Maggie joins Batman

03.08.2007

Maggie Gyllenhaal Latino Review reported it back in early February and today Variety confirmed that Maggie Gyllenhaal is, in fact, in final negotiations to join the cast of THE DARK KNIGHT as assistant DA Rachel Dawes, picking up where Prototype Maternal Unit, Theta Class I Katie Holmes left off. The role apparently amounts to little more than a glorified cameo but Gyllenhaal has enough acting chops to put some real chutzpah into the role and erase the memory of Holmes for those of you who felt she was the only taint on an otherwise great film. Rachel McAdams and Emily Blunt were also in contention but the aforementioned chops and chutzpah likely helped Gyllenhaal land the role. She can next be seen in the drama HIGH FALLS.

Why?

Why wasn't this character just killed off or something? It was very unnecessary and brought nothing to the film. Nolan better have a damn good reason why he's bringing her back.

Good.

I used to hate Maggie, for no reason. But after watching her recent films she has definitely grown on me. I actually think she is pretty hott now.

I can't stand her

I can't stand stand Maggie! Her face annoys me everytime I see it. She's just like Kirsten Dunst - I don't understand the appeal.

Retarded

I still say that character is completely unneeded. That was the most uninteresting part of the story for me in Batman Begins. The way it ended I was just expecting and hoping not so see anymore of her... but now they bring her back and replace the actor. Why? They had better be bulking up that part of the story line or something, otherwise it's just stupid and pointless.

good

This is good. I honestly didn't have much of a problem with Katie Holmes in Batman Begins, BUT, out of all of the actors in that movie, she was the weakest, and if she HAS to be replaced, then Maggie Gyllenhaal can definitely pull it off.
