Actress Anne Hathaway has joined the cast of director Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises.”
And we can tell you who she’ll play in the movie. If you don’t want to know, turn back now (and avoid the Internet until the movie opens…)
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hathaway has been cast as Catwoman for the film. Hathaway won the role over several high profile Hollywood actresses including Jessica Biel and Keira Knightly.
“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 said in a press release.
Hathaway joins Michelle Pfieffer, Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt in bringing Catwoman to life on-screen.
And that wasn’t the only “Dark Knight Rises” news. After months of speculation, it’s been confirmed that Tom Hardy will play Bane in “Rises.” Bane was prominently featured in the “Knightfall” storyline several years ago. The character is best known for a story where he broke Batman’s back, leaving the hero a paraplegic.
So, what do you think of the casting news?
