Christopher Nolan has said he’s done with Gotham’s iconic characters now that “The Dark Knight Rises” is done, but the director thinks Anne Hathaway should continue on with the role of Catwoman – but is the actress ready to suit up again as the sexy Selina Kyle?
Access Hollywood’s Michelle Beadle sat down with Anne at the junket for her latest movie, “Les Miserables,” where we asked the actress about possibly playing the Batman role again.
“No one’s talked to me about it,” Anne said when asked about a possible spin-off.
“I would love it. I actually, it’s so embarrassing, I was at a press Q & A thing the other night for a screening of ‘The Dark Knight,’ and the moderator asked me, ‘So what was it like to say goodbye to the character?’ And I burst into tears, because I miss her,” the 30-year-old said. “It just makes me cry. I miss her. I love Selena so much and I love her presence in my life and getting to… I’m crying again.”
Adding, “So assuming there was enough Kleenex in the world, I would love to do a spin-off.”
“Anne is incredibly precise and articulate about the psychology of the character. She’s really built it from the ground up, it’s just a delight to watch her perform,” the director told Access at the time. “The things she does in those heels is not to be taken lightly.
The director was quick to squash any notion that he would helm a Catwoman spinoff, but said he thinks Anne should continue on.
“For me, Gotham and these characters, I’m done. I’ve told our story and I’m moving on,” he continued, explaining that he’d love to see Anne play the character again under another director’s guidance. “I certainly think she deserves it, she’s incredible.”
