Batman The Dark Knight Rises: Catwoman, Bane, Talia al Ghul and the League of Shadows?



Rumors, abound and spoilers, ahoy!

We just learned that Anne Hathaway will, indeed, be playing Catwoman.

Now, word comes from BadAssNews that Catwoman will start off the movie as a villain and by the end, become an ally of Batman.

Together they will attempt to take down - The League of Shadows.

According to the source, Talia al Ghul, daughter of Ra's al Ghul, will be the leader with Bane, played by Tom Hardy, as her muscle.

Also cited, is that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be part of The League - but the role is not known.

We saw The League of Shadows in Batman: Begins with Ra's al Ghul and Bruce training in the moutains. After Ra's al Ghul was defeated, it was unknown what became of The League - we just might now!

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christan Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane and Ane Hathaway as Selina Kyle.
