    That’s interesting. I would also like to see Kate Winslet go against type and play a character she is never played before in another big budget mainstream movie. She would have been a very intriguing villain in this. Even Cate Blanchette branches out and plays against type in some movies.

    @JC: Nolan’s movies and writing are SUPERB. Heath Ledger was an amazing actor, of course, and i’m a huge fan of his work but saying it was because of him that Nolan is considered a genius is bull ****! Ledger wasn’t there when Nolan was writing Inception. Or Prestige. Or even Dark Knight. And he wasn’t the one who directed these films brilliantly as well.

    @hihi: I understand. I’m just saying that as my own personal opinion I feel like Nolan drags out his stories, and he is lacking in character development. In Inception I didn’t know why I was supposed to even care about the DiCaprio character or his wife. I wouldn’t go as far as to describe him as superb. To me Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson are superb writer/directors. As far as character driven dialog goes those guys are two of the best. Fully developed characters that are layered. They couldn’t pull off some of the sequences Nolan pulls off though. Visually, Nolan is superb.

    right with jc, we want to see something of unique and different with the same actors of the dark knight and new actors that christopher nolan have never worked before. we know that christopher is genius,his scripts are amazing but the people see the perfomance too and that’s what the movie could work or not . christopher think about box office too i’am pretty sure about that but it’s not with cast of inception that the movie could work. it’s like to see the same film with same caracters and don’t forget that inception was in cinema only last year so it’s not so far from TDKR who will be in cinema on summer 2012 .
    i saw that tom hardy and JLG are already in the cast which i think it’s bad idea and now i saw t that he is including marion cotillard too in the movie!!!! .this is worst ever!!!!!! even if i think marion is wonderful actress. i would not surprised that people call the TDKR, Inception 2.
    he should change his cast seriously. anne hathaway it’s ok. she is new in the cast and people want to know her and want discover catwoman. about the box office the DK won because of Heath ledger, christian bale’s and aaron ‘s perfomance and in Inception because of leonardo dicaprio and ellen peage’s perfomance that’s all. all these performance were new except christian bale who was in batman begins but you see when you are discovering new face with actors who have never worked with chris you are curious and want to see the movie and that make work and won many money
    sorry for my english, i hope you understand what i mean.

    thalia is physical acrobatic girl, are you sure that after her baby will due she will know to fight, jump and do all acrobatic things that thalia does???? for that, you should do training for 3 month to be like her. all actors who make an action movie doing training for 2 or 3 months and maybe more. marion is pregnant so i dont’ think that she will be ready for the role

    I must admit she’s a good actress but since she’s got her Oscar, here in France she tends to get more and more boastful and disagreeable towards “common” people. One of my mum’s friends has worked with her and said Cotillard was not nice at all.

    Tanya Says:

    I don’t think that she’s all that great an actress. I saw her in A Good Year, Public Enemies and Inception. I wasn’t impressed. Nolan is getting boring with his casting always using the same actors, but just putting them in different movies. He needs to expand his horizons more.

    Ginny Says:

    @sockpuppet alert!:
    Seriously. Are you delusional enough to believe that only one person dislikes her? As for her being a “great Oscar winning acress”, her win was for a French film, right? She barely spoke in Inception. Her English still sucks.
    At least Jackie Chan and Jean Claude Van Damme had the bal*s to admit that they really had no clue what they were saying in their first English films, but both of them stepped up to get a handle on the language since “faking it ’til you make it” will only be tolerated to a certain point.
    She makes me want to hurl.

    I think she really improved her english, but accents are kind of hard to get. (I’m fluent but no matter how hard I try to have an english or american accent everybody’s always like “awwwwwwwww your accent’s so cute” => very upsetting.)
    The only american movie I’ve seen her in was Inception. And I wasn’t shocked by her accent. But again, she didn’t speak that much for that part.
    That’s not the problem. I really do think she is overrated. And for La Vie en Rose she’s good of course but everybody playing that part would have won. I mean the biopic stuff, the make up, the aging, all that drama. The moment I saw the movie I said to myself : not bad, not amazing but totally award material.
    Anyway, Marion is not bad but not as great of an actress as people thinks she is. In Les Petits Mouchoirs she almost sucks (especially in the end)
    But that being said I am extremely happy she made it in Hollywood. That’s very good for French Cinema.

    @hell yeah!:

    Marion Cotillard is a phenomenal actress. Her performance in La Vie En Rose was one of the best I’ve seen in recent years, and I thought she was the best part of Inception. I predict that she’ll be playing Talia al Ghul. She’d be absolutely perfect for it, and her accent would work for that character. I can easily envision her calling Batman her beloved (for those of you actually familiar with the comics). And having both Selina Kyle and Talia al Ghul would be a very interesting plotline as both women have been love interests and villains.

    I’m tired of hearing the hate for foreign actors/accents. Talia al Ghul has an accent, so I’d be happy to see her as Talia.

    Also, the majority of directors use the same actors repeatedly. Spielberg, Shamalan, Ron Howard, Hitchcock. Stop complaining about the casting!

    Everyone loves the Nolan Batman movies Just trust him on this. He made two phenomenal ones already.
