Nicki Minaj wants her next big role on the silver screen to be the cat's meow. 

Wednesday, Nicki subtly revealed on Instagram that she's ready to channel her inner feline as Catwoman for the forthcoming The Batman film, after New York DJ Superstar Jay suggested that the "Megatron" rapper try her hand at it. 

"Next thing big movies got to see you play the next catwoman dope congrats," Jay wrote in the comments section of a video post pushing the rapper's role in Angry Birds 2.

Minaj appeared to be on board, replying, "I'm ready. Ha!"

2021's The Batman has already tapped Robert Pattinson to star as the famous superhero, but the role of his part-time lover and frenemy is still up for grabs.  Then again, the plot of The Batman hasn't been publicly revealed, so it's not known if Catwoman will appear in it at all.

Previously, Catwoman has been portrayed om film by Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry and, most recently, by Anne Hathaway in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises.
