Rachel Weisz as Catwoman in Batman Begins 3?

24 Comments

While Christopher Nolan is still dancing around the idea of returning for “Batman Begins 3″ (is he? isn’t he? how much money will it take?), rumors about who the next movie’s villains will be (and who will be playing said villains) continue to abound. The latest has Rachel Weisz being Warner Bros.’ top choice to play Catwoman. At least this is the news from Ted Casablanca over at E! Online. The last time Weisz’s name was thrown around a big-time comic book property it was “Sin City 2″, and the other name in the running for said part was Angelina Jolie — who, coincidentally, is also the odds on favorite to play Catwoman in “Batman Begins 3″ should Catwoman actually appear in the sequel. Catfight, anyone?

Weisz, thank heaven, according to insiders who are currently working on the Warner’s production, which hasn’t even been officially announced yet. But Weisz’s name is so early on, not even Weisz’s publicist claims to have knowledge of the casting notion. “Tell them to call her agent!” Weisz’s rep screamed. Will do, ’cause if this damn role goes to Angie (as one major returning Batman actor would like), we’re just going to scream.

If done right, Catwoman as one of the villains (or anti-hero, maybe) in the next Batman film could work. As long as Nolan doesn’t give her something idiotic like cat powers, I mean. Or make her into some vamping S&M freak with a whip. That didn’t work out so good.

And as you can see from the pic below, Rachel Weisz isn’t exactly a stranger to tight, form-fitting uniforms. Meow.

    Please no Angelina. That would ruin the movie if they did it.

      Angelina would be the prefect fit. She would play a very enticing Catwomen and could give Bats a really fight. But she would be a great Kyle.

    i agree with ultraman. Angie will play catwoman as an angie catwoman, not a bad thing for most movies. But for the high standard set for these batman movies it wil be bad. I think Ms Weisz will give a catwoman character a better chance. or even cherize theron if she was nominated.

    I don’t mind seeing Weisz or Angelina in this movie but don’t even get me or anyone started on Halle Berry.
