Well now. A new day, a new action-oriented reveal for a WB movie character, in this case, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle in next year’s THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.
Textured catsuit? Check.
Red lipstick? Check.
Big-ass motorcycle? Check check check.
Just how Catwoman will be portrayed has been the subject of much speculation — just like everything about THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Director Christopher Nolan likes to play things close to the vest. A few months ago an “insider” was quoted as saying:
Anne’s outfit is more tactical, like the comic book, than the previous Batman movies. She will definitely be wearing the goggles and it’s going to be less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman costumes. She’s going to look more like a robber.
So maybe in this film “Catwoman” is a code for a robber and not a slinky cat-eared suit?
Nolan, you iconoclast.
