Warner Brother announced the cast of the new Batman movie today.

She will star alongside Christian Bale, who’s returning as Bruce Wayne and Batman. Tom Hardy will be playing one of Batman’s enemies.
“She definitely has the [acting] chops. She can ‘go there’ with this role. Obviously, Chris [Nolan] sees something in her that’s fantastic that we haven’t seen or have seen … plus Hathaway has longevity, a steady career arc and growth in appearing in big films.”
The movie will hit theatres in July 2012.
