No doubt some Batman fans will have trouble accommodating Anne Hathaway into the Dark Knight mythos given Michelle Pfeiffer's memorable performance as Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman, in 1992's 'Batman Returns'. (Let's not mention Halle Berry, shall we?) But we're going to give Hathaway and director Christopher Nolan the benefit of the doubt on this one, even if some online trolls disparaged her Lindy Hemming-designed costume. Kyle plays a thief who insinuates herself into Bruce Wayne's (Christian Bale) world and becomes an ally when the terrorist Bane (Tom Hardy) subjugates Gotham. Nolan has described Selina as 'a grifter, a classic movie femme fatale.'
