Gyllenhaal Replaces Holmes in Batman Sequel

Now, that's more like it.

Latino Review, which scooped the casting of Heath Ledger as The Joker in the upcoming sequel to Batman Begins, is reporting that Maggie Gyllenhaal will take over the part of Assistant District Attorney Rachel Dawes. Katie Holmes murdered the (very well written) part in the original.

Also, Aaron Eckhart has been cast as Rachel's new boss, Gotham District Attorney Harvey Dent. In the comics, Dent is a close friend & ally of Batman's who later becomes Two-Face, arguably the most interesting heavy in Batman mythology. (It's unknown if Dent becomes Two-Face *in* this film, or if they're introducing him to set up Part 3.)

When I read the headline, I immediately thought Jake Gyllenhaal. "Well, that will put a whole new spin on the relationship..."

As for Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent...yummy. I've had a crush on Aaron since I saw IN THE COMPANY OF MEN.
