Anne Hathaway accidentally reveals Selina Kyle IS Catwoman

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Oscar hostess let slip that the character she'll be playing in the final chapter in Christopher Nolan's Caped Crusader trilogy will, indeed, be a kitten with a whip.

Both Nolan and Warner Brothers have been curiously tight-lipped about whether Selina Kyle will actually become the morally challenged jewel thief who becomes the focus of Batman's attention, even though it seems a foregone conclusion to everyone with a pulse.

But during an interview that aired yesterday, Hathaway talks about the perils of waiting to hear if she'd been cast in The Dark Knight Rises:

"I was waiting to hear back to hear if I'd been cast as Catwoman, and my manager called me and said, 'Are you sitting down?' and I just go, oh my god, here it comes."

While the call was an offer to host the Oscars, not the call from Nolan's camp, Hathaway's dropping of the C-word seems to intimate that she will be hitting the Gotham night with an eye toward misbehaving after all.
