“The Dark Knight Rises" Villains Casting Announced

Post by Sid Seadevil on Wed Jan 19, 2011 1:31 pm

Deadline Hollywood...

"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.
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."


I have absolutely zero problem with either Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle or Tom Hardy as Bane. I really am looking forward to this film.

You know, I could be talked into going to the dark side, if it meant being a partner in crime with...



...Ms. Hathaway.

Absolutely agree.*

*Quoting Patrick's post in full just so I'll have to look at that photograph twice when I'm scrolling down the thread.

You know, I'm not sure I've ever actually watched a film with Anne Hathaway in, so can't really judge how good or bad she might be.

Tom Hardy as Bane, though? That sounds like a rather good idea.

Actually Nick, Hathaway has a surprisingly good range as an actress. I can certainly see why Nolan would be inclined to cast her as Selina.

Hardy as Bane is an inspired choice, I think.

Quiet. Indeed one can only salivate speculate on exactly how she is going to look clad in a catsuit.

Well there is a picture one can easily find, but we'd better not post it here. Wink

Would the Nolan fims have been better if they'd have had these opening credits? I think so.

There was a brief news report yesterday that filming on the new Batman movie has started... in Pittsburgh. No, really. Apparently Pittsburgh is the new Gotham City.
