Anne Hathaway Is Selina Kyle In “Dark Knight Rises”

Posted: January 19, 2011 in Uncategorized

Ending what seems to have been a wide-ranging search for his next female lead, director Christopher Nolan today announced that Anne Hathaway would play Selina Kyle in the upcoming Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises.” Hathaway will join returning star Christian Bale and a host of other cast members from Nolan’s previous DC Comics adaptations for Warner Bros. along with newcomer to the franchise Tom Hardy who was revealed to be on tap as the villain Bane.

Hathaway won out the coveted role of the future Catwoman over a list of actresses rumored to include Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley. Her most recent feature was last year’s “Love And Other Drugs,” and at present the news does not confirm whether she’ll appear in the iconic leather outfit of Batman’s feline foe or simply represent an earlier version of the comic anti-heroine.
