Anne Hathaway & Catwoman: 'Dark Knight Rises' Actress Still Wants Spinoff

Anne Hathaway really loved playing Catwoman in "The Dark Knight Rises." In fact, she loved playing Catwoman (a.k.a. Selina Kyle) so much, that when the subject of a stand-alone movie was broached to the actress, she started crying.

“I would love it. I actually ... it's so embarrassing, I was at a press Q & A thing the other night for a screening of 'The Dark Knight,' and the moderator asked me, 'So what was it like to say goodbye to the character?' And I burst into tears, because I miss her," Hathaway told Access Hollywood. "It just makes me cry. I miss her. I love Selena so much and I love her presence in my life and getting to… I'm crying again."

Hathaway, who does her fair share of crying in "Les Miserables," has previously expressed interest in a Catwoman spinoff, but only if director Christopher Nolan was involved.

"If he's interested, I'm very interested," Hathaway told Digital Spy in July. "I think it would be lovely to see more of her, but only if it's with the right people. She lives in this Gotham City, and so it would have to be established by the people who have made this Gotham City. For me, at least."

Unfortunately, it's highly unlikely that Nolan would ever return.

“She’s an incredible character and we’re very excited to see her and hopefully we’ll leave people wanting more,” Nolan told Access Hollywood over the summer, before adding that he was "done" with the franchise.

It was rumored that Hathaway's "Dark Knight Rises" co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt would appear as Batman in "Justice League," adding a connective tissue between Nolan's world and the upcoming DC Comics grab for Marvel-like screen synergy, but that rumor was refuted by Gordon-Levitt's representatives. For now, it appears Hathaway's Selina Kyle will remain relegated to "The Dark Knight Rises."
