Nolan Casting a Female Villain and Love Interest for 'The Dark Knight Rises'

Deadline, who first  broke the news that Tom Hardy has joined the cast of The Dark Knight Rises, now is reporting another interesting casting rumor.
"Chris Nolan is lining up actresses he'll meet for two female lead roles in The Dark Knight Rises, the third installment of the Batfranchise which Warner Bros has dated release on July 20, 2012. I'm told one of the roles is a love interest for Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne, and the other is a villain. The actresses are: Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley."
Does the mean the Catwoman and Talia Al Ghul rumours could possibly be true since Nolan is indeed looking for a female villain?  On the other hand, there are of plenty of love interests for Bruce Wayne that they could pick from the comic books.

My gripe with this rumor is centered around Blake Lively.  There is no way in hell Warner Brothers is going to allow Blake Lively (aka Carol Ferris) the star of the fist of three Green Lantern movies to play another character in Christopher Nolan's, The Dark Knight Rises. Thus, I have a hard time believing the validity of this claim.  We'll just have to wait and see.

The Dark Knight Rises is set to be released on July 20, 2012!

  1. I really hope Nolan goes with Talia al Ghul as the villain. I just don't see Catwoman fitting into his Batman universe. He could surprise and pull it off, but it seems unlikely.
