Yesterday we got our FIRST LOOK at Anne Hathaway in full Catwoman costume on the SoCal set of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises and today we get to see a few more photos from the set. As you may recall, the first incarnation of the new Catwoman costume left MUCH to be desired … but these new photos show that the costume has been upgraded significantly to make Anne actually look like a cat woman. There is an interesting theory going around that suggests that Catwoman’s ears/mask combo might be made from Batman’s own mask/cowl. Check out the photos below and see what you think.
She’s been working hard to get her figure in the best shape ever ahead of playing Catwoman in the new Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises. And yesterday Anne Hathaway showed off the results of all her work as she displayed her incredibly toned physique in her sexy Catwoman catsuit, which she labelled ‘unforgiving’ in a recent interview. The 29-year-old actress looked svelte in the tight black outfit – the first time we have seen the new Catwoman outfit in its entirety. Talking about getting in shape for the role, which was made famous by Michelle Pfeiffer almost two decades ago, Anne said earlier this year: ‘I’m a vegetarian and right now, I’m living on kale and dust for the training. That catsuit’s unforgiving.’ And, referring to her workout regime, she said: ‘There’s a workout hump where you’re so weak that you hate everything, everything is so painful and you look like an idiot. ‘The gym where I work out, I was literally working out next to a pregnant Jessica Alba and she could do more push-ups than I could. I’ve now just started to do Bikram yoga’ … In the new film, Miss Hathaway stars alongside Christian Bale, who plays the Bruce Wayne superhero for the third time – with British actor Gary Oldman reprising his role as police chief Lt James Gordon. On Saturday, in Los Angeles, the trio were seen having their make-up retouched before they started filming.
As I said yesterday, these photos are a HUGE improvement over the first photo we got of the Catwoman costume last month. Ears — Catwoman’s gotta have ears. Now, as for those ears and from whence they came … THIS site makes the (pretty convincing) argument that in TDKR, Catwoman gets her costume from pieces of Batman’s mask/cowl. After all, we already know that she will be riding around on the Batpod motorcycle:
Here is photographic evidence that this recycled costume theory may be right:
It makes sense. Michelle Pfeiffer wore a “homemade” costume in Batman Returns back in 1992 and Halle Berry wore one in Catwoman back in 2004. The Catwomen in recent Batman lore all wear costumes that have that homemade feel. If Anne’s Catwoman is driving around on Batman’s motorcycle, then it stands to reason that she would also have access to his attire as well. So … I gotta know … what do we think about all of this? Does the suit rule? Do you think it’s made from discarded Batman stuff?
