It has been confirmed that Catwoman & Bane will be the integral part in the forthcoming final chapter of the dark knight saga. Honestly, I was not expecting Catwoman in the next sequel.
For those who are not familiar with the comics’ world Bane was one of the most intelligent & formidable foe in the batman universe. The specialty which made him different from the rest of the villain fraternity was his sanity & total control of self consciousness. He was also aware of Bruce Wayne’s true identity which made him even more lethal. Bane’s role will be enacted by Tom Hardy.
As for the female leads, Anne Hathaway will be taking up the role of Selina Kyle a.k.a Catwoman. There have been rumors about two more female characters, Talia al Ghul daughter of Ra’s al Ghul & Vicki Vale a journalist who might be Bruce’s likely love interest. Nothing has been confirmed though.
Since couple of months are away before the shoot actually begins so it’s early to talk about the remaining castings. Various information portals have been able to site names like Eva Green & Naomi Watts; plausibility of these Intel can only be confirmed once Nolan breaks silence.
Going by the track records of Christopher Nolan, I have high hopes for The Dark Knight Rises.
Releasing Date : July 30th, 2012.
