Batman: Dark Knight Rises continues to add more star power to its already impressive cast with the recent addition of Josh Pence (The Social Network) as a young Ra’s Al Ghul. The rest of the confirmed cast includes: Christian Bale back in his role of Batman, Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Alberto Falcone, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Caine as Alfred, and Katie Holmes as Elaine Dawes.
In addition to the stellar confirmed cast there have also been rumors that Marion Cotillard and Juno Temple (Atonement) will also star in the film. With such a high-powered cast it's hard to tell at this point who the stand out will be. Also, with so many characters I'm not sure how much screen time any one person in particular will actually get. Christopher Nolan will have his hands full directing such a large cast to create a cohesive plot line.
Batman: Dark Knight Rises is set to begin filming this May to continue through November. The film is slated to premiere on July 20, 2012. Are you looking forward to this Batman sequel?
