Anne Hathaway Confirms She’s Catwoman in 'Dark Knight Rises'
Though most of the geek world would literally murder Christopher Nolan if he included the character of Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises without showing her transformation into Catwoman, we all still needed some sort of confirmation that Anne Hathaway was indeed going to be Catwoman in the film in order to calm our worst fears. After all, up until this point Nolan and Co. have been real tricksters in terms of referring to the character as Selina Kyle and not Catwoman. Thankfully, that confirmation finally came in the form of Hathaway appearing on the Oprah show. While she didn’t come right out and say she’s playing Catwoman, she basically confirmed it by telling Oprah that she was waiting to get the “Catwoman call” when her people instead told her she’d been offered a chance to host the Oscars.
Watch the video below and let us know if this is a true Catwoman confirmation or not.
And speaking of Catwoman, check out Anne Hathaway and James Franco in this musical nod to the film Grease that didn’t make the Oscars cut. It was supposed to be part of the show’s opening number, but was left on the cutting room floor. We say if Hathaway looks this good in black spandex, seeing her as Catwoman should be a real treat … for, ya know, black spandex enthusiasts and such.
Word has it a new full-length, two-minute-plus trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger is due to hit this week, but while we wait here’s news that should make most of you anticipate this summer’s Marvel blockbuster just a wee bit more. Alan Silvestri, the man behind such famous movie scores as Back to the Future, Forrest Gump and Predator, will be scoring Captain America: The First Avenger.
Superhero movie scores may not seem important, but take a look at how much the scores added to those original Superman movies and to The Dark Knight. A tight, intricate score can do wonders for a superhero-themed film in terms of giving it lasting power and a sense of nostalgia. Till this day I bet you can still hum the theme to Back to the Future…am I right?
