The Dark Knight Rises casting news has been flying fast over the past few days with the latest being that Eva Green and Naomi Watts have apparently been locked into roles. While the news couldn't be confirmed (or debunked), there is no way of knowing what roles they will play if they are in fact a part of The Dark Knight Rises. However, there is speculation that Eva Green will play the villain Talia al Guhl and Naomi Watts will play love interest Vicki Vale.
Another story reveals that another group of high-profile actresses are in the testing process for The Dark Knight Rises. Anne Hathaway, Keira Knightley, Jessica Biel, Kate Mara and Charlotte Riley will all reportedly test for roles within the next two weeks. Gemma Arterton was also said to test for a role, although it seems unlikely now that she landed a lead role in Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.
Although this is also unconfirmed at this time, The Dark Knight Rises is said to have a shooting schedule starting on May 6, with post-production beginning on November 28. The new Batman adventure will shoot on location in Los Angeles, Detroit and the U.K., according to a report from last week.
There are also new details on the designs of a new Batmobile and a renovated Batcave. The new Tumbler is said to be "sleeker" although it will still house all of Batman's necessary gadgets. They will apparently go with a more modern look for the Batcave as well, setting up the "Batcomputer" and a new storage area for the "Batsuits." It has also been suggested that the "Batsuit" will be revamped as well.
