I think the confusion's coming from this article with a quote from Maggie and a separate thing from BOF, haven't heard Maggie talk about anyone but her character and Nolan

Quote:
http://uk.movies.ign.com/articles/802/802245p1.html

Oscar nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal is currently shooting her role as Asst. D.A. Rachel Dawes, Bruce Wayne's love interest, in The Dark Knight, a role that she took over from Katie Holmes. She recently took time out of her busy schedule to talk about her career and her experience thus far working on director Christopher Nolan's sequel to Batman Begins.

In an interview with Britian's The Guardian Unlimited, Gyllenhaal said, "Doing Batman has shocked me at every turn. When I started, I thought, 'Well, it's a huge movie, I'll just do my best to put what I can into it.' But, in fact, they've been really hungry for my ideas, for my views. It's great! They've been asking for more!"

The Dark Knight is currently filming in Chicago, where spy reports on the shoot have been popping up online on almost a daily basis. Now Batman-on-Film.com has posted an insider report on what was slated to be shot yesterday.

BoF's scooper claims that Friday's shoot required Christian Bale to "film scenes as his Bruce Wayne character with Rachael and in the suit as Batman." There would also reportedly be an interaction between a Gotham Police S.W.A.T. unit and Batman, and Gary Oldman's Lt. Gordon was also on hand.

The most interesting tidbit, however, was the following: "Anthony Michael Hall is not someone created for the film (like 'Rachel Dawes'). His character is from the comic books and is rather well known. I know you don't do spoilers, so let's just say he seems to be good, but is really bad, or it could be the other way around -- it's quite the 'mystery.' The fans will definately [sic] get a kick out of his appearance in the film!"

So who do you think Hall plays? Let us know by leaving a comment below!

Again - I don't think either are possible.

There is no room in this movie for another lawyer, and nor do I think they would want to really develop another cop at this point and time in the franchise - Jimbo still needs some growing.

I also simply do not buy him playing a Batman-like Homemade wannabe.
these are, of course, merely opinions. obviously, Nightwing can be done without having Robin before him. obviously, there is room in the movie for another lawyer and another cop. it's as simple as writing the part into the script. there's a difference between what you want or don't want to see versus what can or can't be done.

It could be a lesser known character, seeing as Fans will get a kick out of it.

Most superhero movies have reporters in them. Newsman Vic Sage (the Question) could fill that role. Think about it, he could be covering a story on Batman, and be inspired to fight crime because of it.
Maybe he gets his pseudoderm from Lucius Fox instead of Tot Rodor?

Well, my guess has been Mike Engel, the TV host, AMH seems to play the a**hole quite well. His involvement with Freeman is him being on the financial segment of the show

I just can't find a well known character that would really work with Wayne/Batman AND Fox. I want to say maybe Thomas Elliot is a possibility that I don't think we've considered. Forgetting the fact that he was Hush in the Hush story arc, he is farily important and would be close to Wayne for sure. Maybe they'll make him Batman's personal medic, who works in collaboration with Fox to design the new Batsuit after Wayne suffers injury due to the restrictions of the BB suit. Also, the medic thing could come into play pending the Batmobile blow up isnt a decoy used by Batman to fake his death. Just some thoughts. If anyone else has thought of Thomas Elliot before this, I apologize for takiing credit.

Haha yeah it's quite a stretch I admit. I just am trying to find something that wont clog up the story further. I know I've said it before, but I really don't want another Spiderman 3 mistake to happen. AMH's role had better be damn important for it to be kept this secret. If we were going by TLH, Vernon Fields sounds logical, but he wouldnt be around Wayne and Fox that much. I dunno, maybe he is Riddler, because this is starting to become as much of a friggin mind game as the exams in my college Psychology classes

1) it hasn't been reported that he plays a well-known character. AMH hasn't said it, and no cast member has said it. it's just a rumor, and one that hasn't been confirmed. 2) he has stated that he's playing a good guy.

I was under the impression that it's been reported that his character is a well known one from the comics, not another Rachel Dawes-esque creation.

^ lol


I'm still betting on Nigma replacing Vernon Fields as Dents assistant. He's brilliant...but corrupt, working for Maroni. A twist that combines characters like BB

That's what I thought too. After work today, im going to search online for interviews with the cast that they've done in the past month or two. I want to fully find out if it's true or not.

Nightwing being done without Robin is the same as Batman being done without the death of Martha and Thomas Wayne - or Superman not being from Krypton. So yes, it could be done - however it won't be.

If The Dark Knight includes a minor role from a newsman - I demand it be Clark Kent or Lois Lane.

You can't do Thomas Elliot correctly without flash backs. Guy Lewis is not in this film

That's it! It may not be fact because it's only from a pooper scooper, but my money is on him playing an existing character from the comics..............that is if he's not playing the Falafel assistant.
