New Catwoman featurette from The Dark Knight Rises: watch now

The Dark Knight Rises has released another featurette from the DVD’s additional material, this time focusing upon Anne Hathaway’s remarkable performance as Catwoman.

By all accounts, Hathaway trained remarkably hard to get Selina Kyle’s fighting style down to a fine art, always keeping in mind that her movements should retain a hint of femininity amid all the limb-snapping.

Chris Nolan himself reveals that he spoke with the stuntmen involved as to how to make the fight scenes appear more realistic, although his task was simplified no end by the sheer number of hours Hathaway ploughed into her combat training.

Take a look at the featurette, below…



For our money, Hathaway’s performance was one of the film’s greatest triumphs. In the same way as The Dark Knight was illuminated by the Joker’s every appearance, so does The Dark Knight Rises click up a gear whenever Selina Kyle is on screen.

Get ready to gorge yourself on a host of additional extras when The Dark Knight Rises is released on DVD and Blu-ray on 3 December 2012.
