UPDATE: Turns out the WB press release was a FAKE! This is still not confirmed, read the apology and article at Collider.

Just a couple of days after a French newspaper announced that Marion Cotillard would be in “The Dark Knight Rises,” Warner Bros. has provided a press release confirming the fact. In the release, WB announces that Cotillard will be playing Talia Al Ghul, while the oft-rumored Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be playing Roman Sionis, a.k.a “Black Mask.”

The two will join Anne Hathaway and “Inception” co-star Tom Hardy as villains in the third Batman film under Christopher Nolan. With both Talia Al Ghul and Catwoman in the film, we should expect a bit of a love triangle, as both were romantic interests for Batman in the comics. Meanwhile, Black Mask should fit right in to Nolan’s gritty, dark Gotham.

We’re always happy to see Cotillard getting new roles, as she is not only a terrific actress but also very active in defending the environment! Cotillard has worked with Greenpeace in the past and visited the Congo, and credits her upbringing in the French countryside for her love of nature. Gordon-Levitt, meanwhile, recently participated in The Roots’ Jam Session to benefit OpportunityNation.

Cotillard is expecting her first child and is due in the next few months, so any filming she does will likely be late in the shooting schedule. However, with “The Dark Knight Rises” shooting at least until November, there should be enough time for Cotillard to have a significant role.
