First of all, let me just say that since I like cats, and awesome chick villains, I do, of course, love Catwoman. However, we’ve already done Catwoman, and Michelle Pfeiffer was pretty excellent, I thought. Don’t even get me started on the divine Julie Newmar. However, Christopher Nolan has decided to stick with the multiple villain formula and solve the love interest problem at the same time. Yawn.
And playing the Cat? Anne Hathaway. Really?? I just don’t see it. She’s too … fresh-faced, or something. Hard to imagine her pulling off sultry at all. So color me not particularly excited, yet again.
At least I’ve never heard of Tom Hardy’s villain, who is called Bane. Basically, he’s got super strength thanks to weird experimental drugs which he needs to take every twelve hours via tubes in his brain, or something. So says the Wikipedia, anyway.
What do you think? Are you stoked for Anne Hathaway as Catwoman? (It just sounds wrong to me.) For Tom Hardy as a new and potentially interesting villain? For yet another Batman movie in general? I swear, I’m starting to feel like the supporting cast makes these movies … how can you go too terribly wrong with Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman involved? Ok, so I did hate The Dark Knight, but still. Michael Caine, people.
