Marion Cotillard as Talia Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises!

The Dark Knight Rises might be the highest-grossing Batman movie to date, but it’s certainly not considered the best by a huge segment of fans. In fact, many would agree that it was the worst installment in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy. There was one scene in particular that felt really awkward, even to fans who loved the movie - the death of Marion Cotillard's Talia Al Ghul.

While promoting her latest World War II romantic thriller, Allied, Cotillard talked to the French outlet Allocine about her character's death scene in The Dark Knight Rises:

We’re all in the same boat, and if sometimes it gets out of control, then everyone is involved. Sometimes there are failures, and when you see this on screen, you’re thinking: “Why? Why did they keep that take?” But either you blame everyone or nobody.

While the Academy Award winning actress admitted that the scene wasn't very impressive, she did feel that "people overreacted", as it was tough for her to be identified with just one scene. She explained, "When I’m doing the best I can to find the authenticity in every character that I’m playing, it’s tough to be known just for this scene."

The interview clip featured footage from a French TV show in which Cotillard participated in a humorous rap battle. When her opponent poked fun of the Talia Al Ghul death scene by saying, "The only thing worse than your rap is your death in Batman", the actress appeared to be pretty embarrassed before she managed to say, "That sucks!" She told the interviewer:

Yes, it’s important to know how to laugh about this, and also, there are worse things in life"¦ even if there are things that can hurt you. But I wasn’t really affected by this. I just thought the reaction was disproportionate, and it helps to laugh about it.
