(Newser) – There’s no film in the works yet, but Beyoncé has made her intentions clear: She wants to be the first big-screen Wonder Woman. The star shared her ambitions with DC Comics and Warner Bros. after being wowed by Linda Carter’s original costume at superhero-themed museum exhibition earlier this year, reports the Los Angeles Times.

"I want to do a superhero movie and what would be better than Wonder Woman?” the performer says. “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?"
