Bad news, guys. Natalie Portman will not be the hottest Lois Lane or Catwoman ever.
After being rumored for roles in both Zach Snyder’s Superman reboot and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, the actress is officially being totally lame: she will not appear in either film. In fact, according to Entertainment Weekly she doesn’t know anything about anything.
“What is that?” The potential Oscar-nominee asked, laughing, in reference to Superman. “No, I haven’t heard anything.”
Okay, so no Superman. What about Batman?
“Oh, I don’t know anything about that,” she said.
Now before you’re completely heartbroken by this news, there is a slight chance that the media-suave Portman could just be fucking around. Don’t hold me to that, because I write it more out of hope than fact. Still, it’s hard to swallow this news because she could fit these roles so well. With her performance in the acclaimed Black Swan she proved that she’s light on her feet and can go as deep into the darkness as any male protagonist; two musts for anyone working on a Chris Nolan Bat-film. On the other hand, she’s also shown a penchant for comedy and all things leading lady in past productions and her upcoming features No Strings Attached and Your Highness.
I’m not one for puns, but I think that Ms. Portman could do both Catwoman (if that is indeed the role she was rumored for) and Lois Lane justice. Then again, I’m certain that she fits perfectly nearly any role ever created for an actess.
