The Dark Knight had a huge cultural impact on the audience and its sequel was one of the most anticipated films ever. Hence, Christopher Nolan and his teammates had to keep every small detail about The Dark Knight Rises under the wraps. With The Dark Knight’s Joker aka late actor Heath Ledger’s demise, many fans anticipated the inclusion of a character similar to Harley Quinn to make up for Joker’s presence. Hence, it comes in as no surprise that even Anne Hathaway fell into this thinking.

Zoë Kravitz of X-Men: First Class fame will be reprising the role of Catwoman in the 2021 Batman movie. However, similar to The Dark Knight Rises, there has been no news about what is in store for fans in the movie. Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame will be stepping into the shoes of Batman this time.
