Could Beyonce really be the new Captain Marvel? That?s the question everyone is asking right now since news broke out that Marvel Studios are running the possibility of letting Beyonce Knowles play a future superhero from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The iconic singer is allegedly going to be named Captain Marvel, teaming alongside Thor, Iron Man, and the Hulk, according to the Inquisitr.
?We would love to have Beyonce on board, almost certainly as a newcomer to the screen from Marvel?s existing catalog of comic book characters,? According to an unnamed senior executive for Disney. Beyonce isn?t new the big screen as she has had an experience with a number of roles including ?Dreamgirl,? ?Cadillac Records,? ?Obsessed,? and ?Epic,? shared by Inquisitr. In fact, the singer previously announced her interest in playing a superhero role in the big screen.
?After these roles that were so emotional I was thinking to myself, ?OK, I need to be a superhero.? 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?? Beyonce stated earlier in 2008 in an interview with People magazine.
?I would definitely have to keep it right for that costume. 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.? She even had conversations with DC Comics and Warner Bros. about playing the character but unfortunately didn?t pan out because Gal Gadot will portray the role of Wonder Woman in the new movie ?Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.? But for the singer and Captain Marvel fans alike, there are still no official announcements as to who will play the female superhero. Let?s hope that Marvel makes the right decision.
