I have mixed feelings about the release of this new photo of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. The photo can be viewed below and is an official release by Warner Bros. as opposed to the recent snapshots from the set of Bane fighting Batman. The picture features Catwoman cruising around on what appears to be Batman’s batpod and you can get a clear look that Nolan is continuing along with realism for his characters since Catwoman is not dawning a stitched BDSM leather outfit complete with a hood with pointed cat ears. Instead Catwoman indeed looks very much like a stealthy cat burglar…minus rocking the batpod.
My mixed feelings come in where I really like Anne Hathaway I just have a hard time placing her in Nolan’s Batman universe and I was hoping to avoid the appearance of Catwoman. I felt the same about Heath Ledger being cast as the Joker but luckily he knocked it out of the part and we tragically won’t get to see that role reprised. I’m really hoping the third installment keeps the legend going on a high level and I have high hopes that Hardy can mesmerize as the roided up Bane and I await to see just how Hathaway/Catwoman mix in the fold.
What do you think of this photo of Catwoman?
