Batman fans will be thrilled to see the first official pic of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle aka Catwoman in the next instalment of the franchise The Dark Knight Rises. Anne – who stars in the much-anticipated One Day later this month – takes on the role most recently played by Michelle Pfeiffer in 1992’s Batman Returns and Halle Berry in 2004's Catwoman.
We’re given just a tantalising glimpse of her costume – what looks to be a textured leather catsuit (obviously…) with a zip front and high-heeled boots, but mostly her outfit is hidden by what appears to be Batman’s motorcycle (can’t WAIT to see what that’s all about!). And there’s no mask a la Michelle Pfeiffer, instead, Anne sports an intriguing pair of blue-lit goggles…
There is, of course, a slick of sexy red lipstick – the character just wouldn’t be the same without it; and Anne's hair is swept back into a bouncy high ponytail (how very on-trend). We can’t wait for more updates as we get closer to the 2012 release!
