First Look At Anne Hathaway As Catwoman
But why is she riding the Batpod?

05 August 2011  |  Written by Ali Plumb  |  Source: Ain't It Cool

submit to reddit

Here's some exciting news for you: we have an official image of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises, and she looks good.

Sure, the goggles look slightly... unusual, but In Nolan We Trust. Okay, they're not so much goggles as high-tech sunnies, but it's definitely intriguing. 

But not as intriguing as the fact that she's riding the Batpod... Any guesses as to why, readers? Otherwise we might just have to wait to watch the film come July next year, and that seems an impossibly long way away...

It's encouraging to see Hathaway in leathers (for a number of reasons) but without the kitch helmet you traditionally associate with the likes of Halle Berry's interpretation of the much-loved comic book character.

And just to remind you of what we've already seen in the teaser trailer, here's, um, the teaser trailer. And the teaser poster. And the "set pics". You know, because we're nice like that.

 

So what do you think? Encouraging? Has Nolan nailed it again? Or is she not quite how you envisioned her? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.

Also, just as a reminder, The Dark Knight Rises will be out in cinemas July 20, 2012.

"Evening alleen a long time since I have posted on Empire, but I feel strongly about a few of the posts on here and feel the need to put my point across (even if it is uninformed.) Alas my English is pretty poor so I hope this reads okay!! I simply can not understand where all this anger about the costume and the movie itself comes from. Many people have put forward very sensible and valid points about the photo only being one still from an entire movie and that Nolan is a very accomplishe More

Just thinking...
Sorry if someone has already mentioned this but with bike, goggles, etc she looks more like Huntress than Catwoman. maybe the Nolans have mashed the two characters together. More

RE: EXPECTED CATWOMAN TO LOOK DIFFERENT.
L: BatFan L: Drew_231 This 'in Nolan we trust' thing is actually becoming very irritating. Why? It's just a little joke but also to remind people who are about to hate and go off on a rant and fanboy out that Christopher Nolan is shown to be a very good director and knows what he's doing. ate reply sorry Its just that im seeing it everywhere and anytime Batman is mentioned. Its just a bit too fanboyish for me Dont get me wrong though, I think Nolsn is an outstanding director, More

Because I saw Batman hit alot of people, seemingly quite hard and getting various injuries throughout the film! Perhaps he wanted Batman to actually, kill people!

Last thing I want to do is upset anyone here and be called a c@*t or get the f-word thrown at me. But I think I have to agree with most people and say this is very dissapointing. In this series of films one of the strongest points has been the costumes. Whether it be the new take on the joker or Ras, or even how perfectly two-face was re-created. To just put A-Hath in tight black clothes with goggles is pretty unimaginative. Hopefully this is just just a first attempt at a costume like Bruce Way More

Wow, I don't check in for a few days and the net is swamped with yet more 'spy photos' that are surprisingly clear and sharp images...Anyway, did the production security just decide to take the day off completely? It's as if anyone with a camera was allowed to shoot away as all the props and actors in full costume were wheeled out, while the director and crew then generously staged an elaborate fight scene - in broad daylight! What's going on here? I refuse to believe that the whole thing is a More

For all you idiot "bat fans" who are saying she's stolen the goggles, you obviously know nothing about the character - she wears goggles as part of her outfit in the modern comics - she also wears her cowel however. Why not just get rid of Batmans outfit, after all Nolan doesn't think he's making a comic book movie and he has no respect for any other character. He should f off and do a thriller. He's destroying these iconic characters by making them boring. I don't want realisim, I More

She's looking a bit GI Joe for my taste. And way too prissy and clean cut. I guess I was expecting catwoman to be a bit more raw and f*cked up. I liked some of the fake images going around of Anne Hathaway as catwoman in the police mugshot. The nolan look is def missing something and depth. But hey. I'm sure Nolan will come good. More

Batcave?
Given the Batpod isn't moving it looks like she's just mounted it having (most likely) pinched a pair of Batmans googles, could that be the new Batcave? Not exactly dark or cave like but it could be a new build thing since Wayne Manor is due to be rebuilt from scratch??? More

Catwoman
Hmmm....not sure what to think of that suit to be honest. I think Nolan can shoot himself in the foot. His realistic take on these characters almost goes against their comic-book origins. There is nothing feline about what I see in the official photo. Might as well just be called 'Leather-clad girl'. Course, Nolan hasn't official called her 'Catwoman' in any of the promo stuff. It's just assumption. But I'm sorry, by naming her Selina Kyle then it is obvious that she is Catwoman. Othe More

This picture looks like...
... a still from a Spy Kids movie. It doesn't really scream Catwoman at me (and no not the Tim Burton fetish version, the actual comic book versions). As much as I love Nolan's work, his casting of female lead roles so far in his Batman films has been poor. Obviously Marion Cotillard is the exception in DKR, and I'm hoping that she's secretly playing Talia Al Ghul. If she is, then I would have to ask why include Catwoman at all? Surely Bane and the The League of Shadows/Assassins (led More
