    i am very happy about this. i think that Hathaway will make a great catwoman. She is very sexy and immensely talented.

    Further I have no idea what they are going to do with bane, but I trust in Nolan!

    The only things I have ever seen Anne Hathaway in was the first hour of that extremely painful 'Devil Wears Prada' movie and 'Get Smart', but I wasn't expecting much from Heath Ledger before the last movie either so we'll see.

    I hope he makes Bane a major villain and a real threat (unlike the Schumacher debacle).

    If Nolan pick them, there is a good reason for it.

    Let's just wait and see

    Looks like good casting to me. I like Derek hope Bane is more of a badass then the Schumacher Bane. I want to see some back breaking.
