Anne Hathaway in first-look Catwoman image from Dark Knight Rises

Hollywoodnews.com: Here, kitty kitty. Warner Bros. has unveiled a first look at Anne Hathaway in Catwoman garb from Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” filming now. Here’s the photo (via Moviehole):
While the photo doesn’t give us a full head-to-toe shot of slinky Selina Kyle, it does show us Hathaway’s sleek black look for the film. The pic also raises questions, even as it pretends to offer answers. For instance, if Catwoman’s on Batman’s prized Bat-Pod, does that mean she’s an ally of the Dark Knight? Or has she confiscated the Caped Crusader’s ride as he recovers from – oh, I don’t know – a broken back?
Since we’ve already seen footage of Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne with Hathaway’s Kyle, we know that those two will know each other in at least one form. But are their alter ego’s friends or foes? This image doesn’t necessarily tell us, and I’m digging the mystery of it all. Further exploration of this new Catwoman image points out what looks like cones on her spy goggles (right in front of the blue lights), so that when she pushes the goggles up on her head, she’ll have pointy cat ears. Awesome.
Catwoman is making a serious push back into the Batman mythology, with co-starring roles in both Dark Knight Rises and the upcoming video game Arkham City. Hathaway has a long way to go before she unseats Michelle Pfeiffer as the quintessential Catwoman, but this early tease suggests she’s heading in the right direction with the character. As if we expected anything less from Nolan.
