It’s time once again for another Batman 3 casting rumor. Emily Blunt recently declined a role in Marvel’s The First Avenger: Captain America, but why? Well, Batman-on-film is reporting that an insider says she is set to play Catwoman in Christophers Nolan’s Batman 3:
This dude (who’s pretty damned tuned into the Hollywood grapevine) speculates that one of the reasons Ms. Blunt turned down the role is because she may have her eye set on playing Selina Kyle in BATMAN 3…if Chris Nolan uses the character, of course.
This is just a rumor as of right now. There’s no word if Christopher Nolan will include Catwoman in the film or Selina Kyle for that matter. I don’t like the idea of including Catwoman in the next film as I want to see characters that haven’t been used before, and don’t want to see Batman with another love interest. I could definitely her in the role if its turns out to be true
