    Natascha Patrenko 

Natascha Patrenko

"How could you want to raise children in a city like this?"
Played by: Beatrice Rosen

The Prima Ballerina of a Russian Ballet Troupe, who Bruce briefly dates.

  • Ballet: The Prima Ballerina of a Russian Ballet Troupe.
  • Fake Russian: Beatrice Rosen is French-American.
  • Hidden Depths: She appears at first to be a piece of arm candy, but she engages in an intelligent debate with Harvey and Rachel about Batman and holds some pretty passionate views about vigilantism.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Justified because she's suntanning in a yacht.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Just look at her! She stands at five-foot-nine, and is an incredibly gorgeous ballerina.

    Mike Engel 

Mike Engel

"I'm Mike Engel for Gotham Tonight."
Played by: Anthony Michael Hall

A reporter for Gotham Cable News. He's captured by the Joker as a hostage/decoy, but survives after being rescued by Batman.
  • Ascended Extra: Aside from a small role in the film, he was more or less expanded in the viral campaign for The Dark Knight, having interviews with notable people like Harvey Dent on his show.
  • Bound and Gagged: By the Joker, but he and his camera crew, plus a few other people, are dressed up as the Joker's clowns in a Disguised Hostage Gambit. The Joker does this with other hostages as well at the top of the Trump Tower to trick the SWAT teams, but this trick fails on Batman due to Batman unmasking Engel first and realizing those dressed as clowns are hostages.
  • Catchphrase: The above quote.
  • Deadline News: Forced at one point to read commands to Gotham by The Joker. Subverted, as he survives the experience.
  • Expy: For some people, its Jack Ryder just without the insanity or powers.
  • Mouth of the Joker: Engel delivers the Joker's threats after being taken hostage following the hospital explosion. That includes the maniacal laughter that the Joker wrote down verbatim on the cue cards:
    Mike Engel: "I'm Mike Engel for Gotham Tonight. What does it take to make you people join in? You failed to kill the lawyer. I've got to get you off the bench..."
    The Joker: Bench...
    Mike Engel: "And into the game."
    The Joker: ...game.
    Mike Engel: "Come nightfall, this city is mine..."
    The Joker: Mine...
    Mike Engel: "... and anyone left here plays by my rules."
    The Joker: ...rules.
    Mike Engel: "If you don't want to be in the game... get out now.
    The Joker: ...get out now
    Mike Engel: "But the bridge and tunnel crowd are sure in for a surprise. Ha ha ha ha."

    Jen 

Jen

Played by: Juno Temple

A close friend of Selina Kyle.
  • The Ditz:
    • She never seems all that aware of all the bad things that Bane is up to throughout the movie.
    • She doesn't seem all that sharp a thief either.
  • Expy: Of Holly Robinson.
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Implied to be this but she's not exactly all that pure herself.
  • Morality Pet: For Selina, though she's also a partner in crime - Jen steals a guy's wallet, and then Selina knocks him out and takes his watch as well.

    Leonid Pavel 

Dr. Leonid Pavel

"Dr. Leonid Pavel, nuclear physicist."
Played by: Alon Aboutboul

"Nothing! I said nothing!"

A Russian nuclear scientist Bane has kidnapped.

    Bill Wilson 

Bill Wilson

"Was getting caught part of your plan?"
Played by: Aidan Gillen

"Dr. Pavel, I'm CIA."

A CIA agent tracking down Bane.

  • All There in the Manual: His name, Bill Wilson, was only revealed in the novelization.
  • Asshole Victim: Given his treatment of prisoners, even if they are evil, his own death is less likely to be mourned.
  • Badass Boast: "The flight plan I just filed with the Agency lists me, my men, Dr. Pavel here, but only one of you! First one to talk gets to stay on my aircraft!"
  • Character Death: In the plane crash.
  • Good Is Not Nice/Good Is Not Soft: This role is just a minor break from the type of characters Gillen portrayed in Game of Thrones and The Wire; though he's undeniably with the good guys, his methods are rather brutal, not to mention that he's a Smug Snake.
  • Large Ham
  • Oh Crap: His look when Bane boasts his plan includes crashing the plane; no survivors.
  • Smug Snake: He's too confident about his prisoners and his plane.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Wilson apparently doesn't believe that getting caught really was part of Bane's plan... in spite of the fact that he has quite obviously been double-crossed by the guy who handed over prisoners he said worked for Bane, without mentioning that one of them was Bane.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: He believes himself to be the heroic interrogator of very bad men. He's truly a Red Shirt.
