Batman fans aren't stupid. No matter how hard Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan tried, we saw through their lies. Before and during the promotion for The Dark Knight Rises, they along with star Marion Cotillard blatantly lied about a major reveal in the film. According to the French actress, she knew it was wrong, but it had to be done.
In the final act of The Dark Knight Rises, it's revealed that Cotillard's character (Miranda Tate) isn't what she seems. Bruce Wayne wasn't the only one with a secret identity. Miranda was really Talia al Ghul, the estranged daughter of Ra's (Liam Neeson). It's a fact that many of us picked up on way before the movie opened. But Cotillard and her peers continuously denied it.
Over at MTV, they caught up with the actress, and got her to own up to her deception. They pointed out that a year ago, she told them her TDKR character wasn't in the comics, was a good guy and she swore she wasn't lying. But we all know how that turned out.
Either way, the actress doesn't feel bad about it. She didn't want to ruin the surprise, and we don't blame her. We wouldn't want to feel the wrath of Nolan.
Check out her half-hearted apology below.
