Anne Hathaway Talks Dark Knight Rises, Says ‘Gotham Is Full Of Grace’

anne hathaway talks dark knight rises

How poetic!

During a recent interview, Anne Hathaway had a lot to say about The Dark Knight Rises!

Here are some HIGHlights:

“Gotham City is full of grace. You look at Heath├óΓé¼Γäós performance as the Joker, there was a lot of madness there but there was also a grace and he had a code there. There├óΓé¼Γäós 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├óΓé¼Γäós just a matter of doing your homework and getting underneath the character├óΓé¼Γäós 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├óΓé¼Γäóll claw your eyes out,’ and he says, ‘Careful, claws in or papa spank,’ so I├óΓé¼Γäóm glad we├óΓé¼Γäóve come a long way since then. I├óΓé¼Γäóm not saying anything against Bob Kane, though.”

And more from Anne about her role:

“What├óΓé¼Γäós come before doesn├óΓé¼Γäót limit or even affect this new version. It doesn├óΓé¼Γäót affect me because each Catwoman ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ and this is true in the comics as well ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ 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?”
