SupermanTV.net Forum / Superman / DC Comics / Batman / Key 'Dark Knight Rises' Scene Revealed

Posted:  30 Dec 2011 02:13
Sunday's Los Angeles Times will include one of the very first published set visit reports and moments ago their website posted a preview of the story, which focuses on Anne Hathaway's incarnation of Catwoman.

"What's come before doesn't limit or even affect this new version," the Oscar nominee says. "It doesn't affect me because each Catwoman – and this is true in the comics as well – 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."

And the reality of Anne's ferocious feline stems from Batman creator Bob Kane's original inspiration for Catwoman: screen siren Hedy Lamarr.

"I know this sounds odd, but her breathing is extraordinary," Hathaway said of the Golden Age star. "She takes these long, deep, languid breaths and exhales slowly. There's a shot of her in [the 1933 film] Ecstasy exhaling a cigarette and I took probably five breaths during her one exhale. So I started working on my breathing a lot."

There's also much talk about Anne's casting and costume throughout the article, but my favorite portion features the reporter describing, in detail, a key scene he witnessed the cast filming. I've reproduced the whole passage for you below, but warning, SPOILERS!

Gotham City is a war zone. A ruthless madman named Bane has ripped away any sense of security and the citizens, haggard and clutching suitcases with refugee anxiety, sit behind barbed wire waiting to see what will blow up next. A hooded prisoner is dragged in – it's Bruce Wayne, one of Gotham's most famous faces – but the eyes of the crowd go instead to the woman in black standing at the top of the staircase.

"Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane needs these guys himself," says sultry Selina Kyle, played here by actress Anne Hathaway, navigating the steps with stiletto heels that, on closer inspection, turn out to have serrated edges capable of leaving nasty claw marks in a fight. She also wears high-tech goggles that, when not in use, flip up and resemble feline ears.

For any more, you'll have to wait and read the article!

We tend to think sometimes that comic characters are new and updated for this generation but sometimes they tend to mix characteristics more from the very early days to get this new gritty attitude. At least that's what they say. I know the writers of Action Comics said they were trying to make Superman more like his gritty old days too.
