Dark Knight Rises Casting Announced! – We Were All Wrong

Warner Bros. have today announced that Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle (Catwoman) in Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Christopher 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, Tom Hardy has been set to play Bane and NOT Hugo Strange as the internet rumours would of had us believe.

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.”

Nolan is going to direct the film from a screenplay he wrote with his Brother Jonathan Nolan with help from David S. Goyer. “The Dark Knight Rises” is out on July 20, 2012.

So Bane is the Bad Guy! WOW I didn’t see it coming! I guess this means Hardy will be beefing up for the role like he did for “Bronson”. With his acting chops I wouldn’t be surprised if this time we see Bane as the intelligent and dangerous character he is in the comics. Could we be seeing a telling of the Batman: Knightfall story line that saw Bane break Batman’s back and put him out of action for a while.
