Beyoncé is ready to return to the big screen, and she may just have signed on for a project with Will Smith!
Is Beyoncé about to become a superhero? According to IMDB.com, maybe!
Bey will be playing a character named Carly Kicker in Hancock 2. Not much else is known about the film other than the fact that Will is set to reprise his 2008 role–not even the plot! We do know that Irene Bedard will play a woman named Knowles Neeson, and Adam Fierro is writing the screenplay.
This won’t be Beyoncé’s first movie, but this has the potential to be a very different role for her. She played a singer in Dreamgirls (not much of a stretch there), a singer/single mom in The Fighting Temptations, and a club singer/secret Agent in Austin Powers: Goldmember. We’re beginning to pick up on a theme here. She did briefly play a queen in the animated film Epic, though!
Queen B hasn’t spoken out on the part just yet, so fans will have to wait and see what her character’s storyline is all about. The nerdy part of us is really hoping she has super powers. Please don’t make her a villain, Columbia Pictures!
