Unpopular Casting Choices That Turned Out To Be Epic Performances

Anne Hathaway as Catwoman – The Dark Knight Rises

It’s no wonder fans of the Batman franchise weren’t sold on Anne Hathaway playing the femme fatale character that is Catwoman. She is princess Mia Thermopolis Renaldi, after all. Hathaway is known for her big smile and girl-next-door looks, and not to mention her fun good-girl roles. She was going to have to replace the crown with a black latex suit and killer heels.

Hathaway didn’t disappoint. Even Vanity Fair deemed her “the best Catwoman ever.” Huge praise for an actress who had to overcome mass adversity to be cast to the part!
