“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.”
