We know The Dark Knight Rises will include Anne Hathaway as Catwoman and Tom Hardy as Bane, but what will these villains be getting up to in the film? Christopher Nolan has been keeping plot details to himself, however a source got in touch with Badass Digest and revealed some pretty big things regrading who and what Batman will be facing this time round.
As she herself confirmed, Anne Hathaway will be Catwoman in the movie. I can’t tell you what role she has in the beginning, but by the end of the story Catwoman isn’t a villain but rather an ally of Batman. And who are they teaming up to take out?
The League of Shadows.
Headed by Talia Al’Ghul. With Bane, who is her muscle/possible love interest. And with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in tow. Is he playing Black Mask? My source didn’t know, but did know that Levitt is certainly an antagonist and involved with the League of Shadows.”
Following on from this Batman-On-Film.com posted on their Facebook page that this plot summary is indeed true:
“FYI: Some TDKR details have leaked. I know that they are true because I’ve known about it for a few weeks now.”
The League of Shadows was a group of vigilante ninjas led by Ra’s al Ghul (Liam Neeson) in Batman Begins. It looks like his daughter Talia Al’Ghul (who may be played by Marion Cotillard) is out for revenge.
What do you think of these plot details?
