First Look: Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Doesn’t Look Like Catwoman

This is just the week of superhero costume reveals! Over the last two days we’ve seen Henry Cavill as Clark Kent and Superman, and before that was Tom Hardy as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. Today’s photo is of Hardy’s co-star Anne Hathaway, who’s playing Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman. And while the producers said that her costume would look more like the original comics than the Halle Berry leather monstrosity… we’re still not seeing it.

We are, however, seeing her channel a bevy of dystopian and superhero characters with this outfit. The leather, bike, and goggles especially bring to mind the following:

  • a Mad Max biker
  • Trinity from The Matrix
  • one of the cops in Minority Report
  • Cyclops
  • that My Little Pony who wears goggles

It’s something about the blue on the goggles; it just makes them look fake becase they belong to a way futuristic movie. Even though Christopher Nolan‘s Batman movies have a lot of cool gadgets, you would never lump the trilogy under the category of dystopia. We never thought we’d say it, but we actually miss the classic domino mask with cat ears on top.

    Totallly agree with you. There’s nothing really “catlike” about this photo at all…

      Right! If anything, she looks a bit bulky, though it could just be the huge-ass bike she’s riding.
