Beyonce Knowles apparently comes from the school that if you put it out there it will happen. Perhaps that's why she told the Los Angeles Times recently that she'd like to slip into that Wonder Woman costume.

Knowles, who will next appear as Etta James in the upcoming "Cadillac Records," is one of many celebrities hoping to capitalize on if Barack Obama can be President, then she can be Wonder Woman.

"What would be better than Wonder Woman?" she tells the Los Angeles Times of her dream role. "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?"

Knowles, 27,  said she has already met with representatives at DC Comics and Warner Bros. to discuss playing the all-American babe.

"After doing these roles that were so emotional I was thinking to myself, 'OK, I need to be a superhero,'" Beyoncé tells the Times. "Although, when you think about the psychology of the heroes in the films these days, they are still a lot of work, of course, and emotional. But there's also an action element that I would enjoy."

Her interest in the role got a boost earlier this year when she saw Lynda Carter's iconic costume on display at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

"I would definitely have to keep it right for that costume," she says. "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."

By the way, WTF has seen "Cadillac Records" and Knowles has never been better on screen.
