SCOOP: Version of Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises

SCOOP:  Version of Catwoman in <em>The Dark Knight Rises</em>

A concept artist working on the movie has dropped a golden kernel of information to me regarding which version of Selina Kyle Anne Hathaway will play in The Dark Knight Rises.


First let me start with the fact that I got this news from a concept artist who are often brought in to work on movies before there is even a finalized script. With that said, I personally have a creative background and have a lot of college friends working in California who are concept artists. One of my former mates [who I obviously won't reveal] stated that she worked on early concepts for the movie which were modeled after the prostitute version in Batman: Year One. As many of you know, the Catwoman in Frank Miller's tale, created the prostitute backstory for Selina. And from what we've seen in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Returns, a lot of the material was lifted from Miller's take.




Well, again, this isn't 100% confirmation that this is the version we will see as many of you who have seen the concept art for X-Men:First Class, Thor, and Green Lantern know that most of those interpretations [but some were] were not what we saw in the movie. However, it does reveal that this version of Selina was seriously discussed atleast during the early stages of the movie and is probably the one we will see in the movie.

What version of Selina Kyle would you like to see on the big screen prostitute, socialite, or stewardess? Sound off below on how you think this fits into the Nolan universe and if this is the take on the character you wanted to see on the big screen.




Catwoman is a fictional character associated with DC Comics' Batman franchise. Historically a supervillain, the character was created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane, partially inspired by Kane's cousin, Ruth Steel. Kane, a frequent movie goer, also mentioned that Jean Harlow was a model for the design. Since the 1990s, Catwoman has been featured in an eponymous series that cast her as an antihero rather than a supervillain. The character has been one of Batman's most enduring love interests. Many modern writers have also interpreted her activities and costumed identity as a response to a history of abuse. Batman #62 (December/January 1950) revealed that Catwoman is an amnesiac flight attendant who had turned to crime after suffering a prior blow to the head during a plane crash she survived. Catwoman's origin—and, to an extent, her character—was revised in 1986 when writer Frank Miller and artist David Mazzucchelli published Batman: Year One, a revision of Batman's origin. She works as a prostitute in order to survive and wants to break away from her abusive pimp (and former boyfriend).
