TDKR: Marion Cotillard: "I'm not Talia"

The Dark Knight Rises


The Hollywood Reporter has posted an interview with Marion Cotillard discussing some of her upcoming roles in future films including The Dark Knight Rises. Rumors have been circling the web ever since she was first cast about the possibility of her playing Talia al Ghul. During the interview, THR asks about her role in Rises and she responds with a firm answer.


The Hollywood Reporter-Marion CotillardThe actress started filming Knight in June 2011, working on and off until the fall in locations including Los Angeles, New York and Pittsburgh. She says there were long gaps when she wasn't needed: "It was a very, very small role."

Otherwise, Cotillard is coy about the picture, whose storyline has fueled pages of Internet speculation. All she'll confirm is that, contrary to some fans' belief, she does not play Talia, the vengeful daughter of Liam Neeson's character, Ra's Al Ghul (who also appeared in Batman Begins), and that she takes the role of Miranda Tate, 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." But does she stay that way? "Yes," she insists.


For the entire interview, head over to The Hollywood Reporter. Do you think Cotillard is telling the truth? Sound off in the comments below. The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20.
