Anne Hathaway's Got A Fight On Her Hands as Marion Cotillard is in Talks to Join Batman 3

I admit, this story is just a convenient excuse to post a picture of Marion Cotillard. I don't think I can be faulted for that. Regardless, the casting rumor machine for The Dark Knight Rises continues to churn at a ridiculous pace -- I think that this and Zack Snyder's Superman: Man Of Steel probably keep the rumor mill running on overdrive more than any other films right now.

For a while now, there have been reports that Nolan's next and final entry in the Batman series involved two main female leads. Anne Hathaway has already been cast as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, and now French newspaper Le Figaro (later confirmed by THR) is reporting that Marion Cotillard (Inception, Public Enemies) will be the second lead. I've got no complaints whatsoever -- she's a stellar actress, she was fascinating in Nolan's Inception, and she'll certainly class up the joint.

Of course, the question that arises is -- will she survive? Nolan has a bizarre tendency to kill off his female leads, so who knows whether or not she'll escape unscathed. Of course, the other big question is -- who the hell is she going to play? Is she going to be the love interest? Who knows. But I know this:


Nothing bad can come of this.
