News: Anne Hathaway On Catwoman and Some Juicy The Dark Knight Rises Spoilers

The LA Times’ Hero Complex has an exclusive look at The Dark Knight Rises and an interview with the lovely Anne Hathaway. I suggest you check it out. If you haven’t got the time, though, here are some of the highlights *BEWARE SPOILERS*

Speaking about her love for the Cat costume, Hathaway says “I love the costume. I love the costume because everything has a purpose, nothing is in place for fantasy’s sake, and that’s the case with everything in Christopher Nolan’s Gotham City.”

And in the description of a previewed scene, we find out a new ability of her suit – “Gotham City is a war zone. A ruthless madman named Bane has ripped away any sense of security and the citizens, haggard and clutching suitcases with refugee anxiety, sit behind barbed wire waiting to see what will blow up next. A hooded prisoner is dragged in – it’s Bruce Wayne, one of Gotham’s most famous faces – but the eyes of the crowd go instead to the woman in black standing at the top of the staircase.

“Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane needs these guys himself,” says sultry Selina Kyle, played here by actress Anne Hathaway, navigating the steps with stiletto heels that, on closer inspection, turn out to have serrated edges capable of leaving nasty claw marks in a fight. She also wears high-tech goggles that, when not in use, flip-up and resemble feline ears.”

Serrated heels? Nice. The most interesting part of this is that Selina appears to be working for Bane at this point. Is she a baddie? Or more likely, playing both sides, seeing who wins?

And finally Hathaway gives some insight into what it’s like working with Chris Nolan – “Gotham City is full of grace. You look at Heath’s performance as the Joker, there was a lot of madness there but there was also a grace and he had a code there. There’s a lot of belief and codes of behavior in Gotham and my character has one, too. A lot of the way she moves and interacts with people is informed by her worldview. Chris has given us all such complex, defined, sophisticated worldviews that it’s just a matter of doing your homework and getting underneath the character’s skin.”

Very very interesting. It’s great to hear from Anne Hathaway at last, after the big boys had their say. I’m sure she’ll kick ass.

The Dark Knight Rises hits the giant IMAX screens here in the UK from the 20th July.
