The word on the street is that Warner Bros. is already gearing up for a new Batman flick and Johnny Depp is the leading contender to play The Riddler!
Also being bandied about is the rumor that the WB executives want Philip Seymour Hoffman to play the Penguin, despite director Christopher Nolan once saying that he was against the idea of using the Penguin in his Batman films because the character was too “far fetched.”
Jolie is said to be in final negotiations with studio bosses to play the feline villain.
“Angelina would own the part,” commented actress Julie Newmar Newmar, 74, who played the role in the campy ‘60s TV version. “My industry friends tell me she has already made enquiries about the role. I can understand how it would pique her interest. Catwoman is Batman’s one true love.
Damn, this could be one helluva movie…
