First Look: Anne Hathaway FINALLY Looks Like Catwoman On The Set Of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’


Early last month we got our first look at actress Anne Hathaway in costume as Catwoman as she will appear in the upcoming sequel film Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. As you may recall, Anne recieved a lot of negative feedback based primarily on the fact that she did NOT look very much like Catwoman at all. This weekend, Anne and co-star Christian Bale filmed new scenes for The Dark Knight Rises and as you can see in the photos below, her Catwoman costume has been changed at bit … and she NOW looks like Catwoman. At last, the costume has cat ears! Hurrah!! Check out the photos below and see what you think.

Now THIS is a Catwoman I can get on board with. I am loving the way her costume looks here. The suit is sick, the silver heels on her boots are fierce and the mask and cat ears combo REALLY works for me. Whew! I’m telling you … these photos make me heave a HUGE sigh of relief. I had a feeling that the first incarnation of the Catwoman suit that we saw (and many did not like) would not be the sole version of Catwoman that we would see in TDKR. Again, I say, I am LOVING this Catwoman look. I can’t wait to see more. What do y’all think? Impressed? Still worried? Nonplussed?

    the only thing i dont like about the the belt. the bulkness of it take away from the sleekness of the catsuit. but other then that, i love the suit..those boots are killer.

    • @nicole — Utility belt, ugh. Still … she does need a belt. I always loved how the belt hung on the hips of Catwomen Eartha Kitt, Julie Newmar and Lee Merriweather in the 60s.

  • Aaron

    LOVE it! Now, this is what a Catwoman should look like….
    That catsuit is the right amount of tight!

  • Mr. Spears

    I agree with Nicole, the suit would look so much more polished without the belt. I also think the mask and ears are a little cheesy looking, I think they could have done a better job.

  • Kevin

    This is a HUGE improvement. However, I’m still a *little* disappointed. The suit itself is great, but I’m not a fan of the mask/ears. I don’t like that much hair showing. I really liked Michelle Pfiefer’s mask in Batman Returns. These ears/mask just make Anne look like she’s playing dress-up or on her way to a Halloween party. She doesn’t look intimidating at all. But again…still a big improvement. We shall see once the movie comes out.

      I think you pretty much nailed it Kevin :) Totally agree.

  • Joanna

    PEOPLE, if she didn’t have a utility belt, she wouldn’t be able to kick so much ass. I think it makes the suit more kick ass. Kind of like the knife belt Halle Berry wore in James Bond. I mean where do you want her weapons to be…shooting out of her boobs like in Austin Powers?! Get real!

    Saw this earlier today… I like it, but I think I would have preferred the goggles that Catwoman’s been running around in lately. But the rest of the costume? Fantastic. I hope she puts those heels to good use.

  • SG

    Just a heads up for a few of you who prefer the goggles (or the ears for that matter): from what I understand, the ears are actually the goggles when pushed up. They look like ears when they are. Sorta cool, functional instead of just decorative.

    So technically, I guess nothing changed from the previous pics.

  • robin

    yeah i agree with some previous posters…the mask and ears look like a cheesy halloween costume.

  • Katie

    I saw a theory on another website that was pretty interesting about the cat mask & ears. They were thinking that it may end up being made out of another one of Batman’s masks because the edges are frayed & ripped. It looks like it is roughly the same shape in certain areas. May not be true but I like the idea…

    • @Katie — Oh, that does sound like a cool idea. I loved the “homemadeness” of Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman costume from Batman Returns … I hope Anne’s Catwoman has a similar feel.

  • scsu01

    Eh..its okay but still not a fan. Im not buying the effectiveness of the heels even though they look cool. Dont like the belt. Im just not buying her yet. Gotta see the movie at this point.

  • Maybe the suit is more fitting of Catwoman, but Anne Hathaway’s dorky self still overpowers the suit.


    I for one am missing Miss Newmar’s Nordic blond
    flip. Nothing quite as feline as a tawdry blond – think of
    what Hitchcock brought out in Eva Marie Saint and Tippy
    Hedron. Much more catlike than…bitch-like, right?
    All blondes…

    Well I’m sorry guys but i think this dress is a piece of shit…it isn’t sexy it isn’t a real catwoman dress. I think the best catwoman dress was Michelle’s and Halle’s dress or look and please Check out the catwoman scenes from the game Batman Arkham Asylum.As I said…this “catwoman” is a piece of shit…Anne Hathaway is a very good actress but i think this role will be too much for her.I hope I’m wrong.

  • Selina

    Sorry I wanted to write batman Arkham City.My bad :)
