French Newspaper reckons Marion Cotillard is in The Dark Knight Rises
We’d previously told you that Joseph Gordon Levitt was rumoured for Christopher Nolan’s last Batman film and now he and Tom Hardy may be joined by another Inception cast member.Le Figaro, one of France’s largest newspapers, are reporting that Marion Cotillard will be joining the film’s growing cast. A rough Google translation is quoted as saying.
Marion Cotillard in “Batman 3″. The actress, who is expecting a child in the spring with Guillaume Canet, will be scarce this year. She’ll do a single film and her choice fell on Batman 3. This blockbuster produced by Warner Bros.. enables her to work with the director Christopher Nolan, with whom she had turned very successful sci-fi Inception. Marion Cotillard will join the filming this summer in Los Angeles. She will share the bill with Anne Hathaway.
Now this is still a rumour of course but it if it’s true then it does give the casting an interesting twist. There are supposed to be two female characters in the film, one being a villain and the other a love interest. Now we’ve assumed until now that Anne Hathaway would be playing Catwoman, but could it be possible that role is going to Cotillard? We’ve seen her as an antagonist in Inception so maybe Nolan thinks she’s the one who can play Catwoman. On the other hand, Hathaway could still be Catwoman, and Cotillard is the love interest. Another rumour is that Talia Al Ghul will be the second female character and that fits in the Nolanverse, given her father was a villain in the first film. Just like Levitt though, it’s still just a rumour for now.
