Nicki Minaj Up For Playing Catwoman In The New Batman Movie With Robert Pattinson
Recently it was revealed that Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson was set to star as DC's caped crusader in Matt Reeves' The Batman. There's plenty of hype around who else could star in the film, with the Bat Signal being shone brightly at any potential Catwoman actresses. Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to proclaim that she could be purrfect for the role.
Latest rumours suggest that Catwoman will be one of six or seven villains that would face Bruce in the next instalment of the Batfranchise. There hasn't been a lack of high-profile names thrown into the ring with Kristen Stewart, Vanessa Hudgens and Aubrey Plaza named so far, mainly by fans. Despite the intense speculation, Warner Bros. are keeping tight lipped about who will play the role of Selina Kyle.
One of Nicki Minaj's fans took to Twitter to suggest that she would be great for the role and she was quick to reply with: "I'm ready. Ha!"
Now we're not saying that the hasty response is her officially applying to don the PVC suit, but we wouldn't blame her for wanting the highly coveted role. The Batman is going to be one of the most anticipated films of the year.
Despite Ben Affleck's weird attempts at playing Batman, it hasn't stopped caped vigilantes taking the mantle in their spare time. Recently, a man dressed as the gravelly-voiced Bat to save shelter animals from euthanasia.
He wrote on his GoFundMe page: "It took me some major thinking while in the shower, but it finally hit me and I came up with a way of taking my passion of flying and combining it with my love of animals.
"As a child I looked up to the values that super heroes such as Batman reflected and thought that would be the perfect vessel to embody the spirit of goodwill.
"Thus the crazy idea of Batman4Paws was born. I would help rescue animals in need anyway I can, all while dressed as the Dark Knight himself and become a symbol for helping those in need."
He continued: "To make my dream reality, I established Batman4Paws as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organisation to rescue and transport dogs, cats, and other animals in need to furever homes, no-kill facilities, and foster homes throughout the state of Florida and beyond. Transports are done personally by me (Batman!) using any means necessary, although I prefer to fly."
Previously Anne Hathaway had a stab (or slash) at playing the saucy villain in The Dark Knight Rises and Michelle Pfeiffer clawed her way into Batman Returns.
Could Nicki Minaj be the Catwoman we've all been waiting for?
