Is this the face of the next Catwoman?
It was inevitable that rumours would start to circulate in Hollywood about possible characters and actors who could be appearing in the next Batman released from Warner Bros. We've all heard the Johnny Depp for The Riddler rumours and Philip Seymour Hoffman for The Penguin... but now Garbage lead singer turned actress Shirley Manson has thrown down the gauntlet for the role of Catwoman.
Speaking to MTV News in the USA about her current acting role in TV series "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" she is openly quoted as saying that Michelle Pfeiffers portrayal of Selina Kyle in the 1992 movie "Batman Returns" was "more cute than fierce" and that Halle Berry "wasn't quite right" in her 2004, critically panned "Catwoman" spin-off.
Manson's current acting role is also her first, playing the T-1000 model Terminator currently causing chaos in the life of heroine Sarah Connor and son John. Her role as the cold and ruthless T-1000 is one that she see's as similar to that of Catwoman, referring to the comic book character as being "difficult" and in need of being fully realised... a job she feels she is well prepared for!
What do you think? Who would you like to see in the role of Selina Kyle/Catwoman?
