Nicki Minaj Wants to Play Catwoman in New Batman Movie
There is a new Batman movie on the way and Nicki Minaj wants parts.
Director Matt Reeves' forthcoming The Batman recently tapped actor Robert Pattinson to star as the famous superhero, but the role of his sometimes lover/sometimes-enemy Catwoman is still open—and Minaj thinks she'd make the perfect fit.
In an Instagram post advertising her forthcoming role in the Angry Birds 2 movie, New York DJ Superstar Jay left a congratulatory comment and suggested that the "Megatron" rapper go out for the role of Catwoman next. Minaj was on board.
"Next thing big movies got to see you play the next catwoman dope congrats," Jay wrote, to which Minaj replied, "I'm ready. Ha!"
Previously, the role has been filled by actresses among the likes of Anne Hathaway, Halle Berry and perhaps most famously, Michelle Pfeiffer.
In related news, Minaj, who recently toured Europe with opening act Juice Wrld, canceled her scheduled show in Saudi Arabia after learning about the human rights issues the country is facing.
“After careful reflection I have decided to no longer move forward with my scheduled concert at Jeddah World Fest," Minaj said in a statement to the Associated Press. "While I want nothing more than to bring my show to fans in Saudi Arabia, after better educating myself on the issues, I believe it is important for me to make clear my support for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community and freedom of expression."
