Due to "scheduling conflicts," Katie Holmes is unable to reprise her role as Batman's love interest in The Dark Knight, the sequel to Batman Begins. Instead, Maggie Gyllenhaal will most likely step in to play D.A. Rachel Dawes.
Darling of the independent movie scene, she seems like a slightly bizarre pick for this blockbuster role. Still weirder, however, will be watching handsome Heath Ledger play The Joker.
What do you think about this news? Does Maggie with her big, goofy grin seem like a good pick to play Batman's lady?
