Casting Hathaway in the role of Catwoman for me is a cross between two well known actresses that had the roll before her, Julie Newmar and Lee Meriwether. There seem to be similar likeness to both actress which is more so then the images of Selina Kyle in the comics for me.
My choice would have been the actress from V the mini series, but then I'm not a casting director so I'll respect the choice given. Bane on the other hand I'm going to really enjoy in TDKR just for the fact I know he won't be grunting and moaning like in Joel Schumacher's Batman & Robin.
First off great topic! David Goyer's version of blade I would had love to see that story made into a movie! I can't understand why Marvel don't have faith in their darker heroes to hold their own weight at the box office without feeling they have to please the 12 and under crowd.
They've made the very same mistake with Daredevil, Elecktra, Ghost Rider, and Punisher, those movies I've mention should be G or R rated movies, P-13 will not do these characters justice in my opinion!
As soon as people heard Seth was taking this role of GH the anticipation for this movie got dropped like a hot patato. I remember quite a few comments here on ComicVine and other comic book movie related sites that expressed a big disappointment.
Seth is a great actor well known for his comedy roles, and yes it will be hard to take him serious in a role like Green Hornet, but remember this, Robin Williams?(Insomnia, One Hour Photo) He turned out to be a great actor in some serious roles and no one ever thought he could pull it off.
I'll give Seth a chance but he has only one chance in a role like this because it could mean disaster for anything else outside of the comedy realm for him. Good luck Seth!
