The Dark Knight’s Leading Ladies?
With The Dark Knight looming large this week, Cinematical’s resident "geek beat" writer Elisabeth Rappe recently put together a list of the ladies she’d like to see introduced in the new Batman film franchise. Among her thoughtful reflections on potential leading ladies for Gotham’s favorite superhero are Catwoman ("she needs to be redeemed from that awful Halle Berry film"), Poison Ivy ("Nolan could revise her into a true eco-terrorist, a scientist who takes ‘green living’ a little too seriously") and the suggestion with the most potential, in my opinion, Talia al-Ghul:
Talia al-Ghul is another potential villain for Batman to take on – but her role in the comics is never so clear cut. She is continuously torn between loyalty to her father and her love for Batman. This complex relationship seems ideal for Nolan’s world, and Ra’s al Ghul’s apparent death in Batman Begins would lend an added dimension. Bonus points if they actually went so far as to bless the union, if you get what I mean.
