No Catwoman Role for Cher in 'Batman 3'


Cher


During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Cher puts off speculation about her being Catwoman in 'The Dark Knight' sequel, branding herself as 'too old' for the part.

Cher may not be the feline villain in the sequel of "The Dark Knight" after all. At a recent appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", the 62-year-old Academy Award-recipient has shot down circulating rumor that she has been considered to be Catwoman in "Batman 3" when asked by host Ellen DeGeneres about the possibility.

Responding to DeGeneres' question why she won't be Catwoman, the pop singer who is known for her big screen performance as Loretta Castorini in "Moonstruck" was quick to make note that she is "too old to be Catwoman". "I could be Grandma Catwoman or something," she then added before explaining that she is involved in another feature film project called "The Drop-Out".

Back in late August 2008, the news about Cher being eyed for the Catwoman role has broken out to the surface. At the time, it was reported that director Christopher Nolan prefered to give the part to her. "Cher is Nolan's first choice to play Catwoman. He wants to her to portray her like a vamp in her twilight years," a studio executive stated. "The new Catwoman will be the absolute opposite of Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry's purring creations."

Aside from Cher, other actresses linked to the role also include "Wanted (2008)" star Angelina Jolie and "The Constant Gardener" lead Rachel Weisz. While Jolie has been reported to make inquiries for the villainous role, Weisz was rumored to be one of the contenders for the part by E! Online's columnist Ted Casablanca.
