In case you're still interested in his early attempt at an April Fools article, it is below. BTW, any submissions of "fake news" except on 4/1 will get you banned from CBM, so please, no copy cats.

Just got back from a press conference tonight with Beyonce and she spoke of a few upcoming movie projects. The last one on her list was Wonder Woman!

Yes, Wonder Woman! She said she has to meet up with the writers and directors in a couple months and things will start to pick up by mid-2010 for a late 2011 release. She said the writers were Stuart Beatti and David Elliot, the guys that wrote GI Joe: Rise of Cobra and the director was John Moore, the guy that directed Max Payne.

THIS IS BULLSHIT.

What he said.
FlashFact - 10/5/2009, 8:52 PM
This just can't be true...beyonce's great and all but not for WW
Betty - 10/5/2009, 8:53 PM
STFU!! Beyonce Im ok with. The others, STFU!
supermarioworldE - 10/5/2009, 9:07 PM
She is awful for the part. She can't act. Just look at obsessed. The day this movie get's made with beyonce, is the day I completely lose my faith in WB.
supermarioworldE - 10/5/2009, 9:08 PM
Damn, Multi, You're quick!
DTLSinger - 10/5/2009, 9:09 PM
thats so stupid just like the rumor that eddie murphy is playing Riddler... no offence but Wonder Woman is WHITE SHE IS AN AMAZON! not and african there is a difference
RorMachine - 10/5/2009, 9:09 PM
Physically, shes perfect for WW. I mean, its not as if WW is any real race anyway, the Amazonians are a mythical race! And I guess she's supposed to have a Greek look..but that wouldn't bother me. What would, is that i don't think shes a strong enough actress to pull it off.

And like Betty, the other stuff disturbs me more! Writers of GI Joke? I thought they had to be shipped back to the Amazon to rejoin their monkey pals. Director of Max Payne? Please tell me this is bullshit!
Tobuttica - 10/5/2009, 9:10 PM
Don't just look at obsessed, look at every movie she's been in. She's hot, and she can sing if you like her music, but that's about it. Austin Powers = terrible , Dreamgirls = terrible, Pink Panther = way below terrible. WB will not get my money if she is Wonder Woman. I have no problem with her, but her in movies.
Spectre94 - 10/5/2009, 9:11 PM
please no this would be another catwoman
KillerOfSaints - 10/5/2009, 9:14 PM
Well, at least she would have JLA ghetto booty
TheMyth - 10/5/2009, 9:19 PM
lol, this sounds fake as hell. Like some fanboy just fabricated our biggest nightmare and chose the prospective WW movie to manifest it. If this is true however... damn this is gonna suck.

For the record, I'd march another mile on Multi's nuts to insert my penis into Beyonce's vagina ;)

Multi, check my post on this article:

It's the article where a digital war started between you and 'Karen' lol, I added my 2 cents and I'd like you and the others who were a part of it to read it.
Phinehas - 10/5/2009, 9:21 PM
This news is so bad it has to be fake. If its not fake, someone's gonna go postal!

Stay close to your TV is this verified.
StephenStrange - 10/5/2009, 9:25 PM
.... just waiting for someone to play the race card. I know it's coming any time now.
weapon925 - 10/5/2009, 9:26 PM
Lets do some math.
G.I. Joe was a crap fest.
Max Payne was lukewarm at best.
An Actress so completely wrong for a part.
How can this not make butt loads of money?
Phinehas - 10/5/2009, 9:29 PM
Rorschach-

1: According to Comicbook mythos she's a Greek.
2: According to Myth (or Legend), she's Scythian according to Herodotus.

Either way, her facial features and skin tone betray her lineage to Africa. That is messed up, dude! By your reckoning, Will Smith could be better cast as Supes than Beyonce as WW!
C'mon, I think you response is revealing that you really don't care for the character or the comic. I suppose I'm a little worked up on your response because I typically respect your judgements in these areas.
supermarioworldE - 10/5/2009, 9:32 PM
@Multi, Do you sleep? I swear you've been online since yesterday. And you're still beating me at the typing game!

@Darth, it already has

@Weapon925, Not even god-like advertising would get that movie any money
thwhtGuardian - 10/5/2009, 9:32 PM
I'm not as worried about beyonce as I am about the writers, I mean come on G.I. Joe!? I've never seen her act but wonder woman is one role where I don't think race is that important, sure she was white in the comics but she's a member of a mythical race so it wouldn't be terrible to retcon her a bit. Wonder Woman was always just a pretty superman so it doesn't matter if she's black and beautiful or white and beautiful. I've never seen her act, but there have been plenty of surprise hits so if her casting pans out to be true you won't hear me complain.
MercWitaMouth88 - 10/5/2009, 9:33 PM
Well if this is happening.....lets get Will Smith as Captain America
ClintEastwood - 10/5/2009, 9:34 PM
AND YOU GUYS THOUGHT SETH ROGEN AS GREEN HORNET WAS BAD, HAHAAHAHAAHA, shit, this sucks.
Bandrews1 - 10/5/2009, 9:36 PM
I like Beyonce and all but she is the wrong choice for Wonder Woman, this is not for her.
ViperXX79 - 10/5/2009, 9:36 PM
To be fair, Elvis was a good actor. King Creole and Jailhouse proved that. He was just never allowed to do anything serious because of the image his people wanted him to keep.
thwhtGuardian - 10/5/2009, 9:36 PM
Phinehas, I think the sentiment about beyonce is mostly due to how bad the writers are, she is literally the least troubling thing attached to this picture.
If she acted well you could ignore the fact that it was a different take on WW but with bad writing all you can do is hope for a decent reboot in 5-10 years.
thegreek - 10/5/2009, 9:36 PM
What kind of shit is this ... WW is greek not Black ... WTF... GREEK ... shall i say it one more time GREEK... Stupid mother [frick]ers... That's it i'm going to make a Beyonce movie and have the whitest girl on the planet star in it as Beyonce ...

Don't get me wrong she is hot as hell but still
ecksmanfan - 10/5/2009, 9:36 PM
NOOOOOO! OK...the Beyonce thing is bad enough, but the writers and director? I'd rather pluck out my own pubes than watch them rape this character! This had damn well better be fake!
thegreek - 10/5/2009, 9:38 PM
@ Ecksman - LMAO ... So true so very true... it will flop if they do this horse shit
mgalusick - 10/5/2009, 9:54 PM
She's a big fan of the character. But this seems like bad idea on all levels.

The Guy who wrote G.I. JOE

The Guy who directed Max Payne

Beyonce as Wonder Woman

Diaster.

Wow, sound like another Catwoman in the making.
CROVL - 10/5/2009, 10:01 PM
Folks...time for some education,

The Greeks learn pretty much learned and mimiced EVERYTHING from African culture...Ethiopian, Egyptian, etc. (Homer even wrote that Zeus and all the gods would go to Ethiopia to fellowship, learn and party).

Nonetheless, Wonder Woman has always been protrayed and illustrated as an ethnic woman (dark hair, curly hair, full lips, full figured, etc.) Lynda Carter is actually hispanic and she made a great WW on TV. I think its time to be open to different concepts and imaginings of our iconic heros and heroines.

So, while Beyonce is beautiful and would be a great look for WW (bad acting aside), I personally think the absolute best option to play WW is... SERENA WILLIAMS!

Just look at her physicality and athletic ability. Is she not built like a "mythical" Amazon would be? She could lean out, and imagine fight scenes with her on screen against robots, or Ares?... And yes, I'd probably have her rock some dreds in the movie, not straightened or curly hair. Probably would have her rock a futuristic version of the classic JLA skirted uniform for the movie and then transition into a full bodysuit of light armor.

That would be tight son!...
StephenStrange - 10/5/2009, 10:04 PM
Multi, your a man after my own heart dude.

I mean my point of view is a little different from mine, but like you I am also opposed to drug use/traficking

I hate drugs and absolutely do not support any notion of legalization of anything. If not for the fact that I ocasionally sip red wine with my wife, I would be considered completely Straight Edge.

MPP-

"Is it so wrong for a fan to want to see a comic character they love brought to life as true to the source material as possible?"

That's precisely what is upsetting me about everyone's flippant attitude. If it were Superman, more people would be up in arms about it. I know that people are duplicitous when it comes to race. Otherwise, there is little reason to not change everyone to look like Fat Albert and the Junkyard gang! Why go after such a beloved character for multicultural/PC sensibilities?

How's Hawkman's popularity?
Phinehas - 10/5/2009, 10:09 PM
Crovl, in the spirit of the new administration, you have to share what you're smoking with everyone! Now, pass it around!!!

I'm sure the speed force derives from somewhere in sub-sahara Africa!

Weiner, lol, if you think that Christ was a white man your [frick]ing retard. I am by no means a religious person or even spiritual in any manner. Hell, many would call me an Atheist, but I do enjoy studies of theology so I can argue with ignorant fanatics.

Multi, I can respect that. I do agree that it is immature and disrespectful to flaunt one's disregard for the legal status of it by bragging about their habitual use. Just like with alcohol, there are those who use responsibly, and those who abuse foolishly. But enough of that, as an officer, I don't want to make you feel uncomfortable with me because of a differing point of view on such a serious subject. I think your a cool guy even if you arrest people for something I see nothing wrong with (had to take my shot there, I mean, your a cop and we're online, hehe, E-THUG!)

Jojo Risen, You have a very good point. There is an integrity in that occupation that has to be upheld. Fallacy would completely destroy the authority, and I would imagine it takes discipline to maintain such integrity. I speculate the most difficult part would be separating personal feeling from the authority, but I've never been an officer so that's just my thoughts.
thwhtGuardian - 10/5/2009, 10:19 PM
You have a point Plinehas, changing a character to fit an ethnic demographic is wrong. My stance has always been that if you're upset that there aren't any characters that look like you then you should go out and create some that represent you and your culture and not retcon another character to fit your needs. To bend a character out of his or her true self is not only demeaning to the character but also to yourself for by doing so you don't really get a black or asian or latin character you only get a hero with a different skin color but with out the traits that make your own ethnicity unique.

That said I'm less disturbed by wonder woman's race than the director and writers. I can deal with miscasting but the other stuff is inexcusible you need a good director and an excellent script for WW. In many ways WW is similar to Thor in that it should have an epic and other worldly feel, however it cannot be to far removed from humanity. It essentially needs a perfect script and a classically trained director something that the above proposal is lacking, which is a larger problem than casting.

Here's hope this never sees the light of day.

Darth Mulder,
Of course, the only logical person for Barry Allen would be Keenan Ivory Wayans.
