Re: The Dark Knight to have a female villain?

They did. I really wish something had come of that.

Remember I Am Legend? I wish Will Smith had just gone into the abandoned cineplex, salvaged the print of Petersen's Batman vs. Superman, and let us watch him watch that for two hours.

Another female character we missed is Zee!!! I doubt Zatanna would even be considered because of her magic use. Unless Nolan wanted to do a Prestige thing with her.

Zatanna- Are you watching closely............



Or the MadHater

Fan- Bruce was still in the dream!!!

Re: The Dark Knight to have a female villain?

Superman Vs Batman:Aslyum was an awful read if you've ever had a chance to read that script, another movie I'm glad didn't get made. I guess ever since "Batman: The Animated Series" tied Zee into Bruce's training that I've included her as part of the Bat-Family even though technically she isn't. Dini of course is a huge Zatanna fan as I am and played around with a possible romance in his Detective run. They both agreed to be friends and Bruce forgave her for the mind wiping incident.

This. Rachel Weisz playing Talia or Selena Kyle would just be amazing. Simply amazing. It must happen.

Re: The Dark Knight to have a female villain?

Could you imagine if we somehow got Rachel playing Selena (my absolute dream casting for Catwoman) and Natalie Portman for Talia? Nat seems everywhere and rumored for everything these days thanks to the rave early reviews for her performance in "Black Swan".

I'd actually go with Rachel Weisz as Ducards daughter and Keira Knightley for Salena Kyle. A cat burglar and Assassin seems like they would fit in Nolans world.

Re: The Dark Knight to have a female villain?

Stax of IGN had this to say about what he's hearing for the female leads and main villain of The Dark Knight Rises on his Twitter:

Talia al Ghul (Keira Knightley), Sarah Essen (Naomi Watts), and Hugo Strange (Tom Hardy)
I would have no problem if this turned out to be true. I'm really pulling for Strange, and The Duchess and Atonement convinced me that Knightley is a very strong actress when given the right material.

Re: The Dark Knight to have a female villain?

Sarah Essen keeps cropping up...interesting. I would not be surprised if the third movie reveals that Gordon's wife left him after the events of "The Dark Knight". That strain being too much for her to take. I think that is why she left in the comcis.

Re: The Dark Knight to have a female villain?

Part of me wants to see them cast both Knightley and Portman and somehow play up their physical similarity (though it's obviously not as great as it once was).

Re: The Dark Knight to have a female villain?

I feel like I've already said this a million times, but I have to every time it's brought up. I can't help myself. I really really really hope there's no Harley Quinn, and I'm pretty sure there won't be since apparently Nolan once laughed at the suggestion. I love Harley. I wear a shirt with her on it proudly and she's my favourite character in the animated series, but she works best as a cartoon character and I don't think she should ever be depicted otherwise.

I'm rooting for Talia. Great character and never done in live action before. I wouldn't mind seeing Catwoman again, but I love the Julie Newmar and Michelle Pfieffer versions so much, I don't think the world necessarily needs another one. Talia and a male villain would be enough. If one actress is Talia and the second female cast is the love interest, I won't be too disappointed by the lack of Catwoman. I just can't imagine Nolan having a character named 'Catwoman' in one of his movies. Sounds too silly.

Exactly. And apparently their mothers couldn't tell them apart under the makeup. Granted that was 10 years ago, but if Nolan wanted to, say, play with confusing the audience or maybe some characters about if they're seeing Talia or Selina, they could do worse.

Sillier than 'Batman'?

Re: The Dark Knight to have a female villain?

As for myself, I'm rooting for Harley Quinn. She'd fit well in the story from Dark Knight, since I doubt they'll have another actor play Joker in the next film after the demise of the former actor portraying the role (can't remember the guys name). If done properly (big if), she'd fill in the Jokers role and maybe carve her own spot out.
