    If you click Miranda Tate on IMDB...they've already made that leap.

    Yeah. Her character is supposed to be a Wayne Exec trying to get the company back to the charities of Bruce's parents. I could see her making Bruce take more time off being Batman to set that up, and Bruce getting closer to her and letting her into his secrets, only to have Bane/League of Shadows destroy everything he's worked for and reveal that Miranda is really Talia and they all worked together to break not only Batman, but also Bruce Wayne.

    When was Liam actually confirmed to be reprising the role of Ra's al-Ghul? So far as I know the only thing about Ra's confirmed is that Josh Pence will portray a young Ra's. Liam was rumored, but not confirmed, to have been on set in India I believe.

    Variety and IGN confirmed it several weeks ago.

    Which makes sense. Every cop is looking for the Batman. So Bruce can not possible enter the police commissioner's vicinity as Batman. But he just might get away with the ski mask and his stealth skills.

    Nice. The second one is really good since Begins and Rises both are looking up at buildings. If the Dark Knight poster was like that too all three would look like just one image.

    This is hilarious, sums up a lot of thoughts on the trailer.

    Yeah, teaser is pretty underwhelming.
    Also don't like the idea of setting it up to be the ending. What if it goes well and they want to make another one with the same cast?

    Well, it would allow for (yet another) reimaging of the characters/franchise.
    Maybe put Bruce Timm in charge?
    Or maybe for once not rush the story?
    Maybe just have it be a villain out to do something and a hero rise to stop him?
    And maybe we don't have to retell the origin story in every single freekin' movie?

    As I suspected, the mask looks better in the new images of Bane. From another angle, it looks more like a mask, and less like a strapped-on mouth guard. I'm not sure I'm sold on the coat, but it may be a one-scene thing.

    I can't really think of a reason why she would be walking with a bunch of League of Shadows/Bane Mercs unless she is with them. Looks like she gains Bruce's trust and they tries to destroy him from the inside.

    I'm calling it confirmed now. She is Talia Al Ghul.

    I can only pray we get a post credit scene of her being pregnant... with Damien Wayne.

    Catwoman?

    I hope she gets the cat cowl at some point...

    I'm thinking this is her staring out suit. Like Batman's ski-mask action suit he had in Begins. I don't think Nolan would give us the full final Catwoman suit this soon.

    But event then I like this costume, doesn't look out of place or ridiculous. Just make modifications to the mask and you got a good Catwoman suit. If the spoilers are true and she saves Batman here I could see Bruce giving her some Wayne tech for a new suit.

    I think I'll skip this one altogether. I may consider seeing it for Michael Caine, but unlikely. It's much more likely I'll wait to see Liam in Battleship where it seems more likely he'll once again be doing a 'classic Liam' character I can like.:p[face_love]

    If Nolan sticks to his method...I'm not sure you will...perhaps she embraces the "catwoman" concept with a logo or a gimmick...but I'm not sure she'll put on kitty ears and a tail (or whip for that matter).

    I'd settle for her having a cat named Isis.

    batman-news.com is saying he has a source that says the cowl will happen. He also has a trusted source that says she starts out as a stripper.

    Yeah I've been hearing the same about Catwoman.

    I also heard today from filming that Bane destroys a football stadium with some type of 'earthquake machine' so we might be getting a Knightfall and No Man's Land story. Also saw a video of them shooting the scene with Bane talking... he does not sound like what I expected. But I'm sure that's all do to the low sound quality. I'm sure when their done Bane will sound great.

    They can't do No Man's Land...not if Nolan truly intends this as his last Batman film.

    No Man's Land is too good and too vast to encapsulate within the same story as Knightfall. Just the time involved with what happens to Gotham...unless you have an absurd montage...it's just too much time to cover.

    Now, if it's a lie, and this film will lead into a theatrical version of No Man's Land...wow!

    The biggest obstacle with No Man's Land is the inclusion of other DC characters to the story...particularly Lex Luthor.

    It might behoove DC to consider such a crossover...but my guess is they'll aim for a "Justice League" film rather then a Batman movie with cameos.

    Well from the reliable sources I've heard from I can say I'm 90% sure the bad guys have an earthquake machine. Whether Nolan goes for a No Man's Land route is another story.

    From what I've seen and heard from my sources. Bane uses an earthquake machine at a football game and causes nearly the entire field to collapse, he then gives a speech to the terrified crowd while his mercenaries/League of Shadows keep the crowd in place, then executes someone in front of the crowd. I'm guessing the person he executes is someone important and someone we already know.

    Also I've heard from reliable sources that Miranda Tate stabs Batman in City Hall(I think) as her reveal as Talia. I'm really hoping the reveal has her quoting Ras "If someone stands in the way of true justice, you simply walk up behind them and stab them in the heart." before she stabs him and we see Batman give an "oh crap" face as he hears it and realizes who she is.

    I've also heard rumors we might get a Dick Grayson cameo either as a football player or as an orphaned boy at Bruce's orphaned boys fundraiser dinner at his mansion. But those are just rumors and I wouldn't be surprised if they turned out to be false. That said I wouldn't mind Bruce meeting a young Dick and telling him they'll talk latter or something.
