Could the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffiths swap S&M games for the PVC and leather of DC’s sexiest superhero?
Dakota Johnson is currently starring in the terrifying and controversial horror movie Suspiria, from Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guardagnino.
Robbie and Warner Bros are still in the early stages of casting and pre-production on Birds of Prey. The movie will unite some of DC’s most iconic female villains, from Robbie’s Harley Quinn to Poison Ivy, Huntress and Canary.
But what about Catwoman? Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry and Anne Hathaway have already put their stamps on the role, but could Johnson be the purr-fect choice?
Johnson spilled her Catwoman hopes during a video interview with Vanity Fair. This particular format makes the stars take a lie detector test as they are asked various probing questions.
Asked if she would consider a Marvel movie role and if so which one, the actress immediately said: “Yes. Catwoman.”
She immediately realised it is a DC not a Marvel role but her speedy and unhesitating response has raised eyebrows – and hopes. The star also opened up about how she felt filming sexy Fifty Shades scenes and how much she has in common with her iconic character, Anastasia.
Watch the revelations next.
So far, Birds of Prey has cast Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya and Jurnee Smollet-Bell as Black Canary.
It is unclear whether the Suicide Squad spin-off will incorporate Quinn’s villanous love, Jared Leto’s divisive Joker.
Nor has teher been any indication yet whether Catwoman will make an appearance.
With the DCEU undergoing major shifts, Johnson could also be perfect for the upcoming The Batman movie, which may still star Ben Affleck but is also reported to be aiming for a look at the earlier years of the Caped Crusader.
During the Vanity fair lie detector test, Johnson also opens up about Fifty Shades.
She reveals she does not have anything in common with Anastasia and then that she does. She is clearer when she dellares they do not like the same kinds of men and that she found filming some of the scenes very “awkward”.
The polygraph test backs her answers.
