Rumors are going strong this morning with word that Megan Fox is in the running to play Catwoman. The comic book character best known for being Batman’s nemesis and sometimes girlfriend, was last played by Oscar winner Halle Berry. Catwoman was a horrible film, I won’t deny it, but sources are claiming that the Transformers star may be up for a revamp of the role. More below.
In a hilarious report from MTV UK, they’re claiming that Fox has landed the role of Selina Kyle aka Catwoman in the third Batman film. The upcoming movie will be a follow up to director Christopher Nolan’s critical and commercial hit, The Dark Knight. The last actress to play the character in a live action Batman movie was Michelle Pfeiffer in 1992′s Batman Returns. According to the source, Fox’s take on the villainess will be a lot more “sinister” and have “a darker edge.”
The film is rumored to be released in 2011 with shooting scheduled for sometime next year. If this rumor is true, which I highly doubt, I would personally attack Nolan and Warner Bros with Catwoman’s claws. I’m sorry but Ms. Fox is not the greatest actress, and Nolan is known for putting together ensembles filled with talented people. I’m not sure she could hold her own against the likes of Christian Bale or Michael Caine. My respect for this franchise would go in the toilet if they cast her. I’m not trying to be negative, I’m just being honest.
What would you think of Megan Fox as Catwoman?
