The Dark Knight Rises - Casting So Far

The Dark Knight Rises, the 3rd and final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman series is scheduled to release on summer of 2012.

On October 27, 2010, Nolan confirmed that the title of the film will be The Dark Knight Rises.

Director - Christopher Nolan
Screenplay - David S. Goyer and Jonathan Nolan

Casting as it is expected

Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne

Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth
Gary Oldman as James Gordon
Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox
Nestor Carbonell as Mayor Anthony Garcia

Tom Hardy as Bane

Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman

Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty under the command of Commissioner Gordon.   [Alberto Falcone/Holiday Killer]

Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate, an employee of Bruce Wayne. Miranda is a socialite and a Wayne Enterprises board member who wishes to help Wayne continue his father’s philanthropic deeds. Or she is Talia-al-Gul in disguise?

Juno Temple as a streetwise Gotham girl expected to be Holly Robinson, sidekick to Catwoman.

Josh Pence as a young Ra’s in 30 years earlier flashback

Daniel Sunjata as a ‘special forces operative’

Diego Klattenhoff as a rookie cop

Burn Gorman ?

Music by Hans Zimmer [He told music will be iconic and epic! ]

Some Rumors, which are never TRUE 
Ellen Page as Poison Ivy
Eddie Murphy as the Riddler
Jack Black as Black Mask
Robin Williams as Hugo Strange

April end reports TDKR will be shot in Jodhpur India. It sparks the speculation of TDKR's plot - to include return of The League of Shadows and early days of Ra-al-Gul!
But at the same time Mission Impossible IV was shot in Mumbai (the film stars Anil Kapoor) as TOI reports. Is it MI4 or TDKR to be shot in Jodhpur?

Can you remember Rory's First Kiss the working title of The Dark Knight? The 3rd movie will also be shooting under the alternate titles 'Magnus Rex' and 'Fox Hills Green' to keep prying eyes away from the set.
I expect Nolan will change the title of the final film. TDKR is a boring title!
