We weren’t going to post anything about it because we think it’s a horrible choice (and sounds too much like a rumor) but Anne Hathaway is going to be Selina Kyle in the Dark Knight Rises and Tom Hardy will be playing Bane. There…we posted about it. ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?!
No, but seriously, the casting choice for Kyle isn’t that perplexing. Nolan has a knack for choosing horrible female leads in all of his movies and as much of a genius as he is, for some reason he always chooses the worst actresses in Hollywood to play his female leads, i.e. Katie Holmes and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
I think everyone was completely and utterly excited to see Hugo Strange play mind games on the Batman, but after the Arkham City trailer was unveiled, the reality of seeing Hugo on the big screen diminished. But, now we find out that Hardy will be playing Bane?! Really?! Hardy was meant to play a villian that utilizes his mind flex, not his physical flex. Hardy is too good of an actor to be wasted on Bane. Don’t get me wrong, I think that Nolan will pleasantly surprise us with this movie (like he always does) but for the moment we’re letting out a collective, “SIGH!”
I guess anything will look better than this though:
