Hathaway “Rises” Again!

19 01 2011

After an extensive search, Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that Oscar-nominated actress, Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle in the third film of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Hathaway will star alongside Christian Bale, who returns in the title role of Bruce Wayne/Batman.  Nolan was effusive in his praise of the talented young actress stating, “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 will reunite with Inception co-star, Tom Hardy who has been cast to play Batman nemesis, Bane.  “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,” said Nolan. The talented auteur will direct the film from a screenplay he wrote with his brother, Jonathan Nolan, from an original story by Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer.

“The Dark Knight Rises” is slated for release on July 20, 2012.

Hathaway has some pretty big shoes to fill as the sixth Selina Kyle/ Catwoman character. Following in the footsteps of the original Catwoman, Eartha Kitt, Julie Newmar, Lee Merriweather, Michelle Pfieffer and Halle Berry, what will Hathaway bring that will put her own personal stamp on the role?

Which Catwoman is your favorite?
