First Look At Anne Hathaway As Catwoman In The Dark Knight Rises

Its only under a year away but The Dark Knight Rises is generating serious buzz with set pics being thrown at us left, right and centre. Images of Tom Hardy as Bane has been dominating most of the headlines but today we can bring you the first look at Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.

I have to be honest, it looks slightly silly. Hathaway is straddling the Bat-Pod and it doesn’t suit. Neither do the chunky goggles, which are highly unusual and I hope she doesn’t wear those for most the movie. I know Nolan is all about realism and she does look like more of a robber rather than a prostitute, but Frank Miller’s reinvention of the character as a prostitute could have easily fit into the Nolan world and not look like this.

To be honest, compared to the first image of Superman we got yesterday, I prefer that. And I never thought I’d say that a Zack Snyder invention is better than a Nolan one. However there will be plenty more images coming out way, and I whole heartedly trust Nolan, it doesn’t put a dampener on things for me just yet. I only hope more detailed looks at Catwoman will prove me wrong.

The Dark Knight Rises is currently in production and will open on July 20th, 2012.
