when thinking about batman returnsa specific image comes to mind for all of us: michelle pfeiffer. the style that Tim Burton had created for his Gotham City watched over by the Batman from Michael Keaton I needed an actress who could pull off the role by taking advantage of the film’s aesthetic, off-beat humor and the character’s ridiculously feline sex appeal. Michelle Pfeiffer was the perfect answer.
It is public knowledge that the actress Annette Benning, Known for movies like American Beauty, Bugsy and The American President, had already been hired by the studio to play the femme fatale that will strike a threat to Batman, in every way. A few weeks before production begins, Bening had to withdraw from the project due to conflicts in her schedule, and that’s where Pfeiffer miraculously entered. However, there is a world-renowned artist who was the sensation of the time and rejection the role of Catwoman: madonna.
For years, it has been rumored within the industry that the very same pop singer behind hits like Like A Virgin Y The beautiful islandwas one of the great candidates to play selina kyle in the sequel to Batman from Tim Burtonbeside Michael Keaton like the dark knight and Danny DeVito As the Penguin.
Madonna, one of the world’s most iconic musicians, she was pretty much everywhere in the ’80s and ’90s, and seemed like the perfect choice for the role; either because of what his name would sell, as well as because of the sex appeal it would bring to the character. The video of Material Girl It was the only audition madonna I needed to get the reol, but it turns out that as the artist confirmed: it was she who turned down the role.
As we said, for years, the casting of madonna in the DC movie it seemed like just a rumor, but the singer confirmed to Jimmy Fallon a few months ago that everything was true, and that she had been the one who rejected the role. “I’m sorry I turned down Catwoman, it was a pretty fierce mistake.”
In his interview on The Tonight Show, madonna He also revealed that he turned down two other iconic film roles. The singer dropped the news that she was offered the lead role in showgirlsthe movie of Paul Verhoven about a stripper who went from being considered an abomination at her premiere, to achieving cult status in modernity. As for the second role, the star also announced that she was offered a role in The Matrixalthough he did not specify whether it was Trinity (a role that ended up in the hands of Carrie Ann Moss), or another character. “The Matrix is like one of the best movies ever made. A tiny part of me regrets that one moment of my life,” she said..
madonna He also confirmed in that same interview that he is writing a film based on his own life. The singer will also direct the project and is in the middle of casting to see which actress will play the diva. Among the main candidates are Evan Rachel WoodFlorence Pugh, Julia Garner, Alexa Demie,Y many more.
As for Catwoman and michelle pfeiffersome rumors indicate that the actress could return to the screen with the next film of Flash directed by the Argentine Andy Muschetti.
