Anne Hathaway as Catwoman: first pic

Catwoman

Warner Bros has released an official image of the Catwoman from next year's Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises.

Played by Anne Hathaway, the image tells us nothing of her role in the new movie, other than the fact she appears to have borrowed/stolen Batman's prized bike, she will don a tight black leather costume, and, erm, she is Catwoman.

No doubt we'll be drip fed more information leading up to its July 2012 release date, but we'd like to take this opportunity to discuss a couple of points.

First, should there even be a Catwoman in this film? Director Christopher Nolan has a habit of cramming his Batman films with as many characters from his back story as possible. 2005's Batman Begins had Ra's Al Ghul, The Scarecrow, Henri Ducard, Carmine Falcone and even Rutger Hauer's evil boss Earle, while The Dark Knight had the Joker, Two-Face, Lau, Maroni and the Scarecrow (again). Too many?

And more importantly, we noticed earlier this year that Bruce Wayne appears to have gotten himself a Lamborghini Aventador. Is this the correct choice for our favourite billionaire vigilante?

As always, leave your considered and insightful ramblings in the handy space provided below.
