Two new snippets of news about The Dark Knight Rises just came out, and I must say, things are really starting to point towards the Talia al Ghul rumors being true. What we’ve got here is an interview with Marion Cotillard and some leaked set photos, both of which are actually quite revealing (especially when coupled with the news of the India shoot, and Josh Pence playing a young version of Ra’s al Ghul).

For starters, there’s Marion Cotillard’s LA Times interview. On the surface, it’s not really all that telling, and she doesn’t have anything earth shattering to reveal. She does, however, say that her role in the film is “a secret” which raises some interesting points. Now, I realize that Nolan has almost certainly forbade his cast members from revealing even the slightest bit of information about TDKR, but it still seems odd that Cotillard had nothing to say about her role, even after some information about it has been revealed. Maybe I’m reading into this too much (it wouldn’t be the first time), but why didn’t she just repeat what we already know about her character? Possibly because there’s something more to Miranda Tate?
