    Yep, it gives a reason to watch it, well, that and being a Batman fan.

    We are forgetting something: Anne Hathaway!

    That's so brilliant casting as Catwoman.

    Why? I just don't get it. What's so special about her? Not being simply contrarian, but I don't see her as the sexual dynamo that Catwoman is supposed to be. Sorry if it ain't pc but Catwoman should have that 'in heat' quality and I just see in her the same asexual energy that Bale already exudes in spades as Bats. I have not seen her in a ton of movies, and she seems like a fair enough actress...yet again, nothing horribly special. It has been brought to my attention that I come off as hateful. I am trying not to be so I ask these questions with true curiousity. Convince me Nolanistas...convince me.

    HATER!!! :P

    In all seriousness, (and I'm totally speculating of course) I think Nolan is likely having less of the sexual energy from Catwoman and more of the smooth thief who falls for Batman. She's manipulative to the rich members of society so they let her in for her heists, but not actually interested. I mean, through all of the comics I ever read with her, she always loved the Bat, but never really let herself fall for him because she loved the chase so much more. Less Michelle Pfeiffer and more umm. . .well, ****. . .I don't know. Just more serious. . .like the rest of these movies. Speaking of, I'm going to go watch The Dark Knight. :P

    Hater! :P

    Similar to Pfeiffer, but still did you see The Princess Diaries? She is one of the few actresses to be able to play vulnerability and then convert to a princess.

    The thing is that is geeks want to see a comic character who is attractive be vulnerable and show that she can she be one of us. Yeah, it's a fantasy, but isn't this largely escapism?

    My sister, haha, told me what's the point of Scarly in the Avengers, and I told her I haven't seen said film, but still Scarly is eye candy...

    And so is Hathaway, but she is able to play show an insecure sexiness and isn't that what Nolan is going with Batman that he is also fragile.

    And yeah..



    I am not going to try to sell this anymore, you either get this version of the Batman universe, or you don't.

    Plus she played Jane Austen... and Christian Bale played Patrick Bateman...Bret Easton Ellis was influenced by Austen.

    This is geek awesomeness! :D

    To be perfectly honest, I wasn't overly excited about her casting when they announced it but I can't think of an actress who I would have been excited to see in that role. I've said it many times but Hollywood lacks quality actresses that are south of 40. They're usually there for their looks and it's rare when looks and chops go together. I'd rather have a good actress play in this particular movie than say, Scarlet Johansson. Like you, I haven't see her in a lot of movies and I hated her hosting job at the Oscars, but I'm willing to see what she's got. No one thought Ledger was a good choice for the Joker and look how that turned out. I also agree that the role requires some sex appeal and see her in her getup is making me come around. Though I think Michael Caine would even look halfway attractive wearing that outfit and mask. Ok, maybe not. I just hope she unzips the top a little at some point.

    I'd recommend avoiding Facebook if you go on there. People love spoiling stuff on their status updates.

    You and I are clearly not hanging around the same women.

    I don't know, you all make decent points. Except Adgy. But the one thing that stands out is SmytheKing's comment that Nolan is going for the more sophisticated aspects of Catwoman's persona...the Gentleman(person) Thief. Ok...certainly more realistic than a sex hungry criminal who rubs up against Batman and purrs. Only one thing...she is wearing a skin tight leather 'nothing-left-to-the-imagination' suit and gimundous heels that aren't suited for walking, much less cat-burglary. Ok, so Nolan wants to work in a world where all things are based in real life extrapolations of comic book characters/situations, EXCEPT when it comes to using sex to sell his movie. Once again, I have been branded a hater, yet am I really speaking out of school here? Batman's costume has evolved throughout, and it has even been mentioned in the 2nd movie if I am not mistaken, for the heights of practicality, yet Catwoman, despite being less overtly sexual than in the comics, still has to wear a leather body glove and **** me boots. Hypocritical at the very least.
    And yes Adgy, so far all I have seen leaves me with a cold asexual feeling from Catwoman. I don't know what kind of women's you hang about, but if she is gonna wear that outfit she has got some kink. Hell, a lot of 'em actually. That does not come off at all in what I have seen of her performance.
