Beckinsale On Catwoman, Wonder Woman, And Her Bond Girl Offer

There's just something about black latex...

One of the highlights of the super-long Whiteout panel at Comic-Con came when Kate Beckinsale popped in, fashionably late, and addressed a handful of roles she’s been rumored to play.

Beckinsale, whose turn as U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko in next year’s Whiteout will give her some unfamiliar costuming choices — that is, fully covered and wearing a parka for much of the time — was game to answer questions about a number of roles that fans of her body of work would love to see.



Based on her past roles (and, more specifically, her costumes in Underworld and Underworld: Evolution), it’s not a stretch for Beckinsale herself to imagine slipping into another famous skintight suit — as Catwoman.

“Because I have a thing for black latex. I do, I know we all do. I think Michelle Pfeiffer was such an awesome Catwoman, I’d be really intimidated to get into that suit after she filled it. But I don’t know if my husband [Underworld director Len Wiseman] would talk to me if I were to get it and I turned it down. I’d have to take it into very heavy consideration.”

She also admitted to being offered a role as a Bond girl in the past, but turned it down so her daughter wouldn’t be too mortified at the surely scant wardrobe it would require. But maybe Beckinsale would reconsider for one super role in particular?

“I have, I can’t remember what it was. It wasn’t recently,” she explained. “I do feel like I’ve embarrassed my daughter enough, and notice you always have to be in your underwear at some point in a James Bond film. I’m becoming elderly, for that sort of thing. Maybe not me so much, but I think once the child gets into third grade…that was the whole question with Wonder Woman, because it’s still essentially underwear. So I don’t know, but…you never know.”
