Anne Hathaway Cast as Catwoman in 'Dark Knight Rises'

Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle (Catwoman) in The Dark Knight Rises and will star opposite Christian Bale and Tom Hardy!

The 28-year-old actress “will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story,” director Christopher Nolan said in a release.

“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,” Christopher continued. Tom will play Bane, a villainous escaped prisoner “who became abnormally strong after being pumped full of drugs”.

The Dark Knight Rises is scheduled for a July 20, 2012 release.

    I’m not sure how I feel about this! I’m sure she’ll be fine but I would have liked to see someone else in the role. I was really hoping for Kiera Knightley

    Nothing against Anne but it would have been more interesting if they would have cast a completely newcomer. Anne is talented but to boring and incurious for this role.

    I remember everyone bitching and complaining about Heath Ledger when he was first cast as the joker, so i wish everyone would stop. If Nolan wants her in his film, i’m confident she will do great. Just wait and see.

    Nolan once said in interview that there will be no Catwoman in his Batman movies and I really wished for some new female character. Catwoman is a little overrated and it will be hard for Anne to be compared with Michelle Pfeiffer. But most of people didn’t believe in Heath Ledger at first and his Joker was brilliant so I’m not gonna say this choice is bad until I see the movie.

    Cat woman has a sexiness which Anne hasnt got. But I love Anne so I guess I dont really care lol.
    I was hoping that Chris Nolan would have cast Joseph Gordon Levitt too, I think hes really underated and he needs a main stream block buster to make people take notice. Hopefully Chris casts him in his future projects.

    e Says:

    I like Anne but i don’t know about this, I guess we’ll have to wait for the end result to see if this will be another “batman begins” or another “the dark knight”.

    I would have ratter seen some other female villan, my favorite is Harley Quinn, it would have been great to maybe have her show up and seek vengance for the death of the joker or something.
