    This just in: Anne Hathaway is the new Catwoman in the new Batman film The Dark Knight Rises. Tom Hardy will play Bane.

    Anne Hathaway Reviving Catwoman For ‘The Dark Knight Rises;’ Tom Hardy Is Bane – Deadline.com

    I've always liked Anne as an actress and she's always been a friend to "the gheys" so that's always nice. It's sad she's not getting the Catwoman love on the blogs today. But then again, neither did Heath Ledger when he was first cast as Joker and we ALL know he acted the FUCK outta that role. As for Tom Hardy, he's been good in everything I've seen him in so there's no reason why he won't be good in this.

    Can't WAIT for the movie! :biggrin1:

    I think all that matters is the spark between batman and catwoman, if they got that right this movie will be great but nolan has not really been good in portraying that lately.

    I like the choice - she's a good actress and has natural beauty.

    with christopher nolan and david goyer behined the story,both of these major characters(catwoman and Bane) in Batman history should come off 100% better than they did in the past franchise...that shit was terrible....it made the 60's tv series look dark.

    I love her and she does have a stunning natural beauty but she has all the sexual sizzle of road kill.
    Cat Woman is a sensual, smoldering, sexually electric character and Ann just doesn't have the goods.

    she could be good as long as she realises that catwoman needs to be very sexy.

    and any excuse to see Tom Hardys lips again...him and TI have the sexiest male lips like ever.

    If you're talking about Halle Berry, I'd agree with you 100%. (Although I admit every time "Catwoman" comes on cable I can't help myself; I have to watch). If you're talking about Michelle Pfeiffer, well you're in the minority amongst the comic book geeks out there. Now if you're talking about Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy and someextrabigguywithnodialoguebutaprowrestlerphysique as Bane in that George Clooney as Batman mess, you're 1000000% (to the nth power) correct.

    I'm reading that over and over again in the blogs today. I'm just gonna reserve judgement until I actually see her in the role. Although not for nothing, but Maggie Gyllenhall was HORRIBLE in the last movie. Sure she was a step up from Katie Holmes, but that aint saying much. Nolan's problem has been casting the female roles in the Batman franchise (another sentiment I'm reading over and over again in the blogs today). Maybe he'll hit his mark right with Anne as Catwoman. Only time will tell...

    Most of Nolan's problems was having weak female leads that don't do anything to advance the plot. It's a common flaw in both a novelist and a director.

    We'll see what will happen with Hathaway's character as Catwoman, though.

    I noticed in the press release Warner Bros say she will be playing Selina Kyle (whos alter ego is Catwoman) but they don't mention Catwoman by name. Perhaps it will be a similar sitatuion to Harvey Dent / Two Face in the second movie whereby we see how the character came to be? I'm also positive she will be the love interest for Bruce/Batman.

    Good casting choices, I can't wait to see it.

    I think Anne is talented, but she really annoys the fuck out of me.
    I really don`t know why, must be the voice.

    I don't know about Anne being Catwoman. When Halle Berry played the role she was sexy, smoldering etc. Everything she is meant to be! Anne is a little...nice. But who knows, she might be amazing in it. Will reserve judgement for now!
