Anne is incredibly precise and articulate about the psychology of the character. She’s really built it from the ground up, it’s just a delight to watch her perform. … She’s an incredible character and we’re very excited to see her, and hopefully we’ll leave people wanting more.
Well, if that’s not ‘letting the cat out of the bag’ (sorry) then allow me to elaborate.
The above quote was taken from an interview that The Dark Knight Rises director, Christopher Nolan, gave to Access Hollywood regarding Anne Hathaway’s portrayal of Catwoman in his latest Batman outing. And it seems that her performance impressed the superstar director so much that he would like to see her reprise the role in her own spinoff movie. But, as for Nolan himself, it appears he is done with the whole Batman universe for the foreseeable future, he went on to say…..
For me, Gotham and these characters, I’m done. I’ve told our story and I’m moving on … [but] I certainly think she deserves it, she’s incredible.
Which is a shame as I imagine at least some of the on screen magic Hathaway managed to create was due to his writing and direction. But, if this does come about, and that’s a big if, then whoever does pick up the reigns couldn’t make a movie as bad as Catwomen’s 2004 outing, staring Halle Berry, could they? It would be good to see a dark and brooding Catwomen story as the character has some interesting levels that could be explored, if done in the right way of course. Fingers crossed.
