Friday Five: Actresses Who Should Play Catwoman

Earlier this week there was a rumor going around that Megan Fox had landed the role of Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's next Batman film. Obviously this isn't true, because they haven't even written the script for that film, let alone begun casting it – and so we've decided to throw out our recommendations for the role of Catwoman (not including Megan Fox) should the character show up in the sequel. The way we see it, Catwoman should be sexy, seductive and sinister. So here are five gals who we feel would be more than up for that challenge …

  1. Angelina Jolie – Look, her name is Catwoman, not Catgirl. For this role you need a veteran hottie, a gal who's been around the block a few times but still knows how to knock 'em dead with her eyes. She may be the most obvious choice, but that doesn't mean she's not also the best one, too.
  2. Eva Green – This brunette bombshell showed us her seductive-yet-secretive side in Casino Royale, and if she can trade shots with James Bond for a couple hours, she could certainly hold her own with Batman. 
  3. Scarlett Johansson – One look at her as Black Widow in Iron Man 2 proves that ScarJo definitely knows how to handle herself in a big-time superhero flick, and she more than definitely knows how to look smashing in leather. It's probably not a great idea for her to sleep around with both Marvel and DC, though I bet Batman wouldn't mind planting one (or two) right on those luscious lips of hers. In fact, I wouldn't mind it so much either …
  4. Monica Belluci – She's an oldie, but boy is she a goodie – Monica Belluci is the queen of kicking ass while looking unbelievably sexy at the same time, and that little accent of hers would hypnotize Batman in a matter of seconds. Is she too old to play Catwoman? Maybe. But I wouldn't complain about someone wanting to give Belluci a whip and put her in a leather cat outfit. You?
  5. Gemma Arterton – The new girl on the block – Arterton followed Eva Green as Bond's latest fling in Quantum of Solace, and she's also due to bust out in two big films next year: Disney's Prince of Persia and The Clash of the Titans remake. Surely she knows how to handle a big-budgeted film, and by the time the third Batman movie comes out, she'll probably be a household name. Oh, and she's beautiful!
So those are my five picks for the Catwoman. Who would you like to see in the role?
