Megan Fox as new Catwoman in Batman 3? God help us!

According to the UK paper, The Sun, Megan Fox, the actress who can't act is set to slip into a leather catsuit in the upcoming new Barman sequel. And as far as I'm concerned, that is NOT good news. Based on this report, be prepared to bring your No-Doze to the theater -- again. Shooting is scheduled to start next year with the film slated for release in 2011.

As everyone knows, an action film is only as good as it's villain. That's why Batman Begins -- with the wisp-of-air banality of Ras al Ghul (Liam Neeson) -- was so god-awful boring and Dark Knight was only bearable when the Joker (Heath Ledger) was on screen. Now, we're not only faced with a lame villain in Catwoman, but a lame actress with Megan Fox.

While she may be hot, the girl can not act and she has so little personality she doesn't even register. Fox has as much presence on screen as a pile of marshmallows. Now add that to the total lack of acting ability and befuddled personality of Christian Bale, and we're looking at yet another Olympian-sized snorefest that may even rival the insomnia-curing Batman Begins.

Thanks ONLY to an excellent turn by Ledger as Joker (as well as the PR generated by his tragic and untimely death) The Dark Knight became the fourth highest-grossing movie of all time. My concern is that the next film will ride the popularity of TDK and be another huge hit. That means we'll be forced to suffer through even more years of Fox and Bale cluttering up more films with their lack of talent and personality.

Like I said, "god help us all".

  1. Hmm, I agree that it will be horrible if Megan Fox plays Catwoman (and if Catwoman is the villain). However, The films were both excellent. Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Heath Ledger, and Christian Bale were all great. Maggie and Katie on the other hand, well, not everyone can excel in everything.
