After news broke Thursday of Beyonce possibly appearing in Marvel’s sequel to the iconic Black Panther. There were thousands of people who were not happy with the decision.
A petition was started on Change.org by a Torrence S., and he states:
“As a fan and lover of marvel and disney movies. I think it is with best interests of fans and many lovers of the art. We would like to keep beyonce out of Black Panther 2. Even though it is a great film and comic. Many others and I feel thats her vocal and physical acting is insufficient (for lack of better words).
Amidst the protests and the times we are going through, we feel like her acting sucks and can not take her serious enough to be fully entertained by her roles in movies. We would prefer that she continues to sing and make beautiful music but as far as her acting goes and we know that she knows that her skills in theatre are not worthy of such products of entertainment produced by Marvel/Disney franchises.
For better ideas of better actress to fill the role, we suggest that she be replaced by Rihanna, Zoe Saldana, Zoe Kravitz, or Zazie Beetz. Reasons being is because we know the movie will gross immensely but the overall turnaround for the movie will be tarnished if it is too meet the standards of its predecessor, Black Panther. So, for the sake of the franchise and all of the fans of marvel/disney, Please direct Beyonce another role instead or please remove her entirely from the movie. Maybe make her a feature on a few songs on the soundtrack but acting in any form… No.
IF ANY OTHERS AGREE PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND SHARE IT AS FAR AS YOUR REACH GOES.”
Many responses to the petition seems to agree that Beyonce is not the right choice for the role as well.
During the publishing time of this article the petition had 23,685 signatures.
Beyonce most recent role was as the voice of Nala in Disney’s 2019 remake of the Lion King. Before that she had roles in 2013 animation film, “Epic,” and 2009’s “Obsessed.”
