oh well.......she is no EVA GREEN.....i wanted her to play catwoman.........BUT hathaway is a decent american actress and she can play dark and gritty well.........(seethe movie  havoc) 
 
what i am mostly worried about is nolan and how he will pull of a strong/sexy and independent  woman with his bad track record i.e rachel dawes a la Maggie G and Katie.......uuuggggghhhhhhhh

The only concern I have is that she does not seem athletic enough for me.  Hathaway is one of my favorite actresses right now and certainly has the chops for that. I do not see her going toe to toe with anyone, however.  That and the aforementioned history of Nolan's women in this series.

I dont think so. So far she's about the only person cast I'm not crazy for. I just cant get the image of her in Princess Diaries out of my head. I know that was years ago and she's not a horrible actress but as far as her being able to portray a convincing Catwoman, I'm not sold.

She's a good actress. I have faith she can do it right.

I wasn't so sure Christian Bale could pull off Bruce Wayne/Batman. I believe Nolan can make anyone seem a better actor. After all, I couldn't stand Leo till Inception.

I think she'll do no worse than Bale does Batman.

I think she'll do a fantastic job she's a good actress and she even shares similar facial features with Selina. It's the perfect casting I say.

Yup, anybody who disagrees should watch her in "Havoc"

I don't know if Hathaway can pull it off. I fell for the Ledger hype and was disappointed.

When I first heard the casting I was pretty cynical... actually I was downright annoyed, I had a good rant about it at the time.

HOWEVER!

After watching the trailer about 15 bazillion times there is one glimmer of hope...

It's the line "There's a storm coming, Mr. Wayne.... when it hits, you're all going to wonder how you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us."

There's an edge in her delivery that I like, there's a bite in her voice, a menacing sort of purr and I have no doubt that Nolan worked her like a dog (or er cat?) during shooting.

I have no doubt for Ms Hathaway it's a seriously challenging role but if her performance is consistent with the delivery of that one line throughout the rest of the movie, it might just turn out to be pretty damn good.

We shall find out.

Yes. I have faith in Nolan, he chose Anne Hathaway over everyone else for a reason.

Olive Wilde

I think Anne will make a -good- catwoman, but Halle Berry did great. She portrayed her personality perfectly. I would rather have Halle again as Catwoman, but I still think Anne won't be a let down though.

She wouldn't have been any good either.She should stick to doing whatever Doctor Greg House tells her to do.

Outside my thoughts, I think a lot of the low expectations for her in this role, and there are many, may actually help her to surprise the audience at large because at the least all she has to do is exceed those low expectations. And actress with high expectations for their performance to be incredible would actually have a harder time pulling off a positive review in the overall filmgoers conclusion do to having more intricate demands placed against them.

Not in the costume they gave her .

They should at least cut her hair .

She will be the best actor in the film.

#73 Posted by RoboShark (1208 posts) - - Show Bio

I was skeptical, what I saw of her briefly in the trailer with Bale was great.

#74 Posted by jsphsmth (1136 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes, but more importantly, she can fill out the Catwoman costume purr-fectly.

Too late fellows, she already pulled it off nicely.

She was amazing in Havoc even with being naked in that movie, she certainly knows how to act. She was outstanding as Selina Kyle here.

Havoc was a terrible movie and her body is disgusting. She looks 13.

Really? Many people thought that honor belonged to Cotilliard, especially in that awful

death scene. Here it is again in case you need a reminder
