Oscar winner Marion Cotillard will play high-powered socialite Miranda Tate in the latest Batman film.

She and her Inception co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt signed to reteam with director Christopher Nolan last year, but details of their characters in The Dark Knight Rises have been kept under wraps – until now.

Speculation suggested Cotillard would portray Talia Al-Ghul and Gordon-Levitt The Holiday Killer, but now it appears both will play straightforward characters.

According to, Cotillard's Miranda Tate is a Wayne Enterprises board member eager to help Batman's alter-ego Bruce Wayne resume his father's philanthropic endeavors.

Meanwhile, Gordon-Levitt will play John Blake, a Gotham City cop assigned to special duty under the command of Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman).

We're a little bummed we won't see Joseph as the Joker or a villian. We think he would have made a great one. Or maybe Christopher Nolan is just trying to trick us…
