Irrational hate, as a cat hates a dog

There are some actors I love (Ewan McGregor, Cate Blanchett), and exactly two that I hate with the fires of a thousand suns.

Unfortunately, those two are in positions to detract from my enjoyment of superhero films. Mark Ruffalo is playing Bruce Banner in The Avengers and Anne Hathaway is playing Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises. I have no real reasoning for my loathing of these actors; they're pretty innocuous, really--neither is extremely talented, but neither is extremely UNtalented, either. I just really, really don't like them.

And I swear if Hathaway fucks up Selina (or if Nolan does) I'm suing someone. I don't know who, but someone. Because I love that character and Hathaway does NOT have the swagger to pull her off correctly and Nolan doesn't exactly have a shining record of awesome female characters. I don't care much one way or the other about Banner/the Hulk: my annoyance at Ruffalo's presence will hopefully be a sidebar to the rest of the film, and The Avengers frankly has a lot more to worry about than whether Ruffalo is right for the part of Banner. But DKR is srs bsns. I'm a Batfan and a Catfan and I want Selina done right.

Ok, ok, I'm just a worried nerd. But come on--don't you just want to punch these people in their grinning faces?

I am not a huge fan of her either I hope she makes a better catwoman than the last movie which was terrible and I could not watch all the way through.On another note Cate Blanchett rocks she is wonderful.
