Christopher Nolan Almost Didn't Include Bane and Catwoman in "The Dark Knight Rises"

Vulture caught up with The Dark Knight Rises screenwriter David Goyer at the premiere of the film, where he divulged a piece of trivia we probably would have been better off not knowing: Apparently, it took some convincing to get Christopher Nolan to include characters Bane (Tom Hardy) and Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) - a.k.a., Catwoman - in the film.

"Bane is actually a cool character ... it's just some of the depictions have been kind of cheesy...I'm not going to say which ones, but when I first suggested him to Chris, he said, 'Really?' And I said, 'Put all that aside, and boil down his origin,' and Tom just did an amazing, amazing job," said Goyer. And Catwoman? "For Catwoman, there was a little trepidation at the beginning, and once we started with the story, her motivations worked really well in this movie in how she functions as a character, as a representative of the 99 percent, which is unique in the story we're telling."

The Dark Knight Rises will be released on July 20th.
