Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

The costume isn't bad, necessarily. It is just that it is surprisingly low-key when compared to Catwoman in the comics (or at least for the last 10 years or so). I guess it depends on how it is used in the film.

On thing I am dubious about are the impractical heels given that Nolan's films strive for some sense of realism. Then again, it is all about context. And we have none here.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

The trouble with commenting on set pics is that they're all out of context, and yet we still feel the need to comment on them which of course is fine. It's the judging part from fans who are on the iffy side of things that can be amusing at times. My thoughts are that if it appears to be a certain way then there is probably a very good reason why that is in within the context of the film that we still don't know anything about. We're just looking at footage and photos.

I think the costume is pretty cool...a Nolan-esque version of Darwyn Cook's design, minus the goggles which I still wanna see but I'm guessing those things we saw on her before when she was on the Bat-Pod were the goggles
I agree, I don't think it's that bad. It's pretty much what I expected. I would like to see the goggles and her hair needs to be covered up, but I don't think it's bad though.

Either way, Arkham City catwoman pulls it off better. Anne Hathaway just looks awkward.
You do realize, your comparing an animated Catwoman specifically posing like Catwoman, with a shot of Anne Hathaway specifically not posing as Catwoman at that moment?

Because I doubt they were shooting a scene with her when that picture was taken.

I know some people might have preferred a more comic-book accurate look, but I'm fine with what Nolan has given us. I don't think it's such a radical departure from the comic-books. Anne Hathaway looks like, for all intents and purposes, Catwoman. She's wearing black leather, has a mask of some sort, and has cat ears. That's Catwoman to me.
Nolan's Catwoman and Two-Face look more like their comic book counterparts than any live-action version of the characters I've seen.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

The costume itself looks ok. More or less what i was expecting except the high heels.
On the other hand, I don't much like the way Hathaway looks wearing it. Reminds me more of some ordinary woman, who's never been to the gym, wearing a costume than a martial arts trained, cat-like agile thief.

But, we'll see. Movie magic, editing, lighting and context are all missing from these shots.

I wonder what overlap there is between those who complained that the new Superman suit is too different from the comics and those who complained that the Catwoman suit is too similar to the comics...

I just don't think she has the body type to pull it off, personally. Too lanky.

^ You'd prefer a short, stocky Catwoman?

Not to mention she has great tits!

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

This has been in tune of what we've been seeing since those set photos of the the stuntwoman riding the Batpod. I think it looks fine. But while I don't mind the heels aesthetically, I just don't see how they would be practical in catburglar-ing. Ah well, here I am prejudging out of context set photos, but I'll reserve judgement when I see her in action.

Yup, and that's probably not an actual scene in the movie, so, she may just look awkward, simply because she's not posing and acting in character.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Hathaway's outfit isn't all that removed from the catsuit Selina's been wearing for years now. Except for the thigh-high stiletto boots but for all we know they're some special magnetized heels that let her walk on walls.

I do wonder why she has lipstick on in that shot, though.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

One cannot take early criticism too seriously because most of us know we're seeing something out of context. That said one shouldn't expect nothing but flattering praise for every tidbit of news that comes out.

As much as I like Nolan's take on Batman overall there are still quibbles, but weighed against what has worked they're minor ones. I didn't initially like the Tumbler, but my opinion changed. I'm still not that crazy about Batman's costume, but I can live with it. Presently I don't care for Catwoman's costume and I'm still skeptical of casting Anne Hathaway in the role (even though I like her as an actress), but I'll wait and see.

I think the Catwoman costume looks fine, though it could use a proper headpiece.
This what we see from the photos does not seem to hide her face/identity very well
