Harry smiled at photographers as he arrived at the film’s second premiere at the BFI Imax in Waterloo.

Oscar-nominated Hathaway lived up to her reputation as Hollywood’s golden girl in a gold floor-length Gucci gown.

The 29-year-old star, who plays Selina Kyle and alter-ego Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s third and final instalment, was on the red carpet alongside co-star Marion Cotillard, wearing Dior Couture at last night’s two premieres at the Odeon cinema in London’s Leicester Square and the BFI Imax.

Christian Bale - reprising his role as Bruce Wayne and Batman for the third and last time - also attended the star-studded premieres, joined by Tom Hardy, Morgan Freeman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy and the director.

Hathaway, a newcomer to the Batman films who had never worked with Nolan before, revealed she had to endure gruelling preparation for the role.

“It took so much training. If you’re familiar with my other works, you’ll see that I’m not a natural bad-ass so it took a lot of work to get there,” she admitted.

But she added: “It was wonderful, it was such an honour. I love the first two Batman films.”

Hardy, who portrays the caped crusader’s new arch-nemesis Bane, said: “It was great. I got to fight Christian!”

On the red carpet outside the BFI Imax, director Nolan said Bale made the perfect Batman.

“He has incredible dedication and focus, just like Bruce Wayne has,” he said.

“You see that in Christian’s eyes and it lets him present a really credible portrait of a self-created superhero, just the self-discipline and incredible focus.”

The Dark Knight Rises, also starring Sir Michael Caine and Gary Oldman, opens in cinemas on Friday.
