Do You See Beyonce As Wonder Woman???


Beyonce Desires To Play Wonder Woman On Big Screen

Pop singer/actress Beyonce told the LA Times that she too wants to get her foot in that genre and wants to play Wonder Woman on the big screen. Beyonc√© says that she has met with representatives of DC Comics and Warner Bros. 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 Dark Knight'” ‘Iron Man’ and the ‘Spider-Man’ and ‘X-Men’ franchises.

She goes on to say that she chose Wonder Woman because she saw Lynda Carter’s costume from the 1970s television show on display at the Costume
Institute’s ‘Superhero’ show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

‘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.’
