^exactly. seemed so pointless.. if you're not going to give us a cowl, at least give us a good reason as to why

because people have no life. or two, they aren't flexible enough to enjoy a modern upgrade of a character's costume.

Second and third photos look cool.

At first I was sceptical about her costume, but seeing it in action proved me wrong.
TheRaven20 - 7/26/2012, 11:30 AM
Still would have preferred the cowl. If Batman can have one, why can't Catwoman. BUt I understand that would have involved more explaining, which they probably didn't want to do.

She never even used them. They did not factor into the plot at all. We didn't even get to see a POV shot. As much as I was looking forward to this movie, and although I am withholding final judgment until I see it again, I have some real problems with it. At least, we'll always have Batman Begins and The Dark Knight...

Costume design and Hathaway as Selina, two thumbs up. She could not have been better.
GodzillaKart - 7/26/2012, 12:04 PM
Those were very cool. One thing Nolan got perfectly was all the gadgets and tech.
Bane - 7/26/2012, 12:14 PM
That's right. I need to see it again. Also, why not Roland Daggett? How many Johns did we need in this movie?
Nomis1800 - 7/26/2012, 12:44 PM
Absolutely loved her goggles/ears. But yes, it would've been a nice touch if we saw it thru her eyes in some sort of stealing scene or chase.

love me some Hathaway..

Lol @ "How many Johns did we see in this movie"...
I have a preoblem with one John... John Blake! Who the hell is he that he should get to carry on the mantle. There's at least four other characters in the mythos that should have been chosen - Dick Grayson; Jason Todd; Tim Drake; Jean Paul Valley... one of them should have been the detective

I hated cat women in the movie.. Had no [frick]en point..
That's right I said it.. But everything else was good..

Catwoman was shit.
Marveluffugus - 7/26/2012, 4:25 PM
I might get crucified or death threats for this but in my "opinion" I believe Bane was the shiz. I want to have his bat breaking babies. Always wanted to see the bat being broken on screen, I now have permission to die.
MrReese - 7/26/2012, 4:51 PM
@megabatfan Mr.John Blake was a combination of all Robins.As 2 why not choose 1 name the GA would not know who the [frick] Grayson is or Drake.Robin on the other hand is known by the GA so of course his name will be Robin.

Best Catwoman Ever!!!

Well, great film- needed more clear lingering shots of catwomans ass in the suit do....
vtopa - 7/26/2012, 8:04 PM
I thought this was a great take on Cat Woman. Not the be all, end all, but totally in line with this more "realistic" view on the Batman universe...and also, Ann Hathaway's ass was hot.

I really liked this movie and Hathaway's Selina Kyle, but I really didn't like that suit. The actual bodysuit is fine, but I really didn't like the high heels and the fact she had no cowl. In my opinion Catwoman should always wear a cowl. The domino mask look has always been one of my least favourite Catwoman looks, and I didn't like it in TDKR either. I don't understand why some people are saying the cowl is unrealistic. On the contrary, it's more practical. It hides her identity and keeps her long hair out of the way. There's never been anything unrealistic about the cowl, it makes perfect real-life sense. Wheter it should or should not have cat-ears is another question, but the cowl itself is perfectly realistic.

Oh my friend MrReese...If it's one Robin the GA would most likely know, it is Dick Grayson as Robin, thanks to the 1960s series
