Just a quick bit of confirmed casting news. This rumor has been running rampant for a LONG time, but finally some legitimate confirmation comes from Variety today. The news is that Maggie Gyllenhaal (most recently seen in a great role in Stranger Than Fiction) will replace Katie Holmes (Tom Cruise's woman) as Rachel Dawes in the Batman Begins sequel titled The Dark Knight. I'm probably alone on this, but I liked Katie Holmes, however Gyllenhaal is a very fine replacement. We'll see in July of '08.
