As Michelle Pfeiffer taught us in Batman Returns, Catwoman is supposed to be a sexy and seductive villain that toys with Batman in the way a cat toys with a mouse before chowing down. I just can’t get past seeing Anne Hathaway as the little princess in The Princess Diaries… I understand she has had some other movies that were pretty good. I personally thought that The Devil Wears Prada was a decent film. I just don’t think that she is that great of a choice for this role. I hope that she proves me wrong and turns out to be a great Catwoman. God knows we don’t need this film to be the anchor that weighs down this excellent series of films.
As far as Tom Hardy playing Bane… I loved him in Inception. He’s not huge like Bane should be but I’m sure they will try and fix that. They can’t do any worse than the Bane in Batman & Robin. Well, they could but I think the world would explode if that trash was ever topped. What do you guys think? Will this be a good choice or just a mediocre one?
