Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, Tom Hardy as Bane, in "The Dark Knight Rises"

Hmm...good to see Anne Hathaway taking on a unique role.  Playing Catwoman (or perhaps the pre-Catwoman Selina Kyle) is certainly rather different from any role I'm aware she's played.

I don't know much about Tom Hardy, although I do own the comic book where Bane "breaks" Batman.  I remember someone online saying that they thought the next logical story in the Nolan Batman movies was "Knightfall"--Bane's defeat of Batman.  Plus Bane would be an interesting character--he's physically powerful enough to take on Batman, but he's also extremely intelligent.  He deliberately tired Batman out by breaking all the criminals out of Arkham before he attacked, after all.


  1. yea, bane is certinly a character that has been very downplayed and stupified outside the Batman comics. Let's just hope Noland does a better job of this then anyone else
