Am I the only one that is just finding out about this?
http://www.deadline.com/2011/01/anne...-knight-rises/Chris Nolan has lifted the veil off his third Batman film. He has set Anne Hathaway to play Selina Kyle, who has a double identity as Catwoman. Nolan has also acknowledged that his Inception star Tom Hardy will play the villain role of Bane...
Can't say I'm too thrilled about bringing back Catwoman and I think that Hathaway is decent as a Romantic Comedy actress but I don't know about her being in a serious movie....
Here is Tom Hardy as Charles Bronson from the movie Bronson. Looks like he could pull off Bane pretty well.

She was pretty good in Brokeback Mountain...as a serious actress.
A lot of people were skeptical that Ledger could pull off the Joker when Nolan gave hiim that role, and he did.
At this point I would give him the benefit of the doubt on Hathaway. If he thinks she can play the part, she probably can.
I bet she's going to look fantastic in that cat suit.
One thing to remember about Bane - he is not the same as in the Batman and Robin movie. Bane is highly intelligent and the venom makes him impossibly strong (not superman strong but Nolan's world strong). He can match wits with Batman and it will be interseting to see which direction Nolan takes him.
Has it been mentioned in here that Nolan has also taken over the Superman franchise? Not directing (Zack Synder is who he chose to direct) but he is producing and he and his brother and Goyer are penning it. Sadly, he has already ruled out any crossovers and I imagine its because he feels Superman is out of place in the Batman world he has created. Its a shame though because the Superman/Batman dynamic and friendship is truly a great thing.

These are two incredibly boring villians for me. Ann Hathaway has the eerie ability to cloud men's minds. Don't get it at all.
Well besides the Joker...I think most of Batman's villans...the well known ones...all are easy to ridicule or look very campy. The Penguin was always hard to take seriously, the Riddler was almost another form of the Joker but less dark.
I trust Nolan. Personally, I've always wanted to see Talia (and her father), but this is okay. Better than Killer Croc or Clayface.
Love the idea of Clayface and think a movie built around him as a villain would be awesome. Croc could also be good, assuming Nolan downplays the tail and scales and plays up the Circus Freak angle.

I'm hoping someone gives Christian Bale a throat lozenge.
I thought the Dark Knight hinted at the existence of Superman. Something about a boy scout?

Not sure if this is official or not...
