Hanna Montana as Catwoman?


I know the movie business is full of rumors and thankfully the strangest of these never come to pass. But I have heard from several sources that there is buzz about Miley Cyrus being cast as Catwoman in the next Batman movie. Now either Christopher Nolan is on the glue again or is following the logic I showed earlier with my interest in seeing Mike Tyson play B.A. Baracus is the big screen version of the 'A-Team'. On the face of it, it would be a brilliant move. Take one Disneyfide pop star and allow her to grow up by playing a big girl role that definitely goes against type. The pre-release buzz would be HUGE and would bring in the younger crowd. Nolan, however, may not want to make the next feature so kid friendly. If the filmmakers introduce a young Robin, they might also go for a young Catwoman to balance the evil with the good. We all know that two villains have to appear in any superhero flick so making an older say Riddler, with a young Catwoman could work. I just don't want it to go to an obvious choice like a Megan Fox or whomever is the new flavor of the week. But then again maybe I am on the glue and there is a reason why I am not making casting decisions. Is it wrong to want to see something different for a change?

This was a story completely made up by a British tabloid that Miley Cyrus showed up at the Warner Bros offices dressed in a rubber costume demanding to be cast as Batgirl. It's a load of rubbish that a lot of American filmsites are running with for some reason.

I'd like to see Catwoman as someone who doesn't represent anything. I really felt like The Dark Knight got too bogged down in what every character represented. I want to see a Catwoman who just loves to steal, and let Batman deal with a villain who has no deep psychological motive. He won't know how to handle it!

I'd just like to see one character in one of these movies who enjoys what they do instead of being so grim or trying to make a point.

Hmm... I almost wrote, 'No, no, no, no, no,'... but she IS a good actress, and look at her eyes... Good Catwoman eyes. I think she would be a good enough Catwoman.

Sorry, Froggie. Your comment appeared just as I posted mine.

Sweet lord I hope she doesn't ever get cast as Catwoman.

They can cast her as Catwoman IF they want to totally lose any cred they have built up.

Nicole said...

Of course, Wings DOES have a point. Heath Ledger and Hannah Montana (aka Miley Cyrus... Who knew?) should never do anything remotely alike... Batman wouldn't do this to me, would he? Plus, I fear the wrath of Wings.

I don't know that she could do sexy properly for Catwoman. Now I could maybe see MC as Barbara Gordon - the wide eyed girl infatuated/inspired by Batman.

I like seeing surprises too.

How does this sound? Milla as Catwoman? Huh? HUH? You listening, Hollywood?

She is perfect as Generic Viagra , but she still needs to grow up. Remember she's even 17 years old, and won't be fine to pressure her.
