LOS ANGELES (AP) — Anne Hathaway has clawed her way into the latest Batman movie, nabbing the role of Selina Kyle and her alter ego, Catwoman.

Warner Bros. announced the casting Wednesday for Christopher Nolan’s latest film in the superhero saga, “The Dark Knight Rises.” Hathaway will appear opposite Christian Bale, who’s returning as Bruce Wayne and Batman.

The studio also announced that Tom Hardy, whom Nolan directed in last year’s “Inception,” will play one of Batman’s enemies, Bane. “The Dark Knight Rises” is slated for release on July 20, 2012.

Hathaway, an Oscar nominee for 2008′s “Rachel Getting Married,” will co-host the Academy Awards with James Franco on Feb. 27.
