Angelina Jolie shoots down Catwoman rumours

Won’t suit up for Dark Knight Rises

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has broken the hearts of a thousand comic book fans by confirming that she’s not been approached to play Catwoman in Chris Nolan’s trilogy-capper The Dark Knight Rises.

While out and about promoting new film The Tourist, Jolie told MTV: “I haven't heard anything about it, but I thought they did it.”

By ‘it’ she’s either referring to Michelle Pfeiffer’s stellar turn in Batman Returns, or Halle Berry’s, uh, less celebrated solo outing, Catwoman.

When told she would be perfect for the role, Jolie played coy: “I see. Thank you. Flattering.”

Is she just keeping schtum at the behest of Chris Nolan? Or is Jolie really not interested in starring in another comic book adap? Let the Dark Knight Rises rumours roll on…

If Catwoman appears in Dark Knight Rises, who do you think should play her? Debate below...

      I feel that the 'Batman' franchise has turned away from its comic counterpart too much, therefore I feel that (re)introducing Catwoman wouldn't match the tone of the last and new movie(s), because Catwoman's outlandish behaviour would clash severely with Christian Bale's more serious take. Should the producers:screenwriters/director still choose for a feline appearance, I wouldn't mind Angelina Jolie doing a Betty Page with pointed ears. She's got the wits, the talent and surely the looks to make the outfit bulge and slope in the right places. Jessica Alba would also entice a few mews from the audience. Just don't don her a latex suit. It might melt... JJ

      NFW. Keep it leftfield Chis. She's the wrong sort of star for this franchise.
