Catwoman, along with the rest of the Batman universe, is one of the most enduring and popular comic book characters that survived these multiple transitions and interpretations over the decades. She has a ton of unique things going for her. Not only does she have sex appeal (of course, she’s drawn that way), but she also exists as a unique figure in the dichotomy between the typical good versus evil action seen in Gotham City. Is Catwoman evil? Sometimes, but she is also good—sometimes. That makes her character a brilliant foil and love interest for Batman, which has helped her remain nearly as iconic as the Dark Knight himself. Now, she is being featured in the next Christopher Nolan entry in his epic Batman trilogy, being played by actress Anne Hathaway. This isn’t an easy role to jump into without being derivative, but like everything else in the Nolan-devised Gotham City, we can and should expect Catwoman to be reinvented yet again.
