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.

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.

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.
