Anne Hathaway Is Interested in a Solo Catwoman Movie
Years ago, the failure of movies like Catwoman and Elektra unfairly turned studios away from making female-led superhero movies. But the times are slowly changing, and with Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel coming out in the next couple of years and Wasp co-headlining the next Ant-Man movie, we'll likely have lots of female-led comic book movies in our future. Now, Anne Hathaway is throwing her hat in the ring, and saying that she's open to reprising her Dark Knight Rises role in a solo Catwoman movie.
Opening quote
"I loved that character and I had such a blast playing her," Hathaway told Variety. "I'm not sure how it would work because I think the Chris Nolan chapter of the Batman story has been wrapped up and I'm part of that, but I love the DC Universe and it would be fun to take a trip back."

I thought Hathaway's version of the character was decent, so I would have no problem with this, except that it would make absolutely no sense to suddenly bring the Nolanverse into the mix. The character is still viable, however; even though the Halle Berry version was terrible, Elektra was recently redeemed by Netflix's Daredevil (which also redeemed Daredevil himself), so there's no reason we couldn't have a great Catwoman movie. It just wouldn't be Anne Hathaway, and she said she would give her blessing to anyone else tapped to play her:

"I don't think you can [feel possessive]," she said. "It sort of goes with the territory when you accept it and receive it from the last Catwoman. I was shown such generosity from Halle [Berry] and from Michelle [Pfeiffer], and so I would do that the next time as well."
Closing quote

There are probably other DC Comics characters who could get her own movie first, most notably Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, who was a standout in the otherwise terrible Suicide Squad. But maybe she could be cast in the Harley Quinn female villain spin-off?
