A lot of people were quite surprised when it was announced that Anne Hathaway would be playing Catwoman in the upcoming Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises. However, everyone involved in the project has claimed that the doubters are set to be pleasantly surprised by Anne’s performance as Catwoman and Anne has discussed a little of what fans can expect from Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises.
Hathaway explained, “Gotham City is full of grace. You look at Heath’s [Ledger] performance as the Joker, there was a lot of madness there but there was also a grace and he had a code there. There’s a lot of belief and codes of behaviour in Gotham and my character has one, too. A lot of the way she moves and interacts with people is informed by her worldview.”
She added, “Chris [Nolan] has given us all such complex, defined, sophisticated worldviews that it’s just a matter of doing your homework and getting underneath the character’s skin.” Christian Bale is set to don the Batman suit for the third and final time, when The Dark Knight Rises hits the big screen on July 20, 2012.
