Re: Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate VIII (Team Frenchie Edition)
I was sure that Talia was going to be revealed later, but I was still totally onboard with the whole "Bane is the son of Ra's" thing, even with Bane's comments that he "didn't see the sun until he was already a man", even when we learn that the child had a protector (which didn't really sink in until the second viewing). I guess the first time around I thought the protector was Ra's. I think. It's hard to keep track with these Nolan mysteries.
Since they made such a big deal about Bane, then made such a big deal about the child, of course most of us figured they were one in the same. So it wasn't until the eleventh hour reveal when we realized :doh they never said the child was a boy.
So I gotta hand it to Nolan on this one. Kinda reminds me of the Green Goblin mystery on "Spectacular Spider-Man" where even the die-hard fans had no idea.
