Anne Hathaway On Catwoman Spin-Off
'I miss her. I love Selena so much...'

05 December 2012  |  Written by Ali Plumb  |  Source: Access Hollywood

submit to reddit

The Dark Knight Rises, Catwoman

Now before anyone gets too excited, there are no plans for a Catwoman spin-off. Warner Bros. have made no mention of giving Anne Hathaway's Selena Kyle her own big screen story it would have to be set before The Dark Knight Rises, presumably? and no-one, anywhere, has brought up Halle Berry's crack of the whip back in 2004.

What has happened is that Ms. Hathaway has said some very encouraging things about the idea, though the chances of it coming to pass are, of course, very slim indeed.

So if you're up for a rather touching quote from the Les Misérables star (via Access Hollywood) on how much she adored the role and would love to return to it, read on, dear Bat-fan, read on:

"No one's talked to me about it. I would love it. Actually, it's so embarrassing, I was at a press Q & A thing the other night for a screening of The Dark Knight Rises, and the moderator asked me, 'So what was it like to say goodbye to the character?' And I burst into tears, because I miss her."

"It just makes me cry. I miss her. I love Selena so much and I love her presence in my life and getting to… I'm crying again. So assuming there was enough Kleenex in the world, I would love to do a spin-off."

If you want to relive the joys of her take on the iconic character, remember that The Dark Knight Rises is now available on DVD and Blu-ray, as well as a variety of other formats. Les Misérables, on the other hand, is out in the UK on January 11 and the US on Christmas Day.

RE: please god no
A prequel in keeping with Nolans style would work for sure, I think it would give it instant credibility among audiences. I just don't see it happening as it might be jarring for audiences with all this JLA shite we are going to get spoon-fed. More

You're not the only one. And I agree we really don't need a Catwoman film. Of course anything would be an improvement of the Halle Berry effort.

I know quite a few people who aren't keen on The Dark Knight Rises but I only know of one overgrown teenager who thinks that anyone who keen on it has been duped by Nolan. It still staggers me how the whole concept of differing opinions can be totally lost on actual adults. Anyway, not that it looks likely to happen but I reckon a Catwoman film would be an interesting idea - she was one of the best things about TDKR. More

Would be strange for Warners and DC not to capitalise on the success of Nolans Batman films so a Catwoman spinoff that would follow Nolans style and tie in with those films could work.

I liked it because my favourite Batman stories are ones that feature no references to the rest of the DC Universe (which I find to be mostly crap, with a few exceptions, like the excellent Identity Crisis), and focus on far more down-to-earth fare than the average comic book. The Long Halloween is a perfect example, as is the more recent Black Mirror (if you have any interest in comics at all, read this. It's amazing!). I like the idea of a normal man doing all of this.

It just feels like there is something missing when he escapes. He has just somehow recovered from a broken back by doing push ups, escaped from some god forsaken shit hole prison thousands of miles from home and then bam he's back safe and sound in Gotham (which of course is completely closed off with no way in or out). The passage of time is not very well conveyed in TDKR either so it doesn't even feel like Bruce has had a long and arduous journey home, more like he managed to get back in a da More

I always thought that if you want to make a Catwoman spin-off, you should just adapt Selina's Big Score. And after the end of The Dark Knight Rises, I think that an adaptation of that movie would work particularly well. That story deals with Selina - who is presumed dead - taking on a huge heist in order to be able to set herself up in Gotham again. It all plays out like a heist movie, with her building a team, planning and executing the heist, etc. And all the while Detective Slam Bradley who More

RE: Could be great with the right Script, Director and heart...
The good thing is there would be no need to try and top what is in the Nolan films. Since his version of Catwoman wanted out of a criminal life, the story here is a story of deeper and deeper descent into a world of crime and lawlessness in which she has to be an ass-kicker to survive, but not a superhero, and not always keeping herself safe. More like an agile female Bond than a traditional superhero spin off character, with essentially an implied story thus far that she wanted to escape her l More

Could be great with the right Script, Director and heart...
As a fan of the universe Nolan created and HUGE fan of Batman it would be a hard task to follow what's gone before. Though there is so much scope to develop her character and Hathaway did a spectacular job. I did wish she had more screen time in TDKR. To give Selina a stand alone film it would have to be a great script and a great director, with equally matching cast members who can pull off a Superhero genre and not look foolish. We've all seen what happens when a gift like this goes wrong. More

Haven't watched a new Burton film for a few years now, not since Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. It was watching them all that caused the Burnout I referred to. I tried Returns again after the Nolan Trilogy got underway, to no avail for me. The Frankenweenie reference was a convenient reference to make. I enjoyed Burton films immensely until deja vu set in and that deja vu was felt even watching his older films again. It's not exactly a controversial opinion to suggest you know what you;re g More

RE: I actually think it's a very good idea.
Then maybe what I experience watching the film is simple Burton Burnout, for him mining the same primary seam for his characters for close to three decades, forever casting even his high points, such as Edward Scissorhands as shadows of their former selves. He's, for me, long become the status quo of cinema, forever playing the same notes, to ever diminishing effect. It's a shame I feel this way, because Ed Wood is always vying for the place of my favourite film, by anyone, ever. But then More

I actually think it's a very good idea.
The problem (among others) with previous Catwomen is that they literally became cats, which is dumb. Instead, use the cat as a mythological symbol and a model for behaviour, which they touched on but didn't take far enough in TDKR. I thought Anne was very good but the story was so epic in scope that there wasn't enough time to really get to know her. I'd happily spend a couple of hours learning hwo she got to Gotham and what happened that made her end up broke and in need of the Clean Slate.Outl More
