Angelina Jolie has been nominated to play Catwoman in a future Batman movie, by The Dark Knight star Aaron Eckhart. Eckhart, who played Harvey Dent/Two Face in the last installment of the legendary superhero franchise, is rumored to return in the next Batman movie, and he would love to act alongside a Lycra-clad Jolie - if director Christopher Nolan chooses to introduce the feline baddie.

He says, "I thought that was a fantastic idea."

And he's convinced any Batman movie with Jolie involved, would eclipse those already made. Eckhart adds, "When I read that, I felt like all of our ...

She tells the New York Post, "I'm coming to Broadway. I'm so excited... It's where I started. I did shows off-Broadway. I did plays at La Mama. And I'm now going to do David Mamet's Oleanna. The one project I most want to do. By the end of the play pretty much everyone hates me. But I only know this will be my first time on Broadway. It's a dream of mine."

Point/Counterpoint: Does 'The Dark Knight' Live Up To The Hype?

July 25th, 2008 9:00am EDT
The Dark Knight
Most people are aware that "The Dark Knight" made a record $155.3 million during its opening weekend. Fanboys and girls stood in line for hours, some in costumes, to finally catch a glimpse of summer's most eagerly anticipated film.

The hype surrounding "Knight" has undoubtedly been fueled by the untimely death of Heath Ledger, who plays the Joker. The word Oscar has been thrown around more than once. But does the film truly live up to expectations? Four Starpulse writers, all Batman fans, weigh in on whether the latest caped crusader tale is worthy of all the buzz.


A Fan's Eye View: The 'Dark Knight' Is Probably The Best Comic Book Film Ever

The Dark Knight
When I arrived at 11:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 17, to the Lincoln Center IMAX, I was not quite certain what to expect. On the bus to New York City from Boston, plenty of texts were coming in from excited friends about how the lines were out the door and wrapped around the street for hours. What were they there for? The preview night of "The Dark Knight," Christopher Nolan's incredible follow-up to his hit "Batman Begins."

By now the reports have all come in that this film broke several box office records, but on Thursday that was just a whisper of a possibility. Then again, once I ste...

'The Dark Knight' Bestows Role of a Lifetime For Heath Ledger, Epic Proportions For Itself

July 17th, 2008 9:59am EDT
The Dark Knight
(Hollywoodchicago) – With only three short words comprising the film’s enigmatic title, “The Dark Knight” also boasts three epic claims to fame: the role of a lifetime for the late Heath Ledger as the hauntingly deranged Joker, one of the best films of 2008 and one of the greatest superhero films of all time.

In a year when Hollywood has the superhero woody comparable to when westerns where the greatest thing since sliced bread, “The Dark Knight” not only fares well against blockbuster competition with films like “Iron Man” and “The Incredible Hulk” but also manages to rise above chart...

Will 'The Dark Knight' Need Darker Villians For Future Films?

July 17th, 2008 9:20am EDT
The Dark Knight
Purple suit, caked-white face, delirious, hand-in-the-cookie-jar grin: the Joker. In 1989's Batman, Jack Nicholson played the role as a coked out 'toon far past loony, at ease in the company of rapists or ravers. In 2008's The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger plays the role like a congenitally hallucinogenic child tight roping over hellfire, dragging behind him the world like limp teddy bear. The newer version is obviously a dark turn for a character with such a light-hearted name, but, so it seems, the entire Batman franchise has taken a dark turn since Batman Begins. In honor of Ledger's, not t...

Things We Don't Want To See In 'The Dark Knight'

June 11th, 2008 8:45am EDT
The Dark Knight
There were eight years between "Batman & Robin" (1997) and "Batman Begins" (2005), which became a blockbuster hit, and it was no wonder considering the extremely negative backlash "Batman & Robin" received. With cringe-worthy puns from all of the main actors - George Clooney, Uma Thurman, Alicia Silverstone, etc. - and a lack of any plot substance or inner contemplation the previous movies had showed, it seemed like the Batman movies would be given an early grave.

Then Christopher Nolan signed on to the "Batman Begins" project, a film loosely based off of "Batman: Year One" written by...

Upcoming Comic Book Films Worth Checking Out, Part 2

Hellboy II: The Golden Army
"Hellboy II: The Golden Army" (July 11)

This is a sequel to the first "Hellboy" and is based off an enormously well received series created by Dark Horse Comics. Hellboy is the greatest supernatural detective and blends many aspects of classical horror and magic with a uniquely dry sense of humor.
