- CATWOMAN... PLEASE YES!!
|Anne Hathaway is superb as CatWoman in The Dark Knight Rises|
Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises brought us an epic conclusion to a fantastic trilogy. With a large cast, there was sure to be some stand out performances and Anne Hathaway’s performance as Selina Kyle is widely considered one of the film’s highlights. I definitely think that she stole every scene she was in.
Hathaway had made it known that she’s interested in a spinoff, so long as it maintains tonal continuity with the Nolan-verse iteration of the feline femme fatale. Anne said:
“I think it would be lovely to see more of her but only if it’s with the right people. She lives in [Nolan’s Gotham City] and so it would have to be established by the people who have made this Gotham City. For me, at least.”

The Oscar-nominated actress expounded on her stance towards a Catwoman spinoff, while discussing her approach to tackling the iconic Batman antiheroine role:
“I didn’t want to focus on the other peoples’ interpretation of [Catwoman] because I didn’t see where that would get me; it would only be a rehashing of something already done – and done very well. I thought it was probably best to focus on being a part of Chris Nolan’s Gotham City.”
Nolan has made it known that he has no plans to serve as a central creative guide in the developing DC comic book movie universe. However, that doesn’t exclude the possibility of a Catwoman movie where Nolan serves in a secondary position and helps get the project off the ground (as he did with Man of Steel).
The filmmaker offered Access Hollywood his thoughts on a Catwoman spinoff:
“Anne is incredibly precise and articulate about the psychology of the character. She’s really built it from the ground up, it’s a delight to watch her perform, the things she does in those heels is not to be taken lightly… I certainly think she deserves [her own solo movie], she’s incredible.”
So certainly there does seem to be quite the interest in Hathaway reprising her role as Selina, and seeing as her back-story wasn’t fully delved into, there is certainly something for the studio to work with.
However, I wouldn’t get my hopes to soon, Warner Bros. and DC are currently in the process of developing a new Justice League film, which means a new Batman. As Hathaway will essentially be playing the Nolan-Verse version of the character, if a film of Catwoman had to be made it would fall into that reality, and not be inline with the new Batman in the Justice League and potentially Bats own Spin-off film.
Will DC really be comfortable with carrying on with a character that potentially not make it into their new take on things as she would still represent The Dark Knight Trilogy??
I don’t think so, I think that a CatWoman film with Hathaway is just wishful thinking, and that DC is too concerned about playing catch-up to Marvel’s Avengers by assembling there own Justice League to really take advantage of Annes wonderful portrayal of this character!
