Marion Cotillard: Batman 3 The Dark Knight Rises Cast Rumor

marion cotillardThe Dark Knight Rises by Chris Nolan has just received another casting rumor that has Marion Cotillard joining the new Batman 3.

The new Batman 3 movie tentatively titled The Dark Knight Rises already has a strong, star studded line-up that just added a little more power as Oscar winner Marion Cotillard (Inception) has joined the cast.

Already in place is Christian Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane and Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. We also have Joseph Gordon-Levitt in an unnamed role (rumor has it that he may end up playing Mr. Freeze) and returning are Batman vets Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman.

Marion Cotillard stared in Batman Director Christopher Nolan’s last movie Inception and she has nothing but rave things to say about him. She said he is a very smart guy and she is very impressed that he writes his own scripts. She feels he is rich inside and has many things to say. Nolan, as he did with the two previous Batman movies, shares the screenwriting credit with his brother Jonathan who also wrote the short story that the movie Memento was based on.

While it remains to be seen which role Cotillard will play and how much Nolan will use her, it is clear that he is surrounding himself with a stellar cast and he will put them to good use. Batman Begins was great. The Dark Knight was even better. I have a feeling that Nolan will knock it out of the park with The Dark Knight Rises. There is rumor that this will be the last of the Batman movies Nolan directs.  If that is true he will likely want to go out with a bang and it looks like he is assembling the cast to do just that.
