Well from the choice that they had I have to say she seemed the best one.

Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively, Charlize Theron, Vera Farmiga and Keira Knightley were considered for the lead female role.

Okay, out of those, I've gotta agree Hathaway is the best choice. I think she's gonna be good; Nolan's films aren't exactly known for bad acting or anything.

Of those I'd have opted for Naomi Watts without any question...

...but I do have to add one thing before I end this post.

Vera Farmiga? Catwoman material or not...meee-yow.

I agree Chicken. I would have rather have Naomi Watts in there. She is an amazing actor and I reckon would be able to pull off a better Catwoman the Anne could, but I'm sure it would be good either way.

Talk about your buzzkills. Cat Woman might be interesting, but Bane is definitely my least favorite Batman villain. Still, with Chris Nolan directing and the brilliant Tom Hardy playing the part, I'm sure they'll do something worthwhile with it.

Naomi Watts is a great actress (definitely more proven than Anna Hathaway) but I can't really see her as Cat Woman. They were considering the girl who played Vesper in Casino Royale to play the part as well, weren't they? She seemed like the perfect fit. Oh well. After the Dark Knight, I really can't question Nolan's casting choices.

I was hoping for The Riddler, as they could make a pretty good story out of it, but this doesn't seem too bad. Now I'm interested to hear about what this story will be like.

My hopes were pinned on seeing either Dr Strange, The Riddler, Black Mask or Hush appear, which looks out of the question now (At least in a role larger than some Cameo). Still, the inclusion of Bane is a pleasant surprise to me and I wouldn't mind seeing a Nolan version of Catwoman, should be a great film :)

I was hoping that he would use Killer Croc.

That would have been good.

I dont know when I first heard that Heath Ledger was going to be Joker I though no way thats a bad choice. But after his brilliant performance in Dark Knight hes is by second favorite Joker right behind Mark Hamill. So who knows maybe Anne Hathaway will be the same.

Personally I think she would have made a good Harley Quinn who I was really hoping was going to be in this one.

Fan reactions:
Heath Ledger's casting: "Heath Ledger? What? Really? This will be terrible!"
Movie: "Holy crap, Heath Ledger as Joker was frickin' awesome! Best movie ever!"

Fan reactions:
Anne Hathaway's casting and Bane's reveal: "Anne Hathaway and Bane? What? Really? This will be terrible!"

I trust Nolan to make them work. Bane will be a bit of a challenge though.

Despite any nude scenes she's had lately, it's hard for me to imagine Anne being a villainess. Maybe It's remembering her in the Princess DIary movies and The Devil Wears Prada. She just seems like too much of a good girl. Then again, Michelle Pfeiffer's Selina Kyle was a good girl in the beginning, before taking a bit of a tumble, courtesy of Max Shreck. You've gotta wonder if Selina will have a similar transformation this time. One given is that Anne will be lovely (to put it mildly) in the trademark catsuit, however different it may be from past versions.

I'm one of those who was skeptical about Ledger as Joker and he was just awe-inspiring. Topped Jack's Joker by far and earned that posthumous Oscar (wish he could've lived to have his Joker recognized as maybe the best villain since Darth Vader). We'll see if Anne surprises as well.

One other given: Nolan will do better by Bane than Joel Schumacher did.

I was the same way when they announced Heath as Joker. I was used to stuff like Roar and The Patriot I just couldnt picture Heath doing a psychopathic villain like the Joker. Once he did though he proved the he could do a villain as good as he could the pretty boy hero. Perhaps the same will happen with Anne.

Hmmm, i'm defnitiely in "wait and see" mode.

I certainly dig Anne Hathaway -- and as far as being a villaness, i'm betting Nolan will go with the more "tweener" version of Selina that's become her more common depiction over the last decade+ or so, where she's not exactly an enemy of Bats, but not an ally. And i wonder if we'll see full-on Catwoman throughout the film or if it'll be more Selina-oriented, like what Nolan did with Two-Face, where he was Harvey for the majority of his screen time in TDK.

I'm not that keen on Bane as a villan, but i have confidence in Nolan & Co. that they'll present a good interpretation; so again, a "wait and see" approach.

Hush would have been good, but i think it would have felt forced; if they had introduced Tommy Elliot in an earlier film, then it'd be different.

Not too hard to find, but probably best not to link to 'em here; family-friendly board and all. ;)

I'm not Link. I am Error. ;) Seriously, I'm going to have to do some "research" myself on that. I keep reading today that with this news that Anne's been nekkid a lot lately! Wouldn't know, as I don't really follow her. But, being a good looking brunette, it's worth finding out!!!

Anne Hathaway? The girl who's going to play Kurt's lesbian aunt on the song and dance dramedy Glee? I hope Christopher Nolan works some of that into the new Catwoman character.

There's no way they'll ever replace Michelle pfeiffer as Catwoman. Then again I once thought the same about Jack Nicholson as the Joker but Honestly heath Ledger did a pretty good job. I still have have fond memories of the 1989 original Batman movie though. I was just ten years old then and at that age Batman was my favorite thing ever. The newer Batman series is cool and all but I think Tim Burton's movies had the better style.

I'm not sure I'd call "Love and Other Drugs" a film...more like a series of poorly executed rom-com cliches crudely assembled into something vaguely resembling an actual movie.

In other words, it's a typical modern day romantic comedy. ;)
