Marion Cotillard

Although Cotillard doesn't reveal too much plot details of the anticipated superhero film, she gives a clue that Miranda Tate is not an alias for villainous Talia al Ghul.

Marion Cotillard recently spoke up about the character she portrays in "The Dark Knight Rises". While many fans have been speculating that her character Miranda Tate is actually an alias for Talia al Ghul, the Oscar-winning actress hinted that it is not true.

Speaking to MTV News, Cotillard revealed that her character in the highly anticipated movie is not taken from the original comic. "Well, actually, it was not based off of a character in the comic," she said during the New York premiere of "Contagion". Asked if she was telling the truth, the actress simply replied, "Yes, I am."

Cotillard has been reported to tackle the role as villainous Tate, which is believed to be the disguise for al Ghul, the daughter of the late League of Assassins leader, Ra's. The character of Tate is not featured in the DC comics, but al Ghul is strongly related to the history of Bruce Wayne a.k.a the Caped Crusader.

Apart from speaking about her role, the actress who plays opposite Johnny Depp in "Public Enemies" expressed her excitement of working on the Christopher Nolan-directed project. "It's amazing to work on Christopher Nolan's set. I'm so happy that I'm working with him again," so she gushed.

"I could do tons of movies with him," the 35-year-old Paris-born actress who worked together with Nolan in "Inception" continued. "It's a huge project but at the same time, it's like a family crew. He's worked with them for such a long time, so you really feel like you're on a family set."

"Dark Knight Rises" is scheduled to arrive in U.S. theaters on July 20, 2012. Christian Bale reprises his role as Batman, while Tom Hardy plays the villainous Bane. In addition, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anne Hathaway portray John Blake and Catwoman resepectively.
