Miranda Tate in The Dark Knight Rises
When Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard) appeared for the first time in 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises as a wealthy businesswoman and philanthropist, many viewers assumed that she was just a supporting character whose sole purpose was to give Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) some pep talk. But tables were turned when her true identity was revealed.
Miranda is actually Talia al Ghul, the daughter of Ra’s al Ghul, the main villain in the Dark Knight trilogy’s first instalment. Following the death of her father, Miranda took up his mantle as his heir and patiently sought Gotham City’s destruction with the aid of her equally malevolent Bane (Tom Hardy).
