Is Beyoncé Lobbying for Wonder Woman Role?Published by Natasha Fierce on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 10:00 am.
Is Sasha Fierce ready to go superhero?
After her electrifying Super Bowl performance, Beyoncé left jaws on the floor. And now, the Los Angeles Times is speculating her fire-powered performance was really a back door audition for the coveted role of Wonder Woman.
Superhero reboots have been Hollywood’s bread and butter for years now, but so far the Golden Lasso’ed babe hasn’t had her turn. Bey indicated she’d be wide open to playing Wonder Woman as far back as 2008. She told the newspaper’s Hero Complex blog, “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?”
Bey has fierce to spare, and she’s already comfortable workin’ it out without pants, so we couldn’t imagine a better fit for the role than her. As for the directors circling the in-development project, including Joss Whedon and Drive’s Nicholas Winding Refn, holler at your girl.
