Anne Hathaway Confirms That She Is Catwoman & Not Simply Selina Kyle In TDKR

Not a huge surprise(for some anyway!), but In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Hathaway refers to herself as Catwoman for the first time. Check it out..

I realize this will come as no surprise to many, but you wouldn't believe the amount of people that were convinced that Chris Nolan had cast Hathaway as Selina Kyle only(as outlined in the official press release) and not her leather wearing alter ego. In this interview Hathway refers to herself(and indeed I believe this is the first time anyone associated with the movie has used the name) as Catwoman..



So there you go. Hathway will not simply be portraying Selina Kyle. Expect her to be suiting up and getting Batman's head all frazzled.

swag. As much as i love Pfeiffer's creepy psycho Catwoman i want to see a sort of master thief/assassin angle take on her
PartyHard - 2/28/2011, 4:01 PM
Chris Nolan is definitely gay. He has no idea how to cast an attractive woman in his movies.
Talontd - 2/28/2011, 4:04 PM
Pleeeeeaaaaasssseeee make her a Hooker! lol...
Ironbat95 - 2/28/2011, 4:15 PM
I never doubted they wouldnt use Catwoman when Selina Kyle was announced. Us fans take these press releases too literaly.
AlexdoxA - 2/28/2011, 4:16 PM
@Videocolor... do you say that just based on both feminine actors cast as Rachel in his batman movies? Nah, they almost look like ugly women!!
Dynamo - 2/28/2011, 4:21 PM
@PartyHard
Married and has 3 kids... definatly gay.
TheGODDAMNEDDaddySmalls - 2/28/2011, 4:22 PM
@partyhard, ok then what is YOUR defintion of attractive ?

I approve of Anne Hathaway *we share the same first name so that gives me another reason to like her*

Glad all this "Its not Catwoman its just Selina" bull crap can be put behind us.
Creature - 2/28/2011, 4:29 PM
I guess Anne would have said Catwoman if she didn't read the script yet. Her character could be a love interest, or even a prostitute. The press release only said Selnia Kyle...
@partyhard: I agree that Anne Hathaway is miscast in a sexual likeness. She is not beautiful IMO. but I think Marion Cotillard was pretty hot in Inception. So was Carrie-Anne Moss in Memento.
Creature - 2/28/2011, 4:31 PM
You're onto something TEA!
SHHH - 2/28/2011, 4:32 PM
Approvals

@TeaBAg:) Good One... There Twin's.....
RorMachine - 2/28/2011, 4:33 PM
Creature, c'mon dude, how many interview have we seen with Nolan and Hathaway in which they went out of their way to correct the interviewer when they said the word Catwoman?

"Uh, Selina Kyle yes..." etc.

It's all just an attempt to keep the fans guessing as long as possible. Anyone who thinks Nolan would use Kyle and not Catwoman is crazy!
PartyHard - 2/28/2011, 4:33 PM
@TheGODDAMNEDDaddySmalls Not Anne Hathaway, thats for goddamn sure. I am fairly shallow though.

@Dynamo Implying married people with children can't be gay. And even if he isn't gay, he still has terrible taste in women.
patriautism - 2/28/2011, 4:34 PM
She is a great actress IMO.. I am not ashamed to say that I LOVE The Princess Diaries!!!!
lol...
Anyway, she'll be awesome as Catwoman.

Tea that is just.... just wrong... and kinda creepy too
Jagfan28 - 2/28/2011, 4:34 PM
Anne Hathaway is beautiful. End of story.
marvel72 - 2/28/2011, 4:36 PM
she'd look pretty hot in the catwoman outfit.
luckylu - 2/28/2011, 4:37 PM
great actress but i hate catwoman. i hope nolan will change that
FrankGarret - 2/28/2011, 4:41 PM
Never doubted it.

I would hit that like the fist of an angry god.

TheBaldPat - 2/28/2011, 4:44 PM
she reminds me a lil bit of Julie Newmar
MovieMann - 2/28/2011, 4:45 PM
Christopher Nolan really knows how to find talent.
She is one of the smartest and most dedicated actors out there.
The amount of research she does on each of her characters is unbelievable.
The best thing about Nolan's CBM's is that he actually casts good passionate actors that give it their all, instead of treating it like a fun mindless Superhero movie.

I think she'll do great as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.

TDKR is going to be my most anticipated film of 2012. Superman is pretty much tied with it though. The Amazing Spider-Man looks great as well. Should be a great time!
GUNGRAVE1 - 2/28/2011, 4:46 PM
I like it they picked the right women for catwomen.
Creature - 2/28/2011, 4:47 PM
@Ror machine: Well, I guess that's true; two villains are so mandatory now.
LP4 - 2/28/2011, 4:48 PM
AWESOME! Let's see if she can top Michelle Pfeifer's Catwoman! That'll be tough. But I always liked Hathaway. Was a biiiig supporter of her as Lois Lane for the Superman reboot. But if she must be Catwoman I have the utmost faith in her ability to do so!
theguywhomayknow - 2/28/2011, 4:50 PM
Hathaway is an underwhelming casting choice, much like Aaron Eckhart was in the previous film. Who knows, she may do something different with it.
GoddamnBatman - 2/28/2011, 4:50 PM
Is Nolan going to use elements from Year One again such as Selina being a whore?
Dmon - 2/28/2011, 5:03 PM
Oh come on she is way better looking then Katie and Maggie. On a scale of 1-10 Katie and Maggie are like a 2 and Ann is an 8. And some of you who say Hathaway is unattractive I have seen you say Natalie Portman is hot, no taste. Natalie Portman is maybe a 3 and has the body of a 12 year old boy. She does not come close to Hathaway.
grifdeadpoolteabag - 2/28/2011, 5:04 PM
Wow, an actual nod to the source material, surprise and not a retcon and castration.

Still, her costume's going to be hideous, say geisha to go with Batman's kabuki armor.
Batman15 - 2/28/2011, 5:05 PM
she isnt my top choice of being catwomen but i think she might do ok..... i hope
FEJ - 2/28/2011, 5:10 PM
She'll do.
FEJ - 2/28/2011, 5:11 PM
She'll do.
SKGannbit - 2/28/2011, 5:16 PM
she is so gorgeous.
TheSoulEater - 2/28/2011, 5:17 PM
I think she's going to surprise us, cause Nolan ALWAYS FRICKING DOES IT.

ann it's not georgeus, just pretty; but she is an excelent actress and for me is enough!
SageMode - 2/28/2011, 5:20 PM
@Teabag: that mathematical equation is hilarious. Lol. I do think they should've gone with someone who ALOT MORE attractive but has the actin chops also. Smh
DukeAcureds - 2/28/2011, 5:24 PM
Yes, she's Selina Kyle. Yes, she's Catwoman. But she's not Bruce wayne's love interest. Who is? Talia? Shondra Kinsolving?
MagnaSolaris - 2/28/2011, 5:30 PM
I love her
