Bane and Catwoman.
I’ve got no sarcastic or pithy comments, and no real insight; only the overwhelming feeling that this is going to rule.
Playing the feline femme fatale Selina Kyle is none other than Anne Hathaway.
And Bane is going to be played by Tom Hardy.
You remember Bane. No, not the horrendous, zombie-esque interpretation from Schumacher’s Batman and Robin…
No, the Bane from the comic books. The hulking, intelligent, psychotic terrorist, addicted to muscle enhancers and thirsting for the blood of a certain flying rodent.
You know. The only character in all of the Dark Knight’s rogue gallery to ever really break Batman…
Update: EW’s got the scoop here. Worth mentioning that in their press release this morning, Warner Brothers didn’t say Anne Hathaway would play Catwoman, only that she’d play one Selina Kyle.
Sort of like how Aaron Eckhardt mostly played a Harvey Dent…until half his face was burned away, and he became a Two-Face.
