It looks like Batman 3 is off and running! Christopher Nolan finally confirmed he's directing and has already started casting, having recently added Inception star Tom Hardy to the mix as the film's villain.

Now, Nolan is turning his attention to the female lead character, reports Moviehole:

"Several young ('Late 20′s, early 30′s') ladies are meeting with the Caped Crusader's resuscitator this week to talk about the new film. Interestingly enough, quite a few of the ladies don't actually know what role they're being asked to read for/meet Nolan about."

So who could the new Bat-babe be? Moviehole claims to know some of the potential names, but has declined to comment out of respect for their reps. But they were able to let this little tidbit out:

"What I can say is that Nolan is open to casting a fresh face as the female lead; he's not necessarily bringing in the big guns."

We say interesting. What do you say? More importantly, who do you think the character will be? We're hearing a lot of purring these days!
