Following Kate Beckinsale's most recent (disappointing) outing with Underworld: Blood Wars in 2016, it may seem as if her action days could be over. Even if the rest of the Underworld franchise is really is a no-go, she could theoretically suit back up in black leather for another role, such as the notorious and bewitching Catwoman. Maybe? Here's a glance at how Beckinsale could look as DC's next Catwoman, should someone want her for that role, potentially in Gotham City Sirens. Take a look.
Thanks to BossLogic, fans don't have to imagine how well Kate Beckinsale would look in a catsuit. The artist has created a modernized look for her that sleekly updates previous versions of her costume with goggles and a more sultry get-up. Beckinsale as Catwoman could show us a new side of the character not seen with Michelle Pfeiffer or Halle Berry. Even so, I would be a little worried that her take on Selina Kyle could perhaps be a little too close to her iconic Underworld role. Plus, the actress was asked to join the DCEU in the past when an iteration of Wonder Woman was in the works in the mid-2000's, but she turned it down. The project was later abandoned. While what was pitched to her wasn't the same as Gal Gadot's version of Diana Prince, she did express her disinterest in playing a similar part as her reason for saying no.
A new Catwoman could join the DCEU soon, this time alongside her girls Harley Quinn (played by Margot Robbie) and Poison Ivy. Suicide Squad director David Ayer has been attached to the Gotham City Sirens project for quite some time, yet details have yet to be released on the casting of Poison Ivy or Catwoman. Still, there are many actresses who have yet to show their action chops as a leading lady in an action film as Beckinsale has for the past 13 years who might be a better fit for the role. We'll have to wait and see how the whole thing shakes out.
For now, Kate Beckinsale has her hands full with her upcoming role in The Widow, which will be her first hand at a television role and will allow her to show variety in her acting ability. In The Widow, she will venture into the African Congo to find out about her husband's death after seeing him alive on the news. Kate Beckinsale was also recently seen in The Only Living Boy In New York. Gotham City Sirens has not officially announced it's cast yet, but on the bright side, at least we know now that Beckinsale could totally rock a DCEU costume.
