They would both be fine, but Blunt is (in my opinion) an actress who is stronger in both her talent and in her physical commitment to her roles. She would have a better chance of becoming definitive, I think.

Problem I have with Blunt is that I find her to look too young to be Catwoman to Affleck's Batman.

Maybe, but I don't really think they have to be exact contemporaries.

That is true.

And Blunt is actually one of the more solid choices.

I've been amusing myself with somewhat less predictable and often used fan-castings for Batman mythos characters (like Sean Harris for Two-Face) for a while and just recently I came up with this idea... what do you guys think of Sienna Guillory for Catwoman? I don't think she was mentioned before.

I'm not sure about her acting chops, but she certainly gives off that certain dark vibe I find Selina should have.

Actually, she already looked rather Catwomanish as Jill Valentine in "Resident Evil".

I was her biggest champion at about the time Batman Begins was released. She is gorgeous, and even my girlfriend had a huge crush on her. But her career appears to have gone nowhere since.

That might explain why I can't recall seeing her in anything outside "Resident Evil" films for years. It's a shame, really.

Yes, it is. She absolutely sizzled on screen.

She's alright. I wouldn't call her hot, but maybe that's just me.

I have no idea what Lauren Cohan is like as an actress, but the vibe this particular picture gives off is very Selina Kyle.

She was rather Catwomanish in "Supernatural" series. She's not a bad choice actually.

I can't really tell much about her acting, as it was years ago since I watched "Supernatural" and she only appeared in one season, but those who watch "The Walking Dead" should know better.


By the way, I think that Connie Nielsen would be a good choice some ten years ago.

Also I really wouldn't mind if Snyder goes back to actress from "Watchmen", Laura Mennell. She has a bit darker more cynical look (which I find essential for the character) than Cohan.







And I don't think she's any worse acting-wise than most actresses being suggested here (aside from Charlize Theron). She's also of right age and height for Affleck's Batman. 35 years old and 5' 9" ft tall.

She's been a favourite of mine for this role for quite awhile now. Haven't watched Walking Dead in a long time, but I know she'd be suited.

That last picture of her screams Darwyn Cooke's Selina Kyle to me:




Yes, I know this is Jim Lee, sue me.

It is still Cooke's design of the character.

Jim Lee's Selina is very pretty, but goodness me those boobs are absurd!

Tim Sale's Selina drives me crazy. Though his Catwoman is yucky.

What do you dislike about his Catwoman? I seem to remember he just applied his slightly scribbly style to the classic purple jump suit.

Blunt is indeed a very talented lady & I'd have no qualms if she got cast as Catwoman. She's long overdue to be in a comic book film anyway.

And the best thing about Blunt is she's good with whatever you give her. She can be funny, she can be brooding, she can resonate with an audience & play sympathetic very well, etc. etc. She'd be able to give Selina Kyle everything she needs.

I don't think she's too young to be beside Affleck's Batman, either.

Charlize or bust.

In something similar to the Darwyn Cooke costume.

This may be a bit of an odd choice, but I would love to see Tatiana Maslany in the role.

Not totally on topic, but we have too many sub-forums to allow a decent chance that it will be seen elsewhere:



Isn't this the cutest cosplay ever?

I don't see Artenton as Catwoman but possibly as Poison Ivy. I could see older Catwoman played by Kate Beckinsale (41) and Ben Affleck is Batman (42) if they do a solo Batman film and if they use Catwoman.
