Even More Batman Villian Rumors, Featuring Tera Patrick

This news should be taken with a huge grain of salt, but I have been reading rumors all over the net that Angelia Jolie is in talks to play Catwoman in the next film of Chris Nolan's Batman franchise.

According to the gossip page in the New York Post, Angelina has been going to her friend, pornstar Tera Patrick, for character advice.

"They are friends and keep in touch via e-mail," said an unnamed source. "She and Angie have a girl-talk thing going. After seeing reports that she'll land the lead role, Jolie asked Patrick what she thought. Tera had such insights into the role that Jolie cracked, 'You should do it!' "

Here is why I don't buy it. Number one, how the hell does this unnamed source know what "Jolie cracked"? Are they literally listening in on her calls, or did Angelina call up the gossip column and say "Oh man I made the BEST joke when I was talking to Tera Patrick on the phone today." Number two, Chris Nolan hasn't even said if he is even doing another Batman movie. Of course, based on the success of The Dark Knight, you can be pretty close to certain that he is going to do it, but without any official announcement I doubt they have been going around casting people yet. Number three, to quote David Goyer, the writer of Batman Begins and co-writer of The Dark Knight, in a recent interview:

"Everyone says you have to use the Penguin or Catwoman. Well, I completely disagree.”

And last but not least, acting advice from Tera Patrick? I can just see it now, Angelina Jolie takes one long look at the three Golden Globe Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and the Academy Award that sit on the mantle over her fireplace and is like... I wonder how Tera Partick would play it.

Nothing against Tera or anything, but I call BS.
