Anne Hathaway has been cast for the role of Selina Kyle (Catwoman) in The Dark Knight Rises. She joins Tom Hardy who is set to play Bane in the film.
Warner Bros. announced today that Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle in the third Christopher Nolan Batman film. In comic book lore, Kyle is also known as Catwoman.
In a statement from the studio, Nolan said, “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story.”
In addition, the studio announced Tom Hardy, who appeared in Nolan’s Oscar contender “Inception,” has been set to play Bane. Nolan said, “I am delighted to be working with Tom again and excited to watch him bring to life our new interpretation of one of Batman’s most formidable enemies.”
The cast is coming together and this movie is becoming more and more of a reality. I can’t wait to see how this one is going to turn out. For those who don’t know, the character Bane broke Batman’s back in the comics, turning him into a paraplegic. Would Christopher Nolan be brave enough to have that happen at the end of The Dark Knight Rises? This is going to be Nolan’s last entry in his Batman trilogy, that would be a great way to dramatically end it while making sure another sequel is never made!
