In the introduction to an interview that the Los Angeles Times conducted with Anne Hathaway about The Dark Knight Rises, the site detailed a brief scene from Christopher Nolan's upcoming Batman film:

"Gotham City is a war zone. A ruthless madman named Bane has ripped away any sense of security and the citizens, haggard and clutching suitcases with refugee anxiety, sit behind barbed wire waiting to see what will blow up next. A hooded prisoner is dragged in – it's Bruce Wayne, one of Gotham's most famous faces – but the eyes of the crowd go instead to the woman in black standing at the top of the staircase."

The description continued, "'Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane needs these guys himself,' says sultry Selina Kyle, played here by actress Anne Hathaway, navigating the steps with stiletto heels that, on closer inspection, turn out to have serrated edges capable of leaving nasty claw marks in a fight. She also wears high-tech goggles that, when not in use, flip up and resemble feline ears."

The article certainly paints a grim picture of a Metropolitan city thrown into chaos thanks to the masked terrorist, Bane. But the most interesting part is the fact that the description indicates that Catwoman might be a henchwoman of sorts for Bane. Or so it seems.

All of the answers will be revealed when The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012.
