Strangest Catwoman there is but also one of the hottest! i always adored Pfeifer since i was 4 seeing Ladyhawke in theaters but her version of Catwoman stunned me when i was 11 when i saw the movie 6 times in theaters.

I mean she knew how to be the seductive lady.

I liked Michelle Pfeifer too but I didn't like how she is established as psychotic and having somewhat supernatural powers. I prefer Anne Hathaway by a long shot.

Pfeiffer's Catwoman was corny as hell. I've never understood why so many people rave about her performance in that movie.

She was crazy,when an actor does stupid and embarrassing stuff on the screen people hail it as a fantastic performance.Those people need to learn from Ledger,he went crazy without looking stupid unlike cough Nicholson.

Best Catwoman for me. At least between her and Berry. Haven't seen TDKR yet so I can't comment on Hathaway's performance.

Halle's was Catwoman in name only and she's not Selina Kyle.

But who else thought it was neat Michelle's influenced TAS's version of Selina?

I don't wanna turn this into a "Who's hotter?" thread, but I've never found Pfeiffer attractive, at all, ever.

I feel the same about Anne Hathaway.

Both are hot and I enjoy them both. Anne did a better, more accurate to the comics portrayal, and Michelle's was good also, but for different reasons. Pfeiffer's Catwoman was perfect for that particular depiction of Batman, with the dark kooky stylings of Burton. Her performance also holds a lot of nostalgic value considering most of us grew up with the 90's Batman films. She was Catwoman, but she was Burton's interpretation of Catwoman, not necessarily the Selina we've all come to love. (Well, most of us)

I found that Anne was much hotter and made a better Catwomen then Michelle.

I find it hard to compare Julie, Michelle and Anne and say which is best. I love all three and they fit perfectly in their own bat verses. Julie is the pioneer. Without her, Catwoman would not have been a household name. Michelle generated so much interest in Catwoman that she gained her own solo title. Anne's definitely earned her stripes and I'm looking forward to see how this will impact the Catwoman brand. I find it strange that DC isn't doing more to promote her, but I've never understood how that company does business anyway.

Anne is a great actress but the "look and feel" was nothing for me. I can't explain why but Michelle has done some things a little better for me. Michelle was one of the reasons why I watched Batman Returns in my childhood very often... I was screaming as I just saw a picture set of model Susan Wayland in this great outfit. It was the reason why I was watching Batman Returns yesterday again :D

Michelle's was corny. When she tried to eat that bird and started cleaning herself was just weird. Tim Burton had way too much control over the movie in Batman Returns, that was a straaaange movie.

Anne was a better Catwoman in terms of characterization but Pfeifer was a much sexier.

I personally am not a fan of batman returns or the interpretations of those characters including catwoman however she was the best thing about that movie which in my eyes isn't saying much. I do prefer Anne Hathaway but in terms of my favourite one I go with Julie anyday.
