It was exciting to hear the news yesterday, that Christopher Nolan, for his next film in his Batman series, was casting Tom Hardy. But it was also news that Anne Hathaway was going to be the new Catwoman. Since Hathaway will host the 83rd Academy Awards, one cannot help but mind meld the three together somehow.
The general consensus on Twitter seemed to be, regarding Hathaway, that fans were prepared to trust that Christopher Nolan knew what he was doing.
Catwoman is a difficult icon to topple, but apparently everyone said the same thing about Heath Ledger who then went on to win a posthumous Oscar for playing the Joker.
Whatever Nolan is thinking with Hathaway, there will be that same genius twist on a character. Then again, there aren’t many Heath Ledgers around. My personal preference has been Michelle Pfeiffer’s take on the felicon. I would have been totally down with Marion Cotillard. But What think you?
