Most news coming out of The Dark Knight Rises stems from onlookers watching production take place, providing moviegoers with our first look at Bane (Tom Hardy), the returning Tumblers, the Batwing and most intriguingly, the hot topic that is Anne Hathaway's Catwoman costume.
The first pics of Hathaway as Selina Kyle's alter ego had her riding that Batpod, seemingly as an ally of Batman, but it was missing the "cat" features like her mask and cat ears. Whether or not those would fit into Nolan's take on the Batman universe was another question and later, Hathaway hinted that there was more to her costume. Now we have another set of images, which offer a look at her complete Catwoman outfit in The Dark Knight Rises.
A sneaky set photo of Hathaway's stunt double previously revealed what looked to be Catwoman's mask and as expected, that actually was the case. New set photos from the set of The Dark Knight Rises reveal Anne Hathaway in her full Catwoman get-up, cat ears and mask included. In the photos, she's joined by Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Christian Bale as the titular hero and her new ride she acquired from Batman.
Cat ears aside, the more interesting information in these photos are the first look at Batman and Catwoman together, alongside Commissioner Gordon which seem to confirm that they will team together during the movie. Is it Batman who helps give Selina Kyle her "Catwoman" alias and the ears to go with it? Is it Batman who also provides her with those strange goggles we saw Hathaway wearing while riding the Batpod?
What do you think of Hathaway's true-to-form Catwoman costume now?
