Wasn't Julie Madison the character played by Elle McPherson in Batman & Robin? That alone makes me think that those rumours have to be untrue.
As I said, Julie Madison was Bruce Wayne's first love interest in the comics, way back in 1939-41. The character McPherson played in B&R was based on her.
I did see your earlier post - but I was asking about that movie specifically, not the old comics
. My suspicion is that Nolan will want to avoid anything that appeared in B&R.
I agree that it would make more sense to have Silver StCloud (crap name notwithstanding) or Vicki Vale in the movie.
