Which ladies will be meeting up with Christopher Nolan to potentially star in Batman 3?

11.11.2010

Two leading lady parts are up for grabs in Chris Nolan's next BATMAN installment.

Nolan will be meeting with Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley. Here's the fun part--one role is Bruce's love interest and the other is a villain.

SHIT JUST GOT REAL.

Of course these roles are under wraps, just like the one that Tom Hardy is supposed to play. Apparently Hardy signed on without knowing who the character was or reading the script. This should not matter to an actor like Hardy who I'm convinced could play whoever the hell he wants.

It's time to speculate these lady roles. Last week there were rumors that the characters were Sarah Essen and Julie Madison. In my opinion, I'm going to say no on Essen. Why bring in a love interest for Gordon at this point? Madison is still feasible since Bruce ultimately always needs some sort of girl pining after him. Maybe it's time for Talia to step-in? Doubtful. Vesper Fairchild?

Which villain could it be? I'd say it's between Catwoman and Poison Ivy. While Harley Quinn would have been awesome, I just don't see her coming into play here.

I'll let you guys figure it out.

Extra Tidbit: Nice to see Naomi Watts for a change.

Weisz

anyone see Weisz as a perfect fit for Talia al Ghul? that would cover the love interest,plus we've already had Raz al Ghul in the mix so.... REALLY can't narrow any of these actress to a villian though. as much as I would love to see Harley Quinn I really don't think it would work as well without having joker in the mix.

They're all fine in my book, except Knightley. CAN'T STAND HER. Bitch can't act to save her life, she'd stink up the movie.

Harley Quinn

Could easily be written as a psycho copycat criminal inspired by the Joker's anarchic ways and could easily be on screen when Joker is not (and behind bars). I don't think Nolan would go this route though, unless its a minor role, like someone Batman catches at the very beginning in the opening action scene or something and then why cast one of these big names for 5 minutes of screentime?

I'll bet anybody $20 it'll be Anne Hathaway as Harley Quinn. She has the range, the features and the only thing I can see topping Ledger's Joker would be a sinister female villain that is just as sick as he is. Poison Ivy and Catwoman just seem too comical for the gritty take Nolan goes for. I honestly can't think of any *really* scary female villains in the last 10 years either. Maybe someone can...

I'd love to see either Anne Hathaway, Naomi Watts, or Rachel Weisz. Natalie would be great too. I'd rather not see Keira Knightley or Blake Lively, the others I think would just be better.

Totally awesome but I have questions

OK to be honest with you guys I can only see the top row (Knightley, Watts, and Weisz) as hopefuls I mean ok yea they're all smokin hot and everything but I really havent seen much from Lively (acting wise) in order to give her permission to ruin a decent franchise. Knightly....Ehhhh I have a feeling Id be watching pirates all over again. And I just am kind of lost for words when talking about hathaway. I think it would be cool to see harley quinn, maybe somehow the joker dies and unleashing

Did I miss a memo?

Who flipped the switch that turned Natalie Portman into the Johnny Depp of casting rumors?

Anyway, I'm not going to have my suspicions led by untrustworthy rumors so how about this for a possible character: Janice Porter.

Gotham needs a new DA, and Porter was anti-Batman in Dark Victory so that can easily make her a villain. That being said: Weisz and Watts work for that role.

Portman and Lively are just being thrown into the mix to throw people off. Please no Knightly, please. And

I like about half the list. If it were up to me, I'd go with Rachel Weisz and/or Naomi Watts. I'm in love with Portman, but I think Naomi and Rachel are easily the most talented out of the bunch.

Ugh..

#1, Naomi Watts is worthless as an actress, so scratch her. I see Nolan leaning towards Rachel Weiss for a role even though she's not my fav. I'm thinking at this point in the franchise it would be a good opportunity to introduce Catwoman, to pray on Bruce's vulnerability as he is the enemy of the state. She is a distraction, while simultaneously he's trying to take down the uber-villain with no help from the law.

Im betting the villianess will be Talia a Ghul. Most likely a revenge for killing daddy kind of thing, which would help wrap up the trilogy.

Kiera as Catwoman for sure, vigilante wannabes hunting down batman. Black Mask play by Hardy or Clive Owen, mass murder taking over the gangs. Bane played by Mickey Rourke (I know he was in iron man but I thought before he was cast for that, that he could be a perfect bane), going to mess you up on this one - Kyrptonite infused steroid freek hired by the old mob bosses to take down Black Mask and Batman. Movie ends with Bane breaking Batmans back and Catwoman killing Bane, fade to black.

I would say that this is the greatest kept secret in Hollywood. The woman who is chosen to play the villain will be Harley Quinn because there is still footage for the joker that wasn't used in The Dark Knight...I'm just saying. Fingers Crossed.

A. I think you need to look up what 'found footage' means because thats not what I'm talking about...

B. What I am talking about is unused footage that could be added to the film, like in the opening of TDK with the seemingly insignificant scarecrow bit.

C. In accordance to everything you said your an idiot.

BEING THAT BATMAN IS A WANTED OUTLAW NOW...

I think one of the roles could be for Commissioner Ellen Yindel from The Dark Knight Returns who was brought in by the Mayor to replace Gordon and bring down Batman, just my theory at this point. I really don't get why people want Harley Quinn without The Joker. Her whole character is based around her obsession with him and without him in the movie it just doesn't work.

I don't believe this news.

This seems fake or like a rumor to me. Am I alone? That said, I could see both Weisz and Knightley getting long looks for certain roles in TDKR. Nolan loves British actors naturally, and they are both talented. Watts is talented too, and has had a strange underperforming career given her talent, so maybe throw her in the mix too. Keep in mind that Weisz and Watts are both several years older than Bale, not that that completely rules them out as his love interest, just saying...Maybe one of

Has to be Catwoman

Nolan has always gone for the realistic villains and Poison Ivy would be both risky and very tough to pull off. No superpowers in Nolan's Batman universe.

And as far as I can remember, Nolan hasn't ever crossed off Catwoman from his list. Rachel Weisz has always been my number one pick for the character and the woman is a phenomenal actress. Fingers crossed he chooses her. I'm not concerned about the love interest, though I can really see Natalie Portman as a potential.

No to Knightley. Seriously, NO. Hathaway is not my idea of comic book film actress, so no. Lively is already in GL, so no. Portman's in Thor, and I love her to bits, but no to her. I'm all for Watts as the love interest and Weisz as the villain.

hmmm dunno how far you'd get with harley quinn as a villain without the joker, even though i love the character. naomi watts is a definite YES--i could see her as vicki vale if that's what direction nolan is going to take. no to keira knightly. just no. i'd rather catwoman than talia--catwoman is more integral to the 'batman' canon than talia is. i like most of batman's female villains, though, so this should be interesting.

Interesting list of names

Watts and Portman are the most talented. Lively is cute but the fact that she's the lead in "Green Lantern" makes me doubtful they'd cast her in another comic book film. Hathaway bothers me for some reason, personally--feel like she's always doing the same sorta-ditzy, sorta-cutesy character more or less. If she's cast, though, it'll be another actor from "Brokeback Mountain."

Have you ever seen Rachel Getting Married? She was excellent in that and it was very different than her usual roles. However, I'm not arguing a case FOR her to be in a franchise I don't like.

I don't know why any of these actresses are bothering to meet with Nolan since he never has good roles for women in his movies. Even many Nolan fans acknowledge this. I'm a big fan of Naomi Watts, Keira Knightley, Rachel Weisz, and Natalie Portman so I don't want to see them in this movie. I hate Nolan's Batman franchise (and Inception is the worst movie I've seen so far this year). So, I would cast Blake Lively and Anne Hathaway by default. Although, I like them too. And I find it

And I find it interesting he chose Lively over Meester to talk to. Meester is the better actress in my opinion and if the role was Catwoman or something, she'd fit the part better. I hope none of these actresses are cast and he goes with someone I don't like.

ANNE HATHAWAY!!!!!!

If Hathaway gets the role of Catwoman, I will piss my pants. That has been my wish the whole time.

As for Harley Quinn... It would be cool, but I don't see her being a good villain without The Joker.

2 hot actresses. I guess now I know why the Dark Knight "rises". With lively in Green Lantern and Portman in Thor I would say choose from the other 4. I really like Pfieffer's Catwoman so I kinda hope she isn't in this film, and I can't really believe Poison Ivy in a Nolan film. I think Watts would make a great Vicki vale type character, trying to figure out Batman's identity.

Please, for the love of Batman's balls, give it to Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz. The other candidates are seemingly offered or considered for every role under the sun.

Lively is out of the question, she's already in Green Lantern. Weisz, Portman, Hathaway, and Watts are the only ones that grab my attention.

Vicki Vale

I think they will do Vicki Vale as the love interest. It would be interesting to see her as a love interest for Bruce while trying to uncover the identity of Batman, seeing as how she is a reporter.

Talia would also be a great choice. And if Neeson made a cameo, that would be cool too. Ras Al Gul and his Laz pits.

Nice to have two females...

My hopes are for Catwoman AND Poison Ivy. Ivy as love interest in the beginning who turns out to be a black widow, and Catwoman as villain who will become the true love of Batman and Bruce.
For Catwoman I would choose Rachel Weisz or Natalie Portman and for Ivy Naomi Watts or Anne Hathaway (I think she could play both lovely and crazy perfectly).
And please keep Keira Knightley away from the franchise and Blake Lively because she's already in Green Lantern (even if the films aren't

Natalie Portman as a more sympathetic

Catwoman? I'd like to see that. Mix a sweet, shy relationship between Selina Kyle and Bruce Wayne, and Batman seeing Catwoman as a less principled vigilante than he is: should he arrest her or help her?

Personally hope one of the roles is Talia....

Weisz, Watts, or Hathaway for me. Nothing wrong with the other choices really, but Ms. Weisz and Ms. Watts seem to fit with Nolan's trend in casting types. Elegant, talented, and very acclaimed actresses.

that's actually not a bad casting idea. but like Brer B8a said below, she's a sidekick and basically a knock-off of the Joker. They need to break new ground, which they will.

I'd pick...

Rachel Weisz in 1 slot for definite, then either Blake Lively or Anne Hathaway for the 2nd, although it depends on what the roles are of course. If Keira Knightley ends up in this then we know the storyline involves Batman turning gay.

No Lively because shes in Green Lantern. But all these actresses are great choices I believe. I won't be upset with who he chooses. As far as Harley Quinn, forget about her. Without the Joker she shouldn't be in this unless it was a real minor role. Otherwise it would be like having Robin without Batman. She is basically a sidekick not a criminal mastermind.

Knightley as a villian...

Other than that, it looks like a list of the most "well known" actresses right now. I'd rather someone distinct then someone I've just so happened to see before. Big whoop.

Here's to Portman/Hathaway for the love interest and Weisz/Watts for the villain.

Personally... i would LOVE to see Harley Quinn come into this movie. With Ledger's death, you obviously can't bring back Joker (as Nolan has already said) but bring in Harley Quinn and get an actress that can pull off that shit the way Ledger did The Joker and you have a way to continue the Jokers reign of terror from within Arkham while having a super hot and super psycho bitch out there on the streets fucking shit up!

That is the way I hope they are going with this movie. It fits within

Hollywood is getting tiring. Not that I am really complaining, as these ladies are all talented and very pretty, but it seems that this same list of actresses has been bandied around for the past year for every female role.

However, I am excited that quality actors are trying to land a role in this movie. To me, it indicates that the level of quality must be pretty high.

You honestly can't go wrong with any of them. Nolan has exceptional taste. Poison Ivy seems more likely than Catwoman, maybe because of how recently the Halle Berry movie came out. Love interest: Anne Hathaway; Villain: Naomi Watts
