Anne Hathaway is going to be a very busy woman this year.

Along with the recent news that Anne will be a guest star on Glee, Warner Brothers announced Wednesday that the Love and Other Drugs star has been casted as the new Catwoman, aka Selina Kyle, in the upcoming batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises."

The company also announced that Tom Hardy will play the beefy villain Bane, best known for breaking Batman's back in the comics.

We're used to seeing Anne star in fun, romantic comedies, like The Princess Diaries, The Devil Wears Prada and Wedding Wars, so I think it'll be interesting to see if she can pull off the seductive crime-fighting character.

The movie is set to come out in July 2012. What do you think of Anne being the next Catwoman? Who was your favorite actress as Catwoman in previous Batman films?
