    In the new Batman movie Aaron Eckhart, the actor from Thank You for Smoking was just announced as Dent in the next Batman movie. I think this is great casting.

    Wow, the thought of him playing Harvey Dent never crossed my mind but that is a great choice! Wow they never seem to disappoint when casting.

    I read the other day that it's finally been confirmed that Holmes won't return as Rachel Dawes.

    Yup. Apparently she choose to do a buddy comedy with Queen Latifah. Think 48 Hours or Beverly Hill Cops, but with chicks.

    Yeah, that is a MUCH better project to do than Batman :rolleyes2 

    Oh well that's fine, the movie will be just fine without her I am sure.

    I've never understood the whole "scheduling conflicts" thing with actors.

    I mean, your agent and everyone under the sun has an idea of when this film would need you. With as badass as Batman Begins was, you'd think this would be a gimmie of a project, unproven projects be damned.

    I think he's a great casting choice for Dent.


    Really not all that bumbed out about Holmes not coming back.

    Is Dawes' character coming back at all? That was the only downside of that movie. I mean, she's hot, but I just don't want a romantic angle with Batman.

    Yeah, hopefully that means this will be the first Batman movie without a fucking Vicky Vale.

    Well, I certainly won't miss her, except out of consistency, which unfortunately i am kind of a stickler for.

    Best way to explain the recast:

    "Bruce! Thanks for paying for all the surgery! That car wreck was horrible."

    Too bad they didn't go with the off-screen death. I really didn't see much of a point of the character. She felt shoe-horned into the movie.

    C'mon though, we can all admit - those diamond-cutter shirts she sported in half the movie will be missed.

    YAY!

    I can't stand Katie Holmes.

    She was the only thing I didn't like about Batman Begins!
