So it has been decided. After months of speculation, including a pool of actresses ranging from Naomi Watts and Keira Knightley to Blake Lively and Jessica Biel, Warner Bros. has announced who will join Tom Hardy's Bane in Christopher Nolan's third and final installment of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. And the winner is… Anne Hathaway!
Anne Hathaway, Batman 3
Hey, I just written my post and I didn't go through...'it take sometime & deep Heart-thought writting that one. How upsetting but here goes another try but a short one. Congrates to Actress Ms. Anne Hathaway for gettin' to play a much beloved Classic DC character from the BATMAN Series Catwoman. I think Hathaway is a wise choice for the fame-feline Catwoman role in the new BATMAN Movie The Dark Knight Rises and will respectfully pay much homage to the legendary Iconic CATWOMEN Eartha Kitt-her purrrr is perfection, Julie Newmar (she's a trip!) & Lee Merriweather in whom I treasure wholeheartenly..'love them forever!!! Actress Ms. Berry & Ms. Pfeiffer did a splendid job of the Catwoman and look forward to Hathaways unique twist to the Role.
Yeah, Anne Hathaway as Selena Kyle (aka: Catwoman)! I think she'll do just fine! Plus, she's gorgeous! Her face, hair, and body (particularly the gown she wore @ the Golden Globe Awards) is stunning!
Hopefully she'll do a good job. I'm not a big fan of her anymore. I liked her in Princess Diaries, as a nice girl next door. Sometimes you lose fans as you change your image. Now she's a sex kitten after baring her breasts in Brokeback Mountain. It'll be hard to see her as the bad girl, a stretch because of her naturally sweet face. I think they could've cast someone more suited for the role.
who knows what evil lurks in the heart of Anne Hathaway? We gonna find out! Julie Newmar from the TV series was my first. I thought Val Kilmer was one dimensional until his role as Doc in "Tombstone" I was floored by his performance. My point, wait and see!
really im more excited about bane than catwoman. i really cant wait to see how nolan brings both of them to life. and ever since heath ledger i wont question who nolan picks for his roles till i see there performance because the mans a genius at casting!
Personally, I don't think Anne Hathaway has the facial expressions of a multifaceted character. Catwoman and Harley Quinn were my favorite Batman villians so I really hope she does Catwoman some justice. I just can't seem to picture it in my own head, but I trust Nolan and am at least holding out until the first picture or trailer before I decide how I feel about her in the role
her Role in get smart should tell you that she can do action well and she has the acting chops she will be great with Bail and Freeman and Oldman this i think wes a really Good Pick!
The best cat woman I have seen is Michelle Pfeiffer. I like Anne Hathaway so I will check it. It may surprise you as Heath Ledger did in Batman as he was awesome.
I was excited to hear that Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway were casted for the new Batman film. I am a little upset with the Bane storyline though. Bane, in the comicbook finds out who Batman is and hides in the batcave waiting for him to return. They fight, of course. Bane breaks Batman's back leaving him a paraplegic. I hope this is not Chris Nolan's idea of great Batman movie and plays that angle out. That would suck!
Did someone say Halle Berry ....???? wtf? That movie was so dumb. Sorry. She can stick to being Storm, but her portrayal of Catwoman was HORRIBLE. Not to mention almost every time you saw her it was a computer animated or brushed up version. Can't wait for the new Batman! woot!
Heath Ledger, best Joker in the franchise. Liam Neeson, Cillian Murphy, Ken Watanabe, and of course Christian Bale. All great leading men. Leading ladies? Thank god that Maggie Gyllenhaal was at least a marginal improvement over the trash performance given by Katie Holmes. I like Anne Hathaway but Chris Nolans vision of what a leading lady will do on screen has not been what I would call exciting, Good luck to her though, it will be challenging! Catwoman has been done by a lot of different people and the only thing anybody ever remembers afterward is the suit. Michelle Pfeiffer...pshaw. I would like to see a meaningful charachter.
I can see Anne Hathaway in this role. Selena Kyle, like Bruce Wayne acts very differently when not in costume. When she goes out on a burglary she revels in the freedom & excitement of both accomplishing her goal & the thrill of the chase. Batman makes the chase all the more desireable as he increases her adrenalin, dodging the cops is no real challenge for her. I easily see Anne H. pulling off both characters. Catwoman was never about being sexy, she's a thrill junkie who steals so she doesn't need a day job. The cat suit is more of a distraction toola tool of misdirection ( a tactic magicians use Mr. Nolan knows this he directed The Prestige) so good choice Mr. Nolan keep up the good work you are the best thing to happen to this franchise.
I'm not a Hathaway fan as I don't watch movies whose target audience seems to be adolescent girls. Catwoman is a role that can either be very shallow or very complex. Maybe she can pull it off - it will be good for her career if she can. If she crashes and burns on the other hand, it could do the opposite. Risky move for her, and risky move for the director.
1st thought was the Biel would be the choice because she fits the sexy look for catwoman, however it only took a few moments to realize that Hathaway is the far supereior Actress!
I hope that Anne is able to channel all the rage she has left from being duped by her jailed ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri into the role. Could be interesting...
WHERE'S RIDDLER I WANT RIDDLER!!! THANK GOODNESS CHRISTIAN BALE AND CHRISTOPHER NOLAN ARE RETURNING OR ELSE I WOULDN'T BE INTERESTED!!!
Im not sure about having Bane on there, but am about Anne. Im a lot surer in fact than Heath Ledger, and that turned out mind- blowingly good as it was.
Heath Ledger seemed like a really odd choice for the Joker and look how that turned out? However the one time Anne Hathaway played a bad girl (in the film Havoc) it wasn't her best turn on the screen. Though at the time she was trying to really break out of that "I'm a princess" persona she had become known for. Really like her as an actress though so I hope she can pull this off.
I'm looking forward to seeing Anne play Selina Kyle. She's a talented actress and I can remember when Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker everybody was freaking out and in the end he truly did the Joker justice.
Wow, just Throwing SPOILERS out there willy nilly ey? Ruin the rest of the movie too why don't you.
i think they should of picke jessica biel or mila kunis they would of made perfect cat womens
I think Halle Berry would have made a great catwoman this upcoming movie. She is very talented and she played a good catwoman in one of her movies. Anne Hathaway always played a good girl in her roles and she's a good actress but she doesn't fit the role for to be catwoman. I think they should have considered Halle for the part she would have pulled it off fine.
Halle Berry Already was Catwoman!! she was ok but the movie Suxed, nobody wants 2 c that again.
