The Devil Wears Prada star is the latest actress to play the Caped Crusader’s feline nemesis, following in the footsteps of Julie Newmar, Eartha Kitt and Michelle Pfeiffer – and Nolan was bowled over by her scenes.
He tells Access Hollywood, “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 things she does in those heels is not to be taken lightly.
“She’s an incredible character and we’re very excited to see her and hopefully we’ll leave people wanting more.”
Nolan will step away from the franchise after the blockbuster’s upcoming release, but he is adamant Hathaway should star in a Catwoman spin-off, adding, “I certainly think she deserves it, she’s incredible.”
