When Tim Burton was tapped for the second Batman film, he spoke with Michael Keaton and they both agreed that they had already discovered everything about Batman, with the first film.

So Hathaway joins a list of many memorable actresses to play Catwoman, one that includes Julie Newmar, Eartha Kitt, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Halle Berry (let's just forget about this one though, ok.). And Tom Hardy joins a very,…
