Casting Rumors

We come to bury the Dark Knight Rises casting rumors, not to praise them. It’s true, though. They’re dead – killed by the official announcement that Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy would be playing Selina Kyle and Bane respectively. For those who knew the rumors best, they were a source of comfort in an uncertain time. Although, even though they almost always made us laugh, the rumors were like a madman, cropping up every few months and chaotically cutting through the banal everyday like a breath of fresh hurricane. Now that those casting rumors are dead, let’s fondly and somberly look back at our favorites.


Apparently the role in the forthcoming David Fincher film is a highly sought-after prize. Which actresses actually fit the bill?



For some reason I have to write the word ‘Bilbo’ a ton in this post, and it feels slightly gross. Luckily, I don’t have to write “Ryan Reynolds Cast as Bilbo Baggins,” so that’s a relief.


Vanessa Hudgens. Alive.

Hilariously misleading headlines have led to more than a few people believing not only in the young actress’s demise, but that it happened three years ago. Turns out, it’s just graphic novel adaptation casting, baby.


Would Rachel Weisz Make a Good Cat Woman?

Rachel Weisz as Cat Woman? Robert Pattinson as The Joker? Is anyone taking this seriously?


It turns out the star might not be interested in ripping half his face off to play an obscure comic book character. That’s right, Hex fans, I said ‘obscure.’


Boiling Point: Actors Are Not Casting Directors

Beyoncé is throwing her name in the arena for the Wonder Woman movie. Luckily, today is Monday which means I’ve got dibs on going insane over this before Kevin can proclaim WTF?
