Having a worldwide $440 million two week gross and being the best film of the year has gotten everyone talking about who will will play what in the next Dark Knight film. So it comes as no surprise that big stars are already being rumored to play possible villains despite the fact that there is no script. Today, both the Telegraph UK and MTV News report that Angelina Jolie has asked to play Catwoman in the third Dark Knight film. If you need confirmation, here’s Ms Julie Newmar who played Catwoman once in the 60’s.
Ms Newmar, 74, said: “Angelina would own the part. My industry friends tell me she has already made enquiries about the role. I can understand how it would pique her interest. Catwoman is Batman’s one true love.”
She added: “She’s tremendously popular with women because she’s both a heroine and a villainess.”
Other stars rumored to be in the next film include Johnny Depp as The Riddler and Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Penguin. If Christopher Nolan was smart, he’d cast Britney Spears too. She can be one of the Penguin’s henchman. You know, those blubbery little guys with huge thighs that stomp around an ice float and chase baby penguins to eat? Or am I thinking about elephant seals? Whatever, that would work too.
