Same Bat-Time, Different Bat-Actress

Posted on


Maggie_l_1Maggie Gyllenhaal (pictured, right) is reportedly in final talks to take over the role of Rachel Dawes (played in Batman Begins by Katie Holmes, left, who dropped out of the sequel earlier this year) in director Christopher Nolan’s next Batman film, The Dark Knight. I’m assuming we’re all in agreement that Gyllenhaal’s intensity (with a side of quirky vulnerability) makes her a better match for Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne?

Answer that question, then tell us which roles you’ve always wanted recast in other films. The line for  Superman Returns‘ Lois Lane (Zooey Deschanel instead of Kate Bosworth) starts behind me.
