Anne Hathaway is Selina Kyle and Tom Hardy is Bane

I know it may be hard to take in all that (weird) information at once, but its all true.

Warner Bros. Pictures announced the news earlier today that Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle or aka Catwoman. I know some will have trouble accepting that casting, but if Nolan has a vision, then let him finish his series how he want to do it. I believe she could do really well and maybe get some praise for her role.

Also, they announced Tom hardy will play Bane. That was a shock because Bane is while not the most crazy villain in the Batman mythology, he is not the most realistic either. I hope Nolan and Goyer have something believable for the creation of Bane. It is pretty sweet that Badass Tom Hardy will play the man that broke Batman's spine in the comics, back in the day.

Here is the official press release:

BURBANK, CA, January 19, 2011 – Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle 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.

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.
