Rihanna admitted while nothing is in the pipeline just yet, she would jump at the chance to take on a legendary role in Batman.

The 31-year-old star said she “would love� to play Poison Ivy in a Batman movie because the flamed haired villain is one of her “obsessions.�

“You know what, they didn’t call me yet. But if they did, I would love to go in and try out because Poison Ivy is one of my obsessions in life. I did it for Halloween one year, I mean come on,� she told Entertainment Tonight.

The singer and actress – who has previously appeared on the big screen in popular movies like Ocean’s 8, Battleship and Home – was surprised to find out she sparked speculation after sharing an Instagram clip of a black leather boot from her own clothing company and compared it to the Batmobile.

Responding to the rumors, she said, “Wait, did I hint anything? Oh, that?! Really?! That?! Are you serious? No that has nothing to do with Poison Ivy.�

Rihanna isn’t the only star to throw her name into the hat to play a DC Comics baddie after Guardians of the Galaxy actor Dave Bautista revealed he wants to take on the role of Clayface in a standalone movie.

“I am going to enthusiastically agree with you on that,� the actor responded after a Twitter fan suggested Bautista for the hypothetical role.

Matt Magen and his shapeshifting alter ego aren’t the first of the gallery of rogues to catch Bautista’s eye, after it was previously suggested he could play Bane opposite Robert Pattinson in Matt Reeves’ blockbuster The Batman.

Sharing an image of Bautista alongside a cartoon of the huge villain, one fan previously wrote: “I saw a YouTube video on who should play Batman’s villains in the new movies. I have to say Dave Bautista would be a good choice to play Bane.�
