So are the Talia rumors dead? I've not read anything new on this since last month or so when they were heating up again.
All of the "rumors" regarding The Dark Knight Rises have been little more than an Internet game of telephone. Someone on a forum comes up with an idea -- "Hey, maybe Talia will be in it" -- and it gets repeated enough by enough people that before you know it, they've convinced themselves that sources close to the production are hinting that Talia is in the movie.

About the only thing the Internet has gotten right thus far has been Tom Hardy playing Bane, but that was mostly because the Internet threw enough spaghetti noodles of character names at the wall that one of them had to stick.

Heck, there was a point when everyone was convinced that Hugo Strange was in the movie, based on nothing more than "hey, that could be cool."

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

^ Agreed. It's almost as if the studio has been playing some kind of disinformation game or whatever to get fans to discuss things.

I'm sure it's more fans speculating than an outright "disinformation campaign" by the studio.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Except that we're commenting on rumors. Rumors started with websites who say that they're getting information from "studio insiders" and what not. This later turns out to be false in most of the cases. We still end up speculating and debating pretty much nothing really. Then the real actual news blows our mind because we've already been discussing something totally different. It's just frustrating as a fan to know what's real and what is bullshit.

Sometimes I wonder the validity of these proclaimed "studio insiders".

Well, my best friend's dad's co-worker's brother is a janitor at Warner Bros. and he says that he saw some script pages while he was emptying the trash in Nolan's office and it's confirmed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is playing Egghead. I bet he's working on his Vincent Price impression at this very moment.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

The Dark Knight Rises will film in Pittsburgh. Director Christopher Nolan in a statement:

"Pittsburgh is a beautiful city," the London-born director said in a statement. "We have been able to find everything we were looking for here, and I am excited to spend the summer in Pittsburgh with our final installment of Batman."
This is very disappointing, but I saw it coming. Chicago will miss you Christopher Nolan, and so will I.

They'll at least get coverage shots of Chicago to match the previous movies though, right?

Doesn't look like it. The article mentions the production will film in Pittsburgh for "four-six weeks". It looks like we're going to see an entirely new Gotham in The Dark Knight Rises.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Pity if for no other reason than for consistency's sake.

Okay and because you never got Nolan's autograph.

I noticed Marion Cotillard is listed as part of the new cast. Is it safe to assume it's official now? Of course, this will just add more fuel to the "who is he/she playing, damnit?" fire.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Well, it's not like Gotham had a consistent look between the first two movies anyway. In BB, it looked more like a fanciful, exotic location, with the CGI skyline and elevated trains and the bridges and decaying architecture of the Narrows and so on. It looked like a largely designed and constructed environment, an imaginary world created for a movie. But TDK looked like a much more down-to-earth, on-location kind of production, with a less fantastic, more naturalistic atmosphere.
