The official press release issued by Warner Bros. about casting for 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises, noted that Anne Hathaway would portray “Selina Kyle.” Not Catwoman, mind you, but Selina Kyle. This, of course, led all the over-analyzers to wonder if perhaps director Christopher Nolan would simply tease us, and perhaps (horrors!) not show us Hathaway in a Catwoman getup.
Well, Hathaway let the cat out of the bag, so to speak, during an appearance on Oprah this week, confirming that she will indeed be seen in the film as Catwoman. Now, for all you fanboys who are letting out a gi-normous sigh of relief, congrats. But didn’t you even stop to think for one second that this may be the ONLY time Oprah ever gets a mention on TowerofTechnobabble.com? Just saying.
Anyway, since TDKR news is not plentiful just now, I figured it would be a good opportunity to share some well-traveled fan art depicting the two villains we know are slated for the film — Hathaway’s Catwoman and Tom Hardy’s Bane. You don’t have to look at the Bane poster if you don’t want to. Nobody’s watching.
