While we sometimes share topics of wild speculation we typically identify it as such. And then there are some stories that we just wont touch without confirmation from a reliable source.
One fire that I neglected to fan was Beyonce as Wonder Woman. Not because I doubted it could happen, but more because there has been NO talk about DC moving forward with Wonder Woman just yet, and the article breaking Beyonce as the star named a director and filming to begin in 8 months.
And then I just couldn’t see them doing Wonder Woman with a non-actor in the lead considering the trends of the current breed of Comic book films.
Well it turns out that the mass disapproval of the news was validated as the whole thing turned out to be a hoax.
It now turns out that this information came from a scooper and it is 100% false. The scooper has decided to come clean and has emailed ComicBookMovie explaining that he made up the story in order to impress his girlfriend. The site has banned him and has posted an apology.
So it seems that as much as Beyonce wants to play Wonder Woman, Warner Bros has yet approach her.
So while the site comes clean with its breaking of the story I hold no ill will against their efforts. Breaking a story first is a big win for websites that talk about movie news, and I cannot fault them for being eager to be the first with the story.
I am just glad that it turned out to be a hoax, as that disappointment is far easier to swallow than finding out the scooper was accurate.
But at the end of it all I just wonder just who this contributor was who thought this would impress a girl. This esteemed role I hold here at this site has never scored me any points with the ladies.
