Is Megan Fox Purrfect For "Catwoman" ?

Fanboys are wondering if Warners and director Christopher Nolan will include the character of 'Catwoman' in "Batman 3", played by actress Megan Fox ("Jonah Hex").

To date, the only prominent females that have appeared in Nolan's 2 "Batman" films have been Katie Holmes in "Batman Begins" and Maggie Gyllenhaal in "The Dark Knight", with neither performance creating any kind of sexy spark with audiences.

Is Megan Fox just too good-looking for Nolan to cast in his rogues gallery of comic book freaks transferred to the big screen ?

Actress Michelle Pfeiffer played the beautiful and vicious 'Selina Kyle' in director Tim Burton's 1992 "Batman" feature "Batman Returns".

The dowdy, efficient secretary for corrupt tycoon 'Max Shreck', Kyle survives being pushed out of an office window, when she is mysteriously resuscitated by a pack of alley-cats, to become the vengeful villainess 'Catwoman'.

The original Selina Kyle was created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane, debuting in the DC comic book "Batman" #1 (Spring 1940), in which the character is referred to as 'The Cat'.

As an adversary of 'Batman', Kyle was a whip-carrying burglar with a taste for high-stake thefts.

Since the 1990s, "Catwoman" has been featured in several DC Comics series that cast her as an antihero rather than a supervillain.

Catwoman is also one of Batman's most enduring love interests, depicted as his one 'true love'.
