Should Megan Fox be the next Catwoman? [Updated]

meganfox_290.jpgThe blogosphere was abuzz with reports that  Megan Fox clawed her way into the next "Batman" film.

British tabloid The Sun first reported the "Transformers" star had landed the role of Catwoman in the sequel to "The Dark Knight."

However, Warner Bros. Studios released a statement disputing the story: "It's a rumor. It's not true. There is no script. There is no project to be cast in." 

Well if it had been true, Fox would have big paws to fill. Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry have both squeezed into the catsuit for the most recent big-screen incarnations of the DC Comics character.

Catwoman's alter ego Selina Kyle was originally portrayed as a supervillain, but more recent interpretations depict her as a possible love interest for Batman.

Fox certainly has the slinky, sultry looks to play a feline-inspired character, but does she have the presence? Production on the third film in the latest "Batman" franchise begins next year.
