Is Anne Hathaway Catwoman? Maybe Batgirl…Published by Clay Cane on Wednesday, January 19, 2011 at 11:11 pm.
Anne Hathaway is a ridiculously talented actress — if you haven’t seen Rachel Getting Married, rent it immediately. However, the selection of the 2011 Oscar co-host as one of the most iconic female figures in comic books, Catwoman, is a miscast for many Batman fans. Nonetheless, I’m happy it’s not Angelina Jolie. Zahara’s mama is colonizing everyone’s roles!
Warner Bros. announced that Hathaway will play Catwoman aka Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises, a follow up to 2008’s The Dark Knight. Hathaway knows how to reinvent herself for a role but this would require a complete overhaul that seems unattainable. Catwoman? No. I see her more as Batgirl! The clip below is proof.
Anne might surprise us and we all know Halle Berry wasn’t going to reprise her role. I’d rather see Eva Mendes or Zoe Saldana, but my #1 one pick would be Lucy Liu.
You can’t mention Catwoman without the one who paved the way (shout out to Julie Newmar – the original!), the legendary and late-great Eartha Kitt. Check out the clip below of Eartha as Catwoman.
Do you see Anne Hathaway as Catwoman?
