While many of you may not know Teresa Palmer by name, you will definitely recognize the long-time Hollywood starlet! The actress has been on the verge of break-out stardom for years now and may soon get the chance now!
In a recent interview with ScreenRant, the actress expressed her desire to appear in Ben Affleck's upcoming The Batman solo movie rumored to be hitting theaters in 2018. While you may find this kind of odd, and say a lot of actresses would like to be in a Batman film. But wait, there is more! See Palmer, back in 2007 was already set to appear in a brand new DC Universe as the legendary Talia Al Ghul in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. Which would have seen Armie Hammer as Batman along with a very different line-up of actors and characters than what we see today in Zack Snyder's vision. Obviously the Mad Max: Fury Road director's vision never made it to the big-screen.
Now.... there is a chance we may see Teresa Palmer in the new DC Extended Universe as she revealed her desire to still be in a badass DC Film:
“I was going to be her. I think Marion Cotillard played, I don’t know how to pronounce her last name by the way, um she played Talia Al Ghul in one of the Batman’s, I remember thinking, okay well, obviously she’s going to play Talia Al Ghul, but if there’s ever an opportunity I would absolutely love it. Put it out there. Can you put it out there for me?”
While the chances of her playing Talia Al Ghul are probably slim, there is a chance she could appear as any number of other interesting DC and Batman characters, if Affleck feels she is right for a role.
I've been a huge fan of Palmer for years and would absolutely love to see her in a DC Film, but for now we will just have to wait and see if she makes the cut. We can next see her on the big-screen next month in the Mel Gibson directed epic war film Hacksaw Ridge.
