Tom Hardy will play Bane, and Anne Hathaway will play Selina Kyle (no mention of Catwoman). Confirmed by Warner Bros. and Nolan himself.

Tom Hardy as Bane is a big win. I'll have to be convinced about Hathaway.

JGL as Riddler would put both of these to shame, though. :( I'm also a big fan of my friend's long-held suggestion that Jack Black as the Penguin would rule. No rumors supporting it or anything, but I think it's a very good idea.

I'll have to be convinced about Hathaway. I would tend to agree, but there's something about that cat suit that could turn any woman into Eartha Kitt. Hell, it even made Michelle Pfieffer appear hot as balls. :D

JGL as Riddler would put both of these to shame, though.Maybe. I love the movies he's been in more than JGL himself, but he's no slouch. Black as the Penguin might be pretty cool, though. Too bad that's not an actual rumor with some truth to it.

I've never seen any of her movies, but from what I've heard Anne Hathaway is a good actress. Didn't she get an Oscar nod for Rachel Getting Married?

Do you mean Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Not sure he'd out-do Hardy... although I'd prefer Hardy in a more demanding role.

I'd be tempted to go a little more left-field for Riddler. Someone like Michael Eklund.

Didn't she get an Oscar nod for Rachel Getting Married?Her performance that year was excellent, but she was up against some pretty awesome competition as well. Personally, I would have picked Meryl Streep over Kate Winslet for that year, but what do I know? Melissa Leo's and Angelina Jolie's performances were very good that year, too (especially the former).

Meh. The riddler is a very interesting character, but Bane was always very one-dimensional to me. Just a pro-wrestler on a roid rage. Yea, he could easily squeeze batman like an orange, but hes so dumb that there was never a time i thought "oh no, he might actually beat batman" because batman can easily outsmart him 100x over. even if he gets batman in a choke hold you might think "oh well hes fucked now" but hes got those stupid tubes coming out of his back that make such an obvious weak spot... batman needs to fight more challenging enemies to keep these movies from getting stale.

Have you read the comics? The Bane in Batman & Robin was a total bastardization of the character. He's as smart as he is big in the comics, not just the roid raged freak that Schumacher's movie portrayed him as. In Knightfall, he realized it'd be foolish just to attack Batman head on - so he destroys the walls of Arkham Asylum, letting everybody out so that Batman would then spend months trying to round everybody else to the point of total exhaustion. He figured out that Batman was Bruce Wayne on his own (I believe it was just from the way that Bruce walked, but it's been awhile), and then when Batman had finally rounded everyone up, Bane broke his back and put him out of commission for awhile.

I was hoping that Nolan would do Bane, but after Batman & Robin I was worried he wouldn't.

There's supposed to be two lead female roles in the film, and the big rumor I'm seeing is that the other one is Eva Green playing Talia al Ghul. I'd love to see that.

DethMaiden
01-20-2011, 07:45 PM
Yeah, Bane done well can be done VERY well. He's a genius and a brute. Deduced Batman's identity and broke his back in the same arc. Nolan would be a fool not to play up that aspect.

Exactly! Bane in B&R vs Bane in Knightfall is like night and day. Nolan will do Bane justice there is no doubt in my mind. If the other female is not Talia al Ghul I would like to see Harley Quinn.

According to new comments from Nolan, there will be no Riddler or Penguin in this film. Thankfully also no CG Joker.

And it will be the last one. Properly concluding the story.

Also planning to shoot much more of it with IMAX cameras.

It's the last one Nolan is doing, Warner Brothers is devloping another one so there will most likely be another Batman movie following this.

Eh, I'm okay with it. It's not like anyone thinks the Nolan films are just entries in the series that Burton started, or that Burton's films were a continuation of the Adam West stuff. It's not they're ever going to stop making movies about one of the most beloved characters in Western pop culture. Nolan's will likely go down as the best, but that doesn't mean they have to be the only.

ravenheart
02-06-2011, 11:44 AM
Still a bad idea. Unless Nolan makes a colossal howler with this next one, which I think we know he won't, following them with anything is going to be a failure.

They would be better off making something about the other characters we didn't see in Nolan's series, and tie those in to his.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Alberto Falcone/Holiday.

Could be interesting.

Holding out hope for Talia to come in and bring it full circle from Batman Begins with the League of Shadows. Maybe with Bane at her side? He was a member at one point in the comics and Ra's tried to hook the two of them up, IIRC.

I'm not doubting Hathaway as Catwoman, I'm actually pretty interested. What I don't want, is I don't want to see her as a villain. I've always liked Catwoman better as a sort of antihero than a villain.

Not new, but not mentioned in the thread yet:

Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate, a Wayne Enterprises board member. I suspect that this is actually Talia al Ghul. No real evidence, just a hunch, with everyone saying that this one has a lot of ties with Batman Begins.

Been a bunch of others cast in presumably small roles. Alon Aboutboul is playing a 'mad scientist' that many are guessing is Hugo Strange, but who knows. Matthew Modine as someone named Nixon. Brett Cullen as a judge, Chris Ellis as a priest. Tom Conti, Joey King, Daniel Sunjata, Burn Gorman, and Diego Klattenhoff are all unnamed as far as I know. If they go the Knightfall route where Bane busts open Arkham, maybe we'll get some small villain cameos in the vein of Mr. Zsasz in Batman Begins. So long as they don't actually take away from the film (and I don't think Nolan would do it if it did), I'd be fine with that.

Also, this may or may not count as spoilers:
Josh Pence cast as a young Ra's al Ghul, presumably in flashbacks.

And this DEFINITELY does. Proceed at your own risk, I almost wish I hadn't seen this:
Liam Neeson has been spotted filming scenes as well. Though it doesn't fit in with the Nolanverse, there were pictures a couple weeks ago of what might have been a Lazarus Pit

Maggie Gylenhall was so terrible in Dark Knight that I actually have little interest in ever watching it again. She virtually ruined that movie for me and that rarely ever happens to me. She just didn't fit the role and I didn't believe for 1 second that ANY 2 guys would be fighting over her let alone those 2. Some of her scenes were actually painful to watch because Bale was constantly overacting and she was worthless. I know people love that movie but I think it was one of the most overrated movies I've seen since Titanic. I just didn't drink the kool-aid and take the pencil trick out and I bet the hype would have been half of what it as.

That being said I think Anne Hathaway might really pull off Catwoman and I'm a hige fan of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and think he should fit well. Same with Tom Hardy as Bane. I'm betting this one is the best of the bunch.

This is just goddamn ridiculous. I will say that I have heard other people complain about Maggie being a weakness in the film so I can kind of understand that, but you could take the pencil trick out and still have that magnificent third act where Joker made that hostages look like the terrorists. Holy shit that was terrifying.

Bale overacting? Ok, so the voice is really obnoxious but overacting? Negro please.:tp:

I stand by my comments 100%. People can be sheep or fanboys and not see the big picture and this was totally the case with this movie.

When a movie is hyped to that degree and people pay their $20 to see the movie they always seem to say how great it was so they don't look like idiots. In this case the praise for Ledger was legendary. You guys are on facebook and whatever. It was a constant barrage of "best acting ever" type posts and when I saw the movie a week later I was shocked. It simply wasn't anywhere near as good as people said and like I said take the pencil trick out and Ledger was still great but all the swarms of praise? I think not.

And yes Bale was trying to upstage Ledger and overacted most of the movie. The party scene was just godawful. Between Bale and Gylenhall the entire thing should have been rewritten and reshot. Watch it again and tell me I'm not right.

I don't have a fucking clue what you're talking about when you say Bale is "overacting." His Bruce Wayne is pretty understated, if anything. I think he's certainly the best (live-action) Batman. I never had a problem with Gyllenhaal either; she was better than Katie Holmes at any rate.

If the movie has a flaw, it's that the pacing drags a bit in the second half and it ends up being a bit too long, but other than that I can't come up with any major criticisms. It's not only a great superhero movie, but a great crime movie as well. Get rid of the costumes and it would still be an excellent film.

The biggest problem I had with Bale would be his cadence. It was just so over the top and robotic at times. I'm a huge Christian Bale fan but his performance in that movie was forced and like I said he simply overacted. It wasn't believeable to me and scenes with he and Gylenhall were terriblly acted and drawn out. he had his moments but it seemed like MG brought out the worst in him.

We all have opinions though. I think No Country For Old Men is one of the 10 best movies ever made. That movie said more with 2 minutes of silence than most movies can say in 30 min of dialect. I know people who think it was terrible and loved The Dark Knight and while I think they're total idiots I can understand why. I liked Batman Begins slightly better than The Dark Knight because I believed it. I drank the kool-aid and it wasn't a total overhype machine. if you believed the hype TDK was twice as good as BB and there's no way that's true.

Except by matter of opinion, of course. :tp:

I've always liked Batman Begins more than Dark Knight, but that has to do a lot with Liam Neeson as Ra's al Ghul. Seeing Ra's finally make it to the big screen made that film for me, especially done by one of my favorite actors. I've never had much of a problem with Dark Knight, just always felt like the flow of Batman Begins was better, more cohesive. Like powerslave said, there's a small pacing issue in the second half, but I never felt like BB dragged for a second.

Never really considered it overacting, but I know exactly what you're talking about when you say you have problems with Bale's cadence. The way he talked as Bruce Wayne definitely evolved in TDK. Probably meant to be just a bit more high-class and refined, but ended up a bit over the top. Not a big distraction for me, though. And I don't know how you think the pencil trick equals all the acting praise for Ledger. Fact of the matter is, no one ever thought he was going to be good as the Joker, never mind as great as he ended up being. If he hadn't died, he wouldn't have received quite as much hype (plus, remember, atleast at the time of his death there was a lot of rumors and speculation initially that he had intentionally OD'd due to the dark places he had stuck his head in by immersing himself in the Joker role) but it still would have been there. The pencil trick was a fun little gag, and I know a lot of people liked it, but I don't think many, if any at all, were so crazy about TDK when it came out all due to a fifteen second magic trick.

The scene with Hines Ward running for a touchdown oblivious to the field caving in behind him was pretty awesome. And I've always liked that guy from 30 Rock to the Sun even though I can never remember his name.
