The Dark Knight Rises for Catwoman and Bane

There's finally an end to the speculating and rumor mongering about who's playing who in Christopher Nolan's third Batman film. After countless casting/villain rumors, many of them untrue and ridiculous, The Dark Knight Rises will be starring Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Tom Hardy as Bane. I think it's some boss casting and now that we know who's who the internet can start calming down. Hathaway will be a great Selina Kyle, with the possible skintight leather just an added bonus, and I'm really interested to to see what Hardy does with Bane. Plus it gives me an excuse to post a hot picture of Anne Hathaway. Meow. And for the ladies, a hot picture of Tom Hardy with his shirt off. Meow? The next Batman will have something for everyone! (via everywhere on the internet)

That Dark Knight will rise for a leather-clad Anne Hathaway and a shirtless Tom Hardy.
