A new Dark Knight Rises scene description is out — and it includes a very spoilery reveal about Chris Nolan's new Catwoman, played by Anne Hathaway... and her relationship with Bruce Wayne. Spoilers ahead...

Hero Complex has released a little tidbit for their 2012 Film Sneaks issue. Here's the big breakdown scene everyone is flipping out over:

Gotham City is a war zone. A ruthless madman named Bane has ripped away any sense of security and the citizens, haggard and clutching suitcases with refugee anxiety, sit behind barbed wire waiting to see what will blow up next. A hooded prisoner is dragged in – it's Bruce Wayne, one of Gotham's most famous faces – but the eyes of the crowd go instead to the woman in black standing at the top of the staircase.

"Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane needs these guys himself," says sultry Selina Kyle, played here by actress Anne Hathaway, navigating the steps with stiletto heels that, on closer inspection, turn out to have serrated edges capable of leaving nasty claw marks in a fight. She also wears high-tech goggles that, when not in use, flip up and resemble feline ears.


The Hero Complex crew also interviews Hathaway, who reveals that everything on her costume has a function. Including, apparently, knife heels.
