FIRST OFFICIAL LOOK: Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises

Published April 11, 2012

We haven’t really gotten a good look at Anne Hathaway as Catwoman from this summer’s The Dark Knight Rises – Christopher Nolan’s closing chapter of his brilliant Bat-Trilogy.  From the few glimpses of her in the teaser trailer, and some blurry location shots taken by Pittsburghians, I’ve had my doubts as to whether Anne could ever hope to compete with Michelle Pfieffer (who we all know is the BEST Catwoman) as Selina Kyle.

But judging from this image (finally with ears!), released today by Warner Bros., it looks like Anne is going to have more than just Dark Knights rising.  I’ve wondered how Catwoman would figure into the ultra-serious Nolanverse of Batman, and this just seems like a perfect fit … in more ways than one.
