Angelina Jolie to play Catwoman

Angelina JolieThe unprecedented success of The Dark Knight has lead movie execs to reinvent Batman’s most delectable nemesis in a new Catwoman movie. Angelina Jolie is set to star as the feline villain and is reportedly in the final stages of negotiations with the studio. Julie Newmar, who played Catwoman in the Batman TV series, has given Jolie her stamp of approval. “Angelina would own the part. She is tremendously popular with women because she’s both a heroine and a villainess.” Jolie would be following in the footsteps of Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Barry who have both slipped on the famous cat-suit.

    …YUMMY!!! Pfeiffer, Berry…now Angelina. Can’t complain to that…GREAT choice!!!

    Catwoman should be in the third Batman movie.

  3. Dave • August 1, 2008 @ 9:32 AM

    she’s a great choice for that role

    Great another crappy catwoman movie. they should have never made the one with Halle Barry. Like come on, and they better not include her in the thired Batman movie.

    I absolutely agree with jake kon. I can’t see having another Catwoman movie can be any good. I haven’t even seen the Halle Barry version, nor do I care to, but I heard nothing bud bad things about that movie. I suppose I shouldn’t judge something I haven’t seen yet, but really…

    And personally, I think having Catwoman in the new Batman installments would ruin it. It’s doing so well for a reason. Now, I’d rather see Catwoman in the new Batman installments than Robin anyday, but still. Ixnay on the Atwoman Cay.

    I think its interesting everyone is saying that using certain people in the movie is gonna cheapen the series. in this current Batman saga I’m pretty sure they have already have it mapped out who is gonna be in the next movie, and like the dark knight they are gonna have it written well, people need to stop going with this down attitude and slandering the movie before they are out. Catwoman and robin are in a core of the Batman saga, I’m expecting them to come, and although people having little tantrums on how they will ruin it, how would you know?

    My bet is if they are gonna introduce Catwoman it will be a played to par or they’ll axe it til it does work.

    I think Angelina Jolie would play a great catwoman – she would be just as good, if not better, than Michelle Pfeiffer. She can play the sweet innocent woman, but then also the sexy bad-ass. Obviously the article says that she will be making a Catwoman movie, but if they did have her in the next Batman, they would write her character in in a tasteful manner no doubt, which would work perfectly with the movie. I’m two thumbs up for her as Catwoman!

    Who care’s about Catwomen I heard Johnny Depp has been approached to play the Riddler now that is a Batman worth seeing.

  9. paris • August 1, 2008 @ 1:03 PM

    exactly who cares about catwomen. Johny Depp playing the riddler in the new batman would be awesome. must say Heath Ledger was Amazing in the movie. he was extraordinary in this movie. A+

  10. Nancy • August 1, 2008 @ 5:07 PM

    Yes TJ, I heard as well that Johnny Depp was approached to play Riddler in the NEXT Batman movie and that they would also really like to sign Philip Seymour Hoffman to play the Penguin. Sound like awesome choices to me!

  11. tammy • August 1, 2008 @ 6:04 PM

    I think Angelina Jolie will be the perfect catwoman and Johnny Depp would be great as riddler I like Seymour Hoffman but I think they should use someone short for the penguin…how about Tom Cruise…not…lol

  12. Lorna • August 2, 2008 @ 2:21 AM

    I think Hoffman would be perfect as “Mr. Freeze”.
    Angelina is about as good as it gets for “Catwoman”, but if not her, perhaps Diana Rigg.
    Good luck to those working in casting!

  13. Anonymous • August 2, 2008 @ 2:45 PM

    Sarah Jessica Parker would be the best Catwoman EVER.

  14. Big Mac • August 3, 2008 @ 9:04 AM

    Why re-cast when Halle Berry is available?

  15. tributegirl • August 3, 2008 @ 9:41 AM

    Angelina would be great in this role, and I don’t think it will take her long to get back to her pre-pregnancy weight.

  16. Anonymous • August 3, 2008 @ 11:23 AM

    It’s alright she can play a pregnant Catwoman. I think that will be something for the fans!

  17. Johnny • August 3, 2008 @ 2:15 PM

    Okay, hold on here…
    These are great choices in Actors BUT, why destroy a good series AND why use up your resources? What I mean is, Harvey Dent (Thomas Jane)Dying? didn’t he die in Batman 3 (Batman Forever)? so I guess he dies twice… shoulda left the guy as the Punisher. “Two-Face” needed to live.
    Dark Knight was good for what it had dished out but on a thin line when it came to the story line that was supposed to tie in to the others. Wasn’t Batman Begins supposed to show how everything “began” and then “Dark Knight” following and so on? SO WTF???!?!??!
    A perfect example…
    *Superman series… brought in “Superman Returns” afterwards, GARBAGE.
    *Indiana Jones series… “Crystal Skull”, Ruined what good thing that was going on there.
    *The New “Hulk” movies was better than the last…
    *Star Wars… What was with the “Episodes”?

    We need to realise when to leave a good thing alone OR if it must be touched make sure we don’t veer off from the story… Interest is a hard thing to come by.

    There are sooooo many other Marvel and DC comics that have the Potential of being Blockbusters. Use these other famous actors, even brand new actors for those movies instead PLEASE!!!

    Halle Berry IS Catwoman; Angelina can be Batwoman.

  19. Anonymous • August 3, 2008 @ 2:50 PM

    I agree with Lorna — Dustin Hoffman would make a great Mr. Freeze.

  20. me • August 4, 2008 @ 9:40 AM

    Nooooooooooo. As much as I think Angelina is hot, I don’t think she’s right for the role. Sure she’s sexy but I just think she’s way too mainstream to play the part. It would be nice to see someone else in the part that you don’t normally see.

    And Robin? Good God that will just ruin the Batman movies.

  21. Anonymous • August 4, 2008 @ 4:54 PM

    what about wonder woman?

  22. Montana Dave • August 4, 2008 @ 5:12 PM

    “I dont think shes right for the role. Sure shes sexy but I just think shes way too mainstream to play the part. It would be nice to see someone else in the part that you dont normally see.”

    I like Angelina, but Sarah Jessica Parker would be my first choice.

  23. Nancy • August 4, 2008 @ 7:27 PM

    What about her? She’s been trolling the swamps finding dead bodies, haven’t you heard?

  24. yuki • August 5, 2008 @ 12:16 AM

    I heard Eva Mendez is going to play Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk!!! Anyway, o ya, Jolie’s a great choice for Catwoman, and i think Maria Kanellis from WWE= Wonder Woman hehe

  25. *sighs* • August 5, 2008 @ 12:44 AM

    “Catwoman should be in the third Batman movie.”

    …as long as it isn’t played by Jolie…

  26. MC ROVE • August 5, 2008 @ 12:54 AM

    Jude Law

  27. Jag • August 5, 2008 @ 3:50 AM

    heyy it said speak your mind..

  28. Bubbles • August 5, 2008 @ 4:36 PM

    Jolie in a tight leather jumpsuit and a whip…
    … need a moment to collect my thoughts.

    I think this movie would do wonders for the S&M industry 🙂

  29. Jo-Anne. • August 6, 2008 @ 11:16 AM

    anything jolie is in, count me out

  30. Nancy • August 8, 2008 @ 11:13 PM

    Hmmmmmm…..I wonder if Angelina would mind coming and posting on Tribute….????? 😀

    Jolie for Catwoman, she would be just perfect for the role. She is everything Catwoman should be.
