Re: The Dark Knight to have a female villain?

Female character, Lapis, and the Batman films take severely failing grades on Bechdel, so it's almost a given that female character = love interest for Batman.

That said, I've never felt Catwoman has to be a romantic interest for Batman. In a Nolan film she can work as a counterpoint to his viewpoint in much the way the male villains Ra's and the Joker did for the last two films, and they did that without any noticeable sexual frission (alternative readings aside.)

Of course. That's why I find it so mystifying that anyone here would get all hurt and whiny about Ras being an eco-terrorist.
I wouldn't characterise my stance as whiny. It was just an apt quip.
