The Dark Knight Rises is now in it’s final filming stages as it takes its talents to Manhattan, New York. Naturally, more eyewitness videos and photos have popped up online, this time showing a chase sequence with motorcycles, GCPD patrol cars, the Batwing, and Bane’s ‘earthquake device’. Though we know where Bane and Batman stand (on opposing sides) many wonder what role new character Catwoman will ultimately play in the film. While Anne Hathaway has received criticism for the above picture, she assures us that ‘we’ve only seen a tenth of what the suit can do’. Let’s then ignore the slight goofy-lookingness of the above picture and proceed with analyzing the Feline Femme Fatalle.
A young orphan who grew tired of being abused, Selina Kyle opted to take her chances surviving on the streets of Gotham. Kyle became a talented thief, gymnast, and martial artist, but practiced her own unique brand of justice, and always gave back to the slum that raised her. Fiercely independent, unabashedly shy, highly intuitive, and infamously ambiguous Catwoman is undoubtedly a Healer Idealist. Indeed Selina Kyle’s status as a hero or villain is up in the air, as she possesses her own unique moral code. Kyle often has romantic encounters with Batman and is always pursuing her own identity in Gotham City. While Selina often fights against Batman, she also has a tendency to display deep affections towards him in times of need. In true Idealist fashion, Selina Kyle eventually gives birth to a daughter, and quits her vigilantism for good. An event, however, we will not likely get to witness in Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster conclusion. The Dark Knight Rises is now starting to wrap up shooting and can be seen in all it’s glory July 20, 2012.
