During a recent interview, Anne Hathaway had a lot to say about The Dark Knight Rises!
"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."
More from Anne on her Catwoman role:
"I really got into the comics after I was cast and I like that when she made her first appearance she meets Bruce Wayne and says 'Let go of me or I’ll claw your eyes out,' and he says, 'Careful, claws in or papa spank,' so I’m glad we’ve come a long way since then. I’m not saying anything against Bob Kane, though."
And more from Anne about her role:
"What’s come before doesn’t limit or even affect this new version. It doesn’t affect me because each Catwoman – and this is true in the comics as well – she is defined by the context of the Gotham City created around her. Catwoman is so influenced by Gotham and whoever is creating Gotham at the time. Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman was informed by Tim Burton's Gotham and Eartha Kitt was informed by Adam West's Gotham. You have to live in whatever the reality of the world is and whatever Gotham is."
Sooooo exciting! We may not have been thrilled with her costume when we first saw it, but we still think Anne will be a FANTASTIC Catwoman!!!!!
What do U think? Excited to see Anne as Catwoman? Is Gotham City "full of grace?"
