Anne Hathaway Says She Would Be Game For A Catwoman Movie

The last time we got a Catwoman solo movie it was an utter disaster. Directed by Pitof and released in 2004, the film had Halle Berry in a tight leather outfit going for it, but absolutely nothing else. Critics absolutely tore the movie apart and it didn't even have the benefit of being successful, making only $82 million internationally on a $100 million budget. Fortunately, the DC Comics character very recently got some redemption on the big screen in the form of Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises. There has already been some suggestion by Christopher Nolan that Hathaway's version of the character could hold her own movie, but would the actress be up for it as well?

According to Digital Spy, the answer is yes. The site recently had the chance to speak with Hathaway at a press junket and while she did confirm that she would be interested in playing the character again, she did have a caveat. "I think it would be lovely to see more of her but only if it's with the right people," Hathaway said. "She lives in this Gotham City and so it would have to be established by the people who have made this Gotham City. For me, at least." Basically, it sounds like she's saying that it would have to be Christopher or Jonah Nolan or David S. Goyer taking the character through another tour of the famed comic book city, and we already know that Christopher is completely done.

But this is all just speculation anyway. There have been no rumors coming from Warner Bros., and the studio is probably too busy trying to figure out the future of the Batman franchise to worry about side-characters right now. Then again, perhaps that could be their exit strategy...
