Anne Hathaway to Play Catwoman/Selina Kyle in 'Dark Knight Rises', Meow!

The cat is out of the bag. No pun intended. Well, maybe. Christopher Nolan has finally announced Anne Hathaway will be the next bat-villain in his third installment of his Batman series franchise as Catwoman. We had speculated that Hathaway would be the winner to play the jewel thief love interest of Batman/Bruce Wayne. He also has announced who Tom Hardy will play. We had hopped for Professor Hugo Strange, but that will not be the case.

Hathway was one of the actresses that was listed on Nolan's short list. Other contenders, such as Natalie Portman and Marion Cotillard, were ruled out due to pregnancy. In a press release Nolan stated:
"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble cast as we complete our story."

We were thinking that Tom Hardy may be a good match as Hugo Strange, but he will be playing the back breaking Knightfall villain Bane. Last seen in Batman & Robin. Let's expect that this experience will turn out better than the previous one.

That leaves just one more role to be announced. That of Bruce Wayne's love interest. Or is Anne Hathaway filling both shoes as villain and love interest? Stay tuned.
