Anne Hathaway to play Catwoman in new Batman

Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle, who has a double identity as Catwoman, in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. She’ll be starring alongside Christian Bale, who returns in the title role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. Nolan stated, “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.” Nolan also confirmed that his Inception star Tom Hardy will play the role of Bane, an escaped prisoner who becomes abnormally strong after being pumped full of drugs. Nolan 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.” The Dark Knight Rises is slated for release on July 20, 2012.

    anne hathaway? somehow i dont see her as catwoman. i could think of plenty of women who would have made a better catwoman. besides, seems kinda funny that catwoman will be played by a vegetarian.
