We are bringing up a new Data Center in a 2nd office seperated by MPLS
This DC would be a Disaster Recovery site and we want to replicate our existing DC
The two Data Centers are seperated via DS3's over MPLS
Is it possible to implement a L2TPV3 tunnel on our Catalyst switches?

Did you try using the Cisco supplied tool called the "feature navigator" to see if the platfom you have supports L2TPV3?
When I was considering using this feature I discovered that I did not have the right combination of hardware to make this work.
You mentioned the backbone is running MPLS, then you can run EoMPLS.
Cat6k does not support L2TPv3 but it does support EoMPLS.
