When Juno Temple was cast in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, it didn’t take too deep an understanding of the Bat-mythos to hazard a good guess about who her blonde, “street-wise Gotham gal” character would be. Seeing as how Catwoman was going to be in the movie, too, she’d just have to be Holly “Catwoman II” Robinson, wouldn’t she? If the evidence is so clear for Talia al Ghul’s presence in the flick, then it’s just blatant in this case, isn’t it?
Comicbook Movie pulled some quotes out of Temple’s Total Film interview which seem to make it abundantly clear that she’s playing Holly. When asked directly about it, she uttered the following…
I can't talk about that. But I think it's going to be [frick]ing unbelievable. [Christopher Nolan] is awesome! There's something really gentlemanly about him. He's got an insane, incredible vision going on. Just getting the opportunity to work with him is awesome.
Neither confirming nor denying, but... c'mon, now.
I sincerely doubt we’re going to see any of the character’s later crime fighting business in the movie, but I do think this means that the portions involving Selina will probably take their cues from the character’s re-worked origin in BATMAN: YEAR ONE. That, incidentally, was when Holly was still an under-aged prostitute (a job that certainly necessitates street smarts.) Most likely, this rounds out the identities of the whole cast, unless there does end up being more to JGL's character then him simply being a super cop. Do you maniacs have any theories?
