It takes more than major characters to make a movie work because all the action takes place in a world filled with background characters. Still, the casting news for Batman 3: The Dark Knight Rises seems to be slowing down to a trickle. We’ve known for a while about Tom Hardy as Bane and Anne Hathaway slinking into the Catwoman outfit, and there’s still some curiosity about whether Joseph Gordon-Levitt is or isn’t Alberto Falcone, but the big buzz has to come to an end sooner or later.
While it might not be earth-shattering news, Showblitz has revealed that Juno Temple is definitely a member of the cast, although that bit of casting suspense was milked for all it was worth. Temple will apparently be joining the Batman world as a “street-smart Gotham girl.” Considering the role is more character description than actual name, I wouldn’t expect Temple to get a whole lot of screen time.
The Dark Knight Rises might not give her a lot of face time on the screen, but Temple is going to have plenty of time to stand in the spotlight. She’ll also be appearing in William Friedkin’s Killer Joe and a horror movie called Jack and Diane, as well as finding out how well a crown rests upon her head when she portrays Queen Anne in the remake of The Three Musketeers.
