Hey, it's not officially a day in the life of Cinematical if we don't have any Dark Knight rumors to share with you, especially now that Katie Holmes has dropped out, leaving folks scrambling to find a replacement. As most of you know by now, the first name to pop out of the post-Holmes hat was Rachel McAdams ... which, honestly, was completely fine by me. I dig McAdams, for real. However, the internets are never happy with only one name, and so two more ladies have slid into contention by way of a few super top secret tipsters alerting sites like Latino Review and Cinema Blend.
The latest names rumored to be up for the part of Rachel Dawes -- are you ready -- Emily Blunt and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Not only that, but apparently Aaron Eckhart has come out of nowhere and is now the front-runner to play Harvey Dent. Wow. Okay, let's analyze: Personally, I'd rather stare at a black spot on my wall than watch Emily Blunt in anything, let alone a Batman flick. So, in my book, she's out. Now, Gyllenhaal would be interesting. She's got cute, cool and confident all wrapped up in one big adorable package.
And, if it were between her and McAdams, I think I'd have to go with Gyllenhaal ... if only because she has this ability to melt my heart within the first five minutes of appearing on screen. Secret big-screen crushes aside, what do you think about Aaron Eckhart playing Harvey Dent (a.k.a. Two Face)? He certainly has the acting chops, but is he capable of going the nutty route?
