DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.

"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth

TDKR Designer Lindy Hemming on Hathaway’s Catwoman Costume

Empire Magazine has an interview with Anne Hathaway about the The Dark Knight Rises and it includes some insight by the costume designer on how they came up with Selina’s costume.

It ends with the previously seen footage of Bruce Wayne being told his “wife” had taken the care.

I have to say this ad increased my hopes that Hathaway was the right choice immensely and that she truly has “got” this role nailed.
