Meeeow! Anne Hathaway has some very big paws to fill as Catwoman/Selina Kyle in the upcoming Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises“. The actress will be donning a very famous catsuit worn by many sexy women before her! She joins a group of ladies that includes not one, but three former pageant queens!

When fierce images and clips of Hathaway as the character hit the web last week, the reaction from many fans was less than favorable. Anne told MTV “What I am happy to say is, if you didn’t like the photo, you only see about a 10th of what that suit can do, and if you did like the photo, you have excellent taste.”

As we know, Hathaway is not the first to fill this legendary role. Take a look at the history of Catwoman and let us know how you think Anne stacks up among the pack!

The first Catwoman to captivate audiences was Julie Newmar in the 1960’s TV series ‘Batman’. Newmar even designed and wore her own catsuit in the series. After Newmar hung up her claws, spitfire Eartha Kitt portrayed the famous feline for the final season of the show.

Lee Meriweather, a Miss America in 1955, became the first Catwoman in a film, when she starred in the 1966 movie “Batman and Robin”.  She was followed by the ferocious Michelle Pfeiffer who starred alongside Michael Keaton in 1992’s “Batman Returns”.  Most recently, Oscar-winner Halle Berry dawned the kitty ears for the 2005 film “Catwoman”.
