Despite writer David Goyer saying he doesn’t want Catwoman in the third Batman film, there are rumours whipping around that Angelina Jolie could be up for the role. Well according to a 74 year old woman she could be anyway.
Julie Newmar, Hollywood’s most iconic “Catwoman,” thinks Angelina Jolie is the right choice to slip into her skintight costume – once the steamy actress is back in fighting form.
“Angelina would own the part,” said Newmar.
“My industry friends tell me [she] has made inquiries about the role,” added the actress, who played Catwoman in the original “Batman” TV series starring Adam West.
Jolie probably would ‘own the role’ and has stared in a couple of action movie in her time so the stunts and whipping wouldn’t be a problem. However, if Angelina Jolie and The Dark Knight have a Google Fight she only loses by 3 million. Does Christopher Nolan really want an actress that will almost be as big as the film itself? We know Warner Bros weren’t too happy with Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise taking away some shine off the Batman Begins release. What if Jolie gets pregnant again? Or what if her and Christian Bale get together, leaving Brad Pitt to do all the magazine interviews and telling everyone he’s ‘doing fine’?
I think if Catwoman were to make an appearance (which I doubt she will) then she should be played by Miss Eva Green.
If not give Helen Mirren a call. She’ll do it.
