So what will Anne Hathaway's Catwoman costume look like?

With The Dark Knight Rises currently filming and few set reports or pics to sink our teeth into, we may just have the very next best thing. We know what Anne Hathaway's Catwoman will look like.

Ever since it was announced that the actress was cast as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, what we all really wanted to know was 1) What will the Catwoman costume look like? and 2) (and more importantly) What will Anne Hathaway look like in it?

Will she look more like Michelle Pfeiffer's seductive—albeit twisted—Catwoman, which has been forever seared into our brains since Batman Returns? Or will she have more in common with Halle Berry's more "trashy" rendition of the character from that really bad Catwoman film?

Hollywood Life has the "inside" answer to those questions:

"Anne's outfit is more tactical, like the comic book, than the previous Batman movies. She will definitely be wearing the goggles and it's going to be less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman costumes. She's going to look more like a robber."

Which sounds a lot like this:

This more practical approach to the Catwoman costume (yeah, let's face it, there was nothing practical about either Michelle Pfeiffer's or Halle Berry's Catwomen—except maybe for those claws) will certainly please some Batman fans but may disappoint others who wanted a bit more sexiness (make that nakedness) to their favorite catburglar.

Still, with Anne Hathaway in the role—and in director Christopher Nolan's twice-proved capable hands with the Batman movie franchise—we're certain that she will bring a lot of feline hotness to the part no matter the costume. (The 28-year-old actress has been apparently working out nonstop to get in shape for the role.)

"Everything from the looks in her eyes, her head movements, her body— everything is so feline," this insider reports again. "The role is taking her to new places."

We just can't wait to see that. Can you?
