Eek! It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for-who will be cast as the villain(s) in the upcoming Christopher Nolan film THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Anne Hathaway has won Nolan’s heart and has been cast as Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman who led a double life in the comics, and Tom Hardy will play Bane also known as “the man who broke the Bat” (he broke Batman’s spinal cord in the comics). Bane is an escaped prisoner who has superhuman strength due to being pumped full of lovely drugs. Christopher Nolan says in his announcement:
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…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.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is set to open in theaters July 20th, 2012.
