Hathaway Lets the Cat Out of the Bag

Even though every official press release and studio statement has only referred to Selina Kyle, Batman-News.com is running a video of Oprah interviewing Anne Hathaway, who refers to her role as, “Catwoman.”

Hathaway as Catwoman doesn’t work for me. She’s too “nice” and “sweet” looking. It’s like trying to cast Katie Holmes as a bad girl. But, casting is sometimes a surprising treat, as Michael Keaton once showed us playing in a certain other Batman film.

It’s fun to hear it accidentally confirmed that we’ll see not just Kyle, but Catwoman too.

  1. She will be great as catwoman. Keaton was terrible as Batman. Who wants a Bruce Wayne that is five foot nothing and acts like Ross from friends?

  2. She IS too nice and sweet , but i thought the same thing with Matt Damon when he was cast as Jason Bourne a decade ago. Maybe she will surprise us and convincingly play a badass theiving bitch.

  3. Buy the title of the post I honestly thought I was gonna see an Upskirt shot of some kind.

    “Cat out of the bag” (Cat meaning P#$sy)
    I think she’ll be fine. Love the eyes on her

  4. Maybe she’ll get naked to “serve the integrity of the film.”

    But in all seriousness, Anne has done some darker roles over the past few years. I think she’ll pull it off.

    1. I think that’s an unfair comparison, as the sheer volume of people who know Superman’s secret identity is enormous, and relatively few folks could tell you Catwoman is Selina Kyle. Regardless, I will happily concede to you that you are right, just because Hathaway said it doesn’t mean we’ll see her in a cat suit. Congratulations, you’ve stomped on all of our fantasies.
