Dark Knight Rises Casting News.

As you probably heard yesterday, Warner Bros. announced two key pieces of casting for Christopher Nolan’s third Batman movie, entitled “The Dark Knight Rises” (a title which still makes me think of bread): Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman (though conspicuously not listed as the latter)…

…and Thomas Hardy of Inception and Bronson fame as Bane.

Like pretty much every one else, I’m psyched on Hardy and iffy on Hathaway. For me it’s not her talent, it’s that she’s a movie star more than she is an actress. It’s like if Audrey Hepburn had shown up in the Batman tv series. She radiates an entirely different vibe than the rest of the known cast, which is full of character actors like Freeman and Caine and chameleons like Bale and Oldman. BUT people were iffy on Heath Ledger too and we all know how that turned out…
