During the week, Catwoman/Selina Kyle in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, gave an interview to the LA Times and got a little chatty. When asked about her character’s role in the movie she revealed a little about how she ties in to the story and how she is caught between Bane (Tom Hardy) and Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale):
‘Gotham City is a war zone. A ruthless madman named Bane has ripped away any sense of security and the citizens, haggard and clutching suitcases with refugee anxiety, sit behind barbed wire waiting to see what will blow up next. A hooded prisoner is dragged in – it’s Bruce Wayne, one of Gotham’s most famous faces – but the eyes of the crowd go instead to the woman in black standing at the top of the staircase.
“Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane needs these guys himself,” says sultry Selina Kyle, played here by actress Anne Hathaway, navigating the steps with stiletto heels that, on closer inspection, turn out to have serrated edges capable of leaving nasty claw marks in a fight. She also wears high-tech goggles that, when not in use, flip up and resemble feline ears.’
Hmmmm…. consider us, once again, giddy with excitement
