Hollywood actress Charlize Theron has become the latest star to eye the role of Catwoman after she revealed her desperation to sink her claws into a forthcoming Batman flick.

The Oscar-winning actress insists she would love the chance to transform into the feline femme fatale, offering her name up for casting directors, Contactmusic reported.

"I think what has happened to that franchise is amazing. (Batman filmmaker) Chris Nolan is a genius. I would be an idiot to not consider that part," the South African beauty said.

Earlier, several actresses, including Megan Fox, Angelina Jolie and Ashley Judd, have been tipped to step into the famous PVC catsuit.

Although Hollywood bosses have announced there isn't even a script in the works for the superhero sequel yet. It is being reported that the yet-untitled project is expected to hit cinema screens sometime in 2011.
