Rumors circulated awhile back that another Inception cast member, Marion Cotillard, might be on the shortlist of actresses for Batman sequel The Dark Knight Rises. Then she got pregnant with her first child and the rumor disappeared. But now the rumor is back, and it wasn’t some tabloid content farm reporting it to click-whore. This was reported in French daily newspaper Le Figaro, the “oldest and second-largest national newspaper in France”. (Thanks, Wikipedia.)
Marion Cotillard in “Batman 3″. The actress, who is expecting a child in the spring with Guillaume Canet, will be scarce this year. She’ll do a single film and her choice fell on Batman 3. This blockbuster produced by Warner Bros. enables her to work with the director Christopher Nolan, with whom she had turned very successful sci-fi Inception. Marion Cotillard will join the filming this summer in Los Angeles. [translated from LeFigaro by BatmanNews via LatinoReview]
The prior rumors suggested Cotillard might play Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter Talia, who is the mother of Batman’s son Damian. That’s right. Damian Wayne. He was so funny on In Living Color. “Homey don’t play that.” Ha. Classic.
