CATWOMAN: Nolan Accepts the Challenge
There was really only one reason for Christopher Nolan to make a third Batman film; to top the second one. There was really only one way to even attempt to do that, and Warner Bros. acknowledges this today by announcing the casting of Anne Hathaway in the role of Catwoman for The Dark Knight Rises. As an comic book fan of some years and a Batman fan in particular, this is the news I was waiting for. That Tom Hardy's mystery role has been confirmed as Bane I can take or leave. Anyway, consider this a kind of placeholder post to preface some perhaps more substantial thoughts on this particular bit of American mythology in the near future.
