Anne Hathaway will play Selina Kyle, the slinky and savage outlaw who is known as Catwoman, in next year’s Christopher Nolan film “The Dark Knight Rises,” according to a press release from Warner Bros.

Tom Hardy, already announced as a cast member, will play Bane, the chemically created brute who first appeared in the comics in 1993 — making him a far “younger” villain for Nolan’s Batman mega-franchise, which has most prominently featured the Joker (who first appeared in 1940) , Two-Face (1942), Ras Al-Ghul (1971) and the Scarecrow (1941).

Catwoman — then just called “The Cat” – first appeared in 1940 as the creation of Bob Kane and Bill Finger, and she has brought leather-clad sexual tension to the Batman adventures both on the page and beyond; she was portrayed by Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt on the 1960s television series starring Adam West as the caped crusader (and by Lee Meriwether in 1966 film starring West) while Michelle Pfeiffer memorably cracked the whip in the role opposite of the masked Michael Keaton in Tim Burton’s 1992 film “Batman Returns.” In 2004, Halle Berry starred in the character’s own solo film, “Catwoman,” but the film became an infamous flop and was jeered by comic-book fans after director Pitof jettisoned years of comic-book lore and character touchstones.

Nolan, in the Warner press release, said: “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.” Of Hardy, who worked with Nolan on “Inception,” the director said: “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.”

Nolan will direct the film from a screenplay he wrote with his brother, Jonathan Nolan, from a story by Nolan and David S. Goyer. Nolan will also produce the film with his wife and longtime producing partner, Emma Thomas, and Charles Roven. “The Dark Knight Rises” hits theaters on July 20, 2012.
 
Please, NO POLL.

Mmm, Hathaway. :up:
 
Love that pic. Good god.

I was just rereading Catwoman: When in Rome. I definitely have a feeling that Nolan probably looked at this when developing Selina's character, given his interest in the works of Loeb & Sale.

This image in particular struck me as kind of Hathaway-esque -

Maybe it's the eyes.

Anyways, definitely check this book out if you haven't. Fun read and maybe an insight into what type of Selina we'll see.

Funny, I'm a huge fan of TLH and DV and I still haven't got round to reading this. Must pick it up at some stage.
So, Selina Kyle as Falcone's daughter? Would bring us back to BB to close the circle.
 
Hold on a second. Why are people okay with her possibly being Falcone's daughter being a full circle to BB, but loathed the idea of Talia being Ra's daughter doing the same thing? :huh:

How do you know they're the same people?
 
Well, I wouldn't mind either, TBH. I'd just rather see Catwoman in the final of Nolan's Batfilms, and given how he mined TLH for TDK, it wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility for them to include this details of her bio in TDKR.
So many acronyms.
 
I don't like her. I really hope Nolan picks Marion Cotillard.

Agreed...as everyone knows Inception was just a big elaborate audition for Marion to be cast as Catwoman. Hopefully she gets confirmed for the character soon.
 
How much makeup will it take to turn Hathaway into a convincing vamp in her twilight years? Will she have to go to a nursing home to do research for her role?
 
I think i'm gonna buy get smart to check how believable hathaway can be as a badass ( I saw it in theaters but don't remember a thing) !
 
I still think Cotillard has a shot at the role.

Nolan can rework the character so that she is a pregnant French socialite :up:.

The child will be Bruce's and he will be Damian in Nolan's continuity. Also, he will be half cat, half bat, and half human!
 
I think Hathaway will be great. (I have a very hard time seeing her top Pfeiffer in my mind though.) I am very curious to see what angle Nolan and company will take with Catwoman. :up:
 
Keep the crude talk at home people.

She is :up:.

We know she can deliver solid dramatic work, and she showed she can handle action in Get Smart.

My post was tame, and a joke. I've seen way worse around here. I also don't get what's crude about the female chest anyway. News flash: women got chests. Everyone who's looked at a woman knows this, even five year olds. Nobody's going to be offended if I talk about them but idiots.

I'm just glad that we're more than likely getting a faithful interpretation of Catwoman for the first time ever on screen.
