WARNING: There may be spoilers here so proceed with caution.
Since the inception of The Dark Knight Rises there have been rumors circling about the villains in the movie, or the suspicious lack thereof. In fact, the only antagonist we know for sure is the bone crushing Bane, played by a bulked up Tom Hardy.
The reason for the suspicions stem from talented and well known cast members playing rather inconspicuous parts. Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a cop? Marion Cotillard as a Wayne Enterprise executive? That doesn’t sound right, does it?
Well, for those of you who have suspicions and who think Nolan isn’t exactly being up front with us, you may find this interesting. In an interview with My Entertainment World, actress Joey King revealed her role in the film, giving us a hint as to who the other villain may be in The Dark Knight Rises.
“I play young Talia al Ghul. I can’t give too much away because I promised Mr. Nolan I wouldn’t say anything. There are too many secrets about the character and the movie.”
Although not much to go on, it’s still extremely intriguing since Cotillard has been rumored to be playing the mysterious Talia al Ghul for a while now. Could King’s comment be confirmation that Cotillard will indeed be the grown up version of Talia al Ghul? No one knows for sure so as of now it looks like we’ll have to wait until July 20th to find out! That being said, feel free to leave your comments and thoughts below and let us know what you think.
