Rumor Has It! Nolan To Cast One of These Six Women as a Batman Villain

12 November 2010 6:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Just a few days ago we told you that in addition to shooting in Chicago, Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming entry in his Batman franchise, The Dark Knight Rises will begin principal photography in New Orleans in April of 2011. The only firm casting that we know of, outside of the returning cast is the addition of Tom Hardy (Inception), and we’re still not privy to which role he will be playing in the film.

Now, Deadline reports that Natalie Portman (Black Swan, Thor), Naomi Watts (Dream House), Rachel Weisz (The Whistleblower), Anne Hathaway (One Day), Keira Knightley (A Dangerous Method) and Blake Lively (Green Lantern) are vying for two completely different female lead roles in The Dark Knight Rises. One of the roles will be Bruce Wayne’s new love interest, and the other will be a villain.

Rumor Mill: Charlize Theron and Vera Farmiga Sought for The Dark Knight Rises

4 November 2010 7:37 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Considering the information lock-down that Warner Bros. and director Christopher Nolan are likely installing for The Dark Knight Rises, their upcoming sequel to The Dark Knight, fans will likely have to hear many rumors before any true details are presented (a "Marion Cotillard to play Catwoman or Talia Al Ghul" rumor already floated around in August). The latest rumor claims that Charlize Theron, Vera Farmiga, and The Burning Plain actress Kacie Thomas are being sought for two female lead roles in the highly-anticipated sequel. While the rumor remains unsubstantiated, the roles the actresses are rumored for definitely draw interest.

Charlize Theron for The Dark Knight Rises?

3 November 2010 4:00 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This one is still very much in the rumour department, but it is being reported that Charlize Theron is in talks to appear in Batman 3 (sorry, The Dark Knight Rises) as Detective Sarah Essen, a potential love interest for Gary Oldman’s Commissioner Jim Gordon.

In a key Batman comic book story, Batman: Year One, Sarah Essen has an affair with the married then-Lieutenant Gordon, before being murdered by the Joker. It is unclear at this point how Detective Essen will be involved in the story and of course we will confirm and expand on this story as we hear more.

Meanwhile, Kacie Thomas (The Burning Plain) and Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Departed) are being talked up as possible love interests for Bruce Wayne. Kacie Thomas looks a little on the young side and although Farmiga is only a year older than Christian Bale, the form »

Hugh Jackman In 'X-Men: First Class' & 'The Dark Knight Rises' Casting In Today's Rumor Roundup

3 November 2010 6:31 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

With "X-Men: First Class" currently shooting and "The Dark Knight Rises" gearing up production as well, there are bound to be more than a few rumors floating around regarding both franchises. But which rumors are true? Which ones are totally bogus?

Take a recent "First Class" rumor, for example. Earlier this week, buzz started building that Hugh Jackman might have a cameo in the "X-Men" prequel, based on a driver's claim that he drove the actor to an airport near the film's supposed shooting location in Georgia.

But fans' heightened hopes for a Wolverine cameo took a dive with an official response from producer Bryan Singer, who tells the Coventry Telegraph: "He's not in the movie, he's in the Wolverine movies."

"X-Men hasn't started shooting in Georgia yet," he continued. "If Hugh was in Georgia, it wasn't for this movie."

So, let's consider one rumor shelved for now and turn »

Now that we know that "Batman 3" is actually called "The Dark Knight Rises" and that it has Tom Hardy (Inception) on board and will not feature The Riddler, it's time to finish putting together the rest of the cast. Cbm has learned that Charlize Theron has been approached to play Detective Sarah Essen, who is partnered with James Gordon. The two end up having an affair and she is eventually murdered by The Joker. It was hinted that she is the real mother of Barbara Gordon (aka Batgirl). Meanwhile Vera Farmiga and Kacie Thomas have already auditioned for the role of Julie Madison, who is a socialite engaged to Bruce Wayne. She is not aware of Wayne's secret identity and is often used as a pawn in the vampiric Monk's battle with Batman. She has also been associated with the villain Clayface. »

In My latest round-up of bits and pieces, we today learned that The Hobbit has gathered further cast members.

James Nesbitt (pictured) will play Bofur, described as a disarmingly forthright, funny and occasionally brave dwarf.

In an official statement, director Peter Jackson said: "James's charm, warmth and wit are legendary as is his range as an actor in both comedic and dramatic roles. We feel very lucky to be able to welcome him as one of our cast."

In addition newcomer Adam Brown will play Ori, another of the Company of Dwarves which sets off to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the dragon Smaug.

Jackson commented: "Adam is a wonderfully expressive actor and has a unique screen presence. I look forward to seeing him bring Ori to life."

They join a number of other actors recently announced for the two-part film adaptation of Tolkien's novel.

2 November 2010 1:39 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's been so many rumors that've flown around "The Dark Knight Rises" that... well, it's just pretty nuts. Everyone's talking away about what female character Christopher Nolan will be dragging up into his Batman story line for the sequel, along with who he's auditioning. This rumor could be doing nothing more than just blowing smoke up our asses, but it could easily be true. You'll see what I mean as you read on. Charlize Theron, who is a client, has been approached to play a Detective named Sarah Essen--a love interest for Jim Gordon. Actresses Kacie Thomas and Vera Farmiga have auditioned for the character role of Julie Madison, a love interest for Bruce Wayne. If Sarah Essen seems familiar, then you've at least read up on Batman: Year One. She's the new detective who rolls into town back in Gordon's early days in Gotham and ends up having a »

Charlize Theron May Be Batgirl's Step-Mother In Batman 3

2 November 2010 11:45 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It sounds like director Christopher Nolan may have decided that his next Batman movie needs more female characters, or rather more than one. On the previous two Batman films the only female character of any note was Rachel Dawes, and she existed mostly to be rescued by Batman. For the sequel, there could be a several new female roles, probably because Batman needs more women to rescue. Comic Book Movie claims that the script for the third movie includes a character named Detective Sarah Essen, set to serve as a love interest for top cop Jim Gordon, father of Batgirl Barbara Gordon. Word is that Charlize Theron has been approached to play the part. Their source further indicates that a new love interest for Bruce Wayne is being cast, a character named Julie Madison which both Vera Farmiga and Kacie Thomas have auditioned for.

'The Dark Knight Rises' Rumor: Charlize Theron, Vera Farmiga & Kacie Thomas In The Mix For Roles

2 November 2010 11:43 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So, before everyone starts weighing in, just bear in mind this rumor comes from Comic Book Movie who take non-vetted contributions from any yahoo on the Internet whether it be total bullshit or not. That said, they have been on the right track a few times and some of these casting rumors for Christopher Nolan's forthcoming "The Dark Knight Rises" could possibly make sense. Anyway, according to their source, Charlize Theron, Vera Farmiga and Kacie Thomas ("The Burning Plain") are in the mix for a couple of parts. First up, Theron has been "approached" for the role of Detective Sarah… »

Theron & Farmiga Rumored for Roles in 'The Dark Knight Rises'

2 November 2010 11:29 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Since it's a slow news week so far, why not toss around some rumored names for Christopher Nolan's recently titled sequel The Dark Knight Rises. It's been mentioned elsewhere previously that Nolan has been meeting with actresses to take a lead female role in the anticipated franchise sequel. Obviously since Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal) won't return, at least one female lead role needs to show up, but a new rumor has two major female roles looking to be cast. Comic Book Movie reports Charlize Theron is being considered for one while Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air) and Kacie Thomas (The Burning Plain) are up for the second. Read on! Theron is apparently up for the role of Detective Sarah Essen, a love interest for Commissioner Jim Gordon. In the comics, Essen is partnered with Gordon and they begin a romantic affair. Theron seems a little young for Gordon, »

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ With Charlize Theron & Vera Farmiga?

2 November 2010 11:22 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises set to film this spring, get ready for the onslaught of casting rumors, contradictions, and announcements up until the first day of production. Our latest comes from Comic Book Movie, in which an agency source told them a few actresses in contention for two separate roles.

One of their clients, Charlize Theron, “has been approached to play a Detective Named Sarah Essen–a love interest for Jim Gordon,” the police commissioner played by Gary Oldman. But didn’t The Dark Knight end with him and his happily traumatized family intact? Cbm has a possible answer below:

Sarah Essen first appears in Batman #405, part of the Batman: Year One storyline. She is a detective partnered with then-lieutenant James Gordon. She and the married Gordon start a brief affair. She is murdered by the Joker and is hinted as the real Mother of Barbara Gordon (batgirl).

The Dark Knight Rises Female Casting Rumors

2 November 2010 11:14 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Batman 3 casting is ramping up and actresses are being eyed if a rumor popping up at Cbm is on the money.

According to their source, a friend of someone who works at a casting agency, Kacie Thomas (The Burning Plain) and Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air) have already auditioned for the role of Julie Madison in Christopher's Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises aka Batman 3. In the comics, Julie is a socialite who was engaged to Bruce Wayne. She became entangled in villain plots of Monk (a vampire) and Clayface. Bruce Wayne is a free and clear single man in the third Batman film so this does fit the current narrative path.

The source also claims Charlize Theron has been approached to play Sarah Essen, a police detective who will find herself in a love affair with a married Jim Gordon. This one is a bit harder to »

Rumor: Charlize Theron, Vera Farmiga, and Kacie Thomas Eye Love Interest Roles in The Dark Knight Rises

2 November 2010 10:48 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

You may have noticed that a majority of films make use of “love interests” as a means of creating some sort of romantic/dramatic pull.  This isn’t anything particularly new or exciting.  In fact, it’s the oldest trick in the narrative storytelling book.  That said, when Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises does it, it’s news.  I mention all of this because there are rumors swirling about the Internet today (hard to believe, right?) that implicate Charlize Theron, Vera Farmiga, and Kacie Thomas (The Burning Plain) as being connected in one way or another with Nolan’s third Batman film.

For info on the extent of these rumors as well as the “love interest roles” they are associated with, hit the jump.  The Dark Knight Rises will see the return of Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, and Morgan FreemanTom Hardy has also been cast »

Filed under: Movie News, Cinematical

It's a pretty slow news day, which means it's a great time for another update on the next Batman movie, right? Today's rumor comes on the heels of a recent announcement that Christopher Nolan and his Bat-clan were on the lookout for a new leading lady. If the sources over at Comic Book Movie are correct, the upcoming film -- recently revealed to be called 'The Dark Knight Rises' -- could actually feature two female roles, with one of them being linked to Bruce Wayne and the other linked to Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman).

The site (via an agency source) claims filmmakers are looking at Charlize Theron for the role of a Detective Sarah Essen, who, in the comics, is a character that winds up partnering up with Gordon and subsequently carrying on an affair with him.
