Like many of you, I couldn't be more excited about Christopher Nolan's third Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. I love reporting news about the film because it's great to see the project develop piece by piece. But you should notice that I said "news," not "rumors." Because Nolan is so talented at keeping his lips sealed, very little we hear about the production can be confirmed, but, at the same time, unless it's completely outlandish, you can't skip it just in case it might be true. This is one of those stories.
Movie Web recently caught up with Australian actress Teresa Palmer and asked her about the upcoming Caped Crusader film, as she was once attached to play Talia al Ghul in the never-made Justice League of America movie and the possibility that the character might show up in the upcoming film. Her answer was fairly surprising.
So does this mean that Talia al Ghul will be one of the main female characters in The Dark Knight Rises? As was reported a couple weeks back, the film is said to have two main female roles, one a villain and one a romantic interest. What's kind of hard to tell in the quotes, however, is if Palmer is talking specifically about the one character or one of the female roles in general. She goes on to say,
but it's hard to nail down exactly what "that role" means. Also, how would she know that the role is in the film when none of us do? It's a lot more likely that Palmer is merely interested in one of the female leads in the film, not specifically one that she almost played in a movie that didn't happen. It would be interesting to see Talia al Ghul in the film considering Nolan's series began with Talia's father, Ra's al Ghul (Liam Neeson), as the villain in Batman Begins, but who knows? It's all just speculation.
