Anne Hathaway is Catwoman and Tom Hardy is Bane in The Dark Knight Rises
It is now official. Warner Brothers has announced characters and actors for the third film in Chris Nolan’s Batman film franchise. Anne Hathaway will play Selina Kyle aka Catwoman, aka definitely not the Halle Berry version. Whether she gets all costumed up in the movie is anyone’s guess. Here’s hoping she does slip on the skin-tight Catwoman outfit, because as anyone who’s seen her in any of the movies where she shows off the naturals can attest, she’s kind of sneaky hot. Oh, and she’s a great actress and it’s a cool role and respectful commentary about how professional she is, etc.
Tom Hardy, better known as the cool British bloke in Inception, has been confirmed as Bane. For those that may not know, Bane is the supervillain on super-steroids who dressed like a Lucha Libre wrestler and broke Batman’s back once…
…ironically in a storyline called Knightfall. He’s kind of a badass, and it will be interesting to see what Nolan does with the character. All in all, I’m pretty-really-excessively hype about this.
