Would Beyonce Make a Good Wonder Woman?

Beyonce Knowles wore a superhero-esque metal glove on her hand for the MTV EMAs on Wednesday night and according to the singer/actress she's ready for the cape part too. She recently revealed that she would love to take on the role of Wonder Woman on the big screen. She said it would be "a dream come true" and that having a black woman in the role would be "a powerful thing." So what do you think — would Beyonce make a good Wonder Woman?

Er NO. Megan Gale's got it in the bag if we're going on looks alone.

"Skin color should be seen as just another physical trait here, and a requirement for the role. Suppose we had a white guy playing the role of Malcolm X or something? That would be just as silly." I agree, I mean she is not a great actress by any means either which is another reason why I wouldn't want her to do it but Wonder Woman is white, that's just a fact - I HATED that they cast Jessica Alba in Fantastic 4 for the same reason (and Halle Barry as Storm!). It has nothing to do with race but being a fan of these comics makes me want a more accurate portrayal.

I think Sarah Lancaster from Chuck should play wonderwoman. She has the bone structure and everything. Althought Megan Fox is a good choice. She's just too petit to be an amazon. Sarah Lancaster is beautiful! http://www.sarahlancasterwebsite.com/chuckgallery/fullimages/1.jpg

I don't think Beyonce would be a good choice based on her acting skills (or lack thereof).Pallas Athena, I agree with you and I don't think you are being racist. Trust me, I'm definitely not racist ESPECIALLY against black people and I have friends of all ethnicities. BUT I don't think that certain people should play certain roles for authenticity's sake. If there was a black superhero, I wouldn't think that a white person should get that part. By the way, Halle Berry played Catwoman and I think that is more of a race-neutral role than Wonder Woman. I don't think it would be a problem if a woman of mixed race played WW either...actually that would be appropriate since, as others mentioned before, Lynda Carter is of mixed race.The example of Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder is not really valid anyway because his character in the movie was a white actor playing a black person for a film.

Thanks Sarana. Honestly, I don't think Beyonce could play the part. She said something about race, but she isn't that great an actress. I think a lot of superhero movies fail anyway and those with amazing actors (or great stories like Batman and Spiderman and even Iron Man) are the only ones that do well. I just hope that when the WW movie comes out the actress picked is one that can act and looks like WW.

I don't understand why she says having a black woman play wonder woman would be "a powerful thing"? Is it because (a) It would be a different take on the character of wonderwoman (b) Black women are better than any other race of women, or (c) Black women are looked down upon, so it would be cool if wonderwoman, a hero, were black...I hope it's (a), but I think she just needs to be more clear on what she is saying because it sounds a little bit racist...Oh and I think her acting sucks. If they were to use a black woman for the part I think Halle Berry would be great. Otherwise, Kate Beckinsale would be a perfect wonderwoman.

Unless wonder woman will be portrayed as a deaf mute that stands in a corner in a costume and never moves, speaks or sings, then no.

Of course she wants to play Wonder Woman...lol Of course she does. Hollywood has so little integrity now that something as stodgy as an Oscar is basically up for grabs...for the right price, of course. That Beyonce should have Oscar buzz (and that it should be because her acting coach, and her acting coach alone, said so) is just beyond ridiculous. She actually admitted to doing a dramatic scene and immediately afterward jumping up and down with her Mom and entourage. "That was it," is what she said...lol As if a portrayal should be so uneven that one gauges her success by one scene. Are you kidding me? If she's nominated for an Oscar -- even nominated -- I'll know Hollywood is as vapid as MTV.

I think *an actress* would be a better choice for the part!(Then again I don't get the big deal about her singing either, but I do think she's pretty.)
