New ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Catwoman pictures leaked online

Anne Hathaway's outfit evolves ears

A fresh batch of pictures from the set of The Dark Knight Rises has leaked online showing Anne Hathaway in full Catwoman costume.

The images show the evolution of the outfit, originally presented in an official picture on the Dark Knight Rises website, from a more subtle ‘cat-burglar’ ensemble to the pointy eared, full leather look as seen above.

The selection of pictures, which you can see more of at ComingSoon, also feature Christian Bale in full Batman outfit and Gary Oldman, returning as Commissioner Gordon.

In one photo, Bale and Hathaway can be seen enjoying a joke as the crew sets up the next shot.

The first batch of pictures of the new Catwoman costume provoked some grumblings amongst fans with Hathaway defending the first look as “only about a tenth of what the suit can do”.

Earlier this month, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, a new addition to the Batman Universe, told fans to trust Nolan and to not seek out too many spoilers about the forthcoming film.

The Dark Knight Rises is due for release on July 20, 2012.
