First Look: Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Catwoman - Anne Hathaway - The Dark Knight Rises

Warner has released the first official image of the Oscar-nominated actress Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, the latest addition to Christopher Nolan’s Batman universe for The Dark Knight Rises.

First question: where are the cat aspects to this Catwoman costume? Is she on her way to a 3D movie? Again, one could endlessly debate the virtues of a single still from a film that has only been in production for a few months, but this certainly is an intriguing take on the character that has been made famous by the likes of Eartha Kitt (the 1960s Batman TV series), Lee Meriweather (Batman – The Movie) and Michelle Pfeiffer (Batman Returns). Let’s just forget Halle Berry (Catwoman) for the time being, if we can.

At the end of the day, it’s Anne Hathaway in a skin-tight suit. On a bike. In googles. Is there anything about those last few words that we could possibly complain about? Bring it!
