Do you believe...in casting Cher as Catwoman?

Catwoman_lI’m loving this rumor that the next Batman sequel will feature a Catwoman played by Cher. According to this dubious, thinly sourced Telegraph article, franchise director Christopher Nolan wants the 62-year-old Oscar-winner to play the feline femme fatale "like a vamp in her twilight years." (Hey, nobody better tell Cher or her fans that she’s a vamp in her twilight years.) Truth is, there’ve been no announcements about the next Bat-film, including even whether Nolan and star Christian Bale are coming back, much less who the villains will be or who’ll play them. (Slashfilm has a good, accurate timeline on the latest news, meager as it is, about the forthcoming sequel.) Still, why shouldn’t the filmmakers look as far afield as, say, Cher to play Catwoman? (Don’t dismiss her because of her age; she’s indestructible!) Or Johnny Depp to play the Riddler (as the Telegraph article also claims)? Heath Ledger wouldn’t have been my first pick to play the Joker, but that eccentric bit of casting certainly worked out. Who would you like to see in the next Batman adventure, PopWatchers, and playing which character?

    Gary, Cher is only indestructible because she’s entirely made of plastic, silicon, and other man-made materials. I say NO! to Cher as Catwoman. As obvious and cliche as this may be, I think Angelina Jolie would make a good Catwoman.

    I am still very much confused about this rumor. Cher wouldnt be my first choice as an old ho catwoman but it does make me wish Madonna was a good actress cause then she wouldve nailed it!

  • paige

    angelina jolie is a cliche choice and she is just too much of a big hollywood name for the nolan batman movies.

  • Fletch

    Ew…

  • Raven_Moon

    I love the Angelina Jolie as Catwoman rumor. Also, the Johnny Depp as the Riddler one certainly intrigues me.

  • Jon

    Cher would be a horrendous choice. You might as well have Joel Schumacher make the movie.

  • Minutiae

    I don’t think Nolan would ever want Cher… his casting choices have been, save for Katie Holmes, much more serious and less mainstream. Plus, Catwoman as an aging vamp? HA! Seriously… just NO. (I do think Johnny Depp could be a great Riddler, though.)

    i’m not too set on cher playing catwoman, but if it happened it would find a way to work. she did win an oscar after all.

  • Snarf

    Patrick Stewart – Mr Freeze
    I love Cher, but I don’t think she ‘d be good as Catwoman. (Too much of a camp factor with her) Agelina Jolie on the other hand….

  • Jackie

    i think cher would be 40,000x better than angelina and i agree that that would be SOOO cliche. ick. i’d rather see megan fox, altho she’s like a mini-angie. i like the idea of johnny depp, but would he do it? who knows, i’m sure there are better choices out there. i think nolan could take reese witherspoon or anne hathaway or mark ruffalo or jennifer garner and make them give tremendous performances. jake gyllenhaal? peter saarsgaard? ryan gosling??? rachel mcadams? all better choices i think since they are good actors (save jennifer garner) and i think nolan could do a lot with them.

    Depp and Jolie – hell no. Way to big of names.
    I like the Cher idea, so something a little different.

  • supermart

    I think Famke Janssen would be a great Catwoman. (Sorry, but Cher could be Catwoman’s grandma!)…. And Nolan in the next Batman don’t you dare kill Gordon, Gary Oldman is great!!!

  • Danny

    I know I’ll get crucified for this, but I kind of want to see the Joker recast. I just love that bad guy, and much of what made the Joker great in The Dark Knight was the writing.
    Heath Ledger set the rules for the character, and I’d like to see someone like Johnny Depp take on that role rather than the Riddler.

  • Fletch

    Jackie is on point with the Megan Fox comment. Not that she is a mini-Angie (at least I don’t see it), but that she would be a good Catwoman.
    Of course, maybe I’m just biased because I don’t think there has ever been a hotter woman in Hollywood ever. I’m totally smitten with Megan.

  • Emilio

    what about Keira Knightley? I’d love to see her as Catwoman. She has the tomboy look and the dramatic skills to pull a terrific Catwoman, not to mention she’s hot.
