|A fan made mock-up|
Remember the rumor about Megan Fox playing Catwoman? Remember the Angelina Jolie rumor? Yeah, I do. Well, all the rumors can be laid to rest, Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle aka Catwoman... and I hate it. If you've ever, EVER read this blog, and see Anne Hathaway's name, it's usually in a negative light. She is the undisputed, most overrated actress in Hollywood. I just keep saying to myself... 'Director, Christopher Nolan has never let you down'. I have to believe he made the right choice for the film.
Last week I posted about the 6 women vying for 2 major roles. We knew Hathaway was in the running, but all along we thought the roles were that of Talia al Ghul and reporter Vicki Vale. Not so. It's official, the first of two lead female roles is Selina Kyle.
Bane. Hardy was cast back in October; but no one knew who he was going to play in the film. Most people guessed Dr. Hugo Strange or Black Mask. Both characters seemed to fit in Nolan's "real world".
The internet/Twitter/blogs all went nuts at the announcement. Nolan was bound to choose a lesser known villain that the Batman films in the past. But Bane was already portrayed (horribly) in Batman & Robin.
Like I said about Nolan before, I trust him, unquestionably. So I know he'll find a way to make this work!
