Beyoncé is already a superhero to the BeyHive, and she might be taking her powers to the silver screen for a new Avengers movie. That is, if the report from a Britian’s “most successful newspaper,” is actually true.
According to The Daily Star, producers believe Bey “could add millions” to the multi-billion dollar movie franchise (that’s a no brainer). “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,” a senior executive at Disney allegedly said.
Marvel will release The Avengers: Infinity War flicks in 2016 and 2018. Mrs. Carter is reportedly being considered for several different Marvel characters including Boom-Boom, the alter-ego of secret agent Tabitha Smith, who uses mind power to create plasma bombs; Blink, a superheroine who can teleport anywhere; and Tigra, a “cat-like crime fighter” with superhuman strength. Another supposed choice is Hawkeye, a male character who is a master at archery, and was originally played by Jeremy Renner. Maybe producers want to switch it up and turn him into a female in Bey’s honor?
Other than the Daily Star’s “exclusive” report, there’s no real proof that the 33-year-old is actually joining an Avengers flick. But let’s face it, we’d all love to see Super Bey share screen time with Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., and the rest of the Avengers' crew.
Time will tell.
