So here’s a rumour about Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice that comes courtesy of Spanish site El Multicine: British actress Emily Blunt is apparently up for the role of Catwoman.
She would be joining a crowded cast that already includes Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Currently to be seen kicking alien arse in Edge of Tomorrow, Blunt’s badassery is well established at this point.
This isn’t the first time the 31-year-old has been considered for a superhero movie, though. Blunt was in contention for both Black Widow and Agent Peggy Carter, which eventually went to Scarlett Johansson and Hayley Atwell respectively.
Personally, I think Blunt would kill as Catwoman. Anne Hathway did a magnificent job in The Dark Knight Rises (2012), and I’d be very happy to see her reprise the role, but I suppose Warners wants to cut all ties with the Chris Nolan movies. Having said that, Blunt would be a more than adequate replacement.
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice opens worldwide on May 6, 2016.
What do you think – would Emily Blunt make a good Catwoman? Tell us!
