Details on Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman costume in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Earlier today we learned about Anne Hathaway’s training regimen for her upcoming role of Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, and now Hollywood Life claims to have exclusive details about what the costume will look like.

“Anne’s outfit is more tactical, like the comic book, than the previous Batman movies,” a source very close to the costume design tells us exclusively. “She will definitely be wearing the goggles and it’s going to be less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman costumes. She’s going to look more like a robber.”

Adds the insider, “But fan boys shouldn’t be worried. This costume is going to be form-fitting enough to make Anne look smoking hot.”

Hollywood Life shares the same parent company as the very reliable Deadline, so there may be some truth to this rumor. Hopefully Warner Bros. will release an official picture of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman soon, so we can all see for ourselves!

    OMG, a more tactical Cat-suit??!!…wowww…i really can’t wait to see this movie.I bet the cat-goggles has multipurpose like infrared,nightvision and stuff…

    • Avi_knight

      Just like the picture though…it’s not related to the article neither for the movie

  • Goggles? Night Vision for sure… don’t like very much the modern Catwoman with goggles, but I admit is very realistic for a sofisticated robber. Bring it on!!!

      So if you had to guess , before we find out will Catwoman be a strung out , hooker type , or a high class socialite type or is there another option ?

      • That was a tricky one… I’m expecting everything, i mean, the Nolan guy is a surprise box. But, let’s see… I’ll enjoy if she was a hooker like Year One, but I think it’s almost impossible, ’cause a regular prostitute [poor, unless she’s a scort girl :D] wouldn’t last one month in the middle of ganglands and mob empires like we saw in previous movies. Well, i think she’s more sofisticated. Could be a mob boss daughter, regular and rich by day, but crime fighter at night. Nice dualism, hum?

    I ain’t worried one bit about how she’ll look in the costume, I’m sure she will look absoutely stunning and true to Nolan form. I’m just hoping any day now relatively soon that we get an official glimpse at what she will look like much like the preview we got of Tom Hardy’s Bane.

      not even durring a trailer.  Just like in the middle of the battle of hogwarts, someone shouts AND NOW FOR SOEMTHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT! And then show us Catwoman.  The movie would make billions.

    I’m not going comment fully until I see an official picture of her in the suit, but I’m not impressed.

    This sounds promising. Nolan’s Batman films are all about being as realistic as possible. I could never take Michelle Pfeiffer or Halle Berry’s Catwomen seriously in the real world. I’m sure people will complain about Hathaway’s version being less sexy, but that’s not why her character is in the movie, nor should it be. This reminds me of how people complained about Heath Ledger’s Joker wearing makeup instead of having permawhite skin. But once we saw the performance, no one cared.

    • Bazman05

      The only way Nolan is going to make Catwoman work and take away as much of the “camp” elements (which Catwoman is all about), is to eliminate as much of the sex-appeal as possible.

        I disagree. If being a cat-burglar necessitates wearing a skin-tight outfit, then whatever sex appeal the character has left isn’t by design, but rather a consequence of her outfit. Think about Michelle Yeoh’s character in Tomorrow Never Dies. The outfit she’s wearing when she breaks into the villain’s headquarters is meant for function. That it came off as sexy was just a nice bonus for the audience. I suspect Nolan will treat Catwoman the same way. Her outfit, much like Batman’s, will be about function first and aesthetics later.

  • Antrozous

    I´m here wondering if she will have a realistic explanation for her cat ears…

    • Bazman05

      Agreed. Without a good explanation, the character is going to come off as ridiculous (which I would think anyway) and will spoil the movie. I hope we don’t get an explanation such as “I like cats, so I made these ears to look like one” or “cats frighten me, and I want my enemies to share my dread”.  

  • Mr Chance

    I’m sure the costume department came up with something cool looking. However, any kind of high heels will be incredibly silly if the costume is supposed to be “tactical” or “practical”, so those of you that see Catwoman as a potentially “sexy”, “fetish fuel” or “fanservice” type of character will be sorely disappointed.
