Already into the 2011 New Year, the ‘Love and Other Drugs‘ star Anne Hathaway recently got her wish to be a guest star of the TV series ‘Glee‘ recently. It doesn’t stop there, as she’s now going to be in probably one of the biggest roles of her acting career. Hathaway was competing with the likes of Jessica Biel, Keira Knightley, Gemma Arterton, among others for a lead role in ‘Dark Knight Rises‘ and has won a spot in the film.

Warner Brothers has confirmed Anne Hathaway will play the role as Selina Kyle (Catwoman) and that Tom Hardy will play the role as Bane. There might be a love interest after all, as in discovered in the comics with Selina drawn to Bruce Wayne, but a enemy to Batman when roaming Gotham as the Catwoman.

Director Christopher Nolan had this to say about working with Hathaway, “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story.”

Nolan is also looking forward to working with co-star of ‘InceptionTom Hardy again. His character, Bane, is a escaped prisoner that later becomes a massively strong behemoth due to a large dosage of drugs called Vemon. Bane will definitely pose as a formidable villain and serious threat for the caped crusader like in the cartoons and comics.

Nolan has yet to reveal in regards to how Catwoman and Bane will fit into ‘Dark Knight Rises.’ In addition, casting is still taking place for someone to fill the role of Talia Al Ghul, the daughter of Ra Al Ghul. So being that there will be three villains in the upcoming Batman film, our vigilante caped hero (Christian Bale) will have his work cut out for him this time.

Dark Knight Rises‘ opens July 22, 2012.
