My only question can she do for Catwoman what the late Ledger did for the Joker - I'm looking for an iconic moment watching ahah this IS Catwoman. I want to see her put Eartha Kit for me the best Catwoman back to the litterbox.
I'm not sure any character in Batman can be incarnated in the way Ledger became
the joker. To be honest it was an incredible performance, it was intense and brilliant, and word is that on the set when he was doing it, even then people were blown away by how he brought it to life.
That said, Nolan is an incredible film maker. Memento was great, and I loved Inception. More than that, he understands Batman on an incredibly deep level. He get
s Batman. And when you stop to Analyze it, Batman is a very complex character. Emotionally, mentally and in the range of his abilities from martial arts, to detective skills, to his drive, to his gadgets etc. Batman himself has a lot of components and his mythos, his enemies, his allies and Gotham... It's incredibly rich stuff developed over decades of comics and when it's done right, it's very compelling stuff.
Nolan has mastered putting it on the screen brilliantly, not retelling the same exact stories from comics or cartoons, but telling a new story while Mastering the Characters and aspects of Batman and the Batman mythos in a very deep way.
Put it simply, Nolan is a Batman Genius. I balked when I heard he picked Ledger as the Joker. I ate my words happily watching that movie. TDK was wonderful from moment one til the credits rolled. Batman Begins was also wonderful, great movie that really built the foundation for an incredible movie franchise here.
I'm unsure about Hardy for Bane or Hatheway as Catwoman. I like both performers a lot and Hateway is gorgeous. However even if I have my doubts, I know the movie will be top notch and if anyone can get these two, to give top notch performances in these characters, It's Christopher Nolan.
In Nolan we trust.
