Maggie Gyllenhaal To Play Rachel Dawes In The Dark Knight

Looks like the DC gods chose today to rain upon the earth many interesting new developments about next year’s Batsie adventure The Dark Knight. First up, Maggie Gyllenhaal is in final talks to star opposite Christian Bale as Rachel Dawes. Katie Holmes, as you may grudgingly remember, played Rachel in 2005’s Batman Begins, but dropped out of the project earlier in the year. Joining them are Heath Ledger as the Joker, Morgan Freeman, Michael Cain, Gary Oldman and Aaran Eckhart.

There’s also this little tidbit. According to a source initially reported by Aint It Cool News, Batman “changes his suit halfway through the film – and its a major plot point as to why and how this happens.” No details yet on the Joker’s get-up, but there’s certainly no way in hell we’re getting those infamous Bat-nipples again.

Warner Bros. Pictures is planning for a July 18, 2008 release for TDK. Director Christopher Nolan is set to begin filming either in late spring or early summer.

Note: Wasn’t going to post this as whomever plays Rachel Dawes is something I don’t really care about, but any excuse to link to images of beautiful is an excuse to do so in itself. :)
