The Dark Knight Rises’ Bonus Features Clip Highlights Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle

Flicks And Bits:
With the home video release of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ on horizon, clips from the films Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download bonus features have been arriving online thick and fast. The latest clip spotlights Anne Hathaway’s portrayal as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, with commentary from producer Emma Thomas, director/writer/producer Christopher Nolan, stunt co-ordinator Tom Struther, fight arranger Buster Reeves, and Hathaway herself. One of my favourite ingredients of Nolan’s third and final Batman movie was undoubtedly Hathaway’s Selina Kyle/Catwoman. I thought she brought mischief, humour and humanity to ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in abundance as this mysterious cat burglar desperate for a fresh start. ’The Dark Knight Rises’ is available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download from December 3rd in the UK and December 4th in the US.

calis3498d ago

What about your long lost cousin whom you never met but coincidentally came across on the interwebs Looking for a gift?

I thought the film was mediocre, nice cinematography, decent acting but a boring story and characters. it felt like nolan was trying not to make a batman film, he seemed more interested in those long shots of the city and the starkness of it.

Simon_Brezhnev3498d ago

Yeah i didnt like the movie one bit. Dark Knight Returns Part 1 is way better than this movie.

DivineHand1253498d ago (Edited 3498d ago )

I agree.I saw The Dark Knight Returns part 1 before this and i can tell you that The Dark Knight Returns part 1 is 10x better than this movie.

Problems i found with the Dark Knight Rises:

1) The Bane in this movie was nothing like the Bane we all know. This bane was a regular man while the bane we know from batman was big, very muscular, breath fumes to maintain form and poison ivy's lacky.

2) Poor choice of actress for cat woman. I have nothing against Anne Hathaway but after seeing many of her the films she stars in over the years i just couldn't picture her as Catwoman. She looked too innocent and not seductive enough.

3) Batman gave her a free pass for no reason at all. she stole from him, put him send him into a trap that could have cost him his life(Reason he survived was because of the stupid bad guy ideology of leaving the hero somewhere to suffer then go about their business instead of killing him) also her actions put the whole city in danger of being blown off the face of the planet. The movie lasted over 2 hrs and they couldn't even spend 5 minutes to explain why she does what she does. They only explaination was that she had a complicated past(Isn't that the same with 99% of the criminals he hunts down).

4) Plot had allot of flaws. The Bad guys took over the city for months and threaten to blow it up if anyone enters or leaves. You mean to tell me they couldn't have sneaked in a military special forces team at night like they do in call of duty to take back the city from the terrorist. Also how did thousands of cops stay alive in a caved in sewer during all that time.
There were also times where catwoman was handling guys twice her weight and size with her very slim non muscular body like they were stuffed animals. Makes no sense at all.

I also have complaints about the last scene of the movie but don't want to spoil it for those that have not seen it yet. Just know that it makes no sense

@DivineHand125, the problem you bring up about Bane is all shades of wrong. He isn't supposed to be a lacky. Yeah you might know him more as that from Batman and Robin but if you knew anything about Batman whatsoever you'd know the Bane in this film was closer to the source material, comic books films are nearly always better when they stick to the source that's pretty much fact.

stuntman_mike3498d ago

I prefer the bane of the comics (or more recently from the arkham asylum game) to this bane. for one I couldn't stand his voice he sounded like a camp professor Layton. also leaving him in that prison instead of killing him was pathetic, just like the old batman TV series they left him in a room with a elaborate trap that you knew he would escape from lol.

I still think Christian Bale is a terrible batman, I couldn't understand him most of the time he sounded like a dog with a sore throat.

there's a bit at the end of the film where batman and bane square off with one another outside the town hall, it was supposed to be a serious moment but I cracked up at the awful accents, bane sounding like doctor evil and batman growling like a dog with halitosis lol.

"and poison ivy's lacky. "

I'm sorry, what?

"You mean to tell me they couldn't have sneaked in a military special forces team at night like they do in call of duty to take back the city from the terrorist."

Really? Call of Duty is your reference point as to why they could do it?

"There were also times where catwoman was handling guys twice her weight and size with her very slim non muscular body"

This makes no sense.

I didn't particularly like The Dark Knight but I loved the other two films so each to his own I guess...

Simon_Brezhnev3498d ago

Yeah i like the other 2 films too. It seems like they toned down a lot of stuff. I dont recall seeing any blood in Dark Knight Rises. I felt like it was rated PG instead of PG-13.

KwietStorm_BLM3498d ago


Did you just reference that abysmal and disrespectful Batman and Robin flick, and then Call of Duty? Lmao are you trying to nullify your opinion? The Bane in Dark Knight Rises may not have been on Venom, but he was the closest representation to the comic book Bane that there ever has been. The genius strategist and combat expert, the traps all over the city to wear down the Bat, springing loose the criminals, blowing up the bridges, the League of Shadows, etc. THIS is Bane. Not just a giant dummy with green pipes. Nolan clearly did his homework and did his best to stick to the Knightfall storyline. I suggest you follow suit.

aDDicteD3495d ago

dark knight rises is a great movie with a throwback at "knightfall" storyline and "dark knight returns" storyline. the story was great, the plot was clever. Bane was portrayed very properly and is very utilized and copied what he did in the comics like the back breaker, freeing inmates in prison, being linked to talia..the same goes for catwoman as well she was portrayed perfectly as well but more screentime would be more satisfying. for a movie introducing bane, catwoman, talia and robin..2 hours and 45 min is not enough. anne hathaway even if i think her character had not enough screentime..she stole every scene she had perfectly.
