Director Christopher Nolan has confirmed who the villains will be in the third installment of his Batman series, “The Dark Knight Rises”.

Playing the villain BANE will be actor, Tom Hardy, who you might know from his recent performance in Christopher Nolan’s film “Inception”.

Hardy, who was cast before Christmas and thought to be attatched to any number of roles, will play Bane, who – unlike the joke of a character portrayed in 1997’s Batman & Robin – is actually a genius military strategist and fearsome soldier driven insane by the super soldier serum ‘venom’.

Playing CATWOMAN will be actress, Annne Hathaway.

Catwoman has long been a fan favorite for Rises and Hathaway has been a front runner during recent casting calls.

In the comics the character is high class cat burglar of questionable moral character who forms a complex love/hate romance with Bruce Wayne/Batman.

The Dark Knight Rises is set to be released  on July 20 2012.
