The Dark knight Rises – Catwoman
Plot: “Eight years after The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to the limits, forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent.”
They branded Batman an enemy, but now they’re really going to need him back because Bane is a damned evil demon! :)

Waiting for him is the mysterious Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) and Bane (Tom Hardy), a lethal adversary on a crusade to tear apart Batmans legacy piece by piece.”
So what about Selina Kyle aka Catwoman: friend, foe or frenemy of Batman? :)

Bane was born in the fictional Caribbean Republic of Santa Prisca, in a prison called Pena Dura (“Hard Rock”). When his father escaped from prison, the boy was forced to serve out his father’s life sentence, and thus Bane’s childhood and early adult life are spent in the amoral penitentiary environment. Though imprisoned, he’s eager to develop his natural abilities, reads as many books as he can get his hands on, builds up his body in the prison’s gym, and learns to fight in the merciless school of prison life. Bane ultimately establishes himself as the “king” of Pena Duro prison. The prison’s controllers take note and eventually force him to become a test subject for a mysterious drug known as Venom, which had killed all other subjects. It nearly kills him at first, but he survives and finds the drug vastly increases his physical strength, although he needs to take it every 12 hours (via a system of tubes pumped directly into his brain) or he would suffer debilitating side-effects. Years later, Bane escapes Pena Duro. His ambition turns to destroying Batman, whom he had heard tales of while serving his sentence. He is fascinated with Gotham City because, like the prison, it is a place where fear rules: in this case, fear of Batman. Bane is convinced that the demonic bat that haunted his dreams since childhood is a representation of the Batman.
Actor Tom Hardy got the role as Bane. You may remember his performance in the movie Bronson:
Is Bane the right foe for Batman in the Dark Knight Rises? And is Tom Hardy fit for the job? Share your thoughts below! :)
“We want the look and feel of the film to be faithful to what has come before in the first two films,” he said. “There was a large canvas and operatic sweep to ‘The Dark Knight’ and we want to make a film that will carry on with that look and feel […] Our ambition for the third movie is to complete a story that has begun. This is not starting over, this is not rebooting. We’re finishing something, and keeping a consistency with what’s come before has real value.”
Director Christopher Nolan
Well, I don’t mind if the Dark Knight Rises, but I want to watch it in IMAX! :)
Director Christopher Nolan recently talked about the movie Batman 3 and he ruled out two potential villains saying that their costumes are too fancy: neither Mr Freeze nor the Penguin will show up. Christopher Nolan also dismissed the Joker’s character in Batman 3, he said he wouldn’t feel comfortable (because Heath Ledger passed away)…
There’s no official plot yet for Batman 3, we don’t even know who’s going to be the next villain, but at least we now have a release date: the movie Batman 3 is set to be released on July 20, 2012. Well that’s the studios’ tentative schedule. So it may change… :)
Scriptwriter David Goyer has left the TV series Flash Forward (what a useless show!) to work again with Jonathan Nolan (Christopher Nolan’s brother) on the the script of Batman 3. It hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, but Director Christopher Nolan will most likely direct Batman 3 and should start to work on this third Batman movie once Inception is released in Summer 2010. So David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan don’t have to rush to write the script.
