"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway as we complete our story," said Nolan.
'Catwoman' was created by writer Bill Finger and illustrator Bob Kane, partially inspired by Kane's second cousin by marriage, Ruth Steel.
The original and most widely known Catwoman, 'Selina Kyle', debuted in DC Comics "Batman #1 (Spring 1940) as 'The Cat'.
She was a beautiful whip-carrying burglar with a taste for high-stake thefts.
Catwoman was then portrayed in the 1966 "Batman" TV series by actresses Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether and Eartha Kitt.
Michelle Pfeiffer portrayed Selina Kyle in 1992's "Batman Returns", followed by Halle Berry in the 2004 stand-alone "Catwoman" feature.
Catwoman is skilled in hand-to-hand combat, with razor-sharp "Wolverine"-like retractable claws, also wielding an assortment of bullwhips and cat o' nine tails.
Catwoman is also one of Batman's most enduring love interests, usually depicted as his one 'true love'.
