First look at Catwoman from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

You knew it was a matter of time.  Earlier this week, photos surfaced of Bane from the upcoming Batman movie.  Now, Warner Bros officially released our first photo of Selina Kyle aka Catwoman.  This revamped Catwoman's costume was described earlier as "more tactile, like the comic book and less sexy than the Michelle Pfeiffer or Halle Berry's Catwoman costume".

How can she move in that?
A little too Halloween-y for me

Check it out after the break.

We can't see much from the picture, but Nolan hasn't let us down yet with any supposed character/costume change within the series yet.  With this he has steamed away from the almost-iconic-shiny latex to a more versatile outfit for her that fits into his Batman world.  Here seems to be the inspiration for this more modern Catwoman:

Again, not being really cool and knowing much about the universe, my Catwoman history is based solely on the old Batman movie and the Razzie award winning movie starring Halle Berry.  If the above picture is any indication of what her outfit could look like, I get more and more excited about this movie with each new nugget of a picture we get.

So, thoughts?  Do you dig the fresh take on the outfit?

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will be released on July 20, 2012 starring Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt

  1. I think the hair free isn't the best thing in the world. I feel like from a practical standpoint that makes it less realistic is an effective costume. It's kind of like Clark Kent/superman. He doesn't have a mask and you want to tell me that noone picks up on it? Batman has been a lot less campy so I expected something that would pass in the real world as an effective costume. Nolan has been great at doing things though, so I'm expecting a costume that's a lot more utility-based, for the premier thief of the DC universe. All in all, I'm looking forward to Nolan's take on the one woman that has kept Bruce Wayne AND Batman, on their feet.
