And Batman's Next Foes Are...

Warner Brothers just announced the casting for Christopher Nolan's next chapter in the batman  films - The Dark Knight Rises.

Christian Bale of course returns as Batman. Wouldn't be awesome if he made Bruce Wayne kind of like Dicky Ward in The Fighter?

Ann Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle (aka Cat Woman) and Thomas Hardy will be playing the hyper-steroidal Bane.

Nolan will direct the film from a screenplay he wrote with Jonathan Nolan, from a story by Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer.

It's set to open July 12th, 2012. Listen, can you hear the drooling of fanboys everywhere?
