Bat­man’s love a ‘su­per­woman’

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

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.’’
