The Dark Knight Rises (2012) Official Movie Thread

Now confirmed, Bane & Selina Kyle!
The Dark Knight Rises' scoop: Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy join cast
by Jeff Jensen
Jan 19 2011 12:57 PM ET


Warner Bros. announced via press release this morning that director Christopher Nolan has cast Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle in his third and final Batman opus The Dark Knight Rises. For those who don’t know their Batman lore, Selina Kyle is Catwoman’s alter-ego, although curiously, the press release makes no mention of the word “Catwoman.” And in something of a surprise, Nolan also announced today that his Inception actor Tom Hardy will play the villain Bane, a more recent addition to Batman’s storied rogues gallery. He made a big splash in the Batman comics by breaking Bruce Wayne’s back in 1993. Hardy’s participation in The Dark Knight Rises has been previously reported (although never confirmed by the studio until today), but the widespread speculation was that he’d be playing Hugo Strange or Clayface.
Personally, Bane is my fantasy character to be realised in the Batman "Nolanverse", so this news strikes me as the most pleasant of surprises! Very Happy

So, what do you think?

I never wanted Catwoman re-introduced. They both seem like odd choices, especially Bane. I had my money on Hardy playing Black Mask for sure!
Catwoman seems a step backward IMO.
I have faith in Mr. Nolan's Dark Knight Rises. Remember when Ledger was first announced as The Joker and every fanboy and his blog screamed with hatred.... until they saw the final product of course.
Tom Hardy is an amazing actor though. Bronson as Bane!
Hathaway is a very pretty lady. Smile

I really liked the idea of Hugo Strange being part of the next film, but hey, that character is going to be explored in the sequel to Arkham Asylum, so that's something at least.

Personally I see a lot of potential in both these characters in Nolan's Bat-Universe. Selina has never been brought to live action accurately (I love Pfeiffer's Catwoman in Batman Returns, but it really isn't the comic character), and Bane also has a lot of story and character potential, particularly if it strongly based on his first major story arc.

Anyway, I haven't been let down by a single Nolan film yet, going all the way back to Following and Memento, so he's got as close to total trust from me as a film-maker can possibly get, and I'll be there regardless of what he chooses to do, and how he chooses to do it. Can't wait.

It's interesting to see everywhere that Anne Hathaway has been cast as "Selina Kyle" with no mention of Catwoman when everyone knows who Selina Kyle really is.
It's growing on me that after the psychological battle that Batman had at the hands of the Joker his next obsticle would be a more physical one in Bane. Could Bane be a direct result of what happened in "The Narrows" at the end of Batman Begins?
I have also heard that the other female lead is none other than... Vicki Vale.

Catwoman I can take or leave, Bane however is another matter , I cannot wait for Nolan's take on this character. My 12 year old daughter will be disappointed as no Harley or Ivy but she will be happy with these two villans.
I seriously hope that the final installment of th Nolan Batman trilogy is not a let down

I'm not worried. All I have to compare to from Nolan are Batman Begins, the Dark Knight and Inception (my new favourite mindf*** movie that replaces the Matrix). Of those three there is nothing short of OMG so I'm cool with pretty much anything Razz

I'm sure they will be fine, the amount of money this is worth to the studios I'm sure Nolan knows what he wants and will get from his actors.

I mean seriously how many of us were like no way can Heath Ledger play Joker??
He then went and freakin blew everyones mind.

I'll reserve judgement till I see the movie.

I like both actors and I like both characters, but the actors both seem like odd fits for their characters.

But Nolan has worked wonders before and I fully expect him to work wonders again. I just hope that Anne Hathaway is more than simply Selina Kyle and that she gets to let her inner leather-clad, thieving, pussy cat out to play.

Also possible Anne Hathaway action figure!

Bronson was, in many ways, like an english version of Chopper, and did for Hardy's career what Chopper did for Eric Bana.

For those who only know Hardy from Star Trek Insurrrection or Inception, here's what Hardy looked like in Bronson:

Yeah Hardy really got in shape for Bronson. He's got another movie called "A Warrior's Heart" or "Warrior" (depending on the market) coming out. It's kinda like Rocky but MMA related - he put on quite bit of muscle for the role.

In Nolan I trust

I'd let you know if it does as I'm going to see HP tonight, but alas they don't show previews for midnight screenings. Looks like we'll have to wait and see!
