Beyoncé playing a superhero. It’s so obvious, so natural. How did we not think of this before? Now that it’s a possibility, we pretty much need it to happen. Apparently, Queen Bey is in talks with Marvel and Disney to join the already crazy huge cast of The Avengers.
Apparently, producers think/know that Bey’s power could add millions of fans to the upcoming two movies in The Avengers series. Two sequels, The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2, are scheduled for release in 2018 and 2019, with spin-off films following specific characters also in the works.
A senior executive at movie distributor Disney said, “We would love to have Beyoncé on board, almost certainly as a newcomer to the screen from Marvel’s existing catalog of comic book characters.” Among those being considered are Boom-Boom, Blink, Tigra, and Hawkeye.
Personally, I’d love to see Beyoncé resurrect Foxy Cleopatra. I’m well aware she isn’t a Marvel character, but add a cape, throw her in with Scar Jo and Chris Evans, and let’s see how this plays out. Better yet, let’s just let Bey play herself alongside Thor and Captain America. Now that I would pay big money to see.
Whether this rumor turns out to be a rumor or not remains to be seen, but we’re crossing our fingers (and toes and everything else) that this happens so we finally have a reason to be excited when our bfs drag us to the theater to pay $20 to see some stuff explode.
