[[wysiwyg_imageupload:696:]]Could be that Christopher Nolan is ditching Catwoman's iconic whip in favor of something that's makes a little more sense - a hand gun!
If the related toys coming out of the recent 2012 Toy Fair are anything to go by, looks like Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises will be using a gun.
Jakks Pacific revealed their Miniatures line for the third Batman installment, and the Catwoman mini features the alter ego of Selina Kyle pointing a pistol at some unlucky soul's direction.
Jakks Pacific also released the Batman and Bane miniatures as well.
While the whip is associated with Catwoman, use of a gun is not unheard of as she did blast a bad guy right in head with a gun - the Black Mask! See image at the right!
