The latest and last installment to Christopher Nolan's bat-films is one of the most anticipated CBM's ever, and is sure to meet the demands of both the box office and the audience. The film revolves around the deadly Bane's evil plot to have Gotham City consumed by mass destruction and criminality. Bruce Wayne has to step up as the Batman once again after eight long years to thwart Bane's plot as well as the thieving havoc that is sure to follow with Catwoman. The film sees an ensemble cast including Marion Cotillard who recently gave Empire a very brief explanation as to what her role is all about. There has been much speculation that she is actually Talia Al Ghul, the daughter of Liam Neeson's Ra's Al Ghul, the villain in the first film. It seems however that she continues to shoot down these rumors, claiming that her role is of better intentions. Check it out below.

From Cotillard
Miranda is fascinated by Wayne Enterprises. They go through difficulties, and she wants to help provide the world clean energies. She's a good guy. I cannot say much - but I kiss him.


It seems that she is really intent on giving her role away as a good one, but for that we still can't be sure, because she could always be simply hiding her true intentions for the surprise in the film that is traditional of Christopher Nolan to do in his films. Sound off with your thoughts below.



The Dark Knight Rises will be unleashed in theaters later this July, and stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Tom hardy, Ann Hathaway, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and is directed by Christopher Nolan(The Prestige, Insomnia, Inception).



The Dark Knight Rises is an upcoming superhero film directed by Christopher Nolan, who co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Jonathan Nolan and the story with David S. Goyer. Based on the DC Comics character Batman, the film will be the third installment in Nolan's Batman film series, and is a sequel to Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008). The Dark Knight Rises is intended to be the conclusion of the series. It stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman. The film will take place eight years after the events of The Dark Knight and will introduce the characters of Selina Kyle and Bane—portrayed by Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy, respectively—two villains from the Batman mythology.

Yeah, I DO think the two main actresses should have switched roles (considering Miranda Tate might NOT be Talia) but I think it'll turn out for the best since I really, really liked the TV Spots focusing on Catwoman. Seemed like they got her down.

Just saw the amazing spiderman. Norman Osborn is mentioned (2 or 3 times) in the movie but you can't really see him (face on an ad/billboard) & he talks to Curt Conners (Post Credit-Scene) in a dark prison cell. He is played my Michael Massee.

cbm.com spoiled the cameo of scarecrow in th dark knight rises and the the wolverine cameo in first class, they ruined the surprise effect! so that's my revenge.

Please don't put Spoilers in the headline / main site than i will never do this again.

@IcemanX

What about the rumor that Christopher waltz was supposed to be Osbourne, did u get the feeling that couldve been him in the post credits scene talking to Connors?
Wildaniel - 6/30/2012, 7:56 PM
Im guessing she is undercover going by the name Miranda Tate, but we all know she really is Talia. Its gonna be a great scene when she finds out Bruce is Batman, lol, hope that happens.
mgeoff88 - 6/30/2012, 8:15 PM
I think she's just trying to be a professional actress by not spoiling her role in the film.

Joey King already let the cat out of the bag though.

Also, the set pictures of her in Tibetan garb, and walking around with Bane's henchman is damning evidence.

@Wildaniel That's what I'm thinking too. I wonder how Bruce will explain to Talia about what happened to her father.

They're going to make Damian....

If there's no big reveal that she is not Miranda Tate nand is actually Talia or Nyssa or someone else, then Nolan is the biggest douchebag on the planet for not completely debunking this rumor. I really don't think she is Talia, after all, I mean this rumour started before we knew anything about the film. We were all saying Talia and Black Mask and The Riddler and Hugo Strange. Then Nolan put the kibosh on Riddler and Marion Cotilard and JGL were announced as having roles and the whole internet went "Talia and Black Mask!!!", then it was revealed that they weren't those character's and we still all thought they would be revealed to be Talia and Black Mask/Nightwing in some kinda twist. Now, none of us still believe that JGL will be anyone other than John Blake, but everyone's still calling out Talia. WTF?
It would be a huge coincidence if we all knew that Talia was in the movie before the movie waseven written, wouldn't it? So I just think this is an out-of-control rumor and we're all gonna be wondering why the Hell we were all so damn convinced that Cottilard was playing Talia when all along we were being told that she is not and that she is Miranda Tate. And we're gonna think a whole lot less of Nolan for letting us all believe this for so long.
DukeAcureds - 7/1/2012, 3:06 AM
Or we'll just think a whole lot less of Nolan for completley raping Batman in a way that makes Schumacher's campy version much more preferable. And we'll wonder how he could ever have been so audaciuos and full of himself that he thought hecould just do whatever the hell he wanted with such an important franchise. Then we'll remember that it was us that swelled his head so big in the first place and made him think he was a god and infallible. And we will weep.

@BANE5000 No, that wasn't the voice of Christoph Waltz. It was Michael Massee, but like I said before you never see his face clearly, it's very dark. Perhaps the producers/director will replace Michael Massee with another actor in the sequel.
MrReese - 7/1/2012, 7:41 AM
If shes Talia wouldn't she already know he's Bats? It would just be a revenge plot with the twist being maybe she falls in love with Bruce & in the end [frick]s Bane over.But she is definitely Talia. X)

@IcemanX does Spidey take on a Lizard army??

"Miranda is fascinated by Wayne Enterprises. They go through difficulties, and she wants to help provide the world clean energies. She's a good guy. "


Cool Story, TALIA
Supes17 - 7/1/2012, 8:41 AM
I'm pretty sure that either Talia or Catwoman will die...
Fantine - 7/1/2012, 9:06 AM
Catwoman will die, for sure. She will double cross Batman after helping him to get Bane, eventually leading him into Banes trap. She then will be killed correcting the error of her ways, by fighting with Batman.

Taila is defiantly in the movie. They wouldnt cast an Oscar winning actress in a little bit part, and she wouldnt be credited on the poster if she had a small part as Marion says.
IgnurRant - 7/1/2012, 12:27 PM
What if... Nolan anticipated all the speculation on Marion being Talia but really a whole nother actress is playing Talia. Mind Fahk.
mastr07 - 7/1/2012, 3:14 PM
