What do you think it is that sets Selina apart from the other women that Bruce has loved? What does she have that the others don't?

A question I am often asked and always glad to answer! I wrote a long-winded response here, but to put it simply, no one understands the many facets of Bruce the way Selina does, and vice versa. Their backgrounds, values, and morals may clash, but fundamentally they are very similar people. It’s that balance they have that ensures their relationship is forever engaging and enduring, whether they are together or not. 

I like Jonathan Nolan’s description of their relationship – I think he highlights the crux of why they work together so well:

In a weird way, she’s the yin to his yang. The dynamic between them is so fresh — the playful way she kind of pokes fun at him — it sparks a connection between them and takes some of the sombreness away from his character.

(Though it really should be her yang/light to his yin/dark)

That’s not even considering how iconic a character Selina is, right next to the Joker. Their history is long and rich; if you hear about Batman, you would not be far away from hearing about Catwoman either. She’s been with him almost since the very beginning, and that offers a lot of variety and nuance in the many depictions of their relationship.

Bruce and Selina
Batman Returns/The Dark Knight Rises

If you combined the two scenes together you would have the perfect mix of sexual and romantic tension.

I just wanna say that there was no sexual tension between Hathaway and bale because there was no chemistry. Keaton and Pfeiffer’s scene had PALPABLE tension. Their chemistry on and off screen was discernable.

Hence my saying combining both. What Bale and Hathaway lacked in sexual chemistry, they made up for with their restrained back and forth banter that recalls a Golden Age / old romantic classic. Either way, still a homage to the very best of their ineffable dynamic.

I was looking at your essentials list and I think you are missing Detective Comics 569 and 570.

I know I am definitely missing a few things here and there. My next stage is to split the Essentials list into groups. Thank you for letting me know!

Happy Batman (and Catwoman) Day!
July 23, 2014

How do Bruce and Selina celebrate life? Why, like many other romantic couples: they go fine dining, see the opera, watch a popcorn movie, get married, dance at a kitschy night club, stroll at night, and have a good deal of sexy times. 

Frankly, it’s BatCat Day everyday, but here’s to many more happy times!

All that really matters is ... the future!
Make that our future.

I promise – tonight was only the beginning!

Hello, Bruce. It's been a long time.

Is it true that Bale and Hathaway had an affair during TDKR shootings?

LOL those rumours really got out of hand didn’t they?

No, I really don’t think so. Despite their looking very good together, it appears they just had really good chemistry and camaraderie on-set. As I would expect any Batman and Catwoman actor to have together. ;) Christian and Anne are consummate professionals, and in their own relationships; it just doesn’t sit well that they would have an affair. 

(That said, remember when Michael Keaton and Michelle Pfeiffer dated? OK it was before Batman Returns, but still … it’s kind of like kismet with these two characters!)
