Talia was (originally supposed to turn into) Clayface?

Was looking for interesting stuff inside BAC's files, and I certainly did.

Those textures look too much like Talia, and look at the title - "Clayface_Talia_Body"

I even have proof that it's Clayface - here's the Joker version.

This just confims my Talia-was-Clayface theory. Or makes it even more impossible, your choice. =)

I was able to extract the textures and put them on a XNALara model.

I wonder what made them change there minds. Just imagine where the series would have went if that had been the case.

Batman and "Talia" share a kiss, and then she turns into Clayface. Yup, just try to imagine that.

Oh wow, excellent find! That would have made for such an uncomfortable scene :lol: Hmm, perhaps the Talia that visits Joker in the final fight in the Steel Mill was meant to be Clayface, and when it's revealed she's the latter in the Monarch Theatre, the real Talia comes and attempts to save Batman?

It seems more likely to me that Talia was meant to be kidnapped by the Joker and then killed, with Clayface impersonating her and revealing himself when Batman came to save her.

The problem with that storyline, of course, is where the cure is considering that Talia would have had it.

It would have likely meant that Clayface or Joker would have killed or kidnapped Talia by the end of the story and as a result, Joker would have had his hands on the cure. Obviously if they went with a Clayface Talia, the endgame story would have been a lot longer and more complicated.

Can't be any worse than Batman and Robot Talia doing more than sharing a kiss in that scrapped Justice League Mortal movie :oldyella:
