However, actor and executive producer Topher Grace fought for the film, mega-producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer from Imagine Entertainment came in and encouraged Grace to keep the cut he wanted and he got the final boost of approval from Ryan Kavanaugh, the CEO of Relativity Media who released the movie.

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 w...
