Angelina Jolie as Catwoman?If you are a dedicated reader to this site, you will know that we love to start rumors — in fact, we have been known to say just about anything in order to stir the pot. But some things, we just can’t believe. Take this little rumor that has started courtesy of the folks over at IGN. Apparently Julie Newmar, who played Catwoman in the original Batman TV series, told the New York Daily News that she has knowledge that Angelina Jolie has inquired about playing Catwoman in the not yet announced third film in Christopher Nolan’s series. Here is what she had to say, to be exact:

Angelina would own the part. My industry friends tell me [she] has made inquiries about the role. I can understand how it would pique her interest.

Chances are that this is just another flat rumor that will not yield any sort of results, but it is worth a thought. Angelina Jolie in tight black spandex, adding a little sexiness to Chris Nolan’s series, one that has had nothing of the sort thus far. Personally, I am all for anything that has Mrs. Pitt in a tight outfit beating ass. As well, should something like this ever works its way into a movie, I am sure that Christopher Nolan and crew would find a way to make it fit without cheesing it up.

In related news, The Dark Knight is still trucking along at the box office — bringing in $333.9 million as of Tuesday’s update. It is currently 16th all-time on the Domestic Box Office chart and still resides at #1 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies of All-Time chart with a 9.2/10 rating. I think it goes without saying that people are responding well to the film.
