Spoilerific: About Catwoman’s Mask in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (Theory)
So remember those photos from yesterday that showed off Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman with the goggles off, and a sort of mask underneath? Turns out someone has a theory about what that mask really is, and it’s quite clever. Check it out after the jump.
That’s actually a rather good argument. Bruce did order a ton of masks in Batman Begins, so he easily has a few he could throw her way. If this is the case it would lend more credence to the theory that Selina isn’t actually playing a villainous role in the film, but more of an ally to Batman. It’s an idea I’m actually okay with; ending the trilogy with Bruce starting to develop his network of allies is a great way to jump off into the weekly television series Warner Bros. is looking to develop to keep the franchise going.
We’ll know more when the next trailer hits, I’m guessing. If not, we’ll have to wait until The Dark Knight Rises releases on July 20th, 2012.
