We’ve had plenty of photos showing The Dark Knight Rises actress Anne Hathaway in costume, just not in costume. We’ve only really seen one shot of the actress in her Catwoman garb and most of us assumed it wasn’t the finished product. Well now we know it wasn’t. Here’s Hathaway with what everyone was waiting for…cat ears.
So…I don’t know what the hell is going on anymore. The previous costumed shot we saw of Hathaway had her wearing technologically advanced goggles closer to her recent look in the comics rather than the 1960s Batman television series and this look screams Lee Meriwether to me. Not that I don’t love Meriwether and the other 60s Catwoman looks but this feels too cartoony to me, especially for the Nolan-verse.
The shots were taken over the weekend in Los Angeles where the actress was filming a scene with both Christian Bale and Gary Oldman. It’s extremely hard to tell in these shots but the ears are definitely attached to the mask and look, to me at least, like they could potentially pull down to form that goggle look we saw previously. Most people assumed that would be the case.
Now that we’ve seen more shots of the Catwoman costume I think one of my biggest complaints are the boots. For a director who likes to keep things realistic, over-the-knee stilettos (with silver heels no less) are not the best way to burgle/fight crime.
My other issue with the look is Hathaway’s hair flowing free. I don’t know if I’d necessarily push for an entire head covering but it’s seems a little secret identity counter-productive not to mention the whole issue of it getting grabbed/stuck in something while working.
So ladies and gents, now that we’ve seen what is most likely the final Catwoman look for The Dark Knight Rises, what do you think? Too much? Too little? Perfect or go back to the drawing board bad?
