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.

with the emotional past relationship of watts and ledger, perhaps watts is being cast as Harley Quinn. Perhaps he's looking to tap into some of that raw emotion. Just a thought.
blake lively can't act... but i guess that won't stop anyone from hiring her anyways.
It won't matter because whoever he casts will be perfect.
Naomi Watts and Natalie Portman! All the way!
Either of them could be villains, or love interests... But Id love to see Naomi Watts as a normal "good character" who is driven to villainy due to tumultuous circumstances ala Harvey Dent...
Just not Natalie Portman, Please! I want to enjoy this movie.
they're all good actresses, but i think it depends on the role they're going to play. and like others said i liked the Charlize Theron and Vera Farminga idea, but i think these actresses will do good too
talia al-ghul is not a villian. she married bruce in a ceremony performed by Ra's in order to keep Batman out of Ra's plans according to the graphic novel BATMAN SON OF THE DEMON. if talia al-ghul returns her role will be as a wife that bruce wayne/Batman forgot about. i would have the Riddler as the main villian and when he commits crimes his riddles implicate Batman. Harley Quinn would work beautifully also as she could team up with the Riddler so she can exact revenge on Batman and the Gotham City Police Department for the arrest of her psychotic boyfriend the Joker. this is where the Riddler comes into play with the riddles left behind from his robbery-homicides implicating Batman as the culprit forcing Batman to clear his name
tough call they all are well liked and have acted with experience
my guess is the female villain may be ras as ghul daughter tiana and she would be casted best for rachel weisz however if we go another charcter love interest perhaps catwoman but my guess would be cool if it was poison ivy but with nolan he usually picks the more psyche character which probably would be ras a ghul daught tiana.
love interest probably naomi watts because she fits the age catergory for christian bale as for her role i have no clue unless nolan decides to introduce the female detective who works with gordon
as for tom hardy im going to take a gamble and say it might be hush as the villian whatever nolan does im sure it will be good
Blake Lively as interest & Keira Knighley as Villian!
Blake lively is already playing in the green lantern movie.
This is the type of conversation that makes us fanboys look bad!
Just to lighten things up, let's say Tracy Lords and John Travolta in another fat suit.
I hate Keira Knightley. She is not welcome to ruin the Batman franchise. Thank you.
Villain = Natalie Portman
Love Interest = Kiera Knightley
Not Naomi Watts, please -- too goody two-shoes for either role.
Also, breaking today, word is that Natalie Portman is looking to direct her own female version of "superbad" with Anne Hathaway possibly attached to the movie, so I would think chances are they are most likely long shots. Blake Lively seems like her name was just thrown in the hat just for the hell of it. Knightley has a string of indies coming out over the course of 2011 including London Boulevard and Last Night and she may look to jump back into the blockbuster movie arena, especially since Nolan isn't going to go CGI crazy a la Pirates 3. But odds on faves are Weisz and Watts... for now.
Sounds to me like Catwoman and Harley Quinn! I hope I'm right about this! Harley Quinn seems to be the perfect fit for this movie, and she's never been done before.
I agree. It seems to be headed in that direction but we won't know til Nolan's ready to pull back the curtain. Quinn makes the most sense esp. after featuring the Joker in the last Batman movie. To that effect, Weisz would probably make the best out of the bunch he's interviewing.
I love Rachel Weisz! I could do without ever seeing Keira Knightley in anything ever again, but the rest are fine too.
Without knowing what roles are being cast, opinions on who should be cast are ridiculous. Actresses are not interchangeable.
If the villian is catwoman I'd go with anne hathaway simply because that smile is very chessire cat like. If it's Poision Ivy then Knightly all the way she was awesome in The Pirates movies and owned in Domino. However I really Like Natalie Portman and she can do bad*** well thanks to V for Vendetta. And Weisz was amusing in the first two Mummy movies. So hard to say they all could do very good roles. I trust nolan's casting thus far (with the exception of Maggie Gyllanhal. Not a fan of her in Knight) but those are my thoughts.
I dont like any of them. He should stick with Charlize Theron and Vera Farmiga.
Portman and Knightly are hot and both talented in their own respects. I see them more as love interests rather then villians, Weisz I could see as catwoman and watts as poison ivy. But that would depend on who the villian is. as far as miss hathaway. I can't really see her in any role in a batman movie. Coarse that was my sentiments with heth ledger.
I love em all. It just depends on what characters Nolan is lookin 4
OOOO! I hope he goes with Naomi Watts! I can totally see her in a batman movie!! =)
Aww, I liked the ideas of Charlize Theron and Vera Farmiga in "The Dark Knight Rises," oh well. Natalie Portman and Blake Lively, I don't think they would be right for this movie. Out of the remaining four, I like Keira Knightley and Naomi Watts the most. It would help if we knew what roles were up for grabs, but Christopher Nolan is a certified genius and I knew he will cast the right girl for the right role.
