Yesterday we saw Jennifer Love Hewitt proclaim her desire to play Wonder Woman.  She's not the only one with the desire to wear tights.  
 
Today's heroine of choice is Catwoman Kate Beckinsale, no stranger to black tight fitting outfits, said she would "happily play Catwoman" if she was featured in an upcoming Batman movie.  In the past she was often considered a candidate to play Wonder Woman but she expressed she didn't really want to do that role.  Why the change in attitude over this character?

I don’t know if my husband would ever talk to me again if I refused to do it.  So I would definitely have to give it some very heavy consideration I think.


Beckinsale isn't the only one with the desire to play Catwoman.  Sienna Miller will be wearing a black tight fitting outfit in this Friday's G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra.  Besides saying she would like to play Wonder Woman as well, she recently io9:

I wouldn't mind Catwoman. I would quite love to be Catwoman in a Chris Nolan adaptation, that would be an amazing role.  


Now keep in mind, there's been no official mention of Catwoman appearing in the next Batman movie (or any mention of the next movie) but stories like these get you wondering.  It's great that Hollywood actors have a desire to play comic book characters.  It adds to the comic book credibility.  The bigger the names that want to play these roles, the bigger the budgets can be for the movies (provided they have a decent script, director, etc).  Out of these two, who do you think would be a better Catwoman?  Or do you have someone else in mind?

Hmmm.... 
I would like to see Beckinsale in this role but I think they both might do a good job but Kate just seems right some how.  
BTW Gary Oldman said that Chris Nolan is working on the script now. It was on SCifiwire a couple weeks ago.

I think Miller but I think Stana Katic (Castle) would be a good Catwoman.

They're most likely going off the quote that s un confirmed saying that CN said he would think about doing a third film but would need someone like Cats to ground it.

I love Kate. She's such an incredibly sexy woman and not all that bad of an actor... still, I don't know if I could see her playing Catwoman. Maybe.

Kate would make a perfect Catwoman. She looks the part and has the acting chops. 
Beckinsale all the way.

No one would ever forgive her or talk to her again from this site if she turned it down.

Personally, if I saw Kate as Catwoman I'd be waiting for the moment where her eyes turn baby blue and she pulls a gun out on Batman. That may just be me though. 
 
So in this case, I'd go with Sienna Miller. I'm curious how good she'll be in G.I. Joe, considering if they are looking at either of these for Catwoman, that could make or break her chances for the role most likely.

Between these two, Kate.  However if the role of Catwoman did surface why not cast an unknown or someone else?  As you stated, G-Man, neither one of them has even been approached regarding the role its just wishful thinking on their part.  Wishful for the $ cha-ching.

   Personally I always wanted Sherilyn Fenn    to be Catwoman , but sadly I would never see that day happened. It's funny I recently found out back in the early 90's she was a fan favorite to play her.  
   
 
 

 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 But if I had to choose between these 2 I would want Kate, but I also think Meg Fox would look good as Catwoman too.

What's up with all these actors/actresses wanting to play characters in films that aren't even being put in motion by the film companies? Let the movie actually be in some kind of stage in its production and then mention you want the role. It's getting kind of annoying now. 
 
It's different when you have an actor say he or she's been in actual talks with the companies for the role. But to just pop out a comic character and say you want to play them is starting to become a phenomenon in itself.

Huh, I actually names Kate Beckinsale as a choice to play Wonder Woman. That is confusing how she would like to play Catwoman, but not Wonder Woman. Though I do really think she could be a great Selina. Though anything would be better then that horrid Hallie Berry incarnation, making Catwoman look like some sort of cheesy SciFi character.

it sounds like they're only interested because of the success of the dark knight.  "happily play Catwoman" if she was featured in an upcoming Batman movie. translation: I would happily play catwoman, if I were to make a lot of money in the process.

           And if that doesn't work then Angelina Jolie or Halle Berry could do it.

A few weeks ago I saw Batman Returns on TV and Michelle Preiffer steals the spotlight, she did a fantastic job.  
 I'm more familiar with Kate Beckinsale and she's a good actress. Ms Miller is an unknown to me, haven't seen any of her movies though I might see G.I Joe this weekend.  
 
If there is a Catwoman in the next film, I don't think the actress, whoever she is, can surpass Michelle's performance. But that depends on if Catwoman is one of the central characters in the movie.

Both are good choices, but I'd have to with Beckinsale, Kate. The only thing is I never really thought that Kate would be the Catwoman because when I think of Catwoman I think of Deviace sexed cravished like women. And that women/actress I think about is Angelina Jolie. I'm Sorry! I know how over rated she is sometimes, but she's just got that appeal to me....?/                
 
             But I do think that Kate is the BEST choice for playing Catwoman in a Christopher Nolan film she's got that mysteriousness that I like. And she's a wonderful actress I think she would do an Amazing!!!! Job..     Just saying that I think that Angelina Jolie would make a good Catwoman makes hesitate Alot when you add somebody like Kate Beckinsale into the equation that could and maybe do a better job than Angelina... 
 
As I'm writing all my thoughts down I can definately see Kate playing this role and it would be just AWEMAZING!!!!!!!!!! 
 
                                                      (Anyone agree????)  cough cough and she's sexy..

Kate  Beckinsale  and Seina Miller want to be Catwoman. 
Beyonce, Megan Gale, and JLH want to be Wonder Woman.  
Channing Tatum wants to be Thor and Captain America! 
 
.....  I wanna be Mother F****** Teresa!  
 
I have a thought, How about all these "actors" and "actresses" who keep begging for a comic book role shut up and wait for the movie to go into pre-production first!  
 
........ But if it has to be anyone.... Kate Beckinsale.... She's the only option that can actually act, but I don't much care for her reasons for wanting it.

I'm definitely on Team Kate.  I think she'd be perfect for the role.  The has the look down, not to mention she actually has acting ability,
