Anne Hathaway would love to return to the DCEU for a Catwoman spin-off

Anne Hathaway The Dark Knight Rises Catwoman

Of the three installments of Christopher Nolan's much celebrated Batman trilogy, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is probably the film I've revisited the least, which has left me scratching my head wondering what I thought of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. I guess I'll need to add it to my movie night schedule. Unlike my forgetful brain, Anne Hathaway still has very fond memories of her time in the catsuit and she spoke with Variety at the Toronto International Film Festival to reveal that she'd love to reprise the role at some point.

I loved that character and I had such a blast playing her, I’m not sure how it would work because I think the Chris Nolan chapter of the Batman story has been wrapped up and I’m part of that, but I love the DC Universe and it would be fun to take a trip back.

As Hathaway said, Nolan's time in the Bat-verse is done and there will likely be a different actress taking on the role of Catwoman the next time we see the character, but the idea of a Catwoman spin-off sounds interesting even without Anne Hathaway in the role. There's no way that could turn out badly. Oh, wait. Hathaway doesn't feel ownership of the role however and said that she'll have no problem passing the baton to another actress when the time comes.

It sort of goes with the territory when you accept it and receive it from the last Catwoman. I was shown such generosity from Halle [Berry] and from Michelle [Pfeiffer], and so I would do that the next time as well.

Who would you like to see play Catwoman in the DCEU?

Love her, loved her as Catwoman...

... But the state of the DCEU is an absolute mess. Even if they ask, she shouldn't say yes unless she knows who's directing.

Seeing Hathaway in skin tight vinyl was the highlight of that Batman movie. I had to see it just for that alone. A movie with just her sounds awesome.

Thought she was great (though they could've called her "Catwoman" at least once), and after the Joker she was the most interesting non-Batman character. It would make for a good DC movie...and make people forget 2004 CINO.

I would love that (and not just because I have a crush on her) but as already stated it would confuse the DCEU.

Loved her as Catwoman

She's my favorite part of TDKR and I always wanted to see more of her. Her portrait is spot-on and the closest to the comics yet (Pfeiffer was great, but pretty different from the source) and the costume is a nice homage to Julie Newmar's version.
But like she said, the franchise is done so I don't see her return...expect in a new role of course.

There wasn't much to go on with her take in TDKR, and Nolan is pretty weak when it comes to directing women. So I guess it would be cool to see her return, maybe in the solo Batman movie. I think she'd play off Affleck way better than Bale. That said, I cringe at the thought of subjecting any Catwoman to the mess that is the DCEU.

That would be a mistake

Wouldnt bother watching that, even on TV.

Carla Gugino is someone I would LOVE to see as the new Selina Kyle/Catwoman in this new DCEU.

Why you got so many downvotes? That would be a great pick!

Especially now that we have an 'older' Batman (and, therefore, logically, his 'gallery'), a 45 years old (former, but not quite)Catwoman with Gugino's curves (and talent) would be great...
Don't understand the downvoting of this suggestion.
Guys, if you disagree (your prerogative), could you explain why, instead of just downvoting, please ?!

Other than her ass when she climbed on the BatPod, I liked nothing about what she brought to the role. She overacted big time. Sorry Anne, I'm ready for someone like Alicia Vikander or Charlize Theron to put on the ears.

I'm one of the few (are we the few?) who thought she did really great in the role. But I'd leave it where it is - as she acknowledged, this franchise is wrapped up. It was never meant to be part of a bigger universe.

I liked Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle

so I'd have no problem with her returning to the DCEU ... if the script was right.
