Taking a break from commenting on the best and worst dressed of the red carpet and who might be fellating whom, E!’s Ted Casablanca is giving us definite, totally not made-up, probably not fabricated confirmation from “sources” that Batman 3 is a reality.
According to a recent post, Casablanca has got the scoop everyone’s been waiting for – claiming that Nolan will be back in the director’s chair and Bale will be suiting up, although Casablanca seems more interested in Bale suiting down than the groundbreaking news that, wait for it:
Rachel Weisz will be playing Catwoman.
Of course, this news should be taken with a shovel of salt since it comes from a reporter who uses the word ‘bubkes’ liberally and throws the word ‘so’ into italics for emphasis.
However, it’s not a bad rumor. At least, it wouldn’t be an awful casting choice. Weisz is a great talent, and her casting could mean a modern age Selina Kyle – prostitution-past and all. And who wouldn’t want to see Weisz as a dominatrix?
Casablanca also randomly tosses his hat into the ring for Robert Pattinson to replace Heath Ledger as The Joker. This suggestion makes no sense.
Having gravity-defying wacky hair does not qualify anyone for stepping into Ledger’s shoes. Otherwise, Bozo the Clown could replace him, and that guy has a longer clown-themed resume than Pattinson.
Even though it will probably be true just to make me look like an idiot – I’m so not putting stock in these rumors, but it still seemed newsworthy if just to discuss the merit of Weisz as Catwoman.
