Juno Temple's Role in The Dark Knight Rises may be a Familiar DC Character

Tiaras aren't likely to be part of the wardrobe.

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?

I don't mind this one bit. Let's see if her inclusion will make the movie better.

Seems very likely in my opinion.

Do we need Holly so early in this?

Looking forward to an official trailer already. So excited

I don't know much about Holly, but as one of the people who didn't like "The Dark Knight" it sounds like they are going down a similar path of trying to shove too many characters into one movie.

Who is Juno Temple, and why does she talk like a 16 year old

I dunno... *is skeptical*

I loved Juno in Kaboom! 
 
*Back to topic* 
 
I really don't hope she's Catwoman. Anne Hathaway needs to be the Kitty. A lot of people have faith in Nolan not fucking it up...I guess I'm one of those. >.>

Please Please don't screw up ANOTHER Batman Movie.

I wonder if she'll be an lesbian prostitute with a crush on Catwoman, like she was in the comics.

I kinda figured this when I first saw the updated cast.  "Streetwise" Gotham girl indeed!  That spells Holly Robinson to a T! Good lord, this movie is gonna be great. Gosh, is it July 2012 yet?

What is "abundantly clear" about what she said? She said she "can't talk about it" ...that's all. 
 
I would like to see her play Harley as a nod to Heath Ledger but Holly as a character is welcome as well. I just think Harley being a character in the movie would be a pleasant surprise for everyone, she's quite popular afterall.

Ur all wrong shes gonna be ROBIN >;O

Seems too early to bring Holly in, wouldn't it be just as likely that she is Batgirl or Spoiler? She could pull off Stephanie Brown.

She's probably one of those supporting characters that only have 10 - 15 minutes of screen-time. Whatever the role is, I bet it's still significant.

Do I have any theories? Mmmmmmm. Nooooooooo.

#19 Posted by GraveSp (314 posts) - - Show Bio

Huntress?  It isn't likely but possible i guess

Move over Dark Knight Rises, Avengers is taking over. I'm losing interest in this movie fast!

so the second catwoman can appear, but not Dick grayson?  got it

I don't remember who Juno Temple is.  I have only seen one of her movies (Other Boleyn Girl), but its been a while.  Will have to see if netflix still has it.  Boy, I hope they do some explaining in the movie as I don't remember her at all.

Never heard of this person before.  Not really interested though in whatever role she might play.

Don't you think they might be overdoing it a little. Do not get me wrong i am on pins and needles for this flick, but there seems to be a shitload of characters. Is Nolan trying to cram every single bat character under the sun into this?

Personally I think this is okay. Using comic characters who fit the bill for what the script requires instead of creating someone new (unless the comic character might fit the bill, but be near unrecognisable). The only problem I see though is people hyping it up to make it seem like there are 20 main characters, when really some of these roles might just be bit-parts or in more of an ensemble sense (say, five known actors playing named comic cops under Gordon but acting less as main characters and more like supporting cast)

I thought Temple would be playing Vicki Vale, not the second Catwoman.

Sadly, I'm feeling that this movie is going to "Spider-Man 3" the franchise and ruin all the good will the first two movies created.

I didn't like the Dark Knight at all. Overlong, too many characters and just... ah, something about it that made me dislike it a hell of lot considering how much I loved Batman Begins. Barring the inclusion of Tom Hardy as Bane, I don't really think much about this third one. 
And this is really just me being a surly old git but she says awesome too damn much so I'm already disliking her.

Will the character be this..... maybe its not main stream enough to pull off, then again...... maybe.
