Anne Hathaway's first Catwoman pic from 'Dark Knight Rises': Delightfully non-literal

The comic book adaptation gods look favorably on us this week. After the first shot of Henry Cavill in full Superman regalia from "Man of Steel," Warner Bros. followed up with an official introduction to Anne Hathaway as Catwoman Selina Kyle from "The Dark Knight Rises."

Up until now, Hathaway hadn't even been caught in costume by paparazzi while filming the final installment in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy -- where some of her co-stars have been snapped in more telling set photos.

Catwoman fans should breathe easy with this picture. The film seems to have forsaken the excessively literal cat costume in favor of something better fitting a cat burglar.

Unfortunately, much of the costume is also obscured by the motorcycle Hathaway is straddling, but we're pretty sold on the idea of Catwoman with a freewheeling ponytail and not  a restricting pleather mask.

What do you think? Check out the full shot of Hathaway's Catwoman below
