8. Selina Kyle
"The Dark Knight Rises" first raised eyebrows when the initial production still of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman was revealed. What's up with that outfit? The goggles make "ears?" Why is she on the Batpod? A lot of grumbling ensued, but context is everything, and really, none of that mattered when it came to addressing the character of Selina Kyle. Indeed, she's never referred to as "Catwoman" in the film, and it's a willful choice, putting all the focus on a frisky, frail, strong-willed and street-smart character with a warm center. That's who Kyle is, and dare I say it, Nolan got the character more than Tim Burton did, however fun Michelle Pfeiffer's performance may have been.
