I was trying to figure out when it was addressed as well....
Vera Farmiga looks a lot like Maggie Gylenhal, based on the quick Google image search I just did. Nolan is certainly giving Bruce Wayne a "type".
Can someone explain this part to me? I don't recall Batgirl being addressed.
...Essen might be shown to be the real mother of Batgirl. Odd, as we thought Nolan already addressed the Batgirl story, in Batman Begins, perhaps not.
Stupid conjecture about the storyline. Making Batman go after a mere serial killer would be lame. Nolan's stories are more epic than that.
Definitely excited for the movie. No way it'll live up to TDK, though. I don't think.
I don't really know the Batman/DC universe all that well. In Nolan's movies so far, the villains have been motivated by psychology. Their physical forms were a result of their psychosis or used as a means for furthering their psychotic agenda. This seems to be an important difference, because with other characters, it's the other way around; their psychosis is a result of their physical form. Guys like Killer Croc, The Penguin, and Man Bat - their looks defined their behavior. Nolan seems to stay away from that.
So with that said, what other villains exist in Batman's world who are driven psychology first? The Riddler? Cat Woman?
Poison Ivy might be an interesting choice. An eco-terrorist so psychotic that even folks like ELF are afraid of her?

I used to post a lot. Then vBulletin made it impossible to follow updates to subscribed threads. Now I don't.
More news about two lead female roles to be cast and the potential actresses:
Rachel Weisz, please. Natalie Portman is great, but perhaps a bit too young. Namoi Watts is the only other actress of the six that I could see in the next movie.
Go Timbers! Timbers Army - RCTID!
Go Ducks! WTD!
Go Blazers! RIP CITY!
I had to re-read Nolan's quotes on Hathaway and Hardy to see if they were cut-and-pastes of the same comments subsituting the actors names.
Catwoman / Never been a big fan of that character, regardless of who's playing her. This one's all on Nolan. Hope he pulls it off.
