The LATimes currently has an article on Anne Hathaway in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” in which they toss out a pretty big POTENTIAL SPOILER (as in, in the very first paragraph of the article). Now I don’t really know the context behind this particular scene that the article describes, but it certainly sheds a whole new light on Hathaway’s Selina Kyle and her relationship with a certain hulking villain in Nolan’s last Batman film.
From the article:
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.
The rest of the article is just about how great Hathaway is and blah blah blah.
So, what do you think? Is Selina Kyle aka Catwoman actually in league with Tom Hardy’s Bane? It sure sounds like it from the description above. Then again, being the wily thief that she is, she could be playing an angle.
