Wonder woman – Beyonce – now it’s time for a black Wonder Woman

Anybody of a certain age can remember Lynda Carter in Wonder Woman – tight, tight outfit in red, white and blue.


But way before the TV programme she appeared not Lynda Carter in comics.   We move from the 1970’s and right up to the 21st Century and now it could all be on  our screens again and this time with the superstar Beyonce.    She is already a superstar, but now Beyonce Knowles wants to be a superhero – as the first black Wonder Woman.

At only 27-years-old she has met with executives at DC Comics and Warner Brothers, who own the rights to the iconic figure, to discuss what are the next steps to produce this little gem again.


‘A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing,’ Beyonce said. ‘It’s time for that, right? It would be great.’ Her interest was sparked  when she saw the costume worn by Lynda Carter in the hit Seventies TV show on display at a museum. She said: ‘I was thinking to myself, “OK, I need to be a superhero.” Wonder Woman would be a very bold choice. There’s an action element that I would enjoy.’ Beyonce, whose acting career has included  a comic turn in Austin Powers In Goldmember and a Diana Ross-type character in Dreamgirls, says she is ready to camp it up in

‘I would definitely have to keep it right for that costume,’ she said. ‘The way Lynda Carter wore that suit was amazing. Her waist was unbelievable. It was pretty crazy, her proportions. But I love Wonder Woman and it would be a dream come true.’

But Beyonce faces some competition. Dannii Minogue also wants the part – get out of her Dannii Minogue no way on earth!  Mission: Impossible III star Keri Russell is to play her in an animated film and newcomer Megan Gale will be Wonder Woman in Justice League.
