Dark Knight Rises is set for a summer 2012 release and screen shots are already being circulated throughout the internet. Nolan returns to direct the blockbuster trilogy with the film set to be the dramatic conclusion to the series in wherein Batman was reintroduced to us through leading man Christian Bale.
The screen shots of the set that is being talked about all over the internet circles around Anne Hathaway, the 28 year old actress who will play the role of Cat Woman. The costume in which she appears in the shots online does not really remind many of the history of the Femme Fatale.
She appears in a futuristic-looking costume with 3d looking goggles that cover her eyes. Those who are familiar with the Batman series are crying foul and it remains to be seen what exactly the costume will look like and how Hathaway will play the role.
Anne Hathaway recently spoke saying the pictures do not represent the overall look of the costume and there is more to discover, but fans see it differently. MTV has called the pictures “underwhelming” but nothing more is known about the movie and the direction it will take.
The worst of it came in a recent poll done by US Magazine in which fans were asked who they considered the sexiest Cat Woman. The answer was pretty clear and not in favor of the newest leading lady. Michelle Pfeiffer finished with 52 percent of the vote, the expected favorite Halle Berry earned 37 percent while Hathaway came in last with 11 percent.
11 percent is not a bad starting point considering the movie is still a year away and both of her predecessors are considered icons. Much will change between then and now but fans are already showing their lack of patience for the role and since little is still known, there is a lot of room for fueled opinions to brew.
