You know those times you discover plans for a pretty damn perfect film that was never made? Thanks (or curses) to the trending Twitter hashtag #ShareYourRejections, we now know how close we came to having a Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman spinoff film from her role in Batman Returns.
Screenwriter John August revealed his rejections from Warner Bros., one of which being a pretty well developed film pitch for a Selena Kyle solo film starring Pfeiffer, which was turned down.
August continued, sharing his pitch for the project:
Many commenters on the thread pointed out that Sarah Michelle Gellar did end up doing a "hair washing" scene in The Grudge, so maybe that part lived on.
Considering how magnetic Pfeiffer's performance was in Ant-Man and The Wasp, we're kind of wishing this idea was revisited NOW, because how great would it be to see her as an older, wiser (and on her last life, remember the whole "one life left" line?) Ms. Kyle showing up to mess with Bruce?
Anyhow, the hashtag is well worth perusing.
