It's a well-known fact that Christopher Nolan is borderline obsessive with keeping every aspect of his films a secret until they're released. He often goes to great lengths to even keep his main actors in the dark about most details; however, in an ironic twist, the smallest actor in The Dark Knight Rises might have just dropped the biggest spoiler yet.
In an interview with My Entertainment World, 13-year-old Joey King let it slip who she will be playing in the last installment of Nolan's Batman trilogy, and the result should be very interesting for fans of the Caped Crusader.
"I play young Talia al Ghul. I can’t give too much away because I promised Mr. Nolan I wouldn’t say anything. There are too many secrets about the character and the movie," King told the site.
And in those three sentences, King unknowingly unleashed a huge detail for the film that Nolan can't be too happy about. It has been confirmed for months that Bane and Catwoman would be major players in the movie, but with a young Talia being included, it's very possible that a fully grown Talia will show up as well.
Talia al Ghul is best-known by comic book fans as the daughter of one of Batman's most dangerous enemies, Ra's al Ghul, who was played by Liam Neeson in 2005's Batman Begins. With Ra's being immortal in the comics, and Talia being fiercely loyal to him, it's possible that Neeson might just appear in The Dark Knight Rises after all. We'll just have to wait and see.
