New Batman Cast Announced!
A majority of the cast for the upcoming Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises” were revealed in the past couple months and I have officially bought into all the hype. I’m excited to see all of these new additions to the cast and to see their characters, whether they’ve been announced or not. The really big question on everyone’s mind was who were the villains going to be? Christopher Nolan denied that the Riddler was going to be the villain. I was actually hoping for this one after hearing a rumor that Neil Patrick Harris was going to be playing the Riddler. Other people I heard who were considered for the part were Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy. Speaking of Tom Hardy, he was the first actor to be cast in a villain role in the film. If you have seen Inception, you know Tom Hardy. Hardy was cast as Bane, a superhuman who is known in the comic books for breaking Batman’s back. I will be interested in seeing if they incorporate this angle into the movie as it would give Batman an ulterior motive to fight the villains. The other villain and hopefully not the last is Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle. Selina Kyle in the comics was Catwoman, though they have not announced whether she will actually be Catwoman after the disaster with Halle Berry. Many other actors and actresses are rumored or confirmed for the movie. Marion Cotillard has been confirmed for an unknown role. In my mind, I totally see her as Talia Al Ghul. The daughter of Liam Neeson’s character from Batman Begins. Joseph Gordon- Levitt has been rumored to be playing an unknown role. I hope that he plays a young Hugo Strange. Overall, I’m hyping this movie like a hole in my soul. Who do you think should be in the new movie?
