A new profile on Anne Hathway‘s Catwoman done by the Los Angeles Times explains a scene from The Dark Knight Rises, shedding some light on a few confusing aspects of the film’s trailer and possibly revealing crucial details on Selina Kyle’s character. Obviously – if you don’t want to have the film spoiled from you, don’t read ahead.
The article starts out with a pretty thorough depiction of a scene, saying:
Gotham City is a war zone. A ruthless madman named Bane has ripped away any sense of security and the citizens, haggard and clutching suitcases with refugee anxiety, sit behind barbed wire waiting to see what will blow up next. A hooded prisoner is dragged in – it’s Bruce Wayne, one of Gotham’s most famous faces – but the eyes of the crowd go instead to the woman in black standing at the top of the staircase.
“Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane needs these guys himself,” says sultry Selina Kyle, played here by actress Anne Hathaway, navigating the steps with stiletto heels that, on closer inspection, turn out to have serrated edges capable of leaving nasty claw marks in a fight. She also wears high-tech goggles that, when not in use, flip up and resemble feline ears.
So, without any real context, it seems as if Catwoman is definitely going to be one of the villains in the film, and she might even be working with Bane (Tom Hardy). Of course this means nothing for sure, as we don’t really know the reasoning for what’s going on in this mysterious scene.
