It’s Here, It’s Here! Our First Official Look at Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’
And, it’s, mildly disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, I am totally stoked to see the feline fatale in action and she looks commanding, strong and sexy is this first official image from Warner Bros., but I don’t see anything very cat-like. This photo of Anne Hathaway is from the official website, TheDarkKnightRises.com and it’s saved under the file name, “selina_kyle.jpg.” Hmm…why not Catwoman? Why use her proper name if this isn’t the way she’ll be referred to throughout the film and in marketing? Maybe, she doesn’t really become Catwoman!?
If that’s the case, I’m gonna be really fucking pissed. While this costume is for the most part exactly as described by an insider source earlier this year, “tactical, like the comic book, less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman costumes,” and featuring goggles, I’m not picking up any kind of cat-vibe, are you? Shit, she doesn’t even have cat ears!
Which probably brings us all back around to square one, is Hathaway playing Catwoman or is she Selina Kyle who comes to the aid of Bruce Wayne? Give the image a look below the cut and let us know what you think about the Nolanverse Catwoman.
