She’s svelte, deadly and irresistible. Introducing the new Batman: The Dark Knight Rises Exclusive Catwoman from Medicom, a fitting homage to the dynamic role played by actress Anne Hathaway on the silver screen. Take it all the way back to 2012 with this fearlessly posed figure, salaciously and powerfully positioned with one hand on her hip and right leg forward to assume an assertive stance. She measures in at six inches, the last installment of Medicom’s figures inspired by the Christopher Nolan trilogy. Quite possibly the most infamous fictional lady burglar known in the public consciousness, Catwoman transcends every one of her nine lives with effortless grace.
In her trademark all-black ensemble, replete with thigh-high boots and a utility belt, Catwoman isn’t about to reveal the secrets of her trade. She just wants you to observe and acknowledge — she’ll handle the rough work. After all, she’s got to put her burglar skills to use, right? And, lest we forget: This scene was everything.
True to Anne Hathaway’s depiction of the role, Catwoman is facially sculpted according to the film’s aesthetic. Her stance is somehow nonchalant and attentive at the same time, which gives the figurine a special something. She stands just over 6 inches tall and comes with interchangeable hand parts. Preorder her now for July delivery. This one’s sure to be in-demand amongst dedicated Catwoman fans.
This is an amazingly accurate rendering of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (Catwoman), based on her appearance in The Dark Knight Rises. Her too-small role in the film kept audiences hungry to learn and see more, but, with the end of the trilogy, we won’t get that chance. Guess we’ll just have to play it out with Sideshow’s awesome 12-inch figure.

From the always amazing DCWOMENKICKINGASS comes a look at an upcoming TDKR statue featuring Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle…
DC Direct will be issuing a lot of collectibles for The Dark Knight Rises and here’s a official look at a few pieces at a Catwoman 6” statue and really shows off the high boot of the Catwoman costume…
Hollywood Life shows off a new photo of ANNE HATHAWAY as SELINA KYLE in the upcoming third entry to the Nolan Batman franchise, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. She’s definitely reminiscent of Adam Hughes’ retro-styled Selina and it’s a heartening glimpse at what should be a very interesting character.
In these new photos, Anne Hathaway looks purrrfect as Catwoman’s chic-looking alter-ego Selina Kyle.
Anne was shot on the L.A. set of the upcoming film The Dark Knight Rises shooting scenes as her alter-ego—not as the leather-catsuit-wearing vixen scene in publicity stills released last month by Warner Bros.
Anne’s alter ego was as chic as ever, wearing a black dress and cropped jacket, gloves (how prim and proper!), a wide-brimmed hat and heels. She topped off the ensemble with bright red lipstick and pearl earrings.
For another scene, taking place in the winter, Anne wore a full-length black coat and strappy heels, with her hair pulled back in a bun, as she hailed a cab.
Also spotted on the set, was Christian Bale, who plays Batman in the franchise. While the scenes look interesting, little is known about the storyline for the film, which also stars Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. But who cares about the storyline? Anne looks amazing!
When the first images of the new Catwoman costume were released, most reviews seemed underwhelmed: no ears, long hair, maybe a little too much Selina in her alter-ego. But when MTV spoke with Anne Hathaway herself, she promised a very different story…Here it is from Time of India:
Actress Anne Hathaway has come to the defence of her Catwoman outfit from the movie ” The Dark Knight Rises”, after initial images received not so great responses from fans.
The first photo of Hathaway in full superhero attire began circulating on blogs, message boards and websites last week, but not everyone was impressed.
“I was not going to admit it: I asked someone to send me a few reactions (to the photo).And I happen to know that Mtv’s reaction was meh,” contactmusic.com quoted the 28-year-old as saying.
“What I am happy to say is, if you didn’t like the photo, you only see about a 10th of what that suit can do. And if you did like the photo, you have excellent taste,” she added.
Directed by Christopher Nolan, the movie also features Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gary Oldman and is set to release July next year.
Another awesome break-down of the costume can be found at DC Women Kicking Ass, which is a great blog and one you should definitely follow if you’re on Tumblr.
From the Coventry Telegraph comes the first Catwoman-related words from the set of The Dark Knight Rises. It’s not much, but it’ll have to do for now…
THERE are whispers that Warner Bros will soon follow its unveiling of Tom Hardy’s Bane with an image of Anne Hathaway clad as Catwoman.
But until the day of that revelation – which is sure to make the interwebs melt, judging from the current levels of hysteria – there have been a few items of gossip about Hathaway’s performance as the feline felon in The Dark Knight Rises.
We’ve heard about the actress accidentally giving an actor a black eye with a gun during a fight scene, not to mention talk of multiple wardrobe changes because of Anne’s vigorous exertions splitting the seams of her outfit.
Now comes another report in which she offers a few other tidbits about her involvement in Christopher Nolan’s final Batman flick.
Hathaway says many other contenders had auditioned to play Catwoman, though we don’t yet know who they were.
She revealed: “Chris Nolan tested dozens of girls. I got the audition and then I just had to sit at home and wait for him to decide.”
The interview is on Swedish news site Nojes Bladet in which – with the aid of Google and the correction of some clumsy auto-translation – she adds that she has enjoyed the challenge of taking on the comic book role.
She is well aware that comparisons will be made with other iconic portrayals of Catwoman, such as Eartha Kitt (who purred so perfectly in the 1960s Batman TV series, along with Julie Newmar and – in its film spin-off – Lee Meriwether) and Michelle Pfeiffer (who was so sensuously slinky in latex in Tim Burton’s 1992 feature Batman Returns).
Hathaway isn’t worried by having so much to live up to, explaining: “It makes you work harder. I am taking a chance that something may not work. But there is a certain satisfaction that, at the end of the day, I did everything I could.”
And what about the physical preparations for the role, especially in the light of all those reports of intense action scenes that resulted in ripped costumes?
Hathaway admits to having lost weight for the part but on the training aspect she only has this to say: “That’s a little embarrassing”, she says, laughing nervously. “It’s a bit personal. I’d rather talk about the acting than my training.”
It’s not clear exactly what she means but it no doubt adds to the mystique surrounding the production.
Word is all positive though and over at Hollywood Life, a source on the film set is quoted as saying: “Everything from the looks in her eyes, her head movements, her body – everything is so feline. The role is taking her to new places.”
“It’s really unbelievable how realistic she is in this role, I never expected it.”
We’ll get chance to see for ourselves when The Dark Knight Rises is released on July 20, 2012.
A Fan Manipulation of Hathaway as Catwoman
The Batman’s Catwoman has slunk into another robbery and, also, back onto our shelves. With the over-sized goggles and bright red claws that characterized her look on the animated series, which ran from 2004-2008 as a successor to the Bruce Timm-styled series that came before it.
This 5-inch Mattel figure was available exclusively at 2005’s San Diego Comic Con, but we’ve managed to get our hands on a few and we’re offering them up, now. She looks stunning and the design work of the series really comes across here. Grab it now if you’re a fan of the show, or just the character!
Oh, and speaking of Catwoman, here’s a bit from The Examiner…
While being presented with the Modern Master Award for ‘Inception’ at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Sunday, director Christopher Nolan briefly spoke on ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ reports Coming Soon/Super Hero Hype.
Moderator Peter Hammond asked Nolan where he got the idea for the title of his third film about the caped crusader, to which Nolan jokingly replied: “I banged my head against the wall.”
After the audience laughed, Nolan gave a serious reply. “We’ve worked on it a long time – David Goyer and myself. We’re about 12 weeks away from shooting. We start in May.”
There have been rumors for years that Nolan is bored with his ‘Batman’ series, and that it’s the studio who continuously prods him to make another entry. It’s said that Nolan was content after ‘Batman Begins,’ and never intended to make a sequel.
When asked why he’s making another film, Nolan said, “It was about finishing the story.”
Nearly two weeks ago, it came out that Anne Hathaway had landed the role of Selina Kyle in the new film. In various forms of media, Kyle’s alter ego is Catwoman, and is a character who goes from antagonist to love interest of Bruce Wayne’s at the bat of an eyelash.
Nolan was asked whether Hathaway would make the transition from Selina Kyle to Catwoman in the new film, but Nolan refused to answer and instead gave a coy smile.
With the recent addition of Tom Hardy as Bane, and Christian Bale reprising his role as Bruce Wayne, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is scheduled for a July 20, 2012 release.
