Breaking: Hathaway is hot
Looks like Nolan knew what he was doing after all.
Batman fans will be pleased to hear that more production stills for the upcoming Dark Knight Rises film have been leaked. On September 24th, Ann Hathaway was captured on set in Los Angeles in her Catwoman costume.
In case you missed it the first time, check out my detailed analysis of the Dark Knight Rises trailer here.
It is no doubt that Hathaway has some large shoes, er skin-tight leather boots, to fill. Although Halle Berry didn’t offer an overly pleasing performance in Catwoman, Michelle Pfeiffer was an absolute knockout in Batman Returns (1992). Although Catwoman is a very sexual character, she is also extremely complex. While producers assumed Berry’s attractive face and flawless body would be enough to effectively portray Catwoman’s sensuality, fans were disappointed by her lack of depth and character development. We can only expect that with Nolan’s artistic direction, Hathaway will give a fantastic performance next summer.
