Marion Cotillard in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ after all? [Update]

Update 02/14/11: Marion Cotillard’s rep has confirmed that she’s “in talks”. Read the full story here.

Back in January it was reported that Marion Cotillard was pregnant with her first child. After being on rumored short lists for The Dark Knight Rises, many believed her pregnancy would prevent her from joining the cast. Well now, according to French publication Le Figaro, Cotillard may be joining The Dark Knight Rises cast after all. The article is in French, but here’s a rough Google translation:

Marion Cotillard in “Batman 3”. The actress, who is expecting a child in the spring with Guillaume Canet, will be scarce this year. She’ll do a single film and her choice fell on Batman 3. This blockbuster produced by Warner Bros.. enables her to work with the director Christopher Nolan, with whom she had turned very successful sci-fi Inception. Marion Cotillard will join the filming this summer in Los Angeles. She will share the bill with Anne Hathaway.

Marion is expected to give birth this May, but she would have enough time to prepare for The Dark Knight Rises later this year– it’s shooting from May until November. With the heavy rumors that Talia will be in the movie, is Marion Cotillard the second female lead?
