Too bad all the posts about how awful Heath Ledger would be as Joker no longer exist on this site.
That's ok.
We all remember.
Just like everyone was so excited about X3 and Wolverine before they came out too.

Ugh, can't stand Ann Hathaway.

I was hoping for Hardy as Hugo Strange, but I'm interested to see where he'll take Bane, so all is not lost.

I'm pretty shocked, I really didn't think he'd reuse a character already done in the movies again. I assumed he'd go with someone new (like Hugo Strange).
Well, it's not like the Joker hadn't been done before (twice).

Bane? Didn't see that coming.

Sounds like a pretty radical re-interpretation

I'm guessing Nolan is drawn to the "drug" aspect of Bane's addiction to "venom."
I was thinking the same thing.

I wonder if he'll be selling it, though, instead of just pumping himself with it.

Re: Anne Hathaway is Selina Kyle - The Dark Knight Rises

Bane is a very smart and cunning villain in the books, not just a muscle-bound thug. He's one of the few who deduced Bat's true identity, IIRC.

Good thinking.
That would fit with Nolan's style with these films of showing how fact becomes mythos.

Re: Anne Hathaway is Selina Kyle - The Dark Knight Rises

As i'm reading comments, Bane also ran the underworld for sometime and even pulled the strings of Joker without them knowing it.

I believe Nolan will make a better version than this

Two-Face had also been done before, though only once. And like Two-Face, Bane has been done badly, so Nolan can only improve on the previous depiction.

While Anne is nice to look at, she doesn't evoke "cat" to me. She's too big and clumsy.

Did you see her as Agent 99 in Get Smart? She looked awesome in the black leather jumpsuit and had all the right moves of a skilled fighter.

Re: Anne Hathaway is Selina Kyle - The Dark Knight Rises

Isn't Tom Hardy the one who blamed ST Nemesis for getting him addicted to drugs and alcohol?

Guess the wanker has plenty of experience for the role.

One of the few?? At least half the Rogue's gallery and a dozen assorted side characters have figured out Batman's identity over the years.

Sorry but Keira Knightely is superior to Hathaway in every way.
Nope, the opposite is true.
