I really did not like the fact that Marion Cotillard was cast as Talia. She did not portray Talia as the physical adept, criminal mastermind with the undying, but also torn love for both her father and Batman, like she is in the comics.
Even though many would disagree, saying that she would just be eyecandy for the movie, I think that Angelina Jolie would have been the best choice to play Talia. She has played many characters that reminiscent of Talia such as her roles in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Mr. & Mrs. Smith,and Wanted.
She even looks a lot like her physically, including the strong, angular jaw; piercing, slightly slanted eyes; edged, gaunt cheeks; and slim and tall, but also muscular body type.
Perhaps if a reboot of the Batman movie series were to happen within the next 5 years (which I highly doubt), Angelina should play Talia.
