Catwoman: From Julie Newmar to Anne Hathaway. Meow.

By Liz Kelly

Anne Hathaway will play Selina Kyle -- and we assume her alter ego Catwoman -- in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" opposite Christian Bale. This is a role that has been played before, with varying success. Click through to the gallery for a look at Catwoman through the years.

Eartha Kitt is Catwoman. There is no second place.

I'd rather see Halle Berry in a catsuit.

Wait a minute... So Eartha Kitt is NOT playing Catwoman?

Julie Newmar is Catwoman.

They got the year wrong for Lee Meriwether's movie.

Anne Hathaway's nice and all, but she's a step down from almost everyone on this list. Yes, even Halle Berry.

Tritto. Eartha Kitt was the definitive Catwoman.

I like Eartha Kitt too. I feel like if nobody showed up to watch Halle Berry play Catwoman, what chance does Anne Hathaway have?

Only the underground shots.

Also, I can't think of Catwoman without Sean Young. Remember that craziness?

@sarahabc - I don't think anyone would go see Anne Hathaway in a stand alone "Catwoman" movie, but I think a ton of people will go see another "Dark Knight" movie. Batman seems to be the draw in this case.
