    I think that would have been a good idea, although I don't know if Kunis was ever up for the role.

    Still, Hathaway is by no means a bad choice.

    I would call Anne Hathaway "beautiful". Not quite in a traditional way, but still beautiful. Sexy however? No. Catwoman should be sexy, seductive, and a bit bad-ass. Anne doesn't fulfill that role.

    Black Swan helped me see Kunis as a serious actress, but I am still not convinced.

    And I am still on the fence on Anne H being Catwoman, but at least she can hold her own in the movie. I can see Kunis being overshadowed my the rest of the cast.

    Batman begins had two villains: Scarecrow and Ra's Al Ghul
    Fair.
    Not really, though. Scarecrow was in it for 3 seconds, and Two Face was really not an antagonist. He spent 99% of the film as Harvey Dent, a good guy. The Joker was the clear lead villain and antagonist of the film.
    Interesting point, though I don't see how a character as one-dimensional as Bane can sustain a movie as the lead villain. So I would bet that Catwoman is on the main stage.

    How is Bane one-dimensional?

    Dude literally found out who Batman is, deviced a plan, made his way into the Batcave and broke Batmans back. Like I said before, don't be blinded by what they did to him in Batman & Robin movie. There is more to him than getting roided up and smashing everything in sight.

    The title of this film is near tragic. The movie should have been called The Batman. The fact it's called Dark Knight Rises tells me the marketing folks already have their hands all over this one and are looking to play off the success of The Dark Knight to no end.

    You may think this sounds silly but many movies get their titles because they are less "confusing" to people or ensure people know it's a sequel. Take the sadly named "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps". As soon as I heard that was the title I knew it was going to be garbage and this was confirmed after watching it for 15 minutes. Same thing with The Last Airbender. It was supposed to be called Avatar: The Last Airbender, but the marketing people thought the public might be confused. They must really think the general public is stupid.

    Releasing a movie with "Avatar:" in the title would have the lawyers out in milliseconds. Your point about that was awful.

    Probably not given that "Avatar: The Last Airbender" has been around a helluva lot longer than Avatar.

    Yes, except the average layperson has no idea what A:TLA is. They would assume, wrongly, that it was associated with the James Cameron Avatar. I've seen copyright suits won for a lot less.

    What? With it publicly known that Nolan will be directing and co-writing again, they could name this "Batmans Shit his Pants" and people will still see it and probably break records. You're just looking for a reason to hate the damn movie.

    Nolan should have looked at Melissa George or Amanda Peet for the part of Catwoman. Also, do they have to retire the Joker? Why couldn't someone like Joseph Gordon-Levitt take it on? Better yet, give it to Gary Oldman. Ol' rubber face can do the lot. There's a part in Interstate 60 where he does the face, it's effortless. I'd have given him the role of The Joker from the start and allowed him to do whatever the hell he wanted with it.

    I seriously doubt anyone would really want that role, they would be living in Ledger's shadow.
