Marion Cotillard comments on ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ role, says she’s not from the comics

Josh Horowitz caught up with Marion Cotillard last night at the premiere of her new movie Contagion. Cotillard has been cast as Miranda Tate, a Wayne Enterprises board member, but fans have speculated that may just be a cover for her true identity. Horowitz asked if Cotillard is basing her The Dark Knight Rises role off of the comics, and here’s what she had to say:

Well, actually, it was not based off of a character in the comic,” she told us when we asked if she took cues for her character from the Batman comics. When we asked if she was telling us the truth, she answered with a smile: “Yes, I am.”

And if we talk to her in a year from now, will we be able to say she was lying to us? “No,” she said emphatically. “No!”
