Who would have thought Anne Hathaway could pull off looking like a bad-ass biker chick?

But that’s how she appears in the first OFFICIAL photo from The Dark Knight Rises. The image has Hathaway straddling the Batcycle as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman). It was posted online via the film’s official website, just click on the logo to find it.

She’s not very Catwoman-esque, meaning there are no subtle little ears poking out from the top of her head, but I would have been surprised if she actually had them. Somehow I imagine that the film will have her Catwoman moniker  come up because she a cat burglar, not because she dresses like one or she has 9 nines granted to her by a band of alley cats.

Hathaway looks good. But I have to say, Hathaway always looks good.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters next year. Catch another look at the recently released teaser trailer below.

On a minor note, what’s with the texture on her costume? Why does it seem that superhero costumes always have some kind of elaborate texture in their fabric? Just thought it was interesting.
