Beyoncé is poised to revive her movie career as a comic book superheroine, we can exclusively reveal.
The singer and actress is in talks with Marvel and Disney bosses over a role.
Producers want her to join the cast of The Avengers after the success of new episode Age Of Ultron, which took £1.1billion at the box office in six weeks.
They believe Bey, 33, could add millions of fans if she starred alongside Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow, and Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch.
Two sequels – The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 – are scheduled for release in 2018 and 2019, with spin-off films also in the works.
A senior executive at movie distributor Disney said: “We would love to have Beyoncé on board, almost certainly as a newcomer to the screen from Marvel’s existing catalogue of comic book characters.”
Among those being considered are…
● Boom-Boom: The alter-ego of Tabitha Smith, a secret agent with the ability to create lethal plasma bombs with her mind.
● Blink: A superheroine who can teleport herself and others anywhere.
● Tigra: A cat-like crime-fi ghter with superhuman strength, speed and agility.
● Hawkeye: An expert in combat, including sword-fi ghting, archery and jujitsu.
Earlier this year, Beyoncé moved with rapper hubby JayZ, 45, from New York to LA’s swanky Holmby Hills so she can reboot her acting career.
She earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role in 2006’s Dreamgirls and also starred in The Pink Panther remake the same year.
