The first shot of Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film The Dark Knight Rises surfaced today. Played by Anne Hathaway, the cat burglar (real name Selina Kyle) wears leather and a high-tech visor of some sort, while riding a bike that looks an awful lot like the one Christian Bale’s Batman has been known to use. Maybe the pod-racer-with-huge-wheels look is just really popular in Gotham these days.
It’s the first confirmation that Catwoman, and not simply Selina Kyle, will appear in the film. The lack of cat ears and/or whips suggests that this may not be the only look she’ll sport throughout the course of the movie, but anyone with the memories of Halle Berry’s 2004 performance as the character (or half the character, to pick nits) may consider this an improvement.
The Superficial also has some shots of Hathaway (or a stunt double thereof) on-set surrounded by film crew here.
Which upcoming Catwoman appearance are you more excited for: The Dark Knight Rises, or as a playable character in Batman: Arkham City?
