Gotham City Turned Into a War Zone

LA Time has a pretty extensive write up on The Dark Knight Rises with Anne Hathaway as their interviewee. This is the only section of the LA Times that I actually like. In it, they talk about Bane unleashing chaos in Gotham city and crippling the whole security of the city. Here’s a synopsis of the interview. You can read the entire article on the LA Times website. Not sure what type of personality Catwoman is supposed to be in this film, but it sounds like she and Bane is in cahoots. Regardless, to date, Michelle Pfiefer is the sexiest Catwoman of them all. Lets hope Anne Hathaway can come close, that is, if the script allowed her to be that sexy feline that Michelle Pfiefer was.

Gotham City is a war zone. A ruthless madman named Bane has ripped away any sense of security and the citizens, haggard and clutching suitcases with refugee anxiety, sit behind barbed wire waiting to see what will blow up next. A hooded prisoner is dragged in – it’s Bruce Wayne, one of Gotham’s most famous faces – but the eyes of the crowd go instead to the woman in black standing at the top of the staircase.

“Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane needs these guys himself,” says sultry Selina Kyle, played here by actress Anne Hathaway, navigating the steps with stiletto heels that, on closer inspection, turn out to have serrated edges capable of leaving nasty claw marks in a fight. She also wears high-tech goggles that, when not in use, flip up and resemble feline ears.

Meet the new Catwoman — but don’t expect her to do any purring this time around. “I love the costume,” Hathaway said last summer on the set of “The Dark Knight Rises,” after shooting that scene for the film. “I love the costume because everything has a purpose, nothing is in place for fantasy’s sake, and that’s the case with everything in Christopher Nolan’s Gotham City.”
