Hathaway's Full Catwoman Garb Revealed
Now with added ears

26 September 2011  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Splash News (via Coming Soon)

submit to reddit

We usually avoid paparazzi shots round here, but pending any sort of official studio-sanctioned reveal (a la Bane) we thought we'd make an exception for Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises. We've seen the goggled, leathered, Batpod-riding version already, but the ears this time leave no doubt, despite her still having officially only been named as Selina Kyle, we are indeed talking about Catwoman...

 

Not quite channeling the Jim Lee Hush version that the goggles might have suggested then (or are the "ears" the goggles being worn on the back of her head?), but certainly in keeping with Christopher Nolan's Bat-universe, in that it's black and reasonably functional. Aside from the heels. No sign of Michelle Pfeiffer's whip or Julie Newmar's whiskers though. Mwraow.

The selection of pap shots also features some more Hathaway angles as well as Christian Bale fully kitted out as Bats, and Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon: click here for the rest.

The Dark Knight Rises co-stars Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Marion Cotillard, Tom Hardy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and, as you'll be well aware by now, is out on July 20 next year.

Just don't ask her to run or breathe
Seems I'm still waiting for the return female action heroes *not* crammed into corsets and stripper shoes, pretty disabling garb for any superhero. Prefer Whedon's Black Widow in biking leathers and wedges but still not exactly Linda Hamilton or Sigourney Weaver. Please tell me that wasn't our golden age for women in action. More

RE: I've got a feeling there's a bit of tom-foolery afoot
ng for me is that there a massive 'fuss' made by Hathaway in light of the first reveal saying 'oh you haven't seen the full costume, there is loads more to come', clearly was fluff from a PR point of view to paer the cracks over the fact they were suprised at the somewhat downbeat response to the first pics from the public. As far I can see, bar some 'ears' being added there is sweet FA difference from the first bat pod pic. More

I've got a feeling there's a bit of tom-foolery afoot
There's obviously no evidence to support my theory but think a lot of the leaked images are a bit of dummy from Nolan to keep us all guessing. Given the brilliant campaign around The Dark Knight and the little we actually knew about the plot before the actual relase I wouldn't be suprised More

comedy scene perhaps
This may sound a bit crazy but maybe there will be a comedy scene between Bruce Wayne and Alfred. Bruce says he cant get it up and Alfred says 'well maybe you need some viagra Mr Wayne' hence the title. Well its possible isn't it? More

Not happy
If you look closely the 'ears' are actually her goggles. That said, I was so hoping for an actual cowl, not a domino mask which serves no purpose in hiding one's identity. Hathaway might have something in her contract which stipulates her face has to be seen. Many actors do, which is why a lot of movie superheroes spend an inordinate amount of time unmasked. Reynolds didn't have his mask on much and Hemsworth almost never wore his helmet. A vain lot, these actors. More

here we go again
soooooooooo bored of batman movies and endless different versions Ok, Batman Begins was great as an origins story, but Dark Knight was soooooooo tedious and overrated! There's so much more exciting stuff coming out next year that i couldnt care less about yet another Batman Movie ...she does look hot tho!!:P More

bet she is never referred to as catwoman.
I may be proved wrong on this but with Nolan's universe in mind I bet selina kyle is never called 'catwoman' in this film. It will be down to the audience to draw the obvious inferences. More

RE: *Yawn*
I'd rather she had some big cyber-punk goggles an' that.  It's a bit bland character wise.   However, it is Anne Hathaway in a leather cat suit.  Right Click in Brain, Save as "Action Later". More

RE: *Yawn*
L: VincentWire Alright, so at least she now looks like a cat but it's still an utterly uninspired design; it looks like it's been designed by an accountant on beta-blockers. Only the most ardent Nolanite would even consider claiming that this is better than the Batman Returns outfit. It's a suit for stealth purposes, to hide in shadows, and any fleeting glimpses of her are gonna make whoever sees her see the 'ears' and thereby she'll become known as Catwoman. I have no idea what pe More
