    ^ I wouldn't be surprised if Cooke was inspired by that design in the first place.

    I've got to disagree with you there. I think it makes perfect sense for a cat burglar (I'm sorry, I couldn't resist) to have night vision goggles as part of her outfit. I really don't think they'll look any sillier than Crane's Scarecrow mask, Joker's makeup, and Bruce's Batsuit. They may have gotten rid of some of the more comic-booky stuff, but there is still alot in these movies you could easily call "silly".

    Ah, but sense has nothing to do with my objection. Its strictly aesthetic - don't like the look at all. Besides, if she needs goggles (in which case: Why does the Caped Crusader lack them?) they don't need those little tips on the end, no?

    Didn't he have special glasses in his mask that dropped down when he was doing the cell phone radar thing in The Dark Knight? I don't see why he couldn't have night vision glasses that work the same way that we just haven't seen him use.

    I'm sure the TDKR art and prop department could streamline the look of the goggles for the film for them to be more practical visually. Rao...this seems such an inane thing to be nitpicky about, and no that was not intended to be a shot at you Kegg, just a general observation. Selina's goggles have the kitty motif going on with them with the sharp angles protruding upwards. Anyways there are any number of ways the goggles can be redesigned "to look practical" and sure they will be.

    ^ I'm guessing something like a cross between ski goggles and night vision ones.

    I definitely see the goggles, staying... but I do kinda wonder about the ears though.

    I could see Anne being given some kind of stylized cowl piece with trimmed down ears. The ears are supposed to have high tech communication gear in them, the same with Batman's cowl piece.

    I'd be very surprised if we don't have the ears.

    After all, Batman's got his. And the ears are the only thing clearly making it a 'cat' costume.

    Ah, in that case I could see them sticking around then.

    I'm gonna be an extra in The Dark Knight Rises! :D

    They are filming a scene at a football stadium in Pittsburgh on August 6th and I'm going to be an extra!

    Wear a distinctive shirt so we'll be able to pick you out of the crowd.

    She's got claws on her gloves too. And then there's the "tailesque" whip.
