    Yep, all of that was great. And Batman and Catwoman teaming up was particularly awesome. I think it's the closest thing we've gotten so far to a superhero team up in the Nolan universe. I wish he had allowed that before with a proper Robin character, as we could've had similar scenes with Batman in one vehicle and Robin in another like we had with Batman in the Bat and Catwoman on the Batpod.

    And the final scene of Bruce and Selina together was wonderful. Of all the women too. I'm sure the general audience usually perceive Catwoman as a villain, so it would've shaken their whole view to see Batman and Catwoman ending up together as a couple.

    Given the bad writing on Tatelia, I'm still curious if most of the credit for Selina's (much, much better) writing should go to Chris or Jonah. I'm leaning towards Jonah since he was the one who heavily pushed for Selina to even be in the movie.

    I think Jonah is most responsible for Selina. He "defended" her inclusion, so maybe he knew how make it work in the context of the movies. If I remember correct, he wrote the first draft of the script, so, to me, maybe Chris almost didn't changed her parts.

    I just wish Jonah had written more scenes of Selina. I personally would like him to write a whole spin-off or prequel movie for Anne's Catwoman.

    Catwoman is the female version of Batman, so yeah, it was great to see them team up (“take me to Bane” – batpod chase finale) and ultimately settle down. I especially wanted the latter. But Bruce better not think he can tame Selina. She’s always going to be a naughty girl one way or another. Not that Bruce is going to mind, he clearly gets a thrill out of it.

    Selina seemed like she always had hero worship for Batman, so once Bane revealed him it was only matter of time. Bruce was more intrigued since he'd never faced such a capable woman before, and he was more interested in reforming her or being her mentor of sorts, but I don't think he had any actual romantic feelings for her until she came back for him.

    Seriously these type of pic should've been released back at the beginning of marketing . Warner Bros. marketing dropped the ball in the promoting for TDKR compered to that of TDK.

    I fully agree that WB dropped the ball in a big way with marketing that CW was in this film. So many amazing pictures have surfaced which would've really stirred up peoples hype for her, but instead we had to wait until we got the posters and banners, which were ok but nothing phenomenal.

    It's the same thing for Batman. The pics being released now are so much better than the promo stuff we got before. It's worse for CW though. Compare these pics now with that first pic we got. :dry:

    The pics we got weren't terrible but that being said, these new pics are just amazing.

    Yeah. I think while the attraction and interest is mutual (even before the betrayal), during the time he came back, Selina is more concerned with the man while Bruce is still more concerned with saving the city.


    I wonder if there are still more BB, TDK, and TDKR pics that they are saving for next year's Ultimate trilogy edition. I sure hope so!

    I love her character so much. Proof positive that Nolan can do a great leading female character when he really tries.

    Heh, he actually didn't even want Catwoman in the movie. You should be thanking Jonah for that.

    Yeah I think Jonah deserves more credit for CW.

    I thank Jonah for convincing him to use her, but it's Nolan who brought her to life by casting Anne, and directing her.

    Credit where it's due.

    Catwoman should have been a huge driving force in the marketing of this film...

    In that regard, the character was wasted.

    I never once felt I was watching Catwoman. I'm sorry, but the costume really matters.

    I've actually grown to love the costume and can't imagine it any other way...

    They definitely went in the right direction.

    Definitely. The look is ingraining itself into the consciousness of people. The long hair, domino mask and goggles look right. The new pics are fabulous and bring the character to life all over again.
