Michelle Pfeiffer excited about Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

April 30th, 2012

Michelle Pfeiffer thinks Anne Hathaway will make a fantastic Catwoman in 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

Michelle played the role in 'Batman Returns' and is thrilled Anne will tackle the formidable character in the forthcoming Christopher Nolan-directed movie because she can ''go to the dark places'' needed for the villainess.

She told Empire magazine: ''I think she's great. I'm actually very much looking forward to seeing her in that role. I'm a big fan of hers and I think she has everything you need for that role. She has the humour, she can go to dark places, she's obviously very talented. I think she's going to be really good.''

Although Michelle loved playing Catwoman in the Tim Burton directed movie, she isn't protective over the role.

She said: ''Halle Berry did it already, it's fine. The whole thing with Batman is that they're always changing the world with each director. I would have loved to have done it but I know that's not what the franchise is really about now.''

Michelle is a huge fan of Nolan's take on the franchise saying, ''I love it. It's very different to Tim's but I'm a fan.''
