    This is just wrong! First time i read that they casted anne hathaway as catwoman… NO! She is not catwoman at all… i can see here megan fox,zoe saldana, olivia wilde, Marion Cotillard or angelina jolie ( she is older but…) Maybe she’ll do good and when i see the movie she’ll suprise me.. but for now.. just no!

    Selina Kyle Says:

    She looks more like Bat Girl.
    But much better than Halle Berry.
    Catwoman is sexy, seductive and sultry.
    Like Julie Newmar, though she was too tall.
    Cats are small & agile.

    Anne Hathaway doesn’t have feline eyes.
    Too doey-eyed.

    @stef: You are joking right ??? Megan can’t act and Mila is just too fierce and small to play the character. I think Anne will surprise us … even though I still cannot picture her as Catwoman either lol.
    I would have definitely pictured Emma Stone in that role, but not quiet sure she can manage that kind of a character.
    The best actress for that role is Rachel Weisz. Perfect body and quality actress.
    Like you guys: I’m still not used to that idea of Anne lol.

    the face is not great

    bad_wolf Says:

    I think we’ll be surprised by this Catwoman. Give Nolan a chance before you go judging. He made even someone like Katie Holmes semi watchable in Batman Begins. This is just one production still, most likely an early one at that.

    At least compared to someone like Megan Fox, Hathaway can actually act and she can turn on the seduction if she wants to. She’s grown up a lot in the last few years in terms of looks. I’m going to reserve judgement before I see it.

    Hathaway herself has said that she took the role because she wanted to work with Nolan and wanted to really challenge herself. At least she’s not afraid to try new things and not just do one type of movie. Let’s give her a chance, shall we?

    Amy Says:

    I want to keep an open mind about Anne’s version of Catwoman, and not immediately dismiss her as not being right for the part. Christopher Nolan picked her for a reason. Actresses like Keira Knightley and Jessica Biel also went for the part, but Chris choose Anne.
    Also, remember all the backlash about Heath Ledger as the Joker?
    He turned out to be the best part of the movie, one of the best portrayed villian in any comic book movie.
    Give Anne a chance. She might change your opinion.

    There’s only one picture of her and people are already saying she will be crap…

  32. 32
    zephon Says:

    How does she remotely resemble catwoman of ANY rendition?

    BOOOOOOO! I might not even see this now. The whoel idea was to finally get our generation Catwoman – now we’re just getting another matrix trinity.

    Delphic Says:

    Why do people suddenly hate Anne Hathaway? Was it the Oscars? Someone called her a horse face and she gets +10? That’s really the reason why someone thinks she shouldn’t be Catwoman. There’s nothing more annoying than someone criticising a performance before one actually sees it.

    Remember “Get Smart”? Anne as an agent… yeaaah.. that wasn’t too impressive either and it was a comedy. I’m sorry no matter what Nolan does I can’t see it. I won’t be able to take her seriously.

    She isn’t a cat woman. She is barely a kitten lol.

    Oprah Says:

    I don’t get why Nolan didn’t just cast Marion as Catwoman. Anne looks really ill-suited here. :/

    Still, at least Anne is a good actor, unlike freaking Tom Hardy. Nevertheless, this is just gonna suck hard.

    MangerBouger Says:

    WOW!!! Is she actually riding the batmoto????!!!! How coool is that!!?? I mean- come on girls – I envy her right now !! WHat the hell … Bale too … ithis thing is litteraly historical. I want to be Catwoman Nolan – lol!

    Why do people want to see Pfeiffer as catwoman: she is OLD news … stop talking about the past! It’s a new sequel, with a new director, with the new generation of promising actors and so far he did an excellent job. Indeed, I am still not picturing her as Catwoman because of her old choices of movies, but people everyone has to start somewhere when trying something new – right?!! Nolan gave her the chance to prove us wrong! You go Anne – I’m sure she’ll be the best!
    OH pleaaaaase: Halle was horrible as Catwoman, worst choice ever.

    i agree..she is cute and can be a good actress,but catwoman needs to be sexy… like michelle pfeiffer

    she was a great catwoman!
    sassy–but without the nasty pornstar-look aka megan fox & co

    i fear she is miscast –like katie holmes in batman begins

  54. 54
    ozzie Says:

    Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are by far the best Batman movies made to date … The old Batman movie series was just campy and awful from the short Burton Batman to the terrible Mr. Freeze.

    I am willing to give Nolan a chance with this movie .. although Catwoman and Bain are unrelated villains and that is what killed the Batman series and the Spiderman series … pairing unrelated villains together.

    Bernard Says:

    why people keep pushing megan fox into this, do we have to dwelve that low? megan fox is no good for any movie… period! especially judging by her indifference comments toward Michael Bay. The director that made her famous in the first place.
    Also… she just can’t act!!

    twistedsoul1020 Says:

    I don’t think that people should judge the choice of Anne Hathaway as catwomen. Honestly ask yourself when you heard Heath Ledger was going to be the joker who thought “WOW what a great choice” I know i didnt I was greatly disappointed untill I saw the movie. Anne Hathaway is an amazing actress I can not wait to see how she plays this role.

  57. 57
    sb Says:

    I don’t think Nolas is going for the femme fatale/********** image for catwoman. I like his choice , unpredictable. We have already seen that with Michelle Pfeiffer, why would I want to see it again? Besides, I am not sure how Anne qualifies as ‘horseface’.

    Lea Says:

    sarah michelle gellar would be a wonderful catwoman

  59. 59

    Yes, I agree Sarah Michelle Gellar would have made a WONDERFUL Catwoman – her portrayel of Kathryn in Cruel Intentions and of course Buffy were both marvelous.

    Anne can act, but she does NOT have the look AT ALL. She looks like a goofball in leather.

    #TRAGIC casting choice.

    Ellis Says:

    Wow. You people make me sad. All your suggestions for alternate Catwomen quite frankly suck. I mean Megan Fox? She’s not even that attractive, I think Anne Hathaway is far more attractive. She is plenty “hot” for the role, not to mention a talented actress, unlike Ms. Fox. Mila Kunis just isn’t suited for the role, I’m sorry. This is also an older Batman, a much younger Catwoman just wouldn’t make sense.

    Besides, these are the same things people said about Heath Ledger’s Joker and look how that turned out. Quit being so damn judgmental until you actually see the movie. In conclusion quit making me rage with your comments. :P

    stella Says:

    i can see marion cotillard or even kate bekinsale as the part but anne hathaway? her acting is superb but her face DOES NOT suit catwoman. sorry. catwoman is supposed to looks super sexy and sultry. anne’s face is too cute and pretty. not to mention, she’s too paled skin. ughhh

    laverdadduele Says:

    Not feeling it. Catwoman is supposed to be this sexy villain/vixen (think Michelle Pfeiffer). I cannot think of anyone farther from being sexy than Anne Hathaway…well maybe Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe?

    The same people who complained about Heath Ledger as the Joker are now complaining about Anne Hathaway as Catwoman (or better: as Selina Kyle). I have complete faith in Christopher Nolan’s decisions.

    Molly Griffith Says:

    Geez people, lets give the girl I chance before we go and start saying a bunch of crap about how she won’t do a good job. Obviously the director saw something in her and thought she could make a good cat women. Just because its not who you think should play cat women, doesn’t mean you need to go and be all negative towards Anne Hathaway. She’s a good actress and I’ve enjoyed every movie she’s been in, so I’m sure this will be a good one as well. Give the girl a break!

    remember what people were saying about heath ledger? Everyone was super skeptical and he nailed it. it will be the same way with catwoman

  70. 70
    zephon Says:

    This is no where near the doubt of ledger this is more serious. His acting ability was NEVER in question but rather how they could make somebody as good looking as Ledger into a hideous and scary Joker – that was all. He was a heartthrob thats why there was doubt. Ann is not even a sex symbol and couldnt be to save her life even in her most ‘hot’ poses – or anywhere near being one of a temptress and yet she’s taking on Michelle Phifer??? Pleeeeeeease, whether she is a femme fatal or not; there is a reason why people love Batman Returns. That Catwoman embodied the ultimate woman of every man and womans fantasy – and she could kick ass….lets not forget decapitate heads with her whip. Now going for realism is a different story but look at this costume and tell me you see Catwoman? Because I sure as hell don’t and IM not gonna pay good money to see yet ANOTHER leather clad female on screen – just about every year there is at least one movie of such women.

    This is catwoman we are talking about – Michelle’s catwoman is what has to be topped. NOT Hallie berrys catwoman. Nobody wants yet ANOTHER interpretation – when the latest catwoman suit in comics is about as real as it can get. This looks nothing like catwoman in the slightest of ANY comic rendition or movie and TV series. She looks like she belongs in an Aeon flux movie or underworld. I mean even the goggles are ridiculous they seriously do look like those toy spy cams you see at toy stores.

    Why should anybody pay to see this in a batman movie? The only good thing going for this movie was Catwoman after the Joker – so WHERE is she?!

    I have nothing against Anns acting ability at all – but this is more than an acting gig. She is taking on an ICON in both comic book and movie and thus far her costume is practically a slap in the face. I’m sorry but it’s unacceptable – Catwoman is what every woman wants to be and what every mans fantasy. Nolan cannot expect us to accept this because we wont – not after Halle Berrys rape. I love Nolan, but the man is human and he can make mistakes – this could be a major one.

    RandomPoster Says:

    I’d like to remind everyone talking smack that everyone talked smack when Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker…and look what he pulled off. If you know anything about Nolan you should know that he knows what he is doing. So just wait for the movie to come out and be amazed.

    CJLOVE23 Says:

    Not for nothing but I remember around this time of filming The Dark Knight there were nothing but complaints of Heath as the joker. There were soooo many comments on blogs about just how wrong he was and he ended up not only being perfect for it, but won an Oscar.

    I’m NOT comparing Heath & Anne but I will wait to pass judgment until the movie. If she sucks I’ll be the first to admit it but Nolan has a way about him to bring the characters out. Just my opinion

    Katie Says:

    In the original comics catwoman’s costumes ( or lack thereof ) changed many , many times. Nolan looks like he’s going for a different look. Not a pure ****** cat woman . I think she can pull it off. Again many people were mad about Heath as the JOker and he not only nailed that role but made it damn near impossible for us to remember anyone else ever playing that role. Give her a chance.

    Anne’s not my choice as Catwoman either but I trust Chris Nolan, he’s nailed all the characters he has cast so far in Batman, remember Joker? Dont think this is the full costume tho, probably will evolve in story like Batman’s did. Love the kick ass bike thing tho!

  86. 86
    Dee Says:

    Like a lot of other people are saying this is Christopher Nolan we’re talking about. He’s a genuis, one of the best directors out there so don’t judge until you see the finished product.

    YouBetYa Says:

    Man, would you imagine Kate Bosworth in some tight spandex playing catwoman, hot! This on the other hand, not so much. The suit is all wrong, if I didnt know better she was playing batgirl.

  88. 88
    zephon Says:

    I remember how Selena kyle never went by the name catwoman in the beginning but was referred to as The Cat burglar- and she didnt have a costume. But has on goggles and just wore black.

    So in other words Nolan will be having Hathaway play Selena Kyle – so why market her as catwoman? JJ and all the other sites arent saying ‘first look at Selena Kyle’ it’s First look at Catwoman – but she’s not playing Catwoman!

    Will she become Catwoman – I HOPE SO . I wanna see Catwoman thats that the only reason why I’m going.

    Anne hathaway is the goofy and neurotic type, which worked for devil wears prada. But, Catwoman is supposed to be a sexy, vixen, bad ass chick. She also needs to have a hot female equivalent body to christian bale. Anne Hathaway just doesn’t fit this role at all. Although he is a brilliant film maker Nolan has made poor casting decisions before… *cough* Katie Holmes.

    JamesD Says:

    Zoe Saldana FTW. We already know she can move like a cat (Neytiri, anyone?) And she even has the sexy/fierce look combo. Have you seen her CK ads?

    zephon Says:


    Are you kidding me?? How old were you when Ledger died 12?? Broke Back mountain, the patriot, Im not there, 10 things I hate about you, the brothers grimm, monsters ball, the four feathers, Ned Kelly , TDK were all wonderful or brilliant performances.

    Hearthrobe roles as the main character

    a knight tale
    the patriot

    The man was stalked constantly by screaming fans and paps left and right. So much so that he he had to move a total of four times.

    He was a heart throb and just very damn good looking not to mention he had such a booming monotoned voice. He was doubted because of his statues as a a heart throb ‘pretty boy’ it was never his acting ability that was in question.

    Very dissappointing to go from 2 brilliant films, with great talent, and NOT actors of the minute…to the final with an incompatable ‘talent’ I just don’t get the attraction to Anne H. to begin with, but now as Catwoman? It gives me butterflies that it will be as much as a disaster as the TALENTED Halle Berry as Catwoman.. doesn’t Hollywood ever learn? Putting someone who’s popular today doesn’t mean they should just stick them in a film that has had great success already without talent of the moment actors. It would be a sad way to end the ‘series’
