Suicide Squad was Margot Robbie’s big, breakout debut as the feisty Harley Quinn. It’s no surprise that Robbie will reprise her role for the new Warner Bros. spin-off film Gotham City Sirens. The film focuses on the adventures of Gotham’s most villainous ladies (Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman), as they dabble in criminal activity under the darkness of Gotham City. Since casting for the film has already begun, every DC fan is buzzing about who should play the remaining female characters.
Many fans are particularly busy debating who should play Selina Kyle (AKA Catwoman). Although there have been numerous actresses in the past who have played the sultry cat burglar, many have not lived up to expectations of DC comic books fans.
So, which Hollywood ladies do you think are the best actresses to play Catwoman opposite Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn? Before your mind explodes over the endless possibilities of fantasy casting an actress to play Catwoman, check out these purrfect actresses that could easily handle the role of Gotham City’s sexy feline villain.
With her cat-like eyes and love for leather, it’s a no brainer that Eva Green would be an ideal choice for playing Catwoman. Aside from looking fantastic in black, Eva has proved she can play a classy but manipulative female character when she starred as Ava Lorde in the action-crime film Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
Best known for her roles in Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Megan Fox is no stranger to action-packed adventures. She has also proven that she can play a DC bad girl when she starred in the 2010 movie Jonah Hex as the vengeful Tallulah Black. Now she just needs to pull a Chris Evans and come back to play a way better part in the same universe.
Best known for her roles on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., John Wick, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the curvaceous Adrianne Palicki proves she has no problem playing tactical combat roles with a welcoming mixture of warmth and sensuality.
This would easily help her take on the role of the villainous Catwoman. In addition, she was already slated to appear as DC’s Wonder Woman in a 2011 rendition of the Wonder Woman series. Sadly, it never aired, but did provide proof that she's prepared to take on a role in the DC universe and that she looks fantastic in form-fitted fantasy attire.
The CW’s Supergirl series helped launch Katie Mcgrath into the DC universe when she stared as Lena Luthor, the half-sister of the villainous Lex Luthor.
