Paula's Beautiful Bloodshot Eyes: She looks like Belladonna.

Now THAT would be an interesting choice!!

caalro33: Bondidude: t's rough. Very rough. But it's fun to speculate.

She helps WOMEN... because she is a WOMAN.
I get it.

You don't have to beat me over the head with it =P


Yes and no.

She helps women because at one point or another she has been the victim, go with the former prostitute story line from Miller or something else, then overcame it and became what she is today, strong and independent, just like a cat they might even say.

She's also a thrill junky who gets off on the crimes she commits, but because of certain circumstances, she's another trust fund kid like Wayne (prostitute angle wouldn't really work here), independently wealthy by being a successful business woman turned philanthropist, or some other means, perhaps she just stole it and is pretending to be part of this social high life so she can gain people's trust, find out the workings of their business and where their goods are kept. Then at night she returns to her neighborhood to watch over them, she is their mother and silent protector.

With no need for the money, plus no way to track the stolen funds back to her, she ends up being a contractor of sorts for people looking for valuable goods to be stolen. Then uses that money to help the people who need it most, in a way paying penance for her crimes. There could be a really deep angle to Catwoman where she's more than a thief but instead a thrill addict who uses the spoils of her addiction to pay for her crimes.

This would also be the perfect reason for her to fit in with Wayne and his crowd, another rich young woman to rub elbows with Wayne and ultimately woo him as Bruce Wayne and drive him insane as Batman.

While Ziyi Zhang is a good choice and Rosario Dawson would be great fan service, I'm going to have to say Summer Glau. She has the grace and presence Catwoman needs Here fight scenes as River Tam and Cameron show that she can pull off brutal and delicate at once.

/God save us from Angelina Jolie
//Or the overrated Gyllenhal
///Catwoman is supposed to be attractive, sexy, and graceful, dammit

Apparently you and I have the same taste in incredibly gorgeous brunettes.

I hope automatically excludes EVERYBODY that is rumored to be in the next movie. Because none of you stupid fanboys could predict Ledger as the Joker, keep your stupid salivating mouths shut about who should play what in the next movie and let Nolan surprise you. Besides, it's gonna be a long ass time til it gets made.
 
2008-12-17 09:36:49 AM
That is, I hope Chris Nolan excludes everybody being rumored.
 
2008-12-17 09:49:50 AM
fan_of_homer: In Nolan I trust. I get a kick out of all the teeth nashing when the latest rumors come out.

How many of you were excited about Heath Ledger as Joker when word first came out?

More than anything I think that Nolan cares as much about Batman as any of the fanboys and will not do anything gimicky with it. We may not see his vision when we hear about it, but it will be fine when it is on the screen.


THIS. All my faith lies in Nolan to make an awesome movie. I don't care whether it's loyal to the Batman legend or any of that crap. And I certainly don't want him to pick an actor/character to appease retarded fanboys. I hope, like when he picked Ledger, the fans feel confused as he silently flips them the bird and does what is right.

Sometimes, the obvious casting choice isn't good enough. Sometimes, people deserve more. Sometimes, people deserve to have their faith rewarded.

If they want to introduce a 'dark' love interest for Batman I would look at the following before Cat woman.

Talia al Ghul

Sasha Bordeaux

Lady Shiva

Natalia Knight
 
2008-12-17 10:27:08 AM
No to Catwoman yes to Lady Shiva!!!

Batman needs to have someone who can match his martial arts. Nolan for the third movie needs to go back to the beginning. Bruce Wayne can't have been taught by one Ra's Al Ghul alone. He went all over the world and trained in various fighting styles.

We need one with flashbacks again to introduce Lady Shiva who teaches Bruce and challenges him to a death duel.
 
2008-12-17 10:35:25 AM
"(that's ZiYi Zhang for those of you who think they all look alike)"

I'm thinking she'd make an excellent new Batgirl instead, if they ever use the character in the movies, that is...

Lunchlady: So for those of you keeping score:

Batman Begins: Batman stops an ancient organization bent on destroying Gotham in a sick version of urban renewal.

Dark Knight: Maniacal terrorist who incapacitates an entire city and overthrows all social order.

Batman 3: Jewel thief.

How the hell will they top THAT for Batman 4?


That's why you need Eco-Terrorist Poison Ivy. Her motives would be essentially the same as Batman's (going beyond the law to stop evil-doers). The essential conflict would be that Batman relates to what she's doing but spends the film trying to prevent her from crossing the line he won't.

THIS WILL WORK! Seriously Nolan, I work for peanuts. I have my computer and copy of Word, I can have the script written by Tuesday. CALL ME!

I would rather see a Talia al Ghul angle having her trying to revenge her father but in a subtle way by inticing batman since he is now hunted and shunned by society. Through the other villan in for a mix and have batman actually work through the crisis and then turn Talia.

She is beautiful...but not sexy. I don't know what it is about her. She's a great actress too..but not the kind of sexy I would imagine Catwoman to be..

Ordell: How dogmatic are you all about sticking to the comic canon? Cuz if you don't mind a Chinese hottie in the role, I got just the gal:

All chinese actresses look alike because all chinese actresses are ZiYi Zhang.

Abstruse 2008-12-16 06:58:03 PM Subby seems to forget the people like me who will point out that Nolan isn't even contracted on a third film yet, there's no script yet, and Nolan has other projects he wants to do before he goes back to Batman. Therefore, any rumors like this are worthless because they're just more rumors
=======================

Ding! WB has already greenlighted it and most of the main actors ARE contracted to it... but Nolan himself isn't.

Until he comes out and says "Yes, I'm doing it... here's the story', everything that comes out is pure garbage.

Including this. Cher, Depp, Hoffman, Weisz... you name it. It's pure lies and bullshiat. Ok?

It's hard to imagine Nolan picking up the Catwoman thread because his movies are particularly male dominant and quite sexless.

You know, Ordell, Zhang ZiYi is not a bad idea at all. She's damned easy on the eyes, and has the physical chops to be a believable kick-ass fighter...which Catwoman has to be.

Here's the treatment I'd do for the third film... no Catwoman, but hey. I'm going to be borrowing a bit from Knightfall and Knight's End here.

We pick up shortly after the second film. Batman is Public Enemy #1, and the mayor is breathing down Gordon's neck to bring him in. Gordon claims to be doing everything he can, but the mayor is unconvinced. Meanwhile, word is going around about a "Batman copycat" who is leaving people severely maimed.

Batman runs across the "Batman copycat", and manages to stop him from breaking some poor perp's neck. They have a fight, Batman wins. Bats unmasks the copycat, and recognizes another member of the Society of Shadows -- Jean-Paul Valley. Bats takes Valley back to the Batcave. He comes to see Valley as a protege, and attempts to teach Valley his own brand of vigilantism.

Meanwhile, the mayor has gone over Gordon's head and brought in a bounty hunter by the name of Bane. Gordon is furious over this, and berates the mayor for letting some unstable psychopath loose on Gotham City. The mayor reminds Gordon that, if he'd done his job properly, Bane wouldn't be necessary, and tells Gordon he expects him to put the GCPD's full resources at Bane's disposal.

Bane leads Batman on in a vicious game of cat-and-mouse as Valley watches, ordered to never interfere. Eventually, the trail leads Bats and Valley back to the Batcave -- where Bane is waiting for them, having deduced Bruce's secret identity. He proves to be more than a match for Batman, physically, mentally, and strategically, and eventually badly injures him before Valley breaks his vow and manages to drive off Bane. But the damage is done -- Bruce is now bedridden. Bruce asks Valley to step into the mantle of the Bat.

Bruce cannot go to a hospital, of course, so Alfred calls Lucius. At first, Lucius doesn't want anything to do with Bruce -- but after Alfred explains the situation, he wants to help. He brings his personal physician, Dr. Leslie Tompkins, to Wayne Manor to nurse Bruce back to health.

While Bruce is learning to walk again, Valley-Batman is out there trying his best to fill his shoes -- and doing a decent, if brutal, job. Bane shows up to take him out for good, but is expecting to fight Bruce again; being unfamiliar with Valley's fighting style, he loses, and Valley, in a rage over what happened to Bruce, kills Bane. This one act sends Valley tumbling over the edge, and he becomes a Punisher/Judge Dredd-type, meting out lethal enforcement for nearly every offense. Having found out what happened, Bruce confronts Valley over Bane's murder, but Valley simply laughs him off. At this point, Bruce realizes he has unleashed a monster on Gotham, and vows to stop him.

Lucius once again helps Bruce liberate a piece of forgotten Wayne-Corp tech -- this time, a strength-enhancing exo-frame. It doesn't work very well, but should be enough to allow a still-weak-from-the-injuries Bruce do all the things that Batman can normally do. Thus armed, Bruce sets out to stop Valley and turn him in for his crimes, and we get an epic Batman vs. Batman battle as the movie's climax. Bruce, of course, wins, and leaves Valley for the cops.

Valley ends up taking the blame for all of Batman's crimes, including Dent's murder. And thus, the city-wide Batman manhunt ends. Bruce looks out at the sunset, and wonders if the city will ever trust Batman again, or even if they should. Alfred tells him that the city will always need heroes, even if they can't always trust them. The End.

/Yes, I've thought about this.
