Deadline Hollywood reports “The Dark Knight Rises” will feature two female leads – a romantic interest for Bruce Wayne and a villain.
I’m long on record regarding who I want the next villain to be. And I think we can agree that Catwoman fits a little better in the Nolan Bros.' Batverse than does Poison Ivy.
According to Deadline, the six actresses meeting writer-director Christopher Nolan about these two roles are said to be:
So no Amy Adams, Rachel McAdams, Kate Beckinsale, Emily Blunt, Elizabeth Banks, Evangeline Lilly, Maggie Grace, Lucy Liu or Sean Young.
This would seem to fly in the face of News Corp.'s Aug. 26, 2009 bullshit report indicating Megan Fox had somehow already locked up the Catwoman role.
Lively plays Hal Jordan's love interest Carol Ferris in “Green Lantern,” so that’s kind of weird. And Portman plays the love interest in "Thor," so that's kind of weird too. But Ryan Reynolds and Chris Evans are playing multiple roles in the funnybook movies, so maybe not.
