Wally Pfister Says Anne Hathaway Looks Phenomenal As Catwoman!

The cinematographer drops some serious hints that we'll be seeing more than just Selina Kyle in the third movie and lets it slip that Hathaway looks great "in the wardrobe"! He also comments on the recent Hugo Strange rumors...

Brendon Connelly from Bleeding Cool, recently had the chance to ask cinematographer Wally Pfister a few questions about The Dark Knight Rises, and he dropped some very intriguing pieces of information. Here's a couple of the most interesting excerpts from the report. Be sure to follow the link over to the site to read more, and for the links to the full audio interview!

Talking of the screentests, Kevin asked:

So, Wally you shot Anne’s screen test for Catwoman?

To which he replied in the affirmative. That’s a yes to Kevin saying "Catwoman", not "Selina Kyle". Hmmm.

Pfister added, a little later:

"She looks phenomenal in the wardrobe."

I couldn’t let that lie. Later, I came back to it and asked if this meant what it seems to mean:

"Brendon, I’d get fired and I wouldn’t even get to shoot the picture...I can’t really say, but I definitely want to be around next year..."

They also asked him about the Robin Williams as Hugo Strange rumour and the secrets that still surround The Dark Knight Rise, to which he replied:

"They could turn around and surprise me too. It’s happened before. When I turned around and saw that list of girls that we were going to be screen testing before they cast Anne… I didn’t know myself who was real and who wasn’t until about two days before the tests when Emma told me."

The Dark Knight Rises is set to be released on July 20, 2012!

Awesome dude, that has to (all but) confirm it. "The wardrobe" I hardly think he means Selina Kyle's business suit!
Vafrous - 1/31/2011, 11:34 AM
Im much more curious about Bane's costume...
StrangerX - 1/31/2011, 11:36 AM
So much for just Selina Kyle..lol

Don't care what anyone SAYS what she looks like, I want to SEE WHAT SHEE LOOKS LIKE!! GIVE ME PICTURES OR SHUT THE HELL UP!!!!

If anyone can do Catwoman justice, it will be Nolan.
LocoLobo1127 - 1/31/2011, 11:40 AM
Sounds good Id love to see her in her kitty cat outfit , i want the goggles ala Jim Lee's version of Catwoman and she needs to cut her hair short. I also think Robin Williams would be great as Strange, I like that a whole lot better then Bane
LEEE777 - 1/31/2011, 11:41 AM
Lol, shes got the tits and ass, she'll fill the suit!
RorMachine - 1/31/2011, 11:43 AM
@ Ajax, huh?
AlexdoxA - 1/31/2011, 11:43 AM
@gunslinger... I don't know man, I don't think he'd look that good wearing the black leather costume and mask...
SciFiNut - 1/31/2011, 11:45 AM
Wally is a damn genius. He's a major chunk of the reason these films are so damn good. I can't wait to see what Nolan does with Catwoman. If you're going to have to follow the Joker, she's really the only way to do it.
marvel72 - 1/31/2011, 11:46 AM
i bet she does look shit hot.
rsalas - 1/31/2011, 11:47 AM
Hmmm....he didn't say Hugo Strange isn't going to be in the movie. All he said was he wouldn't be surprised if Robin Williams was on the list of actors. So Hugo Strange is in the movie????
ecksmanfan - 1/31/2011, 11:48 AM
@LEEE- amen. T n' A all the way!
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/31/2011, 11:49 AM
Im fine with Hathaway.
I would like to see Ralph Fiennes as Hugo Strange in the movie. Bane should be a former patient of him or something. Bryan Cranston would be cool too.
StrangerX - 1/31/2011, 11:56 AM
cant wait for TDKR XXX
AldoRaine - 1/31/2011, 11:56 AM
Cool Anne has stunningly beautiful facial features, so Im confident that she will shine thru the mask
AC1 - 1/31/2011, 12:03 PM
At first I wasn't too sure about her being in TDKR, but she's grown on me, I'm convinced she'll be great, and Nolan knows what he's doing!
"Sorry for ever doubting you Chris!"
Organa1978 - 1/31/2011, 12:04 PM
She never will be better than Michelle Pfeiffer.
FrankGarret - 1/31/2011, 12:04 PM
I'm still bewildered as to how it seemed everyone was convinced she wasn't going to be Catwoman.

I mean it's not like she started out as Selina Kyle and after a few years she became Catwoman. It was an ntirely logical and reasonable assumption that she would be Catwoman and yet a lot were saying that was jumping the gun.
StrangerX - 1/31/2011, 12:12 PM
I think Nolan must have checked her out in Get Smart as an agent and figured she would be cool as a spy or thief. That's just my guess..lol
FrankGarret - 1/31/2011, 12:16 PM
People said the same about Keaton and Nicholson.

Sometimes it is as if the fans think Nolan Forrest Gumps his way from one box office/critical hit to the other.
CorndogBurglar - 1/31/2011, 12:21 PM
i don't understand what this speculation is about. who in the hell thinks they would use Selina Kyle but not Catwoman? If they were just looking for a love interest and nothing more, then they would use one of Bruce's millions of other female characters to fill the role.

They picked Selina Kyle for a reason, because she'll be Catwoman. anyone that thinks otherwise needs to seek treatment at their local psychiatric ward.

Firsters? Seriously?
Xandera - 1/31/2011, 12:48 PM
Cool Find Josh! Nolan is gonna deliver us awesomeness again!
FrankGarret - 1/31/2011, 12:59 PM
@PatrickBateman47 I wish I could respond in sophisticated, erudite manner, but...

Seriously, they're not. You and Brazlianbale are entitled to your own opinion, I hope you enjoy watching Burton's films over and over while I and everyone else have a blast with something new.

And don't get me wrong, Pfiefer's Catwoman was awesome, but it's not in any way unsurpassable. Nothing is, even Ledger's Joker.
nuck82 - 1/31/2011, 12:59 PM
nom nom nom, she will do great in my opinion, but hey what do i know? mostly nothing
sasquatch - 1/31/2011, 1:19 PM
In the words of the Penguin; Just the pussy I've been lookin' for! :D
FrankGarret - 1/31/2011, 1:29 PM
That doesn't really compare. Joker didn't have laughing gas but he was still a clownish psychopath who wreaked havoc for the hell of it. They didn't make him into a stand-up comedian who cracked jokes about Batman.

If this was about Catwoman not having a whip, that comparison would be apt. But it's not.
Jakeroo - 1/31/2011, 1:43 PM
I said her body was okay but she doesnt have "it"
She isnt ugly, but she isnt sexy either.
This confirms that she looks good in a costume.

Lots of women have nice bodies and ugly faces! LOL

This means nothing!
I would go as far as saying she is Pretty, but that being kind
DCfan89 - 1/31/2011, 1:44 PM
i would've been very disappointed if Nolan only used selina kyle and not her alter ego... but, knowing Nolan, he would find a way to make it work and to make me like it.
DukeAcureds - 1/31/2011, 1:56 PM
@FrankGarret - Well Dark Knight had Harvey Dent but no Two Face. Unless they slipped him in right at the end. I don't know; I'd fallen asleep by then.
Selina Kyle WILL be Catwoman. Wally Pfister says he can't say, but he wants to be around next year. That's man-talk for "Oh I can't wait to see Hathaway looking all kinky and shit! I won't even need a tripod!".
Also, Chris Nolan was asked, if Catwoman would be in it, to which he smiled slyly. If she's just Selina Kyle, he would have said so. He told us there would be no Mr. Freeze or Riddler. He would tell us if there was no Catwoman. He's not that cruel. Still not convinced? OK, here's the ultimate proof: Think of Anne Hathaway in a Catwoman costume. What are you doing? You're smiling slyly.
RorMachine - 1/31/2011, 2:09 PM
Sure most of us assumed that she would be Catwoman, but that's just it, you can't assume anything with Nolan. I think it's nice to have it confirmed. But yes CDB, if he had of brought in Kyle without Cat I would have thought he was a bit of a twonk!
