Juno Temple's Dark Knight Rises role probably revealed

Sep. 6, 2011by: Paul Tassi

We know all the major heroes and villains that are appearing in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES at this point (unless Nolan is planning to spring the Riddler on us as a surprise), but a lot of the smaller parts are still a mystery.

We announced Juno Temple was joining the case back when we said Joseph Gordon-Levitt was, and though we know his now (a beat cop working under Gordon), we haven't known hers. Well now we do. Probably.

Total Film has the info:

"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."

But Temple won't elaborate:

"I can’t talk about that. But I think it’s going to be [frick]ing unbelievable. [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."

With Catwoman's prominent role in the film, and the way Temple and Robinson share visual similarities, this would seem to be likely legit. Think the character will make a good addition to the Nolan Bat-verse?

Extra Tidbit: Who is left with an unknown role at this point?

Actually hope Nolan introduces Robin

I know, i know Nolan's Batman is too badass and gritty to have a boy wonder running around in a brightly colored costume and tights...but I could see the girl Robin (The Dark Knight Returns) fitting well with the universe.

I could easily see this as well. Since this is the final film of his trilogy, it would seem fitting to have a young character who is similar to a young Bruce Wayne. Someone he teaches to use his anger for good.

I thought Nolan might make a really ballsy move and make her his version of Robin. As silly and unnecessary as Robin can be, it'd be interesting to see Nolan's take on anything Batman....

Never thought of that, but now it makes so much sense being how big an influence YEAR ONE was on Begins.

Is there ANY chance we're being fooled?

Does anybody think there's a REMOTE possibility that Gordon-Levitt really is the Riddler or something and that all this public filming Nolan's been doing has been to distract us from other stuff they're filming more quietly. Like maybe Bane and Catwoman are actually the B-story and Levitt is the main baddie?

I like that train of thought, just probably too good to be true.

Not a chance in hell. As much as I wish it were true, we need to face reality and the secret character will be Talia, but everyone knows that. There will be no Riddler.

To those speculating about JGL...

Let's put these rumors to rest. JGL is not riddler, nor is Nolan filming stuff just to fake us out. Nolan more than likely does not have the advertising budget he did with TDK. Remember the viral stuff that happened almost weekly? Nothing of that sort (minus the picture of Bane) has happened yet. So Nolan is now using the media and paparazzi as its own viral marketing. This is why he doesn't give a rats ass about the hundreds of pictures on the web taken every week. We are creating the

The Robin origins are interesting.. The outfit is just so damn annoying and Batman hanging with teens is just more than a bit creepy.

I thought she would be somewhat of a sidekick to Batman, but Catwoman makes sense. I mean Batman has his allies in Gordon, Fox, and Alfred, so I guess Catwoman has hers.

Regarding the extra tidbit, Daniel Sunjata. And if us fans already know, then could someone please tell me his role in the movie. Thanks.

Dr. Hugo Strange

It's too bad, b/c there were rumors that robin williams would be in the film as hugo strange. but now it seems like that's not happening. unless they're just keeping it as a surprise.
