Charlize Purrs About Being Catwoman

| Filed under: Film FlickersCharlize Theron

"I would be an idiot to not consider that part," she says.

An excellent point made by Charlize Theron when she was recently asked about the much rumored role of Catwoman in the next installment of Batman. Though there isn't even a script being written yet, many people in Hollywood are speculating on the addition of the sexy, villainous role to the next movie and many high-profiled names are being tossed around as candidates.

Megan Fox, Angelina Jolie and Ashley Judd have all been mentioned, but Charlize wants her crack at the femme fatale role.

She was quoted saying: "I think what has happened to that franchise is amazing. (Batman filmmaker) Chris Nolan is a genius."

We think she should get the part for two reasons. One, out of the aforementioned ladies, the only one really suited for the role is Angie and there ain't no way in hell they are going to get her. If they do, take a back-seat Charlize.

Secondly, Charlize has a strikingly beautiful resemblance to the most famous lady to don the cat-suit : Michelle Pfeiffer. We think that she'll look just as ravishing as her predecessor once did.

What do U think?

    She's gorgeous!

  2. ELUC says – reply to this


    2

    She would be awesome!
    First!



  3. 3

    Angelina all the way!!!! Megan can't act, Ashley's does not have a hot body, and Charlize is not a physical actress…..hello did anyone see Eon Flux……Angie's got it ALL - rocking bod, acting chops and mad skills as an action hero.



  4. 4

    and third she's a brilliant actress! this part couldn't just rely on beauty and killer moves, but an intelligence that i think charlize would definately bring. i root for charlize for the next installment



  5. 5

    That would be PERFECT if she was.. but I will be severely disappointed if she's not. I can't think of anyone else suitable for the role!



  6. 6

    Here kitty kitty.



  7. 7

    Anyone BUT ashley judd



  8. 8

    i think Charlize would be an excellent choice.



  9. 9

    The most famous woman to don the cat-suit was Eartha Kitt you boob :P



  10. 10

    Megan Fox, take notes. This is how you do soundbites



  11. 11

    Thats a tough one. I would think if they can't get Angie (PERFECT CHOICE), it's hard to pick between Charlize and Ashley Judd. Megan Fox, although she's beautiful and LOOKS the part, I don't think she'd deliver on the acting side of it. She'd just come across as Megan Fox as Cat Woman, where everyone else would BE cat woman.



  12. 12

    WOW I AGREE WITH PEREZ! SHE IS BEAUTIFUL AND TALENTED. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT SAY "SHE IS TOO OLD"… BUT THAT IS SEXIST! IRON MAN, BATMAN, HULK ETC, ARE ALL MIDDLE AGED. SHE LOOKS AROUND 30, WHICH IS PERFECT AGE FOR A BUSINESS WOMAN.



  13. 13

    Perez are you kidding? she is hands down the most stunning working actress today santa angie cant hold a candle to her!!



  14. 14

    and i feel like she already has athletic training from aeon flux



  15. 15

    I think they should let Charlize have a crack at it, instead of any of the other women mentioned. Yeah, Angie would play the part well but honestly I'm sick of seeing her in these kinda roles. It's time for some fresh, and beautiful, air. I vote for Charlize. :)



  16. 16

    perez should do a poll. angelina, charlize, or other



  17. 17

    I cannot believe how stupid Perez is! He's calling Michelle Pfeifer the most famous woman to put on the suit? Is he serious? Lee Meriwether-who originated the role, Eartha Kitt, and Julie Newmar. Granted, Michelle Pfeifer was the best suited RECENT actress to fill the role, but two of the three aforementioned women were FAR more noteworthy. It's yet another one of those situations where "someone" needs to get their sh*t straight.



  18. 18

    Charlize all the way. Although when catwoman is masked all you see is her eyes and mouth, and Megan Fox out of all of them has the most amazing eyes.
    That is what I remember the most about Michelle as that character, was her pretty eyes. Love Eartha Kitt's voice as catwoman.



  19. 19

    Nooo! None of the above! I love Charlize but she would be awful. Kate Beckinsale would be perfect!



  20. 20

    Charlize is smoking hot but honestly I wish that Chris Nolan would consider Michelle Phiffer, at 51 she's still unbelievably beautiful and a great actress. They could make Catwoman the ultimate cougar/eccentric if they brought her in for the new installment; Michelle OWNED that role in the 90's.



  21. 21

    yes! yes! please pick charlize. i like angelina, but she is way too frail and skinny to be catwoman. and megan fox???!!!! ya'll know what i think about that fake face bitch. so yes charlize!



  22. 22

    No onw played the role of Catwoman better than the late Eartha Mae Kitt.



  23. 23

    i think that she would make a wonderful catwoman…i just hope they get someone else to play batman, rather than christain bale..i just dont like him as the caped crusader…lol…i think charlize would bring a bit of what michelle phifer brought to the role….



  24. 24

    Megan Fox is a white trash k*nt and cannot act. Charlize, Ashley and Angie would be much better suited (no pun intended) for the role.



  25. 25

    Oh Yeah Charlize The Cat !!



  26. 26

    I would rather see Angelina take that part.



  27. 27

    As a Batman fan, I would hope that they make Selina Kyle much more Italian than Halle Berry or Michelle Pfiffer. I love Pfiffer so much as Catwoman, but with the direction that they are taking the films in, it would be lovely to see someone as dark as the films are. And someone who is friggin accurate.



  28. 28

    Charlize is a GREAT choice! I hope Nolan realizes it!



  29. 29

    AHHHH CHARLIZE COULD DO IT !!!! charlize can do anything..she's an amazing actress and soo gorg. angelina could OBVIOUSLY do it, but i dont know if she would… she's fabulous though too. i agree with previous posts that megan is beautiful but itd be known as ' megan playing catwoman ' i just dont think she's a brilliant leading lady.. just a super hot girl for eyecandy like jessica alba (only jessica is naturally gorrrgeous not surgically).. def not an A-lister based on talent. only looks.



  30. 30

    WOW CHARLIZE would be perfect for catwoman, i like angelina and ashley but definatelly charlize………………i don't like megan sox, to me she's not even an actress, she's just a BRAINLESS PRETTY FACE WITH A JUNKIE OR HOMELESS BODY know what i mean? her body looks dirty al the time and her tatoo makers look vulgar……….I JUST DON'T LIKE HER, I HATE HER.



  31. 31

    I think she's too old. lets stray away from the first batman franchise. that's why heath ledgers "the joker" was so great. lets not go for someone just ’cause she's blond and hot like the first one. talk about really lame advice perez



  32. 32

    Ugh, Megan Fox? You have to be kidding me! And Angelina is too gaunt and masculin. Charlize is much more catlike, I think she would probably do a great job. Also, she is a better actress, she has a wide range of roles, Jolie can only play the Angry Vampish asskicker.



  33. 33

    Superficial much? Let's face it, Ashley Judd and Charlize Theron are the only real actresses, Meg and Angie are just personalities. My vote is for Judd, good mix of beauty and brains. Angie is a stick figure with lips, Meg is trashy.



  34. 34

    megan fox,please no!!!!!!totally overrated and stupid as bread.



  35. 35

    Charlize is definately the sexiest of all the ladies mentioned!!!
    And the best actress!



  36. 36

    team charlize! please please please no meghan fox or angelina jolie… it would ruin the franchise for me :-(



  37. 37

    "the only one really suited for the role is Angie and there ain't no way in hell they are going to get her."

    Why? Will she be too busy shooting Tomb Raider 4? It's not like Catwoman is a role that she'd turn down. She may be super famous. But, that hasn't prevented her from making a LOT of poor decisions about roles. Catwoman may, in fact, end up being one of the more legit roles she could play.



  38. 38

    Love Charlize but Angie is the obvious first pick - Angelina would make the most awesome catwoman!



  39. 39

    Now here's a casting idea I can get behind! Rather her than Angelina.



  40. 40

    I think Megan Fox would be perfect for that part.. i just SEE her there.. Angelina is too cold for that part.. Ashley too sweet, Charlize not aggresive looking enough…



  41. 41

    So pretty



  42. 42

    Yes, she resembles Michelle, but I think that Charlize IS pretty- just not as pretty as I would imagine catwoman. I imagine amazingly sexy and super super pretty! My vote is for Fox!



  43. 43

    stop the new world order. research william cooper, aaron russo
    google "The Bohemian Grove"
    you and your friends could save the world. please help spread the word.
    god bless you



  44. 44

    CHARLIZE!!!!!!!! megan fox cant open a movie and angelina aint gonna do it



  45. 45

    I actually think Charlize is the best choice of any of those ladies! Angelina is wayyyy too skinny for a role like that. Catwoman needs to have curves.

  46. bash2 says – reply to this


    46

    I hate to say this but I thinK M. Fox would be the best. She's the youngest, hottest/dirtiest, and could pull of Cat Woman with some training. I just saw Jennifer's Body last night and she did a really decent job of being evil — something that Cat woman would definitely be. I think it would be humbling for her and her voice/eyes would definitely be chilling!!!



  47. 47

    Re: jp1988 – …yeah…MICHELLE!



  48. 48

    Ashley Judd give me a break. Anyone of the other three would be good choices, there all young enough to be able to do the part for a number of years.



  49. 49

    The only reason Ashley Judd wouldn't be a good choice is age, I think she has the chops. Charlize has my vote of those mentioned though, even over Jolie.



  50. 50

    I love Charlize!!! I absolute hate Megan Fox, if she came out in that movie I would not watch it!!!



  51. 51

    Re: Lucky_MI – Michelle was not the most recent actress to play Catwoman! It was Halle Berry.



  52. 52

    Michelle Pfeiffer could totally still pull off this role. I say Michelle Pfeiffer… otherwise, getting a really intense Asian female to be Catwoman would be awesome!!



  53. 53

    All of the women mentioned except for megan fox are way too old to be cat woman. Charlize Theron is no exception! Plus Selina is pretty much Batman's soul mate. Nolan should look at younger women who people will believe hottie Christian Bale has the hots for. This is one of the best love-hate relationships in comics and the role of cat woman shouldn't be taken lightly. In terms of a blonde catwoman Nolan should be thinking more Rosamund Pike, Amanda Seyfried or Rachel McAdams and for brunettes Keri Russel, Natalie Dormer.

  54. Jaded says – reply to this


    54

    Re: Chicklette – I agree, and any wise and reputable gay will agree as well. The Catwoman line goes Eartha Kitt, Julie Newmar and then maybe Michelle Pfiffer. Although regardless of how bad the movie was I still have to say that HAlle Berry was a pretty famous Catwoman.



  55. 55

    DEFINITELY Charlize!!! SHE CAN ACT and that's what you need to come through the costume. Angelina and Megan have looks but they really can't. Angelina is WAY WAY overrated. Ashley Judd can act but Charlize has those wonderful amber/green eyes that will sparkle in the black mask.



  56. 56

    Lord, no. I love Charlize Theron; I think she's a wonderful actress and gorgeous to boot, but holy hell, Catwoman does not need to be in the next Batman, especially if Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, etc., are being considered for the role. None of them are right for it. Take my word for it, I'm a life-long Catwoman fangirl. Plus, yanno, Chris Nolan has said time and again he refuses to put Catwoman in any of the Batman films.

    Personally, I'd rather see, say, Poison Ivy. Or Vicky Vale. Hell, even Harley Quinn, though it wouldn't make much sense and I'd likely argue against whichever actress was rumored to play her this week.

    BUT THAT'S JUST ME.

    Hehe, this really long rant brought to you by lack of sleep and rly empty belly.



  57. 57

    Get Michelle to do it again!!!



  58. 58

    Well that settles it, it's either Angie or Charlize. Megan Fox is a joke as a serious actress and Ashley Judd is washed up. My vote is for Charlize all the way!



  59. 59

    Bring crazy back. Sean Young for Catwoman.



  60. 60


  61. 61

    I think she would be perfect for the role!



  62. 62

    Re: Lucky_MI – Um, someone needs to get their shit together? is that person YOU? Cause if you had your shit together you would know that the actress who originated the role is NOT Lee Meriwether but Julie Newmar. And out of all those ladies who played catwoman I'd say Julie Newmar and Michelle Pfeiffer were the most popular in the role; with Pfeiffer being the BEST. She took the character to a whole new level. Eartha had the voice. And Lee Meriwether was boring and bland as hell; just horrible. Have you fucking seen her? B-L-A-N-D. And i won't get into Halle Berry. As beautiful and popular as she is, she was horrible in the role.

  64. 64

    What about Angie Harmon?



  65. 65

    bring michelle pfeiffer back.. she could easily play the bitter elderly woman, who's already had 8 lives and is now living his 9th trying to get back at Batman.. Hell to the yes ! These younger starlets have nothing compared to her :D



  66. 66

    ANGELINA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  67. 67

    i think charlze is the only one suited for the role, i dont like angelina jolie, i love megan fox, but i dont think shes suited for the role, and ashley judd? yawn.
    charlize all the way (:



  68. 68

    WE WANT ASHLEY JUDD!!!!



  69. 69

    Re: britnyrioux – Abso-friggin-lutely! Kate is the BEST choice for the role, hands down. Hair dying aside, anyone who knows anything about the Batman comics, and the role of Catwoman, knows that Selena Kyle is a dark brunette (if not black) maned woman, not blonde. I liked Michelle in the role, she did a great job, but she never looked right for the part (other than in costume). Kate IS Catwoman, and perfect for the role. Though, honestly, I don't think Catwoman will even be in the movie, so it won't matter much. Angelina is to old and WAY overxposed, so she would simply overshadow the role. Megan is hot, and looks the part, but I doubt she'd bring any depth. I like Charlize, but she isn't right either. Ashley would have been great a few years ago, but not really anymore.



  70. 70

    Re: Manda756 – Sorry, but Heath Ledger's "Joker" sucked. The only reason the movie got the fame it did, and his portrayal got such buzz was because he died. Otherwise, it would never have become the hype it was. I loved Heath as an actor, and had great respect for him, but he was no Joker, and it pains me to say that in light of his passing. He played a great psycho, but he was not the Joker. Two-Face however, was fantastic in that movie (the best rendition ever done of him), and it was a crime that they killed him off when he could have been so much more in future movies.



  71. 71

    To whoever said Charlize is too old for the part and too old for Christian Bale- Catwoman/Selina Kyle in the comics is in her late thirties. Charlize is 34! And Christian Bale is 36…



  72. 72

    Hmmm… I owuld totally agree on Angelina being the best choice. God the vision of her in a skintight leather outfit…makes my blood boil and I'm straight! Lol….but Charlize would make an awesome character too. Although I kind of have to agree about the eyes thing with the mask. Charlize doesn't have striking eyes to stand out but to be fair, neither does Ange. Megan is not ready for a role of this magnitude yet. She needs more varieties of roles to see where she will end up. And Michele Pfeiffer would rock again. But not sure if she wants to go there now. Definetly NOT Ashley Judd. Nothing against her, but she's too tomboy for this role. As long as no one mentions KStew…I'm good. Lol….



  73. 73

    I LIKE IT! Either her or Foxy.



  74. 74

    Re: Dick Gozinya – Soooo not true. Angelina is an amazing actress. Megan is not yet. Angeline, Charlize and Ashley ALL have the acting standards that would work.



  75. 75

    Re: Unbelievable! – OMG…the HELL YOU SAY! There was no part in ANY of the movies that was better played then Heath's role. He was hands down, AMAZING. I am sorry you feel he wasn't. Regardless of his tragedy, I would think the same if he was alive now. At least you picked the right moniker for your opinion.



  76. 76

    Re: Unbelievable! – And they didn't kill off Twoface. It was made to look like he would be coming back.



  77. 77

    BULLSHIT! Michelle Pfeiffer was not only stunningly gorgeous with the perfect facial bone structure to pull the role off, she also has class and elegance. Did I mention tons of acting talent? Charlize Theron is nothing but a narcissist faker with zero personality and the beauty and charisma of a pool ball. She only won the damn oscar because she became a fat ugly lesbian in that movie. Catwoman is going to suck with her, maybe even worse than with Halle Berry. Trust me, I'm not the only one who feels this way about Charlize.



  78. 78

    oh i would love her!!

    i mean, ange really would be best for the part.. i hate to say that cuz charlize is my fav. but she would do so well!



  79. 79

    Re: Unbelievable!

    nooooo way. heath was a great joker! to each their own…



  80. 80

    i love michelle pfeiffers catwoman! charlize theron couldnt pull off aeon flux, i dont think she would make a good catwoman….she just doesnt seem sweet and sexy enough, she just seems sweet….sorry! MY OPINION!



  81. 81

    I would rather see Charlize in this role over Angelina ANY DAY. Angelina is overexposed. Just thinking of her in this role makes me sick to my stomach, and Megan Fox can't hold water.



  82. 82

    Bring back Michelle! Ultimate Cougar



  83. 83

    idk who this is….. she's pretty but megan fox or angelina should do it!!!



  84. 84

    Why don't they consider Natalie Portman - she is oh so talented, sexy, beautiful and very cat-like!



  85. 85

    I hope it goes to Angelina. Team Jolie.



  86. 86

    Re: Dick Gozinya – Yeah, it was Jolie's personality that won her an Oscar and a Golden Globe.



  87. 87

    i normally don't care for charlize that much, but i could definitely see her in this role. i love the reinvented batman movies, and she would be an excellent casting choice!



  88. 88

    ANGELINA



  89. 89

    Re: MyOpinionOnly – I really wish (and seriously hope) that were true. Unfortunately, right after the film, many people were speculating that Two-Face might not be dead. I was hoping the same. However, the studio people released a part of the script to put the speculation to bed. It said "Two-Face lies at the bottom of the building dead" (or something to that effect, but it used the explicit term "dead"). I hope that they do indeed bring him back, because the movie itself didn't make it completely clear that he was, so they might have an opening to do so.



  90. 90

    she would be the best choice. megan cant act and is very annoying. angelina is too old and washed up looking. plus she is annoying. ashley judd is the worst choice because she is extremely annoying and simply isnt specail enough. there is nothing remotely above average about her and catwoman needs to be above average. i wouldnt mind seen charlize as catwoman.



  91. 91

    I say fuck Chalize, Jolie, magan fox.
    Just bring back Michelle Pfeiffer she can still pull it out off. Sure this others could pull off the whole sexy aaspect of the character but Pfeiffer's still around, who says she can't do it again! These others would just be a copycat performance.

    And if not Michelle then Judd, because her attitude could match up to what Bale brings to his batman attitude,she knows how to bring that darkness into the character, and she's a real woman not just a pretty face playing dress up.A real actress. A professional.

    -BRING MICHELLE PFEIFFER BACK.!



  92. 92

    she's it!



  93. 93

    Angelina is too big a name, she might draw attention away from the movie as a whole that it might become the 'Angelina Jolie as Catwoman Movie.' The challenge would be toning down 'Angelina Jolie' and amping up 'Catwoman as a character in the Batman Universe.' As far as physical appearances are concerned, when she dons the Cat suit half her face might be covered, but her lips would just give her away.

    Maybe if Catwoman was given the same treatment as TwoFace in the last movie, you know? The focus was more on his psycho-socio origins and human side. There's going to be a lot of acting instead of whip-cracking if this is the direction that the character is going to take. It's not necessary to physically and aurally act like a cat to be considered feline, mind you.

    Angelina Jolie if the focus is more on Catwoman.
    Charlize Theron if the focus is more on Selina Kyle.



  94. 94

    she's definitely a better choice than angelina jolie. what's so great about 'angie' anyway?

    and megan fox? what are you? retarded?



  95. 95

    The teal blue color is "purrfect" on her…



  96. 96

    NOLAN IS NOT DOING THE BATMAN FROM THE FIRST MOVIES THAT WERE MADE!!!!!!!!

    HAVEN'T ANY OF YOU GOTTEN IT YET?? THIS IS THE BATMAN FROM THE REAL COMIC BOOKS. THERON IS NOT SELENA KYLE. NEITHER ARE ANY OF THE ONES YOU MENTIONED EVEN CLOSE.

    THE ONLY ONE WHO SHOULD BE CONSIDERED IS MARION COTTILLARD.

    AT THIS POINT CATWOMEN HAS BECOME OVERLY DISCUSSED AND SPECULATED TO OUR EXHAUSTION AS FANS. I'M VERY SURE NOLAN AND TEAM WILL NOW NOT EVEN CONSIDER A STORY WITH CATWOMAN. I AM ALSO SURE WE WILL ALL SEE VILLAINS WHO ARE UNCONVENTIONAL OR BRAND NEW.

    YOU CAN BANK ON IT.



  97. 97

    BATMAN AND SELENA KYLE AKA CATWOMAN ARE CONTEMPORARIES IN AGE.

    BALE IS 35. DO THE MATH IDIOTS.

    CATWOMAN HAS BEEN SCRUBBED BY NOW. REST ASSURED. NOLAN IS NOT AN IDIOT, AND ALL YOUR SPECULATION IS IDIOTIC.



  98. 98

    can u be gay and be Catwoman?



  99. 99

    1) wtf ashley judd? how is she in the running…take her weird and old ass out of it right now please
    2) charlize is a thousand times prettier than that hag michelle pfeiffer
    3) i'd LOVE to see angelina play the part…if not her i'd love to see charlize or megan as well..but i dunno megan is hot and sexy and all but i can't see her pulling it off like angelina and charlize could



  100. 100

    Milla Jovovich. Sienna Guillory. Selma Blair. Kate Beckinsale.
