Christopher Nolan: Anne Hathaway ‘Deserves’ a Catwoman Spinoff Movie

anne-hathaway-catwomanAt first I wasn’t completely sold on Anne Hathaway being cast as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, but she certainly looks great in the catsuit and I’m looking forward to seeing what she brings to Christopher Nolan‘s vision of Gotham City.  In fact, Nolan admits that he was so impressed by Hathaway’s performance that he feels she ought to have her own Catwoman spinoff.

During The Dark Knight Rises press junket, Nolan said, “Anne is incredibly precise and articulate about the psychology of the character. She’s really built it from the ground up, it’s just a delight to watch her perform.  The things she does in those heels is not to be taken lightly.  She’s an incredible character and we’re very excited to see her and hopefully we’ll leave people wanting more.”

Wanting more?  Though Nolan has sworn off directing another Batman movie — something he reiterated several times during the press junket — he does think that Hathaway deserves another go in the catsuit.  He explained, “I certainly think she deserves it, she’s incredible.”

Well, at the very least an Anne Hathaway Catwoman film would certainly go a long way to erasing the memories of the putrid Halle Berry 2004 version, and audiences are obviously clamoring for more Nolan-style Batman films.  It also doesn’t rule out Hathaway appearing as Catwoman in a future Batman film directed by someone other than Nolan.

    I thought she was pretty great in the movie, but yeah, no need for a spinoff
