    Plenty of Name-Actresses Up for The Dark Knight Rises

    It's become an unwritten rule for comic-book tentpoles. Someone is going to pull out a list of finalists, usually for the lead role like what happened on Captain America and the Spider-Man reboot. Hell, Peter was just saying last night how we hadn't gotten one for Superman yet.

    "TOLDJA" has thrown up a list of actresses Christopher Nolan will soon meet with for The Dark Knight Rises – Anne Hathaway (Funny, I had her more pegged for Superman and remember when she was up for Spider-Man 4), Keira Knightley (I thought she said she was done with blockbusters after the shit stench from those Pirates of the Caribbean sequels?), Blake Lively (She just did Green Lantern and there's always the chance of her appearing in a hypothetical sequel), Natalie Portman (We've already heard those Superman whispers from Movie Hole), Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz.

    They're said to be up for two roles – the love interest for Bruce Wayne (He needs lovin' since Rachel Dawes turned to dust) and a villain. Like Catwoman, perhaps?

    Can't wait to see what characters. Hopefully they nab good actresses.

    I seriously hope Watts doesn't end up with a role. I'd love to see Weisz as Talia though.

    I'd be fine if they cast Weisz as BRUCE. Seriously. That's the deep, deep love I have for the woman. (Have you seen The Brothers Bloom?) But whether she's Talia or Selina, either way, I'm way happy.

    I hope Hathaway doesn't get chosen, but I feel like its inevitable that she will end up in one comic book movie or another.

    Yes, I've seen Brothers Bloom. I think Weisz for either Talia or Selina like you said John and/or Portman for Lane in MOS.

    Marion Cottilard. Book it.

    This really got my hopes up for a Harley Quinn/Catwoman team up.
