  I am unsure of just how much of this I believe and I admit I am reluctant over the news. According to a report from comicbookmovie.com; R&B/pop singer Beyonce will play the role of Wonder Woman in an upcoming film. in a recent press conference the R&B star announced that she would be taking on the role of the iconic comic book character and she has already met with screenwriters Stuart Beatti and David Elliot (GI Joe: Rise of Cobra) as well as director John Moore (Max Payne). If everything goes as planned, filming should start mid 2010 and would be released in late 2011.

News of the pop singer taking on the role of the iconic super-heroine has been circling the web this morning, yet all articles cite one source. I for one am a bit reluctant to believe that comicbookmovie.com were the only ones present at the press conference, which is why I am not taking this very seriously. In the event that the rumors are in fact true, the question remains why would Warner Brothers get the guys that wrote GI Joe to write their Wonder Woman film? How do you guys feel about the prospect of Beyonce as Wonder Woman? If you could get anyone to write and direct the upcoming film, who would it be?

An older woman who can't act. That's cutting edge.

Beyonce as Wonder Woman would be an Epic fail disaster.  Not putting much stock into comicbookmovie's report but there are so many reasons this is wrong it would take longer to write down than I have time.

No but it offends me when directors are stupid an cast people with no credible acting careers. Beyonce is a HORRIBLE actress who is aonly bearable when shes in a comedy, and only then. 

And yes before you crucify me I have seen her other movies and I still think shes a horrible actress.

Wonder Woman is one of the staples of DC comics why would they want to f@#k something up so bad as casting Beyonce as WW. F@#king morons

I think the offense has to do with not staying true to the character (ethnicity included) any other ethnicity would get the same response. 
I am sure that the black community of comic fans would be offended if spawn, luke cage, or black panther were given silver screen treatment only to be portrayed by an actor that was not black.

Cause then it would be a spoof and would turn more into a comedy. Cause frankly if BLACK panther was a pale white dude in a movie i couldnt stop laughing in the theater

Isn't WW suppose to be kinda Greekish? Why not find a Greek woman to play her.

I guess I jumped the race card too soon. My bad, I agree with you 100%. Clint Eastwood playing Black Panther would be a sight to see though.

I think the Comic Book Movie article is just poorly written. I almost posted this on my site before re-reading it and determining Beyonce merely said she was "in talks" with the people behind the film about possibly playing her.

She just doesn't fit the character.  Wonderwoman is tough as hell and she looks it.  Beyonce doesn't.

I'm sure the person was offended more at the fact the person cast was a singer that has yet to prove her acting chops, so don't scream racism. And, anyway, imagine the outcry that would occur if a white person was cast as Blade. You know that'd never fly, right? People don't want characters they know and love to change drastically in personality or appearance.

not human and there is only ONE race. the Human Race.
it has more to do with how she is depicted in comics rather then what ethnicity. she should appear Greek but is often shown appearing as an Anglo American.

She's depicted as white\greek but she's technically not a woman or even a person for that matter.

comicbookmovienews.com must really be scraping to have people visit their site.  Heck, we're talking about this crap--AGAIN--and I've mentioned them, so mission accomplished on their part.   
 
No way.  No, no, no, no.  No.  Rumor or not, I don't care that Beyonce thinks she could do it most people know better.    
Go after a different character Beyonce.  You're hot and all but you're NOT Wonder Woman.   
So tired of some celebrities trying to get roles clearly they have no business getting.  *cough* Nic Cage *cough*
