Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Perhaps I did get a bit confused about what you did say. I see that you said you would wait and see what the film did. My apologies.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

In fairness, when I first saw the goggles-n-suit look several years ago, I was a bit unsure too. I was really used to the B:TAS look.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

^ Indeed. I immediately loved the redesign. I dunno I think it looks practical and makes Selina absolutely gorgeous in it.

I picture something akin to Michelle Ryan's outfit in Doctor Who






Or Rachel Nichols in G.I Joe

I await the moaning about the goggles.
Catwoman wears goggles now?

I went and did a quick google image search to see if that looked as bad as it sounds... and it does.

Feh. Look have your luchador lug if you want but I was kind of hoping for a nice Catwoman look in this film.
Weird. It's the complete opposite for me. I've never liked any other Catwoman costume, at all. Especially the Jim Balent one, which is hideous.

Is there something wrong with my cones that makes me see purple catsuits as awful and ruinous? I felt the same way about Seven of Nine.

Also it was about time the often-physically-engaged character got a haircut and covered what was left. That she looks better, as almost all women do, with shorter hair is beside the point.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I see something similar to Rachel Nichols rather than Michelle Ryan, except with the goggles and a kitty mask of course. I am curious too if they're going to touch on the Falcone connection in this movie. Ahhhh the possibilities.

Personally, I like the current costume, and I can see it looking really good on screen.
That's what I had in mind.

I saw a photo online somewhere of a fan made Catwoman costume (with goggles) for a masquerade party. And this girl also had the looks for it. It looked fantastic and very well made.
Lots of costume pics out there...





She looks like Rachel Miner.

Another nice shot...



More pics here.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Those give a really good idea about how a costume could be. Impressive.

I could definitely see that working in the Nolanverse.

I suspect Nolan would tone down the points on the ears and goggles, but yeah otherwise it looks like it would be a great fit.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Yep, those are the pics I saw. I think they rather lay to rest the notion that this costume couldn't work.

Well my gold standard (and by 'gold standard' I mean 'the solitary specific one I can actually remember') would be the Pfieffer, which always seemed like one of the best getups in the Burton films.

Probably would like it better without the white lines but eh.

Nah. I'm not sure the film may find a way to integrate the goggles in a way that doesn't seem goofy, but that fan attempt ain't it.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

The goggles give Selina night vision, and I believe Bruce and Babs have upgraded them several times. I believe she can tap into the Oracle database and has restricted Bat-Computer access. Michelle Pfieffer's costume was a great one. I also liked the "Batman: The Animated Series" costume as well.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Take out the white lines and add the goggles, and the Pfeiffer and Darwyn Cooke costumes are pretty similar, actually.
