(SPOILER) First Look at Eliza Dushku in her animated Catwoman role. Eliza will be voicing the character in both Batman Year One and the Catwoman short film attached to the release. A release date of October 18 has also been announced.

Catwoman is my favourite comic book character so I am looking forward to this! Double-dipping: a role in Year One *and* her own short! This is a good time to be a Catwoman fan, especially with her new ongoing starting in September, and next year will be even better with The Dark Knight Rises!

Eliza will be perfect for this role. I'd also buy her as a live-action Selina Kyle---she has the right look.
Little bit too short in real life I reckon (even in crazily unrealistic heels she's not going to convince going toe to toe with 6 foot tall Christian Bale) though her actorly baggage, apparent persona and voice make her perfect for an animated Selina. But yep, that sounds like a great DVD extra, i'll be pre-ordering as soon as.

'First Look' just doesn't sound right BTW but what else do you call it, 'First Hear' (even though there's no sound) ? ;)
"First look" is correct because the link takes us to a never-before-seen image from the short.
Yeah, we've definitely heard this news before, but the picture is probably previously unseen, so in that sense it's a new look.

Catwoman fan, eh?

Playable character in Arkham City, voiced by Grey DeLisle.

My point is more that it's not Eliza, the image of Catwoman has absolutely nothing to do with her since she's providing the voice (i.e. it's in no sense a 'First Look at Eliza Dushku in her animated Catwoman role' - my emphasis). Not a big thing just struck me as a bit of oddness.
If anyone is wondering, Eliza's comments are taken from the Year One "first look" featurette on the recent Green Lantern: Emerald Knights dvd.
