As reported by movie sites like Screen Rant and following Joseph Gordon-Levitt's addition to the cast of The Dark Knight Rises (though no role has been specified yet), Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan have officially signed in another young talent into the film, in the form of English actress Juno Temple! Like JGL, her role hasn't been specified, but rumors have been fueling around in the interwebz that she may land the part of playing a female sidekick to someone. A lot of hands point to Selina Kyle's (Anne Hathaway) partner and one-time Catwoman replacement in the comics, Holly Robinson!
If you can see where this is leading, then you'd know I'm all in favor of that role landing in Ms. Temple's lap. It's realistic and it makes more sense that Holly will be in the film, seeing as she appeared for the first time working as a prostitue alongside Selina in Batman: Year One, and Nolan draws heavy inspiration from that source material as well as other classic Bat-books. So if Juno Temple plays Holly, I'm going to be very interested in seeing how she helps Hathaway's Selina Kyle in the path to becoming the feline rogue/ adversary/ love interest of Christian Bale's Batman/ Bruce Wayne. We'll just have to wait and see for official confirmation, so for additional reading, you can visit the source post over at Screen Rant!
