Big news for Batman fans — the role of Catwoman and Bane have finally been cast for the final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Yahoo News says:
Warner Bros just announced that Anne Hathaway will play Selina Kyle — who is more commonly known as “Catwoman” — and that Tom Hardy, of Nolan’s “Inception,” will play Bane.
It is definitely worth noting that the Warner Bros. release never says the word “Catwoman.” That could mean that Hathaway will be playing Kyle before she turns into Catwoman, or that the studio is trying to play a little coy with the announcement of an iconic Batman love-interest-cum-villain.
Cum-villain? I’d have thought Lindsay Lohan would be a shoo-in for that. Her agent really dropped the ball on that one!
