MEGAN FOX has signed up to play Catwoman in the next Batman movie.

And I have a strong feline she is the purrfect choice for the part – and thanks to a spot of computer wizardry here’s how she might look.

Megan will need to get into practice with her talcum powder application.

Slipping into the famous PVC catsuit always looked like a tricky business to me.

And I would like to be the first person to offer my services as a wardrobe assistant, should she need one.

The Transformers stunner follows in the pawprints of MICHELLE PFEIFFER and HALLE BERRY.

But Megan, who has a slightly darker edge than her two predecessors, will be brilliant as Selina Kyle.

All the other stars who have reinvented the Batman films are back on board – CHRISTIAN BALE, MICHAEL CAINE and director CHRISTOPHER NOLAN.

Shooting starts next year but the film is not expected to be released until 2011.

China Refuses to Release “The Dark Knight” in Chinese Cinemas

Batman blockbuster “The Dark Knight” won’t be screened in Chinese cinemas, Warner Bros. said in a statement Wednesday.

The studio said that the acclaimed film — the second highest-grossing movie in US box-office history — would be canned in China, with “cultural sensitivities” cited as one of the reasons for the no-show.

“Based on a number of pre-release conditions that are being attached to ‘The Dark Knight’ as well as cultural sensitivities to some elements of the film, we have opted to forego a theatrical release of the film in China,” a statement emailed to AFP said.

It was not clear what “cultural sensitivities” were at issue but the movie includes an action sequence shot in Hong Kong where Batman, played by Christian Bale, apprehends a Chinese money-launderer.

In 2006, Chinese authorities barred the release of Hollywood movie “Memoirs of a Geisha” amid speculation its portrayal of Japanese courtesans played by Chinese actresses could spark public controversy.

Taiwanese director Ang Lee’s gay cowboy drama “Brokeback Mountain” was also denied a release in China.

Editor’s Note: Wow, now Heath Ledger has the distinction of having both of his biggest films being banned from Chinese cinema, Brokeback and Batman.  Can’t they just let a brother live, posthumously?

Spoiler Alert:Batman killed by his OWN dad

When will the actual movies catch up with the actual storyline in the comic? Anyway all you comic geeks here is the ultimate spoiler for the newest Batman comic.

Bruce Wayne – who by night is Batman – gets murdered by a man claiming to be the father he thought was dead.

In a highly controversial new storyline Bruce, who first appeared in 1939, is killed by Simon Hurt – the leader of the shady Black Glove organisation.

Simon claims he is really Dr Thomas Wayne, saying he faked his own passing when Bruce was a child.

The superhero dies when he tries to stop his foe escaping by helicopter in the new comic Batman R.I.P.

Writer Grant Morrison said: �This is so much better than death. People have killed characters in the past but to me, that kind of ends the story!

“I like to keep the story twisting and turning. So what I am doing is a fate worse than death. Things that no one would expect to happen to these guys at all.

“This is the end of Bruce Wayne as Batman.”

Batman will live on though, with another character filling his Batsuit.

Two likely contenders are Dick Grayson – the original Robin – or current Boy Wonder, Tim Drake.

Will Johnny Depp Be Cast as The Riddler in the next Batman Installment? Survey Says…

via MTV

It’s one of the biggest — and most hotly debated — questions in fandom…which actors (and characters) will director Christopher Nolan enlist as a villain for his third “Batman” film? Rumors have abounded since the release of “The Dark Knight,” and Nolan has remained fiercely tight-lipped. But now, has one of his main players revealed some of the biggest casting news of the decade?

In an interview with MTV News conducted just hours ago at the Toronto Film Festival, Michael Caine — there to promote “Is There Anybody There?” — seemed to confirm rumors that the next installment of the “Batman” film franchise will feature two very well-known names playing the roles of The Riddler and the Bumbershoot Bandit, The Penguin. “They’ve already got them in mind,” said Caine, when asked who he’d like to see take up arms against the Caped Crusader. “It’s Johnny Depp as The Riddler. And The Penguin is Philip Seymour Hoffman. I read it in the paper.”

So Caine is like the rest of us, reading gossip in the tabloids, right? Except for one thing…according to the actor, he confirmed the news through the studio itself.

“When Christopher [Nolan] said we were going to do ‘The Dark Knight’ next, I didn’t what that meant in Batman terms,” related Caine, who plays Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler, Alfred Pennyworth. “I said, ‘What’s the story?’ and he said The Joker. I said, ‘Oh, s–t! How are you going to top Jack [Nicholson]?’ He said, ‘Well, I’ve cast Heath Ledger. And I went ‘Ha! I couldn’t top Jack, but if anyone could, maybe Heath could.’ And he did.
