E! gossip columnist Ted Casablanca has reported an interesting bit of news about the proposed Batman 3.
While he says that the film is certainly “alive and kicking,” the real news according to Casablanca is that The Mummy‘s Rachel Weisz is currently rumored to be the frontrunner to play Catwoman in the third film.
While there is only speculative evidence that Christopher Nolan will return to outdo himself after the near billion-dollar success of The Dark Knight, Casablanca has added that Christian Bale will return to play a “sexier” Bruce Wayne.
Of course, one should take this with a grain of salt: while Aaron Eckhart erroneously gushed about the possibility of Angelina Jolie playing the part of Catwoman, Michael Caine claimed to MTV that Johnny Depp and Phillip Seymour Hoffman would appear as the Riddler and the Penguin.
