How could Nolan write Dawes with Holmes in mind? What did he want her in that movie for?
Katie Holmes wasn't Christopher Nolan's choice; she was imposed on him by the studio from the get go. WB had found out that a demographic remained impervious to these superhero films: teenage girls. Therefore they tried to lure this audience by casting an actress which starred in a popular teen TV series (Dawson's Creek).
