Christopher Nolan continues his search for actors and actresses to star in the next Batman movie. Rumor from Deadline has Nolan looking to cast two females – one a love interest, the other the villain.
Right away you might be thinking Catwoman, and that horrible, horrible Cher rumor that ran rampant across the Inturdwebz a few months ago, but you might want to take pause and consider all the female villains that Batman has faced over the years.
- Dr. Jane Blazedale
- Talia al Ghul
- Harley Quinn
- Poison Ivy
- Mercy Graves
- Ventriloquist (in the new incarnation)
- Cyber Cat
- Jane Doe
- Lady Vic
- Madame Zodiac
- Roxy Rocket
- Ruby Rider
Just to name a few.
As far as female leads go, the list could include Vicky Vale, Silver St. Cloud, Talia al Ghul, and the ghost of Maggie Gyllenhaal.
So who has Nolan been talking to? Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley are on the list, and while none on the list strike me as an Orca type, the Madame Zodiac character may be right up Nolan’s alley.
So Spoilerites, fill up the comment section with your thoughts. Poo-poo the list, and cheer on your favorite, but just be thankful it won’t be Megan Fox.
