Batman, Catwoman, Bane and more Dark Knight Rises movie costumes on display...

I was fortunate enough to see the Batman, Catwoman and Bane costumes from The Dark Knight Rises on display when the movie was released at ArcLight Hollywood cinema in July 2012, but there's nothing like seeing them again out of their reflective display cases, so you can have a real good close up view of all the seams and detail, plus alongside even more costumes and props from the final installment in Christopher Nolan's acclaimed trilogy.

Costumes worn by Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon 
and by Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake in The Dark Knight Rises
Speaking of fighting crime and these costumes were worn by Gotham City's law enforcement characters in the movie, Gary Oldman's 'Commissioner James Gordon' outfit and the uniform worn by Joseph Gordon-Levitt's young police officer, 'John Blake'.

But behind every strong man, there's a strong woman and even though 'Bruce Wayne' thinks that 'Miranda Tate' is a friend and lover, she's actually 'Talia al Ghul', the daughter of 'Ra's al Ghul', the leader of the League of Shadows.

This beautiful gown is worn by Marion Cotillard posing as the philanthropist and Wayne Enterprises board member, her secret agenda to get access to the clean energy fusion reactor to build a nuclear bomb to obliterate Gotham City.

If you're a fan of the French actress, be sure to also check out these film costumes from Inception and Public Enemies movie costumes.

Original costumes worn by Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle 
aka Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises
The other woman in Batman's life in this third installment is Anne Hathaway's 'Catwoman'. Here's a look at her sleek and sexy catsuit, plus the maid outfit she wears to break into Wayne Manor as cat burglar 'Selina Kyle', on display alongside Michael Caine's 'Alfred Pennyworth' butler outfit.

If you like this design, why not compare this catsuit to Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman costume from Batman Returns also on display at this Batman exhibit.
