McAdams likes Knight?

01.29.2007

Rachel McAdams Last week, we gave you an update on THE DARK KNIGHT in which we mentioned that Scientology Hive Mother and Tom Cruise Dungeon Concubine Katie Holmes hadn't been approved of long enough Outside Cage Time to reprise her role as assistant DA Rachel Dawes. So with the race to replace the Thetan Collective Mother now officially on, scooper extraordinaire Shannon recently alerted us to a post over at Batman supersite Batman-on-Film in which they mention that Rachel McAdams may be the frontrunner for the role, though she may decline as the role apparently amounts to little more than a glorified cameo at the beginning of the film and after WEDDING CRASHERS, McAdams doesn't degrade herself with stupid little cameos. This is sure to be the first of a few hundred rumors about casting and we'll be sure to bring you each and every one for you to mull over. THE DARK KNIGHT opens July 18th, 2008.

I thought recasting was a bad idea to begin with, now we find out it's just for a stupid cameo? I agree with just about everyone else on here. If the chartacter absolutely has to be in this film for that cameo, Katie Holmes should do it for continuity reasons. If she won't do it, find some way around it. Don't recast. After the genius of Batman Begins, I thought they'd be smart enough to avoid one of the many downfalls of the other Batman films.

Not a fan of Holmes in any way...but if the role isn't big they should just try and cut it out. Recasting is a terrible idea.

That said, the McAdams thing probably has no grounding, Batman-On-Film hasn't reported a single fact since Heath Ledger was cast.

people thought she would be Catwoman?

PUH-LEEZE!!!!

Anyway, while I'm not a Holmes fan (except for fun time), if it's just a cameo, whats the deal about doing it? I don't give a fuck if you're a nursing incubator or not, you can still squueze in three days of filming for a role that won't happen again.

Oh oh, why'd u get me killed Batman?

Ok so we all think she should not appear. Im down with that too, cause, just like most of the ppl here, I dont like Cruise, or his new child-bearer. However, as much as I hate to admit, I think her character was the very purpose why Bruce chose his path. Plus shes the DA for Gotham. I say I'd be great if she was let go with a mortal wound, dying in Bruce's hands...turning him into a refocused hero. With maybe a new female admirer, someone who'll look very attractive and dumb, but really and

RELEASE DATE?

July 18th? I assume that's 2008, and even then I hadn't heard a solid date.

Is that right?

Also, Rachel McAdams should just be happy she has a career, and take the parts that come her way. its frickin batman.

If the Rachel Dawes character is gonna be in the movie Katie Holmes should be the one who plays it. You gotta have real continuity, whether it's a small role or not. But at the same time the news that it's a glorified cameo is pretty cool to me becuase that means the Dawes character is most likely gonna get killed by Ennis Del Mar,er, The Joker and enrage Batman, so the hunt begins. That's just what I'm thinkin.

SERIOUSLY OMAR

Please keep mocking Katie Holmes. She's a talentless teen tv "star" who permanently looks like she's sucking a lemon. If there's one religion that deserves to be mocked it's Scientology. An to top it off, now she's sucking Tom "Insano" Cruise.

OMG

Seriously OMAR, so you don't like Katie Holmes, but do you really have to offend her that much? I mean let's talk about movies, casting, etc, but what does one religion has to do with it. Give the girl some credit and respect, please. She still has fans who visit this place (and have been for a long time) and they deserve a break as well.

Retarded

Now what is dumb here is bringing the Rachel Dawes character back at all. I mean if it will end up just being some lame cameo at the start of the film the question is: Why even have her in it at all? Not like she needs to return for anything. I mean with the way the last one ended I wouldn't question that character not returning. So to me it just seems lame to bring her back when she plays no real role in the film and when you can't get the same actress to reprise her role. Just write that

The stories I've heard of the role being just a cameo diminishes my hopes of her being Catwoman. As someone who thinks she's the best thing since sliced bread, her as Catwoman would be a dream come true for me. It would be her sexiest role since Mean Girls even though she is a platinum blonde (It's a wig.) femme fatale in her next movie.

McAdams is awesome. Someone who is both good looking and talented (unlike Alba). Of course, Rachel Dawes must die! Batman should fail.

Catwoman!

She'd make a cute catwoman. No Michelle Pheiffer, but fun all the same. Who the hell cares about Rachel Dawes anymore? She served her purpose just fine. Time to move on.

I'm pretty sure Mr. Aviles meant July 18, 2008. Either that or Chris Nolan is planning the greatest cinematic sneak attack ever.

Awesome

Rachel McAdams is one of my favorite actresses ever. She has such versatile roles, and is not typecast at all. She would be perfect. Also, I hate Katie Holmes, so this will be a GREAT new breath of air.

To the person under me: I think we can both assume that since it hasn't really begun filming, that it will come out July 18th, 2008! Come on....use your brain
