Yes, the fucking character is in The Dark Knight Rises.
NEWS! ANNE HATHAWAY SAYS THE WORD “CATWOMAN!”
Bullshit. She's playing Harley Quinn and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is taking Heath Ledger's place as The Joker. I don't know why you people so goddamn arrogant that you can't see through the obvious disinformation campaign.
I mapped this whole thing out on the Superherohype MB's with my buddy, Darth_Joker666. We dropped some science on those fools on how this movie is gonna pan out.
I think folks not assuming Nolan would go full Catwoman based that on his films trying so hard to avoid certain comic book flourishes, and his 2 for 2 avoidance of the kinky, fetishistic side to the Batman mythos. And, to a lesser degree, the way he used up Two-Face's entire arc in the last 45 minutes of a movie, cuz that's how he rolls.
Scarecrow, Joker, and Two-Face have all been referred to by those names in the Nolan films. Why wouldn't Catwoman get to be, you know, Catwoman? If anything she is one of the most functional comic book characters around: her "tail" is a whip used both to swing around on and as a weapon, her claws cut through glass and pick locks, and her cat-eyes are goggles with night and zoom vision, etc. Plus, she's a CAT BURGLAR.
If she gets Nolan-ized at all, she'll be called The Cat like in her first appearance back in 1940.
It's a smokescreen! Hmmmm, maybe "Selina Kyle" is code.
Take her name...
Remove a few letters...
I knew it! Hathaway will be Harley Quinn!
