I'm not happy that Maggie Gyllenhaal is replacing Katie Holmes as Rachel Dawes.
Then you're probably the only one.

I'm a bit disappointed that Katie Holmes decided not to return, but since she is gone, I'm quite happy to have a good actress in the film.
You're going to be disappointed then...because it's Maggie Gyllenhaal.
All a matter of opinion, I suppose. I think Maggie Gyllenhaal is an excellent actress and can stand up with the other acting giants, unlike Katie Holmes who was merely passable and looked pale in comparison to said acting giants.

I just hate the whole idea of recasting and I was hoping this reboot wouldn't fall into that mess like the Burton/Schumacher films did. A lot of people have made comments about Katie being a bad actress or about Gyllenhaal being better, but to me, that doesn't matter as much as keeping the same players.
I understand that, but I have faith in both Christopher Nolan and Maggie Gyllenhaal making it work.
