Catwomen, a role made famous by Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns (1992). Tom Hardy’s character has also finally been revealed, he will play Bane one of Batman’s most formidable rogues best know for breaking Batman’s back in the comics.
Catwoman was one of the most popular villains fans wanted to see return in Nolan’s vision, and if the character does follow similar to Tim Burtons Batman Returns, could also be a new love interest for Bruce Wayne.
Anne Hathaway (Devil Wears Prada, Love and Other Drugs), now donning the tight black vinyl and whip is said to be ecstatic with excitement, and fans everywhere seem to be more than happy with the news.
The character of Bane was last seen in the disastrous Batman and Robin (1997), which saw him being portrayed as a big brut with no brains, rather than the comics depicting him as quite a clever formidable adversary of the Dark Knight, even responsible for braking Batman’s back.
The Dark Knight Rises, released July 20th 2012 will be Christopher Nolan’s final Batman story, and what a story it’s shaping up to be. More announcements and further characters are due to be confirmed very soon, and speculation points to the fact that Catwoman and Bane will not be the only villains we see in the upcoming feature.
What do you think about the new villains? Are you happy with Anne Hathaway being cast as Catwoman?
