Implausible Rumor of the Day
Buried in the news about Alberto Falcone was a little item that Juno Temple was believed to be up for a part in The Dark Knight Rises. Blastr.com believes it to be a female Robin, presumably Carrie Kelly from The Dark Knight Returns. Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale have both expressed an aversion to the entire concept of Robin in their movies, so I'm quite confident Juno Temple will not be playing any kind or Robin.
Since original Juno Temple blurb used the phrase "a street-smart Gotham girl," a much more likely part from the comics would be Holly Robinson. She's a long-time friend of Catwoman who first appeared in Batman: Year One as a teenage runaway/prostitute under the protection of Selina Kyle who actually stabs Bruce Wayne in the leg. Much later, Holly would go on to briefly assume the identity of Catwoman. You can read a lot more about Holly at wikipedia.
