Well there's your proof, new Batman in the works and Megan Fox as Catwoman (The Sun - seemingly the source).


Megan Fox has apparently signed up to play Catwoman in the next Batman film.

The Transformers sex symbol will thrill fans by donning a tight PVC catsuit to play Selina Kyle in director Christopher Nolan's next instalment about the comic book hero, The Sun reports.

Megan, 23, follows in the footsteps of Michelle Pfeiffer, who played Catwoman in Batman Returns, and Halle Berry, who played the vixen in flop spin-off movie Catwoman.

Christian Bale will return as millionaire Bruce Wayne/the Caped Crusader and Sir Michael Caine will be back as his faithful butler Alfred.

Filming is due to begin next year with the movie expected to hit screens in 2011.

 The Press Association  
 
I'm not sure what I feel about this one. Never been convinced she can act so great, although I have no doubt she'll be one of the better looking "Catwomen". 
 
EDIT: Sources seem to be echoing the Sun as the source, I had originally seen it on Fox News, therefore legitimacy is a little hazy at the moment. This will no doubt be addressed soon.

I'm probably wrong, but wasn't the Sun known for making up stories... like a lot?

If it's real....why...she can't act...at all..

#4 Posted by pornstorestiffi (4909 posts) -

Lets hope she has no spoken lines in that movie.

@Benjaminvdv: Edited with another, more reliable source as well as The Sun link. It's legit as far as I can see. 
 
EDIT: All sources point to the Sun. A little sketchy at best. It'll come to light soon no doubt.

You have got to be kidding me. Transformers is one thing but the the most awesome Batman movies ever? Why?

#7 Posted by Manhattan_Project (2136 posts) -

Woot!!! Great movie + Megan Fox = Win!!

#8 Posted by Delta_Ass (3274 posts) -

The Sun... well that's rock solid evidence...

#9 Posted by CoverlessTech (737 posts) -

Well that just ruined the next Batman flick for me. Begins was awesome and Dark Knight was good, R.I.P Batman films.

Why? HAVE YOU SEEN HER?! Sure, shes an idiot with a black hole for a heart. But , shes pretty good looking. And i imagine thats all they were going for in a catwoman. As long as she doesnt talk.....
#11 Posted by Druminator (1676 posts) -

Oh great, see ya next Batman movie! That's worse than Johnny Depp as Riddler.

#12 Posted by hamlaser (230 posts) -

Megan Fox has a shitty personality and her characters always seem extremely boring and/or brain dead.

#13 Posted by Creamypies (4059 posts) -

Well it's good to know that I can watch the next Batman movie on mute and still enjoy it.

#14 Posted by Gearhead (2251 posts) -

 Megan Fox in latex makes me happy. Her acting next to Christian Bale, not so much.

#15 Posted by zombie2011 (4972 posts) -

Noooo. God i can't stand Megan Fox, plus she looks young. So is Catwoman gonna be a teenaged crime fighter in the next Batman?

#16 Edited by JokerClown88 (1051 posts) -

Megan Fox can't be Catwoman.  She is too friggen young as she is supposed to be a love interest to both Bruce Wayne AND Batman.  Ill belive it when and if it gets anounced by Nolan himself. 
 
My choice for Catwoman would be Angelina Jolie. At least she can act. 
 
Scarlet Johansson would also be a good choice because she doesn't look like shes still in High School.

Good question, she does look like shes 18 or so lol.
#18 Posted by Damian (1538 posts) -

The plus side: If she dies during post-production people will all think she's the best Catwoman ever.

#19 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11595 posts) -

THIS CAN'T BE REAL! I REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE IT!
 
Know what would be a pretty good drinking game? Once Transformers 2 comes out on DVD, drink every time the camera focuses on Megan Fox's chest or rear. You will probably be stone drunk by the end of the movie. Alternatively, every time she says something stupid, drink. You will also be stone drunk by the end of the movie.

Fuck it she's hot just get hammered and go into the theatre

#21 Posted by baldus (82 posts) -

This cannot be true.  I really doubt they would cast her... She's a terrible actress.  

#22 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

Lets just hope they cover up her mutant THUMBS!

#23 Posted by hamlaser (230 posts) -

Mila Kunis would be a better fit

#24 Posted by agentboolen (1760 posts) -

Yea she might have to take a few more acting lessons for this role.  If I was going to just shout out a name it would probably be Angilina Jolie, I think she would be a interesting Catwoman.

"Pretty good looking" doesn't qualify you to act good. If that is all you are looking for in a Catwoman then go watch Catwoman with Halle Berry on loop for the rest of your life.
 
Catwoman is a complex character that really needs a strong actress to push home the crazy that created her. Go watch Batman Returns and the pay attention to when Michelle Pfeiffer turns into Catwoman, Megan Fox would BUTCHER that role.

I personally do not mind her lack of acting skills for obvious reasons
#27 Posted by Meowayne (6084 posts) -

Oh god no.
 


 
That's just terrible.
 Batman anticipation -90%.

They might as well have Arnold back as Mr. Freeze

Bud, i said shes an idiot, not sure how that implys that i think she is a really good actor..... shes horrible actually 
 
And when i say thats all THEY were going for in a catwoman, i mean the people who are making the movie. Once again, how that implys that im involved, im not sure. I think that halle berry's version was way over sexualized so i'd rather they (I mean the movie makers themselves, NOT ME.) not try that again. 
 
Did you even read my post?

I do, I don't care if she's hot, she would completely butcher catwoman.
#32 Posted by get2sammyb (6412 posts) -

No. No. No. No. No. That would just totally market the new movie as "hey teenage frat boys, our movie's pretty rad... it's got fighting and hot chicks in it". I've always thought the new Batman movies had more substance than that.
 
Not to mention Megan Fox is a terrible actress.
 
I would rather Rachel Weisz. Someone a bit mature looking. Although I guess she's not the best actress either really.
 
But still... Eww Megan Fox. Please no.

#33 Posted by Karn (690 posts) -

Well, I guess the legacy stops at the Dark Knight.

#34 Posted by CoverlessTech (737 posts) -
@Mikemcn: You sounded like you where justifying it with "As long as she doesn't talk....". Thus you might as well not even include the character.   
 
"as long as she doesn't talk..." is just the attitude that allows these shitty people to ruin good movies.
#35 Posted by Cerza (1653 posts) -

Just reading this makes my head hurt. Megan Fox is Catwoman... no no no no no no no NO!!!!
 
It seems the Batman curse continues. It's all downhill after the second movie...

#36 Posted by get2sammyb (6412 posts) -
@CL60: Exactly. And I mean no ones saying they can't cast an attractive Cat Woman. Heck, Cat Woman should be attractive. But you know, I'm sure there are plenty of actresses who fit the bill of being able to act, and you know, look good.
#37 Posted by m1k3 (1326 posts) -

Seriously all she did in the transformers movies was bend over slightly open her mouth

#38 Posted by Dethfish (3638 posts) -

I really hate how an actress can basically get any part she wants (plus a lot of money) just for being hot.

Had that been in a porn flick, that would have been fine, only slightly wouldn't be enough. 
 
Shitty comment for my 1k post, but whatever.

Aww! That makes me sad because Megan Fox = poop

#41 Posted by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -

This casting decision deserves:
 

#42 Posted by jkz (4008 posts) -

Oh god......please, no. This series has been littered with good actors, don't throw in the metaphorical turd that pulls the rest back with slow motion running and tearing clothing....please.

#43 Posted by CoverlessTech (737 posts) -

Come to think of it Christian Bale would probably kill her if they cast her next to him.

#44 Posted by CitizenKane (10506 posts) -

Unless Chris Nolan sees something in her that no one else has, there is no way this is true.

Sad news.  
 
As a Batfan i never found Catwoman to be an interesting villain, and now that Megan Fox has to play her.....*cries*

#48 Posted by Griddler (3344 posts) -

I thought she was already Lara Croft

#49 Posted by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

I think Nolan's ready to move past Batman, what better way to to seal a coffin than hiring none-actors in leading roles?

But Halle Berry isn't good looking.
