Anne Hathaway certainly has faced some challenges playing the iconic Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s latest The Dark Knight Rises.
Anne Hathaway on Playing Catwoman: “I saw it less as a challenge and more as an opportunity to go to a place I had never been required to go before”
Despite Christopher Nolan’s insistence to take a more realistic approach to his Batman films (well, as realistic as a man dressing as a bat to fight crime can be), it was inevitable that Batman’s main love interest, Selina Kyle/Catwoman, would show up at some point. She finally appears in The Dark Knight Rises, portrayed by Anne Hathaway.
At 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.

Despite Anne Hathaway having a lot of exciting projects coming up (The Dark Knight Rises, Les Miserables), there is only one question she is consistently asked. What’s it like wearing the Catsuit?
