Marking the first time an attractive woman – who can act (Sit down, Katie Holmes.) has appeared in Christopher Nolan’s Batman films, Anne Hathaway has been officially cast as Catwoman in The Dark Night Rises. Unfortunately, this also comes with the news that Inception star Tom Hardy is playing Bane which was essentially DC’s attempt at giving Batman his own Doomsday in the mid-90s after killing Superman sold a shitload of comics. I swear to God I’ve had sex. Deadline reports:
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.”
For those of you who don’t know, Bane breaks Batman’s back in the comics forcing him to go on disability leave for a while where he battles a new rogues gallery of HMOs and bed sores. Okay, maybe that last part didn’t happen. I’m mostly just tossing out ideas for Christopher Nolan “not” to use even though The Dark Knight proves he knows exactly what he’s doing.
Make Robin a jive-talking robot. Sorry, these things are just popping out of me.
Nipples on the Batsuit. Goddammit.
