The Dark Knight Rises: Anne Hathaway to play CatwomanPosted: January 19, 2011
The latest news on the upcoming Batman flick, The Dark Knight Rises –Anne Hathaway has been confirmed for the role of Catwoman. Warner Bros. have just recently announced this news, for the film which should begin shooting in May.
Hathaway, who will be playing Catwoman, alter ego, Selina Kyle, beat numerous other actresses to the role, including the likes of Jessica Biel and Keira Knightley, and director, Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception) says he is ‘thrilled’ to be working with Hathaway, agreeing that she will be a great addition to the cast. Also being confirmed as part of the cast, is Tom Hardy (Inception), who will be playing the abnormally muscular villain, Bane.
Of course, Christian Bale and Sir Michael Caine will be returning as The Dark Knight and Alfred; and to say the least, this sounds like a very interesting cast, with Hardy’s performance in Inception as Eames being quite impressive, and although I haven’t seen a great deal Hathaway films, she is a well renowned actress, displaying good performances from what I have seen of her, and seems very suitable for portraying the character of Catwoman.
The Dark Knight Rises will be hitting the big screens on 20th July, 2012, so put it in your diary..once you purchase a 2012 diary that is.
