Batman’s love a ‘superwoman’
possible French actress Marion Cotillard (pictured) could have been replaced as a love interest for Christian Bale’s Batman in the movie The Dark Knight Rises. That’s because she was due with her first child, a son named Marcel, around the beginning of filming for the third instalment in the franchise. Director Christopher Nolan tells the August issue of Vogue magazine that he wanted to ‘‘figure it out’’. Most of her scenes were pushed back a month and Nolan made room on the set for Cotillard’s family. Still, he marvelled at the Academy Award winner’s ability to do her job so soon after giving birth, calling it ‘‘amazing to see’’ and describing her as ‘‘Superwoman’’. Nolan and Cotillard also worked together on the 2010 film Inception. In other Batman news, Anne Hathaway is interested in reprising her role as Catwoman after The Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan tipped her for a spin-off movie. The filmmaker recently sang Hathaway’s praises for her role as Batman’s feline nemesis, saying that she deserves a solo movie opportunity. Hathaway admits she would love to sign up for a spin-off if she was working with ‘‘the right people’’. ‘‘I’m very interested,’’ she says. ‘‘I think it would be lovely to see more of her but only if it’s with the right people.’’
