Casting Update: The Dark Knight Rises

Rumors are currently circulating about female love interest roles for the upcoming Batman movie. Charlize Theron is rumored to be up for Detective Sarah Essen, a partner of Jim Gordon’s that he has a brief affair with. In the comics she is murdered by the Joker and there are hints that she may be Barbara Gordon (Batgirl)’s real mother.

Vera Farmiga and Kacie Thomas are being rumored for the role of Julie Madison, a love interest for Bruce. In the comics, Julie is a socialite that is engaged to Bruce and has no knowledge of his role as Batman. She is used as a pawn in Batman’s fight with the vampiric Monk and she’s also linked to Clayface. Thoughts?

    Vera Farmiga is a great actress (Running Scared especially), and Charlize Theron is good too. I don’t know the third girl. I’d be down with either of those two though. I would lean harder towards Vera because she’s not a huge star and this could give her a bigger launch pad than The Departed and Running Scared. As good as those movies are, she is not a clear focus in those.

    I agree with MD, I like them all but I would lean towards Vera. I think Charlize has the chops UNDOUBTEDLY and I’d LOVE to see her as a pivotol character. Still, I tend to lean towards lesser actors for big roles because they tend not to have a previous role for you to typecast them.

    VERY good choices here
