[UPDATED WITH SPY PICS] First Look: Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises.”


UPDATED: Thanks to some spy pics from Just Jared, we now have an idea what the full costume looks like.  Check out the pics below of Anne Hathaway’s stunt double, filming a sequence today in Pittsburgh.

After yesterday’s reveal of Henry Cavill in full costume for Man of Steel, Warner Bros. has followed up by giving us our first official look at another major character from The Dark Knight Rises: here’s Anne Hathaway in costume as Selina Kyle (click for full-size version).

The photo was discovered at the official Dark Knight Rises website, and it’s worth mentioning that the filename was “selina_kyle.jpg.”  In fact, the character has not yet been referred to as “Catwoman” by anyone involved with the production – does that mean we should expect a different interpretation of the character?  It’s likely that we won’t know until The Dark Knight Rises hit theatres on July 20, 2012.

      Ditto. I dig the fact that it looks more sleek and tactical – exactly the kind of thing you would expect a cat burglar to wear.

    she seems to sweet to play a pure sex badass like catwoman. theres always been that wierd sexual tension with her and batman too, i wonder where they take it with this movie….

      She definitely has a sugary-sweet public image, but she’s not afraid to play up her sexuality (Love and Other Drugs) or explore darker material (Rachel Getting Married). I’m anxious to see what she brings to the table here.

    Interesting. Did she jack the Batpod?! It definitely fits within Nolan’s grounded universe. I wouldn’t be surprised if the name “Catwoman” is never uttered in the movie, but is implied.

      I’m with you on this Kyle. I doubt there will be a single catwoman reference mentioned. There isn’t a lot of humor in the Nolan world so I don’t see any cat comments making their way into the movie. Maybe some cocky comment like “I always land on my feet” at some point in the movie. I’ve been trying to wrap my head around her role in the movie. Is she a villain, is she a hero, or is she both? I’ve been doing my best to stay away from any spoilers, but i can’t figure it out! I have my guesses though, and from these recent pictures of her, my guesses seem mildly accurate.

    This is so disgustingly hot I don’t even know what to do with myself. I can’t wait for this movie.
