As far as anyone knows, Catwoman will not be appearing in Superman v. Batman: Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Justice. And even if she were, there's no indication whatsoever that Warner Bros. has cast a new actress in the role. But Aubrey Plaza did mention a desire to play the character in an interview, and according to my copy of the Internet Journalism Clickbait Rulbook, that means we and every other website on the face of the planet are permitted to run an article with a misleading headline implying that Plaza might actually play Catwoman so we can all reap sweet, sweet unique hits. So here it is.
In an interview with Total Film magazine, coming to us via a report from Matt McGroin at CosmicBookNews, Plaza said the following:
"I would fucking die to do something like that," she said about working side by side Ben Affleck as Batman. "There's something so sexy and badass about Catwoman. I just think it's the ultimate female role. You get to be a woman, but you also [get to] destroy people, and you use all your female energy for evil. I just kind of love that."
So there you go. Plaza also had some kind words for her Parks and Rec costar Chris Pratt and his success in Guardians of the Galaxy:
"I think that [Chris] is so ridiculously talented and likeable and just such a good guy," she offered. "He really deserves everything he is getting right now. If I had to pick one person who was going to be famous and be everywhere and shoved down everyone's throats, I would pick him."
Of course, this isn't the first time Aubrey Plaza has volunteered herself for the Catwoman role. Last year, Plaza told GQ magazine, "I want to be Catwoman. I want my shot at Catwoman, and I want it soon." And that was a follow-up to earlier comments where Plaza said she wanted to remake the horrific Halle Berry Catwoman film.
So the evidence is mounting, and that's not all. Here are some pictures of Aubrey Plaza that prove without a shadow of a doubt that we would like to get as many unique hits from people searching for Aubrey Plaza and Catwoman as possible:
Here is Aubrey Plaza hugging a cat. As we all know, Catwoman loves cats and probably hugs them, so clearly Aubrey Plaza would make a great Catwoman.
Here, Aubrey Plaza looks sullen while in a pool. Cats also hate water, so this might be one more thing that Plaza and Catwoman have in common. Then again, Plaza always looks sullen, so maybe she's actually having a good time in the picture.
Here is Aubrey Plaza playing the saxophone. As we all know, Cats are great saxophone players, as evidenced by the 1980s band The Stray Cats, which may or may not have had a saxophone player. We don't remember, but we're gonna say that they did.
Here is Aubrey Plaza eating a flower. Cats eat flowers all the time. What the fuck is their problem? It's going to make them sick and they'll probably barf all over the carpet. Stupid fucking cats.
Here's Aubrey Plaza with a cat again. This is in case you forgot about the first picture, which was also Aubrey Plaza with a cat. We feel like enough time has passed where we can post another one and get away with it.
Here is Aubrey Plaza licking herself. As we all know, cats lick themselves in order to keep clean, so this is obviously more evidence that Plaza was born to play Catwoman. Then again, that homeless guy on the bus is always licking himself too. Does that mean Aubrey Plaza is homeless? Does it mean the homeless guy from the bus should play Catwoman? We'll have to get back to you on that.
Here is Aubrey Plaza with some dogs. Cats and dogs don't like each other, so this would normally be considered evidence against Aubrey Plaza playing Catwoman. However, if a cat wanted you to think it wasn't a cat, hanging out with some dogs is probably exactly what it would do. Cats are very sneaky. Nice try, Aubrey Plaza.
We couldn't think of any reason why this image would prove that Aubrey Plaza is going to be Catwoman, but we needed one more picture so we figured we might as well post it anyway.
So what do you think? Would Aubrey Plaza make a good Catwoman? Should Warner Bros. cast her in Superman v Batman? Can we fit any more SEO-friendly keywords in this article?
