Best part of this movie was Anne Hathaway's Selina Kyle/Catwoman portrayal. Straight off the comic pages.

Portrayal was spot on... costume, including concept are was shit. An actual cowl and goggles would've been ssssoooooo much better.

not impressed with the concept art, but nice to see some stuff at least

I was surprised by how good she was.

Anne was a great Catwoman. I'll admit it, she proved me totally wrong. However, the costume was really lame. Yes, I understand the realistic Nolan universe, but the costume was still total shit.

Most of this is on the BluRay trilogy, but still great find. Btw the BluRay is absolutely amazing, got it for Christmas :)

Anne owned.

Still waiting for the right Catwoman.

Something like this for the cowl

mgeoff88 - 12/25/2012, 8:47 PM
So Catwoman having a cowl in TDKR was never even played around with? I would much prefer a cowl with cat ears to hi-tech goggles that resemble cat ears when they are flipped up.

Anne Hathaway stole the show in TDKR! Her portrayal of Selina Kyle/Catwoman exceeded my expectations.

I didn't care for her costume though.

@Derpina Tell that to Indiana Jones. :P

These suck, the final version sucked, the character sucked, and the movie sucked! Move along!

She looked great in the movie. Glad they did what they did.
Jolt17 - 12/25/2012, 9:43 PM
Ah, I've just seen 'em on the DVD's special features. You know, I really like the goggles - they put so much creativity into it...the whole flip-it-up-and-you-have-cat-ears-look-alike idea is the most interesting part, to me, and it surprisingly worked really well. Also, the belt and the stiletto blade look great. I love the costume as a whole, and I was one of those guys who used to whine a lot about the cowl. And it was meant to pay homage to Lee Meriwether's costume, yes? Because if so, it works pretty damn well.



Not so much for the rest of the concept art, though.

We will get the cowl and whip in the reboot. Nuff said
0bstreperous - 12/25/2012, 11:31 PM
She was awkward come on guys can we start being honest about this movie yet?
HarveyDent88 - 12/25/2012, 11:49 PM
Anne was great. Would of been nice if she had more screen time though.

Much better than pieces of a raincoat sewn together.
Danbojohnj - 12/26/2012, 1:07 AM
Easily the best part of the film.
LEEE777 - 12/26/2012, 2:47 AM
Sweet, still liked the comics black version a lot better, but that and what was on film wasn't bad!
Nomis1800 - 12/26/2012, 3:41 AM
Best Catwoman suit ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maia87 - 12/26/2012, 4:19 AM
Michelle is the one and only Catwoman!
silverdog - 12/26/2012, 5:31 AM
meh..and this is what they want an oscar for?..
Nivekian - 12/26/2012, 10:55 AM
Horrible costume design, way too complicated and over-detailed for what they were trying to pull off, much like Bane. Keep costume design simple Hollywood, you have 70 years of artists that know what visually works for their audience beating you to the punch.
Minghagz - 12/26/2012, 4:28 PM
I think I would have preferred a cowl but its all good because she gave the best catwoman portrayal!
Hawkeyefan - 12/26/2012, 7:21 PM
I think that Michelle Pfeiffer was the best catwoman on film. The custom design was awesome.

Anne Hathaway was ok,but that custom was not catwoman it was just a girl in a custom. There was no whip, no claws and no cowl.

Catwoman has to have claws, a whip and a cowl. And should use the whip to fight bad guys.

Michelle is the best catwoman. I wish that she would play catwoman again.
Jaspion - 12/26/2012, 10:38 PM
Still, nobody knows how the hell she got that high-tech outfit. Or why.

Talk about convenience.
fullmoon106 - 12/27/2012, 12:48 AM
Nolans Catwoman was...OK (nothing special though), but that suit they gave her really sucked. Those other designs don't look any better. They should finally let go of that awful 60s design. It never worked, and it's one of the most silliest Catwoman designs ever. I can't believe we still haven't got the Darwyn Cooke design yet. There are other better suits too. This suit they used looked bad, and it wasn't practical or realistic anyway. I hope the next time we get a cowl and regular boots. There hasn't been a single life-action version with regular boots, even though it's clear as hell that high heels are not practical for a cat-burglar/fighter. Also, long hair isn't very practical either. If you wan't to keep the long hair, keep it hidden! A cowl would have been a no brainer.
opusrandy - 12/27/2012, 7:17 AM
you're all losers, it's a costume, the movie is made and done. Christopher Nolan also doesn't give two flying [frick]s about what any of your butt hurt fan boys "prefer".
ComicBookGoth - 12/27/2012, 7:33 AM
where the heels that necessary the costume for just One scene?
anathem - 12/27/2012, 9:26 AM
Pretty cool if you ask me.
