DC Direct’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Statues Offer Complete Catwoman Costume, Butt

A catalogue of new products from DC Direct has given us our best look yet at the Catwoman costume to be worn by Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises, the new Batman film directed by Christopher Nolan. We’ve seen only glimpses of the black catsuit and mask in leaked set photos and the precious little filmed material that’s been released so far, but the Catwoman Icon 12″ Statue, expected to go on sale in July, reveals and/or confirms several details of Selina Kyle’s Catwoman gear, including rubber thigh-high boots with silver stiletto knife-heels, rubber opera gloves, a utility belt, goggles that flip up to mimic cat ears, and what we can presume is some kind of textured body armor in the form of a skin-tight black catsuit.

“I love the costume,” Hathaway told The Hero Complex last year. “I love the costume because everything has a purpose, nothing is in place for fantasy’s sake, and that’s the case with everything in Christopher Nolan’s Gotham City.”

It must be said, the sculptors did an incredible job capturing the true idiom of Catwoman in this iconic pose, which inspires visions of a dramatic scene in which Catwoman discovers a shiny silver dollar on the sidewalk.The photos of the Catwoman statue and other Dark Knight Rises products come courtesy of Idle Hands, a collectibles blog whose Paul Nomad pointed this week that the last few months have been quiet for DC Direct, the merchandising and collectibles arm of DC Entertainment, especially in light of a far-reaching licensing deal with competitor Mattel. But DC Direct came to ToyFair 2012 with quite a lot to show for itself, including the Dark Knight Rises material. Idle Hands grabbed some photographs of some of the promotional material.

And this one, featuring a nice image of Bane in the COME AT ME BRO pose, comes from Toy News International:

Head over to Idle Hands for more previews of future DC Direct products, including action figures and statues from Arkham City and the New 52.
