While we barely know much yet about next year’s The Dark Knight, the rumor mill appears to have started for the third – and presumably final – film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman series. That’s right, in spite of the miserable Catwoman starring Halle Berry, Nolan is reportedly toying with the idea of featuring the sexy cat-burglar in the final instalment.
Can anyone gimme a yee-ha?
From the moment I saw Batman Begins, I hoped we might see Catwoman in one of the sequels. Watching the brilliant take Nolan had on the characters of Ra’s Al Ghul and The Scarecrow, it seemed like a no-brainer to feature such a complex, real-world character like Selina Kyle. However, the rumors were that Warner Bros were reluctant to use the character again so soon after the shameful flop of 2004.
Thankfully, if the rumor proves true, the studio will have come to their senses and realized that the failure of Catwoman had very little to do with the character. Rather, it was simply a shocking interpretation and an embarrassingly bad script.
I don’t wanna get my hopes up but… man… if this turns out to be true… I’m one excited little bat-fan right now! Heck… I still hold out hope for a Tim Burton-directed Catwoman film with Michelle Pfeiffer. What can I say? I love her.
Oh, yeah… and The Joker may return, Two-Face will be a major player, film may be out in 2011… yada, yada, yada. Who cares? Catwoman, people… Catwoman!
