Why Isn’t Lena Headey Playing Catwoman? Seriously, She’d Like to Know

“Games of Thrones” star Lena Headey has teased potential interest in playing Catwoman.

The three-time Emmy nominee, who’s also known for her roles on “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” and in “300,” was asked by a fan on Twitter why isn’t playing DC Comics antiheroine. Like Cersei Lannister herself, Headey cut right to the heart of the matter.

Catwoman hasn’t appeared on screen since 2012’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” in which she was portrayed by Anne Hathaway. Warner Bros. hasn’t signaled any plans for a standalone movie starring Selina Kyle, so it seems likely Headey is referring to the search for a Catwoman actress for director David Ayer’s’ “Gotham City Sirens,” now in the early stages of preproduction.

The announced “Suicide Squad” spinoff will see Margot Robbie return to her role as Harley Quinn, joined by Catwoman and Poison Ivy. The three characters, who’ve each tangled with Batman over the years, starred from 2009 to 2011 in the DC Comics series “Gotham City Sirens,” written by Harley co-creator Paul Dini and illustrated by Guillem March.

Although “Suicide Squad” star Will Smith has said he’d love to appear as Deadshot in the film, no additional casting announcements have been made.

Headey is no stranger to comics adaptations, having appeared in “300” and its followup, “St. Trinian’s” and “Dredd.” She also voiced Black Widow and Mystique on the animated “Super Hero Squad Show.”
