When Juno Temple was cast in The Dark Knight Rises some time ago, the word was that she would be playing “a street-smart Gotham girl”. Not all that much to go on, but it was enough to start up some fan theories. All kinds of ideas were tossed around – Batgirl, a female Robin, Harley Quinn – but the most popular (and plausible) theory by far was that Temple would be playing Holly Robinson, Catwoman’s teenage prostitute gal-pal. Now, a new interview with Miss Temple has been released, and it seems to point towards the Holly Robinson theory being correct.
In the interview (which is in the latest issue of Total Film), the magazine states:
"Then there's the big one-The Dark Knight Rises, where Temple plays "street smart Gotham gal" Holly Robinson. Speculation has it that her Holly is the young prostitute first seen in Frank Miller's Batman: Year One, and that she may be the sidekick to Anne Hathaway's Catwoman"
To which temple responds:
"I can't talk about that. But I think it's going to be [frick]ing unbelievable. [Christopher Nolan] is awesome! There's something really gentlemanly about him. He's got an insane, incredible vision going on. Just getting the opportunity to work with him is awesome"
Sounds pretty fishy, eh? Not exactly a denial, if you ask me. I still think Holly Madison most likely who she’ll be playing. Either that, or a character of Nolan’s creation.
