Anne Hathaway responds to Catwoman criticism

08.09.2011

Ever since the first picture of Catwoman hit the internet last week, all of us fans have been making our own judgments about it. If you think those involved with the production don't listen to such things, you're wrong, as Hathaway herself has heard the complaints, and addressed them to MTV.

"I was not going to admit it," Hathaway begins when probed with the question of her first reaction to the photo. "I asked someone to send me a few reactions [to the photo], and I happen to know that MTV's reaction was 'meh.' "

"What I am happy to say is, if you didn’t like the photo, you only see about a 10th of what that suit can do, and if you did like the photo, you have an excellent taste."

I didn't really have an opinion one way or the other. I wasn't expecting it to be as much of a catsuit as past installments with ears and all, but what we saw didn't quite look like a costume, just a bodysuit and some strange sunglasses.

There's an additional report out from Batman-News that claims to know a bit more about the character.

"Catwoman is apparently one of the most well written characters we’ve seen in these movies so far and she could potentially steal the show the way Heath Ledger did last time. She does some cool stuff in the movie like jumping out of windows and stealing the Batpod. Her back story is that she has a history of abuse and works as a stripper and is also a pickpocket."

Take that how you will, but it doesn't sound too terribly legitimate to me. We can see that she steals the Batpod from the photos, and I expected someone to jump out of a window at least once during an action movie. The abuse and stripper angles could be true, and I definitely would want to see Hathaway filling that latter role.

Tom Hardy has facebook!?


Morning fellow Joblo'ers.I stumbled upon this on facebook this morning. Don't know if it is legit or not, but very well may be. I am in Pittsburgh where all the TDK:R shooting is going on right now and am trying to confirm. I will say that I did have a former student who worked as an extra fighter when Hardy was here filming Warrior two years ago. My former got to hang out at Hardy's place and play Xbox. Says he was just a super down to earth dude. Maybe Hardy is taking the Vin Diesel

OK, from now on.. I'm not reading anything about this anymore! I'll do the whole Inception thing again, where I didn't read or saw anything related (quite a challenge I might add) and it blew me away!

Still say she looks hot and Nolan IS the man!

Alright, alright, people calm down. This is Nolan's world. What doesn't make sense to us now makes sense to him. We always do this and we'll eat our words later. No other filmmaker has proven that more than Nolan, and no other film proved that more than "Batman Begins". I was excited when I first he was hired to direct....but then I started seeing pictures. The ears were wrong, the batmobile wasn't even black (at the time), and why the hell would you do a reboot when you could just do Batman 5?

The ears were wrong, the batmobile wasn't even black (at the time), and why the hell would you do a reboot when you could just do Batman 5? You know what? I was wrong and happy that I was. So then we do "Dark Knight", and Heath Ledger was cast (I wanted Hugo Weaving after seeing V For Vendetta), but I reserved judgement and trusted Nolan because I was proven wrong on "Begins". And after "The Prestige" mind you (underrated, one of the best and geek-euphoric casts ever) and now "Inception", Ima sit back and let Nolan do what he's doing. I could be wrong, I could eat my words in July '12, but no other filmmaker has excelled at defying the odds like Nolan, especially with first pics that make you say "Are you kidding?
He's working it, and doing it, just as he should. Because at midnight screenings on opening night, based on repeated past history, I think we're gonna be more than alright ;)

I'm sorry, but more than Catwoman, I just can't get over Bane's voice in the stadium. I just hope this isn't Hardy's voice and it will be redone post prod. Any grandpa would sound scarier. As for Pussywoman, the big issue is that her head is not hidden whatsoever. There is no mystery to her. I think that's what bothers me the most. She does not even have a mask.

Like you, I love keeping up to date with movie news. I try not to read comments because they get me angry. All you fan boys/girls sound like you have the right to an opinion when it comes to making the third film in this brilliant Batman trilogy. "Cat woman should be this! Cat woman should be that."

Try making a film yourself instead one day and you'll see what a challenge it is, and what a measured and brilliant writer/director Nolan is. And Zohan... Hathaway did not make that comment. It came from Batman News. Learn how to read buddy. The rest of you. Turn off Webcam roulette, get up from your desks in your mum's basement and go get some exercise.

That quote from her right there made me lose even more respect for her. That's like Justin Beiber saying he's the Kurt Cobain of his generation. Pure nonsense.

Go back and read the article. She never compared her performance to Ledger's, "someone that claims to know more about the character" did. You just lost respect for someone for something they didn't even say.

We should know already that this won't be the traditional take on Catwoman. People really jumped on those pics that were leaked without knowing the context, and I am pretty sure there is a context there besides "this is what Catwoman looks like the entire film". Personally, a suit without ears won't bother me. I still think that the Batman Returns portrayal of Catwoman, in respects to the suit, was fantastic, but this is a different world. Look at Bane? He's not the traditional Bane from the

He's not the traditional Bane from the comics and TV series. I don't see what all the fuss is about, really. It's a tightsuit. It fits in with her being a thief. As I've stated, we could be looking at it all wrong. Maybe she doesn't actually become Catwoman until later on in the film, and is merely Selena Kyle through most of it, same as Harvey Dent was Harvey Dent until the end of TDK. I think people need to calm down and wait until we see something more official before getting all bent out of shape over a few leaked photos.

Honestly, this whole debacle could have been avoided if they just released a photograph of Catwoman actually LOOKING like Catwoman.

From what the public has to take away from this, we've been given a random, unidentifiable interpretation of a classic character that does not resemble the character in the slightest. I mean if this is what she's really going to look like in the film, they might as well have made her a completely different character if she is not going to appear anything like

I mean come on, please tell me there's at least going to be a cat mask with pointy ears or SOMETHING. Not this faux leather bullshit with James Bond gadgetry and ridiculously large optic lenses.

Releasing a photo like this first is kind of Nolan's style.

Do you remember what the first released picture for the Dark Knight was? A guy in a clown mask. It ended up being the Joker but people were furious at the time. Everyone was mad that of everything he could show Nolan gives us some guy in a clown mask.

It seems like he enjoys messing with people like that

@PityTheFool - that's not true, the first official Joker picture released was the ECU of his face surrounded by black. That clown photo from the bank robbery came later and I recall no such controversy attached to it.

I wouldn't give Nolan too much credit here. These photos are surely approved by him but dictated by the studio marketing department. I imagine the reason this one came when it did is because they knew set photos of her in this getup would be leaking imminently.

WTF: Since when is Catwoman all gadget orientated? This just gets lamer with each day.
Is Bane's voice 1/10th as retarded as it sounds too?
LOL From stripper to crime fighting superhero. Hey, it worked for Diablo Cody

I don't care what your suit does.

All it should do is look sexy and resemble a CAT motif. That's IT. Catwoman isn't supposed to be Inspector Gadget.

Catwoman isn't Iron Man. She's not Batman. Her suit shouldn't do anything.

I'm sure she'll do great, but I'm sorry, she's not "stealing any scenes like Ledger's Joker did". You can't possibly compare those two characters, and they should leave that idea alone.

Meh indeed

I dig the suit and the stripper angle, and maybe even that the goggles would make her an awesome thief. But she's just wearing big glasses - wouldn't Bats be able to figure out who she is pretty darn easily?

Not wild about it, but I like Anne and I have no doubt the flick will be killer.

The first thing I want to put out there is, have we confirmed that this is indeed a picture of Catwoman, or is it of Selina Kyle as herself? If it is indeed Catwoman, if Batman has bat ears and bat wings, why shouldn't Catwoman have cat ears? I just plain don't like what I'm looking at. It's bland. And as for Catwoman/Kyle stealing the show the same way The Joker did? Seriously?

The more I hear about this "Catwoman"...

...the more skeptical I've been becoming. From the look of the costume (PLEASE to the gods let it be an incomplete version, the complete version of which we have yet to see) to Selena Kyle's [link] so sure. No, I'm holding all opinions of what I really think until I see the dang film.

Give it a rest fellas. Nolan isn't going to make Catwoman either a Halle Berry cartoon nor some knockoff on a skintight leather Kate Beckinsale character. These movies have ruled because he, his brother, and Goyer fundamentally understand the characters and what they represent to the Batman mythos. True of Joker, true of Scarecrow, true of R'as, true of Two-Face, true of Gordon, true of Thomas Wayne. He's earned the right to surprise us again.

To me the big reveal is the 'stripper angle.'

To me the big reveal is the 'stripper angle.' Those who've read 'Batman: Year One' know that her origin there is as a prostitute. She's going to be a character risen from the corruption and crime that Batman. She'll be very much a product of Gotham as it was. I'm guessing her transformation in Catwoman will be a metaphor for Gotham as it is now. And thats not something we've necessarily seen thus far in the Nolan movies.

Okay honestly, quit the bitching. There's obviously going to be cat ears at some point in the movie. I'm not a Nolan fanboy, but I know he's smart enough not to deviate that far away from a character design that's been around for 60+ years. Calm your cooches. It's one picture.

Why even complain...

With the first movie, there was criticism for the Batmobile. In the second movie there was criticism for the Joker having those scars and actually applying makeup opposed to his comic book counterpart. And you know what? Those movies ended up blowing us away with awesomeness! Have faith in Nolan damn it! This movie going to be epic. Do NOT question it!

Yeah, donĀ“t question it. Get on the Nolan-fantrain, every wannabe-nerd is already waiting. I was underwhelmed with NolanĀ“s flicks and thereĀ“s only so much "pseudo-realism" you can apply to the Batman-myth without killing any kind of visual impact or fun!

There could still be Cat ears coming later on, this could be early in the film? I guess it won't matter when the movie comes out if it is amazing though.

Why is it ok for Batman to have ears, but not ok for Catwoman?

... I think they're just trying to distance themselves from the Halle Barry flick. I for one, would have loved cat ears.
I think the "meh" reaction, she talks about, is spot on. No hates it, but no one loves it.

The only time Catwoman has had noticeable ears to me was Batman Returns. If I really think about it, I barely remember them in BTAS

Forgive me for wanting it to look more iconic like the Catwoman designs featured in the comic books. This just seems like an uninspired effort.
Take the Batpod away and ask somebody who that is meant to be. If they think she's meant to be some futuristic spy character, don't be surprised.
Nolan has managed to remain faithful to the aesthetics of all the major players, even while putting his own spin on them. Bane fits in with the world but, quite frankly, still looks like he can fit right

This is just too different to sit right with some fans and I can't say I blame them.
I realise that she can be cat-like in her performance but, let's be serious, Batman is dressed like a human-bat. How is that any more realistic?
I'm hoping when Hathaway says, "...you only see about a 10th of what that suit can do...", that there is some kind of cowl attachment included.
I'll reserve judgement for now but this is still not sitting right with me.

as I said the other day, if she was listed as an orginal character, everyone would be yelling that she is obviously Nolan's rendition of Catwoman. So you might as well call her Catwoman.

I am actually a little surprised at Anne Hathaway's insecurity. She is a lovely actress and well accomplished, she has a special beauty, but she still seems unsure of herself. Puzzling.

Wouldn't you be playing a classic character?

Initial Reaction...

... the the Tumbler was extremely weak. Most online nerds thought it was pathetic. They also were upset the costume wouldnt have the black and yellow logo. They were also dissapointed with the first photos of Heath Ledger as the Joker. And of course now Hathaway's Catwoman getup, and first looks at Bane have been met with a "meh" as well. So that means with Nolans track record on Batman, this movie will only make 2 billion dollars.

It can make 100 billion dollar and still suck in my opinion. ;-)

Love the costume...

It's functional and sexy. You can't ask for more and I'm sure she's giving 100% to the role. In Nolan We Trust. End of statement.

"Catwoman" will probably just be Selina Kyle's stripper name, anyway. Nolan.
