The Dark Knight Rises: Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman costume details

Get set for a more practical Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, as the first details of Anne Hathaway’s costume emerge…

If you were following the protocol of an Internet forum, we believe the appropriate response to this story would be “this post is useless without pics”. And it is a little strange, granted, to be talking about a costume in a film, without any images of it.

Yet, we’ve been intrigued as to how Christopher Nolan would approach the character of Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, and Hollywood Life is, perhaps, giving us our first idea.

It certainly sounds that there’s a practicality to the Catwoman costume that wasn’t around when Michelle Pfeiffer’s Batman Returns outfit was being put together. Hollywood Life quotes an insider, who says “Anne’s outfit is more tactical, like the comic book, than the previous Batman movies.”

Furthermore, “She will definitely be wearing the goggles, and it’s going to be less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman costumers. She’s going to look more like a robber.” The source did feel inclined to add that Hathaway will still look “smoking hot”.

The more practical approach certainly ties into how Christopher Nolan has approached his Batman movies today, and we’d imagine that we might get a glimpse of Hathaway in her Catwoman garb before the year is out.
