Maggie Gyllenhaal to Star in "The Dark Knight"?

by | March 12, 2007 | Comments

All the talk from a few weeks ago regarding Katie Holmes’ rumored non-involvement in the forthcoming "Batman Begins" sequel — and what it meant for Rachel Dawes, her character in the first film — seems to have been more or less on the money. Variety is reporting that Maggie Gyllenhaal, most recently seen in "Sherrybaby" and "Stranger Than Fiction," is in final talks to take over as Christian Bale’s childhood friend/love interest in "The Dark Knight," currently set for a summer 2008 release.

The last set of "Batman" films became a revolving door for the actors wearing the cowl — Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, and George Clooney had all worn black latex before the series’ ignominous end in 1997’s "Batman & Robin" — so it would be sort of fitting if a different ingenue stepped into Rachel Dawes’ pumps for each new "Batman" movie. Who’s next — Rachel McAdams? Jessica Biel? Bea Arthur? The possibilities are endless!
