Charlize Theron would love to “kick a*s” as Catwoman.
The Hollywood actress is thrilled to learn she is in the running to play the super-villain alongside Christian Bale and Michael Caine in the upcoming sequel to Batman blockbuster ‘The Dark Knight’.
She said: “It’s news to me, but that's kick-a*s news. I like that... I think that what has happened to that franchise is amazing, and director Chris Nolan is a genius. So I would be an idiot to not consider that.”
If the 34-year-old starlet accepts the role, she will be following in the footsteps of Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry, who have both donned the iconic leather catsuit on the big screen.
It was reported last month that Megan Fox was to be offered the part, but Warner Bros. moved quickly to insist no casting decisions have yet been made for the film which is based on the DC comic books.
A representative for the studio said: "It's a rumour. It's not true. There is no script yet.”
Other actresses linked to the role include Angelina Jolie and Rachel Weisz.
