Nolan to Meet with Actresses for 'Dark Knight Rises' Roles

Christopher Nolan is scheduled to meet with six actresses during the next couple weeks to cast two female lead roles in The Dark Knight Rises.  Deadline reports that the list of candidates consists of actresses Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley.

Nolan is keeping the roles under wrap, just as he did when drafting Tom Hardy to come aboard to most likely play a villain. All that is known for now is that one of the roles is a love interest for Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne and the other is a villain.
Last week, rumor had it that Charlize Theron and Vera Farmiga were leading candidates to nab the two roles. It seems now that they’re no longer in the running...although there’s no telling what exactly Nolan has going on behind the scenes.  Early fan sentiment favors Weisz as the villain and Watts as the love interest.
So with this new list of candidates unveiled, who do you think Nolan should choose? Or are there other actresses that should be added to the consideration list?
