The new issue of TIME magazine has a first look at the Catwoman suit from the upcoming Warner Bros. comic book adaptation. Here’s the picture followed by the article.
The cat is finally out of the bag. HALLE BERRY slinks into a strapping new ensemble this week when filming starts in Vancouver for Catwoman. The Oscar-winning actress plays the Felonious Feline (see also: Princess of Plunder, Mistress of Malevolence) from the Batman series, a role made famous by Eartha Kitt in the ’60s TV show and reinvented by a neoprene-clad Michelle Pfeiffer in 1992. Berry’s leather cat suit for the 2004 film is “very bare, very urban, very downtown,” she says. Her character, Patience Price, is a scientist at a cosmetics company who transforms into Catwoman â€” or should we say Sex Kitten?–to take on her nefarious boss, played by Sharon Stone. Benjamin Bratt as a detective is the love interest for Berry’s Catwoman, who is both villainess and heroine. “She’s not Superman,” Berry says. “She’s not trying to save the world.” Instead, like a pampered house pet, Berry says, “Catwoman is out to save herself.” Could be quite a purr-formance.
Thanks to ‘Hmmm…’ for the heads up.
