    I really like the Catwoman costume. It's fits into Nolan's more realistic universe, but at the same time it's still recognizably Catwoman. I think the goggles as ears thing is a really good idea.

    I love this picture. She's cute and has a bit of a vulnerable side showing.

    Agreed. Newmar was clearly the inspiration for this look, with logical updates to fit within Nolan's universe. Love the pull-down goggles too, very practical.

    I've got two things to say about that second news story:
    1) Anne Hathaway is THE AWESOME for knowing who Harley Quinn is and trying to bring her to life
    2) Nolan once again proves how great he is by recognizing Anne as the best fit for one character based on her attempt to channel another

    Shouldn't we getting a new trailer soon? Or is it just me feeling that the two trailers we've seen were underwhelming?

    We can probably expect a third trailer sometime in May. Some thoughts have been that it could be attached with "Avengers" but the more likely movie is "Dark Shadows" which is a Warner Bros produced film.

    ^ It will be curious for those of us of a certain age to see a Batman film featuring Catwoman being advertised before a Tim Burton movie, which co-stars Michelle Pfeiffer.

    Indeed so. I thought about that...but don't see why they wouldn't attach it with "Dark Shadows". Marvel and DC have advertised each others films in various of their comics...so it is possible that a trailer could be attached with "Avengers". That seems a little early to me (yeah I know, there are a lot of people impatient with the marketing campaign...but the Nolan has a plan). :)

    ^ Oh, there's no reason not to attach it - indeed, I would have thought that the two movies will appeal to a broadly similar audience. It's just a funny little coincidence is all.

    It's funny you say that. The trailers show interesting things happening I guess, but they really don't get me too pumped to see the film. they are a bit lazy....

    This, exactly. I'm getting more pumped by the behind the scenes leakes we've been getting then from the trailers really.

    It may be early, but it's the same thing they did with The Dark Knight, whose second trailer was attached to Iron Man. And so far, they have kept pretty close to the marketing of the last film (teaser in the summer, first trailer + prologue in Decembre). Plus: definitely more people will see the trailer if it's with The Avengers than with Dark Shadows.

    that doesn't matter as much these days, though-the trailer will be online the next day anyway.

    It only makes sense. Many in attendance are the same audience + it'll have a high % of casual general audience types in the crowd. Something not likely to be had with it's inter-studio film Dark Shadows.

    They are far enough apart from one another for Marvel/Disney to agree to this. A 'quid' to be 'pro quoed' at a later date I'd imagine.

    Anyone who's seen Avengers get this?

    We came in a bit late (well actually the movie started way earlier than normal, usually you have to sit through seemingly hours of ads) and saw the new Amazing Spider-Man trailer and some others, but wasn't sure if we either missed the DKR one or if it wasn't on.

    I'll probably be seeing Avengers again anyway, but I imagine the new trailer will surface on the internet soon
