The 31-year-old star said she â€œwould loveâ€� to play Poison Ivy in a Batman movie because the flamed haired villain is one of her â€œobsessions.â€�
â€œYou know what, they didnâ€™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,â€� she told Entertainment Tonight.
The singer and actress â€“ who has previously appeared on the big screen in popular movies like Oceanâ€™s 8, Battleship and Home â€“ 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, â€œWait, did I hint anything? Oh, that?! Really?! That?! Are you serious? No that has nothing to do with Poison Ivy.â€�
Rihanna isnâ€™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.
â€œI am going to enthusiastically agree with you on that,â€� the actor responded after a Twitter fan suggested Bautista for the hypothetical role.
Matt Magen and his shapeshifting alter ego arenâ€™t the first of the gallery of rogues to catch Bautistaâ€™s eye, after it was previously suggested he could play Bane opposite Robert Pattinson in Matt Reevesâ€™ blockbuster The Batman.
Sharing an image of Bautista alongside a cartoon of the huge villain, one fan previously wrote: â€œI saw a YouTube video on who should play Batmanâ€™s villains in the new movies. I have to say Dave Bautista would be a good choice to play Bane.â€�
