Hollywood has been trying to get a Wonder Woman movie off the ground for years with several actress linked to the role: Jessica Biel, Katie Holmes, Lost‘s Evangeline Lilly. Now there’s a new contender for the role: Beyonce – who obviously forgot about Halle Berry’s Catwoman which turned out so awesome. The LA Times reports:
“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.
Now I have to do an action film. It’s like dancing and choreography. And the superhero movies now, they’re not corny, not corny at all, so that’s what I want to do. And I would love if it could be Wonder Woman.”
While my initial reaction to a black Wonder Woman mirrors that of a black James Bond, I’m going to be flexible on this one. Only because the most recent incarnation of Wonder Woman was Kim Kardashian’s cellulite-hiding Halloween costume. I don’t want to say she’s opened the door for other celebs whose asses have no business being crammed into Lycra, but would it hurt to let Beyonce try on the costume? Then maybe wrestle Kim? You know, as a beacon of how far we’ve come as a nation.
