Petition to “Keep Beyoncé Off ‘Black Panther 2′” Surges Past 30,000 Signatures

Published: Friday 12th Jun 2020 by Rashad

Just a day after reports surfaced Beyoncé was in the process of closing a historic $100 million deal to partner with Disney on future productions (click here to read more), rumors swirled the ‘Kitty Kat’ performer would curate the soundtrack to the sequel of ‘Black Panther’ (due in theaters May 6, 2022).

Somehow, that rumor elevated to whispers she was set to portray beloved ‘X-men’ character Storm – which set off a firestorm of mixed responses of longtime followers of the Marvel franchise.

Among the disappointed, one particular detractor took to Change.org to ignite a petition to ensure the ‘Pink Panther’ star kept her award-winning hands off the next installment of ‘Black Panther.’

Details inside:

Though believing she can “sing and make beautiful music,” Torrence S., of Columbia, South Carolina, launched a petition Thursday (June 11) to demand Marvel “keep Beyoncé off of the Black Panther sequel.”  In a lengthy write-up accompanying the request, the author stated:

“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.”

Apparently, over 30,000 others agree.  At writing, the digital petition – found here –  has garnered over 30,000 signatures in less than 24 hours.

*****

As the petition continues to gain signatures, Matt Donnelly – senior film writer at ‘Variety’ – confirmed Wednesday (June 10) it is unlikely Beyoncé’s relationship with Disney will see her involved with the ‘Black Panther’ franchise.

 

As of time reported, Disney nor Bey have confirmed the extent of their reported relationship.

    Portraying Storm would fit her as hell tho. I am here for it.

    • Clarks0o0ñ June 12, 2020

      • Matebesi Sehume June 13, 2020

    white people out here doing the most. hilarious

    • Gwendolyn Suggs June 26, 2020

      I won’t question her ability to act bc that’s not my character. Most importantly none of my business. But what about me? I am a great actress! Been waiting PATIENTLY for a long time! It’s my turn. Send me on my way if I don’t show you entertainment. but at least give me a chance. #PickMe.

  4. Clarks0o0ñ June 12, 2020

    Beyoncé would be a bad, s*** ass storm. I hope while Beyoncé quarantined she hired a private acting coach. She would look bad af in that costume. I’m all for it, but the comics geek want to see a dark-skinned actress in this role.

  7. Bravo!! June 12, 2020

    Halle Berry wasn’t a good storm either.
    Ms. Berry had an on and off accent as storm.

    • Agatha williams June 12, 2020

      Beyonce have zero acting skill riri gir the win

      • Matebesi Sehume June 13, 2020

        Your English is worse. Don’t you know when to use “have” and “has”? At least she does. Hmm another thing she’s better at than you

  8. Justme June 12, 2020

    People are trying to tell beyoncè what to do with her career and trying to tell a big company like Disney how to do business. This is hilarious. She probably wasn’t a choice, but this will put fire under Disney to get her on it.

  9. #TheTruth June 12, 2020

    That guy lost all credibility when he suggested Rihanna 😂
    The foolishness is real…

    • Chileplease June 12, 2020

      My thoughts exactly. She’s even worse.

    • The baddest June 12, 2020

      Right I said the same thing!

      • Matebesi Sehume June 13, 2020

        Imagine listening to Rihanna’s torn voice the whole duration of a movie😭😂😂😂 she’s not even a singer that one. She talks her songs through. Hey she wouldn’t make a great actress.

      • Sildek August 29, 2020

        You mean song like Higher?….. heheheheheeheheeeheeh

  10. Misty Knight June 12, 2020

    Rihanna (No, she can’t act), Zoe Saldana (She’s already in the Marvel Universe as Gamora so that’s a stupid suggestion), Zoe Kravitz (She’s the new Catwoman for DC Comic Movie Universe ), or Zazie Beetz (Already in the Marvel Universe as Domino. Disney is making Deadpool 3.)

    They need to find a newcomer that they can turn into a star. Storm is also not Westernized. She needs that royal accent.

  11. Michael Miller June 12, 2020

    Although, I love to watch her performances. She gives you everything when she’s up there on stage singing. I’m not really feeling her entire personality in the (part 2) Black Panther movie. It doesn’t fit her. Don’t get me wrong. I believe that she is a good actoress!!! But BP’s entire cast gave the movie… Strength. She’s not “strength”.

    • Matebesi Sehume June 13, 2020

      Did you even give her a chance dumb b****?

      • Nason Duran July 26, 2020

        Michael makes a well thought out comment and you respond by calling her b****. looking at all your posts on this page you are either a huge Beyonce fan boy or some how related to/know her. Calm your ass down kid.

  12. Unnatural June 12, 2020

    My thoughts:😂😂😂😂😂😂😂! Yeah we dont need her ruining that gem.

    • Coupe June 12, 2020

      I want naomi Campbell as storm

  13. Jay June 12, 2020

    I would choose Kelly as storm over Beyonce. Period

  14. Teko June 12, 2020

    Nooooooooooooooo… she must not be allowed to be in this movie. Pleasssseee

  15. Wanda June 12, 2020

    Why is this person only naming light skin black women/racially ambiguous women to play a dark skin storm? Not to mention dragging Beyonce acting, but wanting Rihanna to replace her? IKYFL 🤣🤣

  16. Onika+The+R*****+Whisperer June 12, 2020

    ARE YOU READY LIONS?!

  17. Just Sayin’ June 12, 2020

    Beyonce as Storm? HELL NO! Beyonce is a stage performer no an actress. BP2 soindtrack HELL NO! There are just somethings Beyonce cannot excell in and these are two good examples.

  18. anonymous June 12, 2020

    She ruined lion king ain’t no way she’s going to ruin Black Panther.

  19. PinotNoir June 12, 2020

    It’s not like looking like an electrocuted albino granny half the scenes requires acting range and nuance of anybody portraying Storm. Bey, or Maya Rudolph parodying Bey, would be a cool choice. Heck, have Tamar in that Storm wig screen test. Even Iyanla Vanzant while at it! 😂

  20. Agatha williams June 12, 2020

    Beyonce have zero acting skill riri gir the win

  21. Prince Muvz June 12, 2020

    She is super amazing in music and I think she can be good if shez to act the Queen character in the Black panther movie.

  22. Monia June 12, 2020

    Please FIND HALLE BERRY!

  23. Biancacook June 12, 2020

    I hate haters hey. You just sitting on the couch all day and denting it, at your mother’s place even. STFU and let others do the best they can. Don’t ever be the reason that halts another person’s dream or grind.

  28. Matebesi Sehume June 13, 2020

    Bittered mouth.
    How tf did your parents raise you? Eww

  29. Matebesi Sehume June 13, 2020

    Beyoncé is everything and more. May we not stand in the way of other people’s grind. Move along and do something with your life and don’t seek fame utilising her name. She’s a great actress, voice-over artist and musician. Grow up people.

  30. Matebesi Sehume June 13, 2020

    Beyonce’s deep voice would do wonders portraying storm😭😭😭❤🎊

  31. Anthony McKeown June 13, 2020

    As someone who works in the industry, it should be only fair to allow an aspiring actress instead of an established artist. It would seem to be a cash grab. As well as she is being hired for her fans rather than talent.
