Batman fans were very divided after Warner Bros released the first official image of Hathaway in costume for director Chris Nolan's upcoming project, and the actress has a few choice word for detractors.
The Dark Knight Rises is the highly anticipated final installment of Warner Bros and DC Entertainment's new Batman film franchise. Christopher Nolan has returned to direct the film from a screenplay he wrote with Jonathan Nolan, from a story by himself and David S. Goyer. Details about the film's storyline are scarce, but it has already been established that one of villains set to take on the Batman (Christian Bale) will be the powerhouse known as Bane (Tom Hardy). Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway), better known to comics fans as Catwoman, will also have a central role in the movie. The will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
The first image of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman was released online last week [pictured to the right] and many Batman film fans were scratching their heads at the significant changes made to the costume. MTV recently caught up with Hathaway, who offered her take on the reaction:
"I was not going to admit it: I asked someone to send me a few reactions [to the photo]... and I happen to know that MTV's reaction was 'meh.'"
"What I am happy to say is, if you didn't like the photo, you only see about a 10th of what that suit can do. And if you did like the photo, you have excellent taste."
