Batman - The Dark Knight Rises

GAF is right. This does deserve its own thread.

So here it is.

‘Dark Knight Rises’: Anne Hathaway will be Catwoman, Tom Hardy is Bane [Updated] | Hero Complex – Los Angeles Times

Looking forward to seeing Ms. Hathaway in this.

I read an article about Christian Bale in the Sunday paper and he mentioned it- he said that Christopher Nolan really hasn't told him anything about the script, etc. but he trusts him.

I liked Batman Begins. But I hated Dark Knight and i can't imagine that this would be much better, with Bane as the male villain. Bane, really? They couldn't do The Riddler?

To explain, here's what I wrote in regards on Yahoo Answers at the time, i regard to the ending:

As far as I'm concerned, the movie contained good strong writing, but with a faulty ending thanks to the surprise twist. On the surface, it seems like Batman made a good sacrifice by telling the Commissioner to blame Harvey's bad deeds on him. But if you scratch beyond the surface, I think it makes little sense, for 4 reasons:

1. I understand they didn't want Gotham City to know that Harvey had done those killings, but do the writers honestly expect me to believe that Batman and Gordon couldn't have come up with a better story than to blame it on Batman? How about blaming it on one of Joker's men or even saying they don't know who did them?

2. Noble noble Batman doesn't want Gotham to lose faith in justice and goodness by finding out that a good man did bad things. Well, that's understandable. But Harvey's dead now, and the people do still have Batman to look up to. The city needs someone living to look up to, more than the memory of a good man. Some people in the city wanted Batman gone, but others loved him. Is it somehow better for them to believe that a good man that is still alive has gone bad than it is to believe that a good man now dead did some bad things? The citizens will now hate and fear Batman; what's the point of the good citizens thinking Batman's a murderer? It's ridiculous, in my opinion.

3. I really believe Gordon never would have agreed to do it, because of his friendship with Batman.

4. Besides his loyalty to Batman, Gordon would be breaking the law by hindering a criminal investigation, covering up, and committing mass fraud. I don't think he would do that. I really don't.

I'm having a hard time imagining Catwoman in Nolan's universe at the moment, guess we'll see how that goes. Not too worried about it. Bane could be cool.

In the comics, Bane broke Batman's back in 1994.

Also, I don't care what you think about Anne Hathaway's looks or acting ability. She does not have the feline carnality of some of the other names that were tossed around.

I'm a little confused, and can only hope Nolan saw something that I didn't.

I also agree with Scumbo that the character itself doesn't seem to fit with the tone of this new series. And as much as I dislike Tim Burton, I liked Batman Returns and thought he pretty much did Catwoman as good as I could hope to see it.

I agree with both points entirely. Nolan is also about the last name that comes to mind when I think "sexuality" or even "strong female character."
