Fans of The Dark Knight Rises Catwoman should rejoice, as it appears that TDKR’s Catwoman may show up in DC’s cinematic Universe, well as long as Christopher Nolan is involved. We are gearing towards a new wave of female led supehero films with the likes of Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel etc, where IGN asked Interstellar star Anne Hathaway if she’d be interested in reprising her role as Selina Kyle (or Calabrese) for her own Catwoman movie. She responded pretty positive towards the prospect of returning, she stated –
“I would be totally up for doing it, if Christopher Nolan was involved, For me, the thing that made doing that part particularly fun was that she existed in his Gotham. Without him I don’t think it would be the same thing.”
Though Anne Hathaway and Christopher Nolan reunited for Intersteller , it appears that Nolan working with Warner’s New DC Cinematic Universe appears to be over following on from Man of Steel, However when further asked, it doesn’t seem to have entirely put Anne Hathaway off returning as Catwoman. She goes on –
“Oh yeah, that’d be fun. I’d definitely love that. I want to play her again. I don’t know – this is just speculation, because I do think about it sometimes – I think she’s got an amazing backstory and it would be great to see her get her own film. But I don’t know – she is someone who… mystery serves her well so I don’t know what a whole film would do. But who knows?”
I briefly named dropped ‘Calabrese’ because currently in the New 52, Selina Kyle now goes by the name Selina Calabrese, new crime mob boss of Gotham city. All this coming from Catwoman’s new creative team of novelist Genevieve Valentine and artist Garry Brown. Spinning out of Batman Eternal, Selina Kyle finally takes responsibility of her family name, which her Father Rex ‘The Lion’ Calabrese was old crime boss.
For this new DC cinematic universe, it would be great to see Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman take on the streets of Gotham once again, but this time as Crime lord.
What are your thoughts of Anne Hathaway returning as Catwoman, Yay or Nay?
Do you think a Crime boss would work well for the new DC universe?
Also, how likely do you think a new Catwoman movie will happen and who would you cast?
Please share your thoughts.
