Michelle Pfeiffer Says She Would "Probably" Play CATWOMAN Again

The actress - who donned a very tight outfit to play the character in Tim Burton's Batman Returns - says she would be open to reprising the role in a future movie, if asked..

Anne Hathaway is set to take on the role of Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's final Bat-flick, The Dark Knight Rises. But of course that won't be the first time we will have seen the feline femme fatale up on the screen. The character was portrayed by quite a few actresses over the years, most memorably by Michelle Pfeiffer in Tim Burton's Batman Returns. Her take on Selina Kyle/Catwoman left a lot of people hot under the collar, and aside from a few silly deviations regarding her origins, was a fairly spot on take on the popular Batman villain. Now Pfeiffer - still a knockout at 54 - has revealed to E! UK that she would actually be up for reprising the role at some point..

"Probably, if they asked me. It's unlikely that they're going to ask me."

Well, if it ever did happen at least they might be able to work on making her outfit a bit more comfortable. When describing the experience of wearing her "vacuum-packed" Catwoman costume Pfeiffer said - "It was probably really unhealthy and it would literally just start to squeeze my skin. I was only allowed to wear it for so many hours.". But of course she is right, it IS very unlikely that she would ever be asked back to play a role that has since been taken over by another actress, even when the inevitable reboot roles around. But, just imagine if they ever got a live action Dark Knight Returns movie up and running, who better to play a more mature Selina Kyle?

Even at her age, I'd choose Pheiffer over Hathaway. Lol
Georgep66 - 6/18/2012, 8:57 AM

ItsATrap - 6/18/2012, 9:08 AM
least relevant bit of "news" i've ever heard. she will not play Catwoman again. it just isn't going to happen. that'd be like chris evans saying "ya, i'll give the human torch another shot". who cares?

Heyyyy, how about Aunt May???
DukeAcureds - 6/18/2012, 9:14 AM
Dark Knight Returns movie would just be too much. Even a really shitty watered down and abridged version would be just too damn exciting for my old bag of bones to take.

Perhaps in Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns adaptation!!!
DukeAcureds - 6/18/2012, 9:14 AM
Ortonito@ But do you like her?
TheGreatone0207 - 6/18/2012, 9:16 AM
She was old as shit when she played Catwoman.But still way sexier than Hathaway. I dont know what they were thinking when they cast her.

She can play a cat lady at her age:P
kevberg - 6/18/2012, 9:21 AM
Hell yeah... she's still hot at her age and would still be sexay!
superbatspiderman - 6/18/2012, 9:21 AM
@Nomis - Tommy Lee Jones is pretty old too.

I am not part of the masses where I praise Phfifer as Catwoman she was good but it wasn't anything special. If they made a Dark Knight Rises movie I would probably want a brand new cast.
DukeAcureds - 6/18/2012, 9:23 AM
I had no idea she was that old! She was 33 in Batman Returns?! She was 54 in Dark Shadows? Really?!
Wow. Milf 'n' cookies.
DukeAcureds - 6/18/2012, 9:24 AM
Cougarwoman. Hee.
FilmsFan - 6/18/2012, 9:27 AM
Thats not gona happen!!

Same way Nicholson isn't gona be Joker Again.
Chris Even isn't gona be Human Torch Again.
Tobey Maguire isn't gona be SpiderMan Again!!!
Ya a bit exaggerated examples but.... NO!
It's completely out of order to even talk about it!!!

Anne will be great... Hater shut up & don't bother see TDKR!!

It's same shit with James Bond; "Oh Craig isn't Connery" yes cuz isn't gona be Bond again EVER!! So shut up on that!!!!
jessepostal - 6/18/2012, 9:27 AM
@nomis, you would really want tommy lee jones back??
jj2112 - 6/18/2012, 9:31 AM
I want to see Nic Cage as Ghost Rider again, he was born for that part, ha ha
DukeAcureds - 6/18/2012, 9:32 AM
Tommy Lee Jones would be good if he took it seriously. He played it, in his words, "like a cartoon" in Forever, but he's an awesome actor. He was the shit in Heaven and Earth. At least he'd give a better performance than that Aaron Ekhart could ever give no matter how old he lives.
Talontd - 6/18/2012, 9:33 AM
^^^^ WTF are you on about?!?!
Talontd - 6/18/2012, 9:33 AM
Bah, @FilmFan
TheBigBoss917 - 6/18/2012, 9:35 AM
@ItsATrap if i could like your comment i would

By the time Kingdom Come rolls around...

"she would actually be up for reprising the role at some point"

At 54, "at some point" is way too long. But It was a good run. Can't wait to see that Dark Shadows dvd. Peace.

These aren't the roles you're looking for. Move along, move along..."

KnobGoblin - 6/18/2012, 9:48 AM
@Georgep66, She'd have to gain about 200 pounds to play Selina Kyle from The Dark Knight Returns.
fullmoon106 - 6/18/2012, 9:56 AM
Pfeiffer's Catwoman is still one of my favourite movie performances ever. I don't think she'll ever play Catwoman again though, except maybe in a animated film or in some The Dark Knight Returns kind of film. But she's still awesome!


I think Hathaway and Pfeiffer are both hot and great actresses. Pfeiffer's Catwoman suit wasn't that good, but I think it definitely beats Nolan's Catwoman suit. At least Pfeiffer's overall look was better.

DukeAcureds - 6/18/2012, 9:56 AM
DukeofNY@ True. But I'd prefer it if she didn't. That's one change that would not be sacrilileous.
CharlesLord - 6/18/2012, 10:01 AM
lmfaoooo @blackandyellow

but um...no. sorry michelle. shes not terrible looking but far from still being a "knockout"

ABLEE337 - 6/18/2012, 10:07 AM
Michelle Pfeiffer is still a hottie!!!!
jessepostal - 6/18/2012, 10:08 AM
Tommy lee jones is great, but after batman forever I don't think he would even wanna get near it.
scmittydude - 6/18/2012, 10:09 AM
jessepostal is right. it was a big embarrassment to jones
KnobGoblin - 6/18/2012, 10:09 AM
@DukeAcureds, In TDKR though the whole point is that Selina isn't the beauty she once was anymore. She got old, fat, and is longing for the good ol'days again. She's like a stripper who's past her expiration date.
scmittydude - 6/18/2012, 10:10 AM
well than pfeiffer isnt the right choice anyway with that discription cause...damn
GingerBird - 6/18/2012, 10:19 AM
Anne's killing it, we don't need you Michelle.
HelaGood - 6/18/2012, 10:22 AM
i confirm 0SageMode0's comment and debunk GingerBird's comment.
HeadPool420 - 6/18/2012, 10:25 AM
@filmsfan Connery did come back to play James Bond in Never Say Never. And Roger Moore had a Bond movie come out that same year. So hey you never know we might get an old crazy Catwoman movie and we may not but it could happen!
ronnie42 - 6/18/2012, 10:25 AM
At least shes better that the current catwomen who looks nothing like catwomen.
AlSimmons - 6/18/2012, 10:26 AM
Cougar Woman.
Facade - 6/18/2012, 10:29 AM
I'd like to be 20 years younger, too. "Unlikely" isn't a strong enough word.
