First official look at Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Fans will have to wait for the Catwoman costume, but her alter-ego Selina Kyle has been revealed

The first official picture of Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises has been unveiled by the film-makers.

The official website, has a fullscreen shot of Hathaway as Selina Kyle riding a very familiar vehicle from the previous Batman film.

While the makers, and the actress, are keeping silent on how and when the anti-heroine will undergo the full transformation into Catwoman, the get-up Hathaway is sporting looks particularly ‘cat burglar-esque’.

Hathaway is one of a host of new faces in the Batman cast, including many stars from Christopher Nolan‘s previous film Inception, including Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy as Bane.

The official image comes in the same week that a host of fan taken pictures and videos hit the internet.

The shoot, which is one of the most anticipated productions in recent memory, is currently underway in Pittsburgh. The makers were welcomed to the city with a projected Bat Symbol.

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