Marion Cotillard opens up about her much rumored The Dark Knight Rises role and we have the details.
If you caught a glimpse of the latest trailer for The Dark Knight Rises - and let's be honest, we know you did - then you probably got a glimpse of actress Marion Cotillard's Miranda Tate liplocking with Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne. Other than playing a love interest for Mr. Wayne and working for Wayne Enterprises in some capacity, little has been officially revealed about how Miranda Tate fits into the world of Christopher Nolan's Batman.
We do know that the character of Miranda Tate does not appear in the DC Comics and has been created specifically for the film. With the reveal that Liam Neeson will be reprising his role as "Ra's Al Ghul" from Batman Begins in what will most likely be some kind of flashback scene, rumors quickly emerged that Cotillard would in fact be playing Ra's daughter, Talia Al Ghul. Possibly taking on a fake name in order to get close to Bruce Wayne and seek revenge for her father's death.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Cotillard addressed these rumors and denied them stating that she does NOT secretly play Talia. She described Miranda Tate as an ecologically minded businesswoman who, "is fascinated by Wayne Enterprises. They go through difficulties, and she wants to help provide the world clean energies. She's a good guy." She also insists that Miranda stays a good guy throughout the film.
So that puts an end to the Talia rumors, right? Probably not. Her description of Miranda doesn't quite explain set photos that seem to show her in cahoots with Bane and his men. Even appearing to be jumping into one of his camouflaged Tumblers at one point. So what do you think? Can we take her word that Miranda Tate is just who she says she is or do you think there's more to the role and perhaps she still could be Talia Al Ghul in disquise?
