So her stunt woman who rides the Batpod is motorcross champion Jolene Van Vugt? We were all wondering her name.

There's a bio of her on Wikipedia if anyone is interested:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jolene_Van_Vugt

And this is what she looks like, for those of you who thought she was actually hotter than Anne Hathaway:

Blonde hair:




Brown hair:



I'm sorry, but Anne is way hotter than her stunt double. Jolene only looked hotter because she was made up like Anne. I wonder if Van Vugt hid that rather prominent mole with makeup or they used CGI to hide it? It didn't appear in her Catwoman photos on the bike.
There she is Nave(Torment) !

Some of you guys are acting like there has been only one variation of Catwoman.




Anne Hathaway looks much better with hair and without the cowl to be honest. She still looks like catwoman -like Julia Newmar.

You've seen Anne in a cowl?

Anyway, no one has ever disputed that Catwoman has had different looks over the years. I would, however, argue that the most memorable are those featuring a cowl and cat motif, as those yield stronger silhouettes and iconographies.

I'm also arguing against those who suggest that Catwoman sporting a cowl/cat motif cannot work in Nolan's universe.

No I don't think its either proto or spiritual Catwoman. We'll be getting all of her. Especially her role as a thief and a femme fatale -- sides to her that weren't adapted in Returns -- the reason everything is "toned down" is because this is essentially Batman: Ragnarok. Or Batman: The End. Or Batman: Holy Never-Ending-Battles-Finally-Ending Batman!

Selina Kyle is minimalist because the glorified, freak vs. freak world of Batman and the Joker and even Two-Face is lost and doesn't exist anymore. They're relics. Hence, it's sweeter that we don't see a new Bat-suit.

I also think this is gonna be a fully realized Catwoman. Probably moreso than BR(which I love, and think Pfeiffer is amazing in it. But Catwoman isn't a total psycho).

Ohhh, I like the comparisson of Anne's Catwoman to Julie Neumar's... nice! Makes me like the 'no-cowl' choice...

And, it'll be an easier to wear as a Halloween costume too... Unlike Batman, I don't think I'd be able to don the following in a nightclub... XD



But this one, much more breathable... :-D


And guys, Bane's prob easier than the cowl too...




I'm sos, I've been having fun with aTDKR app... I'm done now! ^.^

60's version is as memorable as well. Julia Newmar's catwoman is still in popculture. Domino mask & cat ears.

Cowl would be too much coverage especially without cleavage. Also Anne as beautiful she is, she doesn't have almost a perfect face to look beautiful under a cowl. I have seen her short haired photos and there are huge difference between usual Anne.

I think it was stylish choice considering actress and maybe storywise. (if she is that practical she might not want to carry a cowl with her.)

Can it be with cowl? Yeah. But cat ears do fine too.She looks like catwoman in movie but Nolan's style. Almost every character's outfit toned down in this series.

I would say to the general public, the Julie Newmar costume is more iconic and well known than some of these comic versions of the 90s onwards. The two most enduring images to the public are either Julie Newmar or Michelle Pfieffer, but the Newmar version has been around longer.

It's like the difference between the Adam West Batman and the Burton Batman or Nolan Batman. The Burton Batman is known and is in the public consciousness, but the Adam West Batman has just been around so long that people are extremely familiar with that. As for the Nolan Batman, I don't know how iconic that actually is to the general public. I certainly don't think it's as aesthetically pleasing as Keaton's suit IMO.

Anne definitely fills out the costume better than the mannequin.

It's possible. But are people looking at the wrong woman now come to think of it? If you look to the very right of the picture, doesn't that woman look similar to the picture of Maxine Whittaker that you posted? She has the same sort of tough expression, nose, eyebrows and mouth.

The woman in the centre of the picture might not even be a stunt woman but could be just carrying some props. She could even be a makeup artist/ costume department.

^ It's possible she's just part of the crew. Even that domino mask she's holding clearly isn't the same Catwoman domino mask. Hmmm...
