Black Wonder Woman Would Be a Powerful Thing"

Stick to the origins please. Meaning no Beyonce, and no I would not go watch a Wonder Woman movie. Wanna have her on screen, it better be with the Justice League or Trinity. As a stand alove movie, its a bad idea.

No on Beyonce. You aren't an actress. You suck at it.

That's probably her best guarantee of getting the job.

No way they would do Trinity they would rather do 3 stand alone movies with Superman/Batman/Wonder Woman make alot more money that way...A JLA movie with Bale/Routh and who ever play Wonder Woman i think will happen if Avengers movie does good but i only see them having a cameo and the movie focusing more on the other character just have Bale and them guys name on the movie to draw people to the theaters...Which imo would be great i would love to see a JLA movie that wont focus on just WW/Batman/Superman
