Recent news and anonymous tips have suggested that “awesome hi-tech burgler” may not be Catwoman’s only night job.
The people over at Batman-News.com were sent a tip from an anonymous source in June claiming that they had exclusive information about the character of Selina Kyle (Catwoman) in The Dark Knight Rises.
Catwoman is apparently one of the most well written characters we’ve seen in these movies so far and she could potentially steal the show the way Heath Ledger did last time. She does some cool stuff in the movie like jumping out of windows and stealing the Batpod. Her back story is that she has a history of abuse and works as a stripper and is also a pickpocket.
So, naturally because it was an anonymous tip featuring unverified information they threw it in the “probably not legit” pile.
Then this picture was released.
So, unless it was the world’s luckiest guess, it seems that this anonymous tipster may know a little more than we previously thought.
To be fair, making Selina a stripper would be following in the footsteps of Frank Miller’s Year One which Nolan admits had some influence on the film, so this may in fact end up being absolutely true.
It’s exciting to hear that her character is well-written (although we wouldn’t expect anything less from Nolan) and it seems that we might get a deeper and more emotionally compromised Catwoman than we’re used to seeing if the tip is accurate.
For the time being, don’t forget to take plenty of salt and check back with us for more Dark Knight Rises updates. We will have plenty more in the next couple of weeks.
