    [Movies] The Dark Knight Rises *Spoilers!*

    http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=73379
    Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle (AKA Catwoman) in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. She will be starring alongside Christian Bale, who returns in the title role of Bruce Wayne/Batman.

    Christopher Nolan stated, "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. 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 will direct the film from a screenplay he wrote with Jonathan Nolan, from a story by Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer. Nolan will also produce the film with his longtime producing partner, Emma Thomas, and Charles Roven.

    The Dark Knight Rises is slated for release on July 20, 2012. The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
    Wonder how Mr. Nolan will pull off Catwoman, and Tom Hardy as Bane. Interesting.
    This is Bane if you dont know him: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bane_(comics)


    First Trailer.

    Yeah I'm really interested to see how Nolan is going to fit these characters into the Nolanverse. I heard, but I'm not sure if it's true, that while Bats is away, Catwoman kinda takes up the role of masked vigilante over the city, and he comes back to stop her, or something along those lines.

    should be good, I can't wait to see what Chris Nolan can do with Bane :P one of Batmans most underrated Villains (I mean come one, he worked out who batman was, set a trap for him and SNAPPED HIS SPINE, leading to Bruce Wayne passing the mantle of Batman to another, that's pretty hardcore )

    and interesting to note they say Selina Kyle, NOT catwoman, could they be going for another Twoface style story? can't wait to find out.

    and to all the people complaining that Anne Hathaway will suck as Catwomen... All I'm gunna say is think back to the furor when they announced Heath Ledger would be playing the Joker... that turned out alright didn't it Hopefully this time it'll be a little less...dangerous, but no less intense.
    Reading the A song of Ice and Fire series is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere and shoots the puppy, then punches you in the face

    Is that a game or new movie? I have never heard of it please explain.

    It all comes down to how Nolan does the style of Bane, going for the massive power house or making him look normal.

    As long as they finish the movie by snapping Batman's spine to wrap up the films, then I am happy.

    If I told you in 2007 that Heath Ledger was going to be a great Joker (let's be honest, the only good live-action one), would you have believed me?

    I just hope they don't go the breaking Batman's back route honestly. I hope they kind of ignore Knightfall and go on to drug kingpin Bane. I mean you can't do Knightfall without Robin(s). As for Tom Hardy, he will have to buff up A LOT to pull off unvenom-injected Bane.

    But when you think about it though, he didn't have much competition...

    IMDB has listed Tom Hardy to play the second villain in the third Batman movie.

    Jack Nicholson was a great Joker, but in a completely different style.

    Now the real question is how Anne Hathaway is going to come close to Michelle Pfeiffer, or, for that matter, Eartha Kitt... (We'll ignore Halle Berry. The poor thing)

    I think Jonny Depp was another considered actor to play Joker. Would it have been as good in the end? Idk... He's kinda type-casted nowadays.

    there has never been a bad batman movie, idk why you would say such things.

    OP to answer your totally random question now that I took 5 valuable seconds of my life to research it, no. Tom Hardy is the kinda guy that gives off the "i dont give a shit about anything" vibe to me. But when i say no, i mean its not gonna be epicly awesome, but it will work. Just an opinion, take it as only that.

    I sure hope that is sarcasm, I really do. What I would do to forget the rave party that was Batman & Robin and Batman Forever and... Basically, every Batman film that wasn't done by Christopher Nolan.

    For me it was just Jack Nicholson acting like Jack Nicholson with Joker's trademark makeup on. Anne Hathaway has more competition with Michelle Pfeiffer, she was excellent in that role.

    As an avid batman fan, I liked the movies so far. I particularly liked the supreme campiness of Batman returns with Danny DeVito and Batman and Robin with Arnold Schwarzenneger,

    It's not sarcasm.. The Tim Burton movies were a little off the wall but that's just Tim Burton doing the Tim Burton thing. Didn't make in unwatchable, is was entertaining. Besides the older movies before that were cool but corny.. so they went from corny -> trippy -> epic. So did every other comic book movie / show

    So you're saying that Michelle Pfeiffer didn't make Batman Returns? I'm old enough to admit that the Tim Burton ones were good for their time. They were campy, but that was the theme for action movies at the time.
