Actress Joey King reveals major spoiler for The Dark Knight Rises

Out of respect for those who don’t want to know every detail (and for those who do) I’m going to reiterate that this is a pretty big spoiler in terms of a certain character, so if you want to remain in the “dark,” then hit the back button on your browser and continue to enjoy the other fine stories from your pals here at JoBlo.

Okay, still here? Cool. So, check it out, twelve-year-old actress Joey King, whose character had not been named when cast, has revealed who she’s playing in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.

Any guesses? I’ll clear it up for you with her own quote from an interview with My Entertainment World:

“I play young Talia al Ghul.”

She goes on to say, “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.”

Uh, you just gave away a major one there, young lady.

This should help clear up the mystery of who Marion Cotillard is playing, despite her insistency that it is NOT Talia al Ghul. Yeah, nice try, Marion.

I’ve been reading Batman comics for more than 15 years and everything about Cotillard’s appearance, wardrobe, and general fit within the storyline adds up to one Talia al Ghul. And, hey, I’m excited about it. Talia is one of Batman’s greatest foe’s in the comics (and the mother of his son, Damien…aka the current Robin), who acts as both a cunning villain and a secret lover. Makes for some great conflict for ol’ Bruce Wayne. 

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES opens on July 20th, 2012. Thanks for buying up all the IMAX tickets for opening night before I could get one, by the way.

Extra Tidbit: Joey King was most recently seen on the big screen in Crazy, Stupid, Love.
