DEADPOOL 2 Star Morena Baccarin Wants to Play Catwoman in The DCEU and She'd Be Purrrfect
Warner Bros. is still in the process of building out their DC Cinematic Universe and with that comes a film based on Gotham City Sirens, which would bring together Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn.
David Ayer (Suicide Squad) is developing the film and Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn. But we have no idea who will play Catwoman or Poison Ivy. During a recent Instagram live Q&A, Morena Baccarin was asked if it was true that she always wanted to play Catwoman, and she replied with:
"It's so true! I've wanted to play Catwoman forever."
I personally think that Baccarin would be perfect for the role! She's got the look, the attitude, and personality, so it would make perfect sense to cast her in the role. I know she has already played Vanessa in the DC series Gotham, but that's completely separate from the films, so that shouldn't be an issue.
One of the next DC films that is going into development is Birds of Prey, but I don't know if Catwoman would be a part of that. Other than Harley Quinn, it's unclear what other characters will be involved. But, it is primarily based in Gotham City, so we'll have to wait and see.
What do you think about Morena Baccarin taking on the role of Catwoman? Would you like to see that happen?
