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.
    ****...you got me there.

    I don't know. It's possible that we'll find out the reasons she's rocking that outfit, perhaps we won't. I did dig the fact that they actually went into the whole "I need the suit to be in pieces instead of a full body cast" thing. That was a little detail I hadn't though about, but it added to the whole "real" thing.

    As far as Hathaway, she's pretty solid as an actress. I think she's underrated mostly because any of her starring works (and I'll put the Academy Awards thing in there as well), she's always played the goofy girl trying to find her way. She's never done the whole sexualized femme fatale role or anything so people can't see it. I have faith that she's going to nail it though. If only because Nolan (for whatever faults he may have) always seems to get a great performance out of people. Hell, he actually got a decent performance out of Pacino. Something that no one has done in like 30 years. I'm sure he can get Hathaway to get you to buy into her role.

    I've often said, outside of Ledger, Nolan's best work as a director directing actors is in Insomnia. Imagine having to tame both Pacino AND Robin Williams.

    I'm certainly not one to judge a book by it's cover, but I can damn sure admire a well dressed cover sometimes. Even on a ****ty book.

    Harry is profoundly disappointed with DARK KNIGHT RISES!
    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    Wow. Harry is a total soft sell unapologetic fanboy. This is about the nastiest reaction I have ever read of his.
