I think Anne Hathaway is the hottest thing in Hollywood right now based upon my personal preferences for feminine looks.
She is also an extemely talented and versatile actress who has done a lot of great roles.
I have every confidence that she will do the part justice. The interviews I've read indicate she loves the role and is going to extremes to look the part.

How about we actually watch the movie before judging her performance? I was really uncertain about Heath Ledger and yet his INTERPRETATION of the Joker won me over. Was he the comics Joker...no, but he created a Joker suitable for that Batman setting.
I fully expect Anne Hathaway to do the same thing here. Just remember she is not playing Selina as the comics verse, but as what Nolan needs for his storyline.
If we really want to start a discussion on how Catwoman should look, it starts and ends with Julie Newmar...1966 vintage!
Who thought "Hey, Heath Ledger will put forth a once in a generation dramatic performance"? I think the only good movie he was in before The Dark Knight was Monsters Ball, and he died at the end of the first act.
Animal Man, Green Arrow, Batman and Robin, Batgirl, Supergirl, Earth 2, Worlds Finest, Wonder Woman, The Movement
Anne Hathaway is a much better actress than the other female leads in my opinion. Katie Holmes and Magie Gylenthal certainly aren't aren't as talented and versatile.
You also have to consider that they needed an actress with a certain look and age. Who else better fits into that mold?
I'm actually kind of glad some people have low expectations for her because I think they will be praising her once they see her performance.
Hathaway just isn't my cup of tea. I don't find her particularly attractive which makes her playing a typically sexy femme fatale awkward. Making it worse is how bad the costume looks to me. A wet suit with razor blade heels, a slicked back mullet like hair style, and a domino mask/night vision goggles. I know it's supposed to be a throw back to the Julie Newmar days, but really Catwoman's current costume in comics is nearly tailor made to be easily adapted to the big screen and seems more sensible for a thief in trying to conceal their identity, but who knows if that's what her role is exactly in this movie. As for her acting, she's a more than capable actress from what I've seen her in (not much), so I'm sure she won't have me cringing during the movie for the most part. I agree with what NewMutant said and really believe Marion Cotillard would have been better suited for the role.
"My former associate has a thing for bats? You took up a pipe to quit smoking cigarettes? Wait, howzabout - holy mistaken identity!"
...And does Mr. Goddanm Batman says so much as ''Thanks''? OF COURSE not. That'd hardly be GRIM AND GRITTY, would it?
-DKU's Jim Gordon.
cute or not i think she absolutly has the face of catwoman almost exactly (Note: my vision of catwomans face is ones drawn by adam hudges and gillium march)
and to ANYONE who claims she isnt hot or sexy enought to play catwoman
Yeah Good Luck With that

I love Anne Hathaway and I watch most anything she does but when I heard she had been cast as Selina/Catwoman I wasn't the most excited about it.
Until, I saw her in Love and Other Drugs with Jake Gyllenhaal. There is a moment where she is wearing leggings and she starts to stretch... it only lasts a few seconds but at that moment the first thing that came to my mind was; Catwoman.
And I've always loved Catwoman with long hair so I'm happy to see that Nolan is going that route.
