Deadline is reporting that Nolan is meeting with actresses for two roles in "The Dark Knight Rises;" a love interest and a villain.
This news leads one to believe that Catwoman is the villain.
But, as we have talked about here at Inscaped numerous times (at the 21:20 mark), I don't think so.
Wrapping up the Nolan trilogy, I truly believe that Talia al Ghul is going to be in this next movie.
So let's look at Deadline's reported actresses, wait... let's not.
Because there's only one choice.
And she wants the part.
At Comic-Con this year (see above) she talked about wanting the role. She's already perfect for the role after doing the voice for Talia in the next "Batman" game.
As Stephanie has pointed out, Katic can pull off the action perfectly.
And if you want to see some amazing acting, check out the "Castle" episode "Sucker Punch."
Forget Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley.
Katic is the only real choice.
