Gabourey Sidibe Wants to Play Batman

“Empire’s” Gabourey Sidibe revealed at Variety’s Cannes Lion studio which superhero she’d like to play. After throwing out options like Superman and Amanda Waller, she settled on the Caped Crusader himself — Batman.

“Batman doesn’t have any superpowers. He’s not an alien, he’s a straight up human who happens to be rich,” she explained. “He’s like Super Privileged Man. He’s like White Privilege Man. But he’s got all these tools, and a super dark sense of being. He’s such a creep, and I feel I’m Batman because I’m a creep.”
