I think a lot of these people would be saying different things about Katie Holmes if not for Tom Cruise screwing up her life. I personally liked her in Batman Begins and thought it was a great movie. I don't think Maggie has the right style for it. I have a lot of trouble picturing her pulling it off. You have to think reversely about this when it comes to actors...You can't tell a cover by it's book!

it might work, though, if somewhere in the plot line, Batman goes blind...

dear lord. isn't this obvious? these are BATMAN films...not little indie things...Batman girls need to be gorgeous actresses. Katie is pretty, but she's not Batman gorgeous and she can't act. I don't know if Maggie can act or not but you cannot deny her fugness. It's just not believable for her to be a love interest the likes of Michelle Pfieffer, Kim Basinger, and Nicole Kidman? Batman chicks have always been smoking...Katie barely smolders and Maggie is just ashes man. It might be superficial, but these are fun, superficial movies.

bilson is too young people. the actress should be in her late twenties or early thirties to make sense. we don't want another superman on our hands.although everything we say is purely theoretical anyway!

Aside from the first Batman movie this last one was the only other worth watching! Christian Bale is a total hottie! I don't think Maggie was the right choice either! Either Rachel's would have been a good fit though! Mcadams and Bilson are both beautiful and could be leading ladies anyday!

Ooh good call on Rachel McAdams! I also think she would've been awesome in The Devil Wears Prada.

I like her as an actress but i really can't see her being right for this role either.......

I love Maggie, but really can't see her in this type of film. She seems to go for more quirky roles. But she is such a phenomenal actor that I can see why any director would love to work with her.

Katie Holmes couldn't act her way out of a paper bag, so it'll be nice to have someone opposite Christian Bale who actually matches his acting ability. Plus, despite what so many of you are saying, I think she's adorable. Yes, Rachel McAdams would have been fabulous, but I think Maggie will do a great job too. It's a little bit strange to think of her doing this huge blockbuster film, but I'm even more excited to see it now.

Maggie is sooo fug, how could she possibly be a love interest for Christian Bale? Katie Holmes is a terrible actress

These movies are very mature, dark, intense films for comic book movies, jennifer76. Very very very Batman .. very un Batman, Forever. I don't understand how people can say the first Batman film was the best, there wasn't anything to do with Batman in those movies! That is why Michael Keaton left! Katie Holmes is a terrible actress, completely boring. Maggie is amazing and adorable. I don't doubt Christopher Nolan's ability to use her properly for a second and I know that she and Christian Bale will be smokin' together. Christian plays Bruce Wayne as more mature and deep than the previous protrayers of this character have so, perhaps a nice switch up to the love interest is needed as well? I believe they'll be a more mature Bruce and love interest (who knows if they'll keep using Rachel Dawes) than Katie and Christian were. There wasn't any chemistry between the two of them. If anything, it will be interesting to watch Maggie.

I love her as an actress, but I dunno...I kinda feel like this is selling out. :? She does such great movies! Why would she do a comic book movie!?!?

i'm sure she's great and all, but i just don't see her as pretty. i think it's because of those bulldog-lines on her face..and because her mouth is set in a frown. she reminds me of susan may pratt's evil, really annoying ballerina wannabe mother in center stage :-(

Ooh Rachel Bilson might be good but she'd look so young compared to Christian Bale. What about someone like Bridget Moynahan (post-baby)?

I honestly thought Katie's acting almost ruined the first movie so I'm glad that she's passing it up. Maggie is a waaay better actress but she fits indie roles better. I don't really see her in a huge mainstream role.
