Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman, in ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’ Which, judging by the picture above, is a good thing. Though, another bout with The Joker would’ve been better. Add in Harley Quinn, perfect.

Bane will also be in the movie.

So, that’s cool. Like, ‘Batman and Robin’ cool.

Here’s the official statement, via Deadline.com:
