Readers Respond: Will Anne Hathaway Make a Good Catwoman?

the cat's meow?
Anne Hathaway Films

It was announced back in January that the usual rom-com queen Anne Hathaway would step into the shoes (paws?) of Catwoman for the upcoming Batman flick The Dark Knight rises, and on Friday we got a first look at Anne in the infamous suit.

While some Celebuzz staffers think that Anne will kill it as Selina Kyle, others weren't entirely convinced.

So we decided to take the debate to Facebook to see what you guys, our faithful readers, had to say about Anne as Catwoman.

While the post itself on Facebook received nearly 100 likes, some people were not feeling Anne as Catwoman, with many saying they would like to see Angelina Jolie in the role.

Shannon N. said: "Not sure - Catwoman is usually very sexy - I really can't see Anne being sexy. She's mostly too awkward."

Erick repeated the sentiment, but did add give Anne props on her acting chops.

"She is hot but she doesn't has the vibe of hotness, sexiness, and mostly the femme fatale style...guess Angelina would had fit better into the role but still Anne is a great actress....we'll see how does it go...."
There were plenty of people that think Anne will make a fab Catwoman, and Jennifer P. made a great point, saying:
"I think Anne Hathaway could do just about anything. I'm finding as I watch her work, she's become a very versatile actress. I'm not going to compare her to past Catwomen. Each actress put her own stamp on that role, but I'm looking forward to it. I really like Anne. Can't wait to see how she does this!"
Lots of great feedback, but we could always use more! Cast your vote in the poll above to give your two cents about Anne as Catwoman.

    No offense to annoye at all but I do not understand the whole bigger-than-your-face nerd glasses thing . it makes me sad people are covering their pretty faces . But I do <3 the confidence of statement makers like Anne.

    I love how everyone just says "She'll make a great Catwoman, look at Heath Ledger, no one thought he could pull off the Joker." Let me first off say okay, we all know the world wants to suck the Nolan brothers off for creating Heath Ledger's Joker, but her costume is shit. It's still okay to criticize, if a lot of people voice there opinion it allows directors and producers to know what to try better at in the future. My biggest fault with the new Batman movies is the fact that so many key villians get so little screen time. It's just, oh these guys are bad. I'm talking specifically about Scarecrow and Two Face. Yes they're bad, but we never got to see just how crazy they were. We got a five minute c@ck tease. As someone above me said, Anne can probably pull it off, but the costume makes me cringe. Same with Bane. Uhg! Even Batman. Whoever comes up with these costume designs needs to be shot. The characters that did look cool: Joker, Scarecrow (loosely. It wasn't amazing, but pretty good,) and Two Face was pretty cool.

    Will she make a good catwoman!? Did anyone actually believe that Heath Ledger would make a good Joker? No, everyone thought Heath as the Joker was the worst casting choice of all time and look how that ended up being. It's not Anne's fault that she was type-casted as the rom-con queen , but she embraced it anyway. Given the opportunity to break into a new role as Catwoman of all characters will show the world that she has RANGE. As far as not being sexy, that's just ludicrous, she oozes sexiness.

    Chris Nolan isn't "being public" on purpose. It's not his fault that they're filming in the middle of a city. It's not about bein "public", it's about filming what they need to film to make a heck of movie like we all know it'll be. They've been filming since the beginning of May and we haven't seen any pictures until this past week.

    Anne Hathaway is the perfect Catwoman, I'm just not sure about whether her costume is great, or at least her mask doesn't seem to be. But of course she'll be a great Catwoman, probably the best we've ever seen.

    What I don't get is why the director is being so public with shooting. Quite unusual of him.

    I think Anne will do a good job. She's definately good looking enough to pull it off and she's a good actress. Plus let's not forget, not everyone was convinced that Heath Ledger would be a good choice to play the Joker and look how that turned out...
