Beyonce wants to be a 'WONDER WOMAN'

You can add Beyonce to the long list of actresses who have mentioned in an interview that they'd like to play 'Wonder Woman' in a movie.

The singer/actress told L.A. Times 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?"

Apparently she's met with DC Comics and Warner Bros. to express her interest in the project, which she would see as a departure from her recent string of more dramatic roles.

"After doing these roles that were so emotional I was thinking  to myself, 'OK, I need to be a superhero,'" Beyoncé told Hero Complex. "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."

Matt Busch unveils 'ILLUSTRATION NATION'

Comics, Star Wars and Peanuts artist Matt Busch is getting behind the camera again. Busch has produced several art videos and, a few years back, directed his low-budget feature film 'Conjure'.

Now he's apparently returning to the more familiar territory with a documentary about his "Rock Star Artist" life called 'Illustration Nation'.

The movie promises "an intimate look behind-the-scenes at MATT BUSCH's 2007 Planetmatt World Tour. From George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch, through the heart of Hollywood, to the fantastical streets of Tokyo, experience an uncensored look at fandom and the pop culture industry that drives it.

This pulse-pounding documentary features rare cameos ranging from ANTHONY DANIELS (STAR WARS) to GENE SIMMONS (KISS, Family Jewels) to adult film legend SEKA. Hop in. This is one ride you don't wanna miss!"

Busch is hosting a premiere screening on November 20th at the Main Art Movie Theater in Royal Oak, Michigan at 7pm.

He's also posted a trailer on MySpace:

 

Review: 'HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY' single-disc DVD

World's Finest DVD Report takes a look at the bare-bones release of 'Hellboy II'.

"The single-disc release is a good alternative for those interested in just the movie, and not the bonus features. It's an regular release for the movie, but those wanting to see more of the film's production are better off picking up the three-disc or Blu-ray release."

Look here Beyonce, just cause we got a black president doesn't mean our white superheroes are gonna be turning black ok.  And if they were, it certainly wouldn't be for you.

After your emotional roles what you should be doing is making a porn film instead of wanting to be WW.  I'd pay to see that!!

Couldn't have said it better myself Hanso.

 Let Marvel Ultimates Universe mess that up. I could see her as Misty Knight in a Iron Fist is Heroes for Hire movie. But as for Wonder Woman, I vote Lisa Marie!

If Beyonce is going to be wonder woman than brad pitt should be black panther and george clooney should be luke cage. Makes as much sense doesnt it. Hey beyonce you idiot it isnt racism, its called RESPECTING THE SOURCE MATERIAL. Christ I wish people would get a life a be realistic, like people who want Will Smith to be Captain America!  Sorry wonder woman was white!!! Its a fact not racism! Why doesnt Beyonce want to be storm in a solo movie which marvel has plans for in the future, or how about a captain marvel/photon movie, taht would be realistic. But besides that Beyonce cant act for shit anyway! As for black panther the guy voicing him in the cartoon should be him in a live action movie, or don cheadle but he is rhodey now. Luke Cage should be either Tyresse gibbons (did i spell that right?) or 50cent.

Djimon Hounsou should be the one Playing Black Panther in a live action movie since he is already doing the voice for the cartoon. HE is an hell of an actor and can pull off a royal king superhero. Or like i said Don Cheadle but its too late now that he is rhodey.  But Beyonce needs to get a fucking life christ! This isnt about racism or making a point its about RESPECTING THE SOURCE MATERIAL. I think they should make a bishop movie with adam sandler as bishop, that makes as much sense!

                   Beyonce as Wonder Woman would probably come off a lot like the Halle Berry CATWOMAN debacle.

FINALLY someone is LISTENING....and even BEYONCE herself.......GET a TRUE AMAZON to play WONDER WOMAN.....PLEASE.......not these frking STICK FIGURED, 110 lbs women......BEYONCE or T. BANKS......WONDER WOMAN is an AMAZON.....not a BARBIE.......

 

It is bad enough we have HUGH JACKMAN...all 5'8 160lbs sopping wet, with rocks in his pockets, playing WOLVERINE......get someone WHO LOOKS beleviable....NOT the stick figured women who we can see every freking bone in there in their uppper torso......ARGGHHHHHH

The only way Beyonce can be WW is if they use cgi to make 2 thirds of her ass disappear. I frankly don't care if they change race, afterall when ever we see Themyscira we see black amazons too. So I don't have a problem with that however Beyonce doesn't seem to be a good enough actress IMO.

Brooke Shields would be the perfect WW, she looks the part in every single way. I know sh'e a little older but I still think she looks young enough to pull it off.

My second choice for WW would be Anne Hathaway

I wouldn't be surprised if Brolin turns this down. He seems to be more of the "artsy" type of actor.

loganxman 11/9/2008 5:29:39 PM

Brolin is a shitty actor, he barely made it in no country for old men, he sucks like his old man and step mother. Thomas Jane should be jonah hex, or Jason Chatam if he can hide the accent and get some hair!
