There was a time, back before Latino Review underwent its lovely aesthetic changes, when ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ news was so incredibly spoiler-heavy that it was hard to imagine there being any twists or turns left to figure out. But “In Nolan we trust,” right?
This is just a little warning that if you want to go into the film ‘Seinfeld’ fresh, you should probably stop reading right here. Possible SPOILERS will follow.
It feels like so long ago that actress Marion Cotillard was named as playing Miranda Tate in ‘Rises,’ a woman who is affiliated with Wayne Enterprises. Upon the initial announcement of her casting, rumors swelled that Tate was merely a cover for Talia Al Ghul, daughter of the villain of ‘Batman Begins,’ Ras Al Ghul, who was played by Liam Neeson.
No matter how much proof is accumulated, the actors of ‘Rises’ are bound to secrecy — whether it be contractually or through some sense of moral, artistic obligation. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Cotillard maintained that her character is merely “fascinated by Wayne Enterprises. They go through difficulties, and she wants to help provide the world clean energies. She’s a good guy.” Asked if Tate will remain a “good guy,” she said, “yes” — presumably while holding back a liar’s grin.
It would have been a perfect time during that minor interrogation to throw down a massive, printed out photo of Tate in some strangely villainous garb. To be fair, the outfit does resemble the attire of Ras’ from ‘Begins,’ but it’s also not a far cry from what the average Earth-saving-Facebook-posting hipster wears these days. Maybe it’s Tate’s casual attire.
