Leak Sauce #9 The Dark Knight Rises

Leaking info to you and bringing the discussion.

The Dark Knight Rises is the third and final installment in Christopher Nolan's outstanding trilogy of Batman movies. While the scheduled release date for the film isn't until July 2012, there are plenty of facts to discuss. Arguably the most exciting news to be confirmed is two cast members and exactly what characters they'll be playing. Just take a look below.

Catwoman will be played by Anne Hathaway

Who is Catwoman you ask? Selina Kyle (Catwoman) is a femme fatale who happens to be a thief and occasional anti-hero. She and Batman typically have flirtatious (and sometimes even romantic) encounters throughout their run-ins and that would lead many to believe this may be the case yet again in the upcoming movie.

After the events of The Dark Knight, Batman has had to step into the shadows to avoid capture from the police now that he's taken the credit for Harvey "Two-Face" Dent's murders. Rumor has it that Catwoman steps up to be a vigilante in Batman's stead and this draws him out of his seclusion.

Bane will be played by Tom Hardy

Who is Bane you ask? A strategist and intelligent foe (regardless of what some media may have led you to believe in the past) who is one of the few that can stand up to Batman in hand to hand combat. Seeing as he'll be played by Tom Hardy, we can almost be assured this version of Bane will lean more to his strategist nature and could possibly be an expert fighter. I highly doubt we'll see a hulking version of Tom Hardy stomping around and I'm sure Nolan will breathe new life into this character.

This is Kylak signing out and stepping into the shadows to wait for over a year. I may need to bring snacks.


  1. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT, final installment?! Sadfaceeee. I like Nolan's version of Batman though and I want him to continue. Hell, he can have 50 movies all about Batman if he keeps it up.

    It will be very interesting to have Anne Hathaway play Catwoman and Tom Hardy as Bane. Excitement!

  2. 50 Movies indeeeeed. I am in full agreement. Other good news: Nolan will be heavily involved with the next Superman movie. He won't be directing but he's created the story and will help guide the film with his vision. First good Superman movie? Gasp!

  3. I'm looking forward to this! Also, hopefully it will be a good superman.

  4. Hmm, this has the makings to be yet another great movie. It will be nice to see a version of Bane thats not similar to the Hulk : P

  5. @ Opee
    If Nolan can't pull it off then we're in trouble.

    @ James
    I agree 100%. Finally a Bane that isn't just a walking bicep with a mask on.

  6. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is going to be in the movie too. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS :D! Cobra Commander/Arthur!

  7. I know right? I'm waiting for them to confirm what character he'll be cast as before I edit this post.

  8. Sounds like a great idea. I wonder who he's going to play though. . . it's quite tough to guess personally.

    I feel like a slacker, haha. I have no idea where my illustration classmates/people are. Too bad I don't know any of them well enough to ask.

  9. There are many guesses but there's no telling as of yet who he might play.

    Such a slacker. Tsk, tsk.

  10. Whoever he plays, I hope it's a really neat-o character :3.

  11. Great point. He deserves to have a significant role or at least play a character that the viewers find interesting and I'm actually pretty confident that he will.
