Arkham City Gameplay and Dark Knight Rises Rumours

Firstly, here is some of the gameplay for Batman and Catwoman in the upcoming Batman: Arkham City game. Also featuring Two-Face and a creepy gueststar.
Spoilers, though they do seem to have bleeped out plot relevant information,

Overall I think that it looks neat, the gameplay looks smooth and Gotham has the right kind of look and feel to it. It's going to be interesting to see just how much of Selina's "I'm a helpless damsel!" routine people are going to take at face value, as the clip implies that she was moments away from escaping by herself. Grey Deisle did a good job as her, I feel. I also like their version of Two-Face, they seem to have combined the burnt look of the Dark Knight version with the one from BTAS.

From over Io9 way they have a hint as to what the movie version of Selina will look like,

Anne Hathaway's Catwoman costume will reportedly be a far cry from Michelle Pfeiffer's leathery getup in Batman Returns or Halle Berry's... well, whatever the hell Halle Berry was wearing in Catwoman. According to an inside source, Hathaway's costume more closely resembles what Selina Kyle wears in the comics, which is actually a fairly practical outfit as far as things female comic book characters wear. Here's the report

"Anne's outfit is more tactical, like the comic book, than the previous Batman movies. She will definitely be wearing the goggles and it's going to be less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman costumes. She's going to look more like a robber."

But enough about things that could theoretically speak to the movie's aesthetic or narrative aspects...what about far more important matters?

"But fan boys shouldn't be worried. This costume is going to be form-fitting enough to make Anne look smoking hot. Everything from the looks in her eyes, her head movements, her body–everything is so feline. The role is taking her to new places."

From here,

Interesting, so they seem to have going with this version,

Over this version,

Good to know.

By the way, the above one is on ebay for around $500,000.

For legality, Selina's first appearance in Batman 1, from all the way back in 1940,
