New photos and a video have been posted online of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, but beware—potential spoilers loom ahead!

Thanks to Just Jared, fans still uncertain about the costume that Anne Hathaway wears as Selena Kyle in director Christopher Nolan's third Batman epic should rest a little easier now.

As the photos taken on the set in Los Angeles confirm, Hathaway has what looks like
cat ears planted firmly at the top of her lovely head.

It's been rumored online for weeks that the goggles Hathaway was seen wearing in the first official photo of her as Selena would flip back onto her head, creating a "cat ears" look that would be credible in Nolan's "realistic" Bat-universe. That appears to be the case here.

We don't know what the context of the scene is, or whether this is even the absolute final version of the Catwoman outfit, but it certainly looks close enough, doesn't it?

Meanwhile, some video taken from the set has been posted online, also involving Hathaway. It possibly reveals some major spoiler action about her relationship with one of the other characters. Proceed below at your own risk (we'll explain what's happening after the video, because it's kind of hard to see).

What do you think of Hathaway's full outfit, "ears" and all? Are you digging the look or ready to get the claws out?

In the clip, Batman (Christian Bale) hugs someone at about the 25-second mark before running to the Batwing. That someone is Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, suggesting that their relationship is more than hero-vs.-villain ... (thanks to Slashfilm for pointing it out)
