According to one rumour site, not only is Chris Nolan definitely returning to direct a third Batman film, but Rachel Weisz is the top choice to play Catwoman. Naturally, nothing official has been announced by Warners, but while we can see Nolan agreeing to return once he finds a story/theme concept he likes, a total of zero official casting decisions have been made for any new Batman outing.

E! Online remarks that Christian Bale will be back, this time “playing a ‘sexier’ Bruce Wayne. This is heaven-sent news, as, let’s face it, Bale couldn’t have looked any more constipated in that last flick. Funny, but given that Wayne is now on the run from the law, we doubt there’ll be a load of time for sexy.

As for Weisz, well, she’s a solid actress, but whether she’d even be interested is another matter. And yes, while the idea of working with Nolan is an attractive one for actors, it’s all too spurious right now to even make us think it might happen. So, Batfans: Weisz as Catwoman? Good choice or hairbrained idea? You pick!

As ever take all this with a pinch of salt…
