anne-hathaway210Warner Bros have announced that Anne Hathaway will be Catwoman in the forthcoming third instalment of the rebooted Batman franchise, The Dark Knight Rises.

“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,” said director Christopher Nolan.

In other news British actor Tom Hardy has been cast as Bane – the muscle-bound freak who broke Batman’s back in the Knightfall storyline. It’ll be the second time Nolan has worked with Hardy after Inception last year, “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.

This new info open the gates for mass speculation on the new bat-storyline. Hathaway has officially been cast as Selina Kyle, the real name of Catwoman before she went insane and started stitching latex together but surely she’ll make the transformation before the end of the movie. Does she have the chops to compete with Michelle Pfeiffer? I’ll give you a few seconds to imagine a comparison…

Right…On to Bane who was added as laughable grunting muscle in the car crash that was Batman & Robin in 1997. He’s much more than just a slab of muscle, having brains as well as brawn and it’ll be interesting to see what Nolan’s take on him will be.

On your marks. Get set. Speculate!
