Marion Cotillard is the It Girl in the latest issue of the The Hollywood Reporter magazine, and among the various topics Cotillard discusses, such as her childhood, motherhood, her Cannes debut and more, she opens up about the mysterious role of Miranda Tate in “The Dark Knight Rises.”

She told the magazine that she was upset when she learned “Rises” was being filmed when her first child with actor-director Guillaume Canet was due. “I’m like ‘Wait a minute, his next movie is supposed to be Batman!’ And I’ve always been obsessed with Batman…I called Chris and said, ‘My God, I can’t do that!'” Thankfully, “Rises” director Christopher Nolan was more than willing to wait on Cotillard.

Cotillard makes it known that Miranda Tate is a good character, not a villain. Cotillard also told the magazine that Tate is not Talia al Ghul, Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter, in disguise. Tate is a businesswoman who is focused on the ecological health of the world. According to Cotillard, Tate “is fascinated by Wayne Enterprises. They go through difficulties, and she wants to help provide the world clean energies. She’s a good guy.”
