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?
