Gary Oldman has been doing the press rounds for "Red Riding Hood" and naturally, he's been grilled about "The Dark Knight Rises," but the veteran actor has been playing it cool and not spilling too many details on Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated and secretive sequel. What we do know is that Tom Hardy will be playing Bane and Anne Hathaway will be taking on Catwoman, though current rumors suggest she will be an ally instead of a foe. And now Oldman has hinted that another villain in the movie will be ripped from the classic pages of the comics.

Rutger Hauer Also Says He's Not Likely To Reprise His RoleAll we know so far about "The Dark Knight Rises" is that Christian Bale will play Bruce Wayne, Tom Hardy will take on the villain role of Bane and Anne Hathaway will purr as Catwoman. But that hasn't stopped speculation from running wild and one of the longest rumors knocking around the film is that Talia al Ghul is one of the major female roles still to be cast. If true, we speculated it would likely mean she would team with Bane to seek revenge on Batman for killing her father, Ra's Al Ghul, from "Batman Begins." Badass Digest recently spilled that according to their sources, Talia will head up The League Of Shadows and Catwoman will fight alongside Batman. And while we'll have to wait to see if that's accurate, Liam Neeson has confirmed that he's not been asked to return for the sequel.

Granted, this is a little thin and it could ultimately mean pretty much nothing, but considering the plot details for "The Dark Knight Rises" will likely be under lock and key for a while yet, we'll take what we can get.

Lists are subjective. That's the joy of them, to some degree -- you get to see the tastes of others, and hopefully pick up a few tips for things you may have overlooked. And you're never going to find a list that you agree with 100%, particularly when the stakes are bigger -- lists of 'greatest films' or 'greatest directors' are a veritable minefield of disputes and feuds. But that doesn't change the fact that some lists are just dumb.

Granted, it's not much to go on at this point but considering there is some background to a 3D "Inception," it's not entirely unbelievable.

Nothing Confirmed Just YetUpdate: THR confirms that Marion Cotillard is in discussions for "The Dark Knight Rises" but that "nothing has been confirmed yet." Christopher Nolan is apparently on the hunt for a love interest for Bruce Wayne with Kate Winslet and the previously linked Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts all reading/meeting with the director in recent weeks. Should Cotillard sign on she would start shooting in June and wrap in November. So this writer's guess that it might be a smaller role is way off -- has Bruce Wayne found his love?

Ah, "Memento." The sophomore feature of a filmmaker that, for better or worse, continues to work in Hollywood with mainstream appeal, while he, as Guillermo del Toro puts it, manages to "still remain strange." Beginning with "Memento" and now with the Oscar-nominated, "Inception" Christopher Nolan's films always seem to leave us scratching our heads -- but he, and we, wouldn't have it any other way.
