When Warner Bros. officially announced that Anne Hathaway would be joining Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, they made the odd choice of referring to her character only as “Selina Kyle” and not Kyle’s more famous alter-ego, Catwoman. This led to speculation that Catwoman may be held for future movies (even though Nolan has stated that TDKR is his last Batman movie).
But now, for anyone that had the slightest fear that Catwoman wouldn’t be in The Dark Knight Rises, you can put that fear to rest. Speaking on Oprah’s post-Oscar special, Hathaway refers to her TDKR role only as “Catwoman” and her enthusiasm about getting the part. Hit the jump to check out the video. The Dark Knight Rises is set to open on July 20, 2012.
