If rumors circulating since last year are to be believed, Marion Cotillard's character in The Dark Knight Rises, entrepreneur Miranda Tate, is actually Talia al'Ghul, daughter of Ra's al'Ghul, who Batman faced in Batman Begins.
Despite evidence to the contrary, Cotillard insists her character is exactly what she seems, "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."
And what's more, Cotillard told The Hollywood Reporter that she stays a good guy throughout the whole movie.
Of course, we have to take anything the Rises cast says with a grain of salt, considering Chris Nolan's notorious secrecy. Could Cotillard be intentionally misleading us in an attempt to put the cat back into the bag?
