Cotillard will reportedly be playing Miranda Tate, a board member at Wayne Enterprises, but speculation is high that she'll really play Talia Al Ghul -- the daughter of Liam Neeson's 'Batman Begins' villain Ra's Al Ghul. Word that Neeson will be shooting some scenes for the sequel have given that theory more credence.
Tate could simply be a cover for Ghul's true identity, which raises the question: why reveal anything about Cotillard's character at all? Wouldn't it be simpler for Nolan, his leading lady and everyone involved to just keep mum?
