Anne Hathaway to Play Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises and Tom Hardy to Play Bane

Anne Hathaway Will Play Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises

Well this is certainly a long way from The Princess Diaries: Anne Hathaway is confirmed to star in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises as Catwoman. Hathaway beat out a slew of other A-list actresses for the role including Natalie Portman and Blake Lively (they could try going for the role of Bruce Wayne's love interest, which is still up for grabs).

I have mixed feelings about this news; there's no denying that Hathaway is a good actress, but I wasn't wowed by her last cartoon-ish character role as The White Queen in Alice in Wonderland. Then again, it will definitely be interesting to see Hathaway show off a bad girl side for a change.

As an added bonus to this news, Nolan has also revealed that Tom Hardy will play Bane, an escaped prisoner who's all jacked up on wonder drugs. So how do you feel about these latest developments?

Hmm. I wasn't sure about this one, but I think she probably will knock it out of the park. No wonder she looked so happy at the Globes!

I trust on Christopher Nolan's choice, so I thing we just have to wait and see the results. I still remember how everyone was bashing when Heath Ledger was casting as The Joker and we all know how that result.
