Beyonce's film credits include Dreamgirls and The Pink Panther
Pop star Beyonce has said she wants to play Wonder Woman in a film of the comic book heroine.
The singer has met DC Comics and film studio Warner Bros to express her interest in future superhero roles on the big screen.
"I want to do a superhero movie and what would be better than Wonder Woman?" she told the Los Angeles Times.
"And it would be a very bold choice. A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing. It's time for that, right?"
Wonder Woman, played by Lynda Carter on TV in the 1970s, has never been made into a feature film.
Beyonce was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in Dreamgirls two years ago, and has also had film parts in Austin Powers in Goldmember and The Pink Panther.
She will soon be seen playing singer Etta James on the big screen in Cadillac Records, and has a major role in the thriller Obsessed.
"After doing these roles that were so emotional I was thinking to myself: 'OK, I need to be a superhero,'" Beyonce said.
"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."
