Anne Hathaway Scores Catwoman Role in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

After weeks of speculation and a laundry list of supposed actresses being considered for the female lead in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, Nolan has officially announced that Anne Hathaway will play Catwoman in the next Batman movie.  Thoughts?  For one, she’s hot, which is more than you can say about Maggie Gyllenhaal who was in ‘The Dark Knight’.  Can she play a bada*s though?  Not too sure on that one, but I guess we’ll have to wait for the Summer of 2012 to find out.
