Anne Hathaway to Play Catwoman

Anne Hathaway has been cast as Catwoman aka Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises. In a statement issued by Warner Bros., Nolan said, “I am thrilled to have the oppurtunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story.

In a case of Hollywood nepotism, Tom Hardy will also join the cast as 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.”

If you don’t know who Bane is, he’s the guy who breaks Batman’s back leaving him a paraplegic. In another interview, Christian Bale said Dark Knight Rises will probably be his and Nolan’s last Batman film. Unless Nolan sees another story, then they’ll be back. So basically it was a non-statement. But it does open the door for Bane breaking Batman and making the movie awesome however unlikely that is.
