Maggie to Take Over For Katie in Batman

The whole Gyllenhaal-Saarsgaard clan (minus Jake - boo) including Maggie's parents braved the cold weather to lunch at the Spotted Pig in NY this week. Rumor has it that Maggie is set to reprise Katie Holmes' role in the next Batman flick, The Dark Knight. As you know, Katie dropped out of the film due to scheduling conflicts with her Queen Latifah project, Mad Money. While we'll miss Katie in the film, Maggie seems like a great fit. It would definitely be a non-indie movie for her that we would welcome. Can't wait to see what she has in store for Batman!

Katie's ruined for anything. I can't imagine her in any movie now.

I actually loved the last Batman movie!! Can't wait for this one to come out but I have to agree with the others who said Rachel would have been a better fit for the role! I mean Maggie is a great actress and all but I don't think she's the typical hot leading lady!

I think she'll be great.

dude- she may be a good actress (who knows- i've never seen anything she's in), but i can't see anyone taking her seriously as ANYONE's love interest in something like Batman. All the Batman girls have been gorgeous. Can this chick compare to the likes of Michelle Pfieffer? Katie may be a bad actress but she's pretty. Maggie is fug as all getout. I agree with Michael from D-listed- she's like a brunette Kiki Dunst.

p.s. I wish Cillian Murphy could be in the film again somehow, so dreamy.

Katie Holmes is a terrible actress, completely boring. Maggie is amazing and adorabl. 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. 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.

:? This bit totally threw me. Why would Maggie Gylllllennnnhhhhhaaaaaaal (however the hell you spell it) want to be in a Batman movie!?!?!? She has all sorts of serious acting cred and a cool, quirky repertoire of films. I think Jessica Alba would have been a better replacement.

While Katie did suck in Batman and while not doing the sequel is a ridiculous Cruise Control mistake.. I am not sure Maggie is the right replacement. Don't get me wrong..I love her and she is incredibly talented(huge fan of Scretary, Sherrybaby, even Donnie Darko and other roles)..but Rachel would have been a better fit I think. I am interested to see how it plays out. ______________________________________________ Dream Vacation = Positano/Amalfi Coast, Italy

i never would have though of that but i can deff picture rachel mcadams in the role! i read it article a while ago about the extradionary difference in payment that katie is getting from taking the other role, like she took a huge downstep in a paycheck so at this point im not too sure what she's trying to "achieve as an actress" since it doesn't seem to be about the money..

I thought for sure Katie's career would skyrocket since she became Tom's bot-girl (like both Nicole's and Penelope's). Guess he has a little more control over this one (perhaps he had the brain chip upgraded).

I'm not sure how i feel about Maggie being in the movie, i love the batman comics. yay! but Katie sucked so bad! she is what i hated the most in Batman Begins. but i agree with whoever said it, Rachael McAdams would be fantastic. she'd be better than both of them.

Maggie's a great choice to replace Katie Holmes. That role is for someone who's really down to earth and passionate. Katie was just a tad too cool to pull that off, even then - pre-Tom

Here is a thought, maybe they should give up on the whole Batman thing!! The movies never seem to be any good, IMO.

I agree with the first poster. Rachael McAdams would've been awesome. She's so versatile.
