In the final scene of The Dark Knight Rises we see Bruce sitting at the table with a brunette.

Scene in cafe

Is this woman Selina Kyle or is it someone he's met in his new life?

It looks like Michelle Monaghan a bit. But it seems stupid for such a small time, she would be called. –  Mistu4u Aug 2 '13 at 13:00
It is definitely Anne Hathaway in her role as Selina Kyle. –  Pål GD Aug 2 '13 at 13:43

@Mistu4u Well, let's say "advertizing". :-) There can never be too many interlinks between related questions to create a nice interconnected network of information. And if I happen to have given an answer on that one, too, then well... ;-) –  Napoleon Wilson Sep 30 '13 at 17:20

It is definitely Selina Kyle, never thought it could be someone else (and have never heard anybody not referring to her being Selina Kyle). Yet that particular screenshot is indeed a bit vague, but together with the fact that due to the story's development she is most probable to be Selina Kyle it still bears enough resemblence to Anne Hathaway to be quite sure.

And in fact the movie's script agrees with me:


Alfred folds his paper. Pulls out his money, then stops, seeing...across the tables, a familiar couple... Bruce smiles at Alfred, who nods. Bruce turns back to the pretty brunette in pearls. Selina. Alfred pays his bill, content.

Note also that she appears to be wearing the necklace she steals early in the movie - I don't believe Bruce ever got it back. –  Adam V Aug 2 '13 at 13:42
@AdamV Hah, right, might be possible, never noticed that. Yet I think he got them back at the ball (when she in turn took his car) but maybe gave them back to her later on, since "they really look much better on her". –  Napoleon Wilson Aug 2 '13 at 13:47
sounds familiar, but I can't remember for sure. I'll re-watch the movie to confirm. –  Adam V Aug 2 '13 at 13:49
I think this question is what's known as a "softball". :) –  dmcgill50 Aug 8 '13 at 20:22
@dmcgill50 I didn't get that? You mean because it's such an easy target? –  Napoleon Wilson Aug 8 '13 at 20:25
