The announcement of the latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, has got a lot of people excited, especially as Anne Hathaway has been cast as the feline fighter Catwoman. There has been a lot of discussion in the LocateTV office this morning - is Anne Hathaway right for the role? (Well anyone can be better than Halle Berry - sorry H.B. fans!) So we've come up with a few possible replacements in case Miss Hathway decides to pull out.

Check out some of our shortlists on who should be Catwoman? Plus we've love to hear some of your suggestions too.

So who else will be in the new Batman movie? So far only a few cast members have been confirmed. Christian Bale is returning as the comic caped crusader. The regulars, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox and Michael Caine as Alfred will be reprising their roles. Plus another big announcement is that Tom Hardy will be playing Bane.

I cannot wait until this 3rd installment by Christoper Nolan is released, which will be sometime in 2012!  In the mean time, why not make your own Best of Batman shortlist and keep up-to-date on all of the goss on Twitter: Catwoman, Anne Hathaway

  1. She'll have to go some to be better than Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman. And, stop slagging off Halle Berry! Catwoman was a hugely enjoyable, fun film. It was never going to win an Oscar and never had any pretentions of doing so. Berry's performance was entirely on a par with everyone else in the film but you never hear anyone throwing mud at Sharon Stone or Lambert Wilson!

  2. Graham, are you kidding me!? Halle Berry's Catwoman is one of the worst films ever made. I will agree with you, the lions share of the blame for the atrocity does not lie with Berry, who did her best with what must have been next to no direction against a pure green-screen wall. That said, we assume she did read the script before accepting the job and should have realised at that point that the film was never going to be even remotely acceptable as a piece of contemporary cinema.
