his offscreen persona annoys the shite out of me. even more so since he started sucking Nolan's dick for jobs.

The Dark Knight Rises casting speculation can officially end right now - Warner Brothers have confirmed that Anne Hathaway will be playing Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, while Tom Hardy has been confirmed as Bane.

Catwoman has long been a fan favourite for Rises - despite that Halle Berry film - and Hathaway has been a front runner during recent casting calls.

In the comics the character is high class cat burglar of questionable moral character who forms a complex love/hate romance with Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Hardy, who was cast before Christmas and thought to be attatched to any number of roles, will play Bane, who - unlike the joke of a character portrayed in 1997's Batman & Robin - is actually a genius military strategist and fearsome soldier driven insane by the super soldier serum 'venom'.

Bane famously broke Batman's spine during a confrontation in the Knightfall saga in the early 1990s, forcing Bruce Wayne to relinquish the mantle of the bat for a time.

Christopher Nolan stated, “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.”

On working again with Tom Hardy, Nolan said, “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.”

This news couldn't have come at a better time, with 2012's other superhero movies gathering all the column inches in recent weeks.

We're particularly excited about the announcement that Bane will be the villain - and seeing Hardy bring the monster to life - might we be seeing the long-awaited adaptation of Knightfall? We can only hope.

The Dark Knight Rises is released July 20 2012.

I'm not crazy about Bane, but I'm interested in seeing a Batman movie with a physical threat.

I wasn't crazy about the idea of Ra's and Scarecrow, but Nolan proved me wrong. I wasn't crazy about the idea of Heath Ledger as Joker (and neither were most internet nerds) but Nolan proved me wrong again. So although Bane is probably the last villain I could see fitting in Nolan's Batverse, I trust that he'll make it work. Same goes for Hattaway as Catwoman.

Despite knowing very little about Bane and Catwoman, I think I'm okay with this. Bane sounds like a formidable foe if he's got the brains to stand up to Batman, and insane-yet-genius villains always make for good plots. A Nolan Catwoman sounds like an excellent idea to me. She's always felt like a genuine anti-hero to me, rather than a villain with a heart of gold/best intentions, and I do enjoy me some good anti-heroes. And for that matter, Batman himself is sort of an anti-hero, so the dichotomy between them will be a joy to watch. If Burton could do it, so can Nolan.

I don't even bother worrying about actors anymore. Good writers and directors contribute more to the characters anyways.

Likewise. Ever classier than the second movie's poster.

Make sure you keep your eyes and ears open for news of the new Catwoman suit; plenty of fan-drawn speculations, but nothing official as of yet. The producers said it would have ze goggles.

The end of the teaser with Bane and the Bat gave me goosebumps.
