But I guess they didn't do that since there were 2 female characters in the movie. I'm still wondering if the original plan was to have only 1 female character (because didn't they say that Nolan didn't want Catwoman first and Jonah has to fight tooth and nail to convince Chris?) but they had to split the characterization when it was decided to have 2 instead.
Oh well. It is what it is.
My impression was their first actual face to face meeting was at the ball. Bruce didn't even know her when she approached him at the ball (he had to guess who she is). Also, both Alfred and Fox were insisting to Bruce that she was "lovely" implying that he hasn't seen her yet.
Honestly, that's why I've been saying that I think the movie would have been much better had they cut Talia. Everything she does in the film could have been accomplished with Selina. Except you wouldn't have the twist ending "I'm really Ra's daughter" thing. But honestly, I would have been okay with that.
It would have streamlined the movie, and I wanted to see more of Selina anyways.
