Ridiculous rumor of the day: Cher top choice for Catwoman

Catty Update: Warner Bros unsurprisingly debunked the rumor…did they need to bother?

British newspaper The Telegraph insists that pop singer Cher, who hasn’t been seen on the big screen since 2003’s Stuck On You is director Christopher Nolan’s top choice for the role of Catwoman in the unavoidable third Batman movie. Never mind that the script hasn’t been written, that the screenwriters dismissed the idea of Catwoman being in the new movie or that Nolan isn’t even officialy signed on yet…just believe The Telegraph, which goes in to “inform us” that Johnny Depp has actually already been cast as The Riddler.

Not only has work not officially started on the new Batman, but Catwoman is a character who has always been portrayed has a having both a romantic link and an enmity to Batman (as well as being a love interest for Bruce Wayne). Thus the idea of pairing the 62 year old Cher with the 34 year old Christian Bale and expecting sexual tension to emanate is laughable beyond belief. Angelina Jolie was the last actress rumored to play the character, and while I don’t agree with that choice, it’s certainly much more fitting (my personal vote goes to One Tree Hill actress Sophia Bush). Catwoman was last portrayed on the big screen by Halle Berry in the eponymous 2004 film, however that was a bastardized version and her last true portrayal remains Michelle Pfeiffer’s famous turn in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns.

The annoying thing with these rumors is that some supposedly “professional” people actually present them as fact, and plenty of people will simply believe them and tell their friends (kind of like celebrity gossip). And with official cast announcements about the currently untitled Dark Knight sequel not happening for at least several months, possibly more than a year, expect ridiculous rumors to pop up by the truckload.

Actually, let me start a few right here: Sylvester Stallone cast as Clayface! Verne Troyer to portray Killer Croc! Dakota Fanning lands coveted Poison Ivy role!
