    Also, there's a new enlarged picture of Hulme which was posted in the other thread. I'm sure some of you saw it, here it is but slightly bigger.

    I'd love to see Ms. Kyle in one of Nolan's sequels!

    Honestly? I hope to hell she comes back. If nothing else than to get killed off, but I really hate it when characters are skipped over in sequels. I wouldn't mind her taking second to a new female lead, and become a supporting female, even. Just as long as she came back.

    I agree completely. I hate when they leave out the female lead and not even say why or give a reason, like Vicki Vale just missing for no apparent reason in Batman Returns. I think they should keep Katie Holmes as Rachel and kill the character off or have her leave Gotham. If Katie Holmes can't return then just give a good reason why she's gone although that won't be as good.

    I want to see a slimmed down Hulme as the Joker. His face just looks too pudgy in the pic and I imagine his body is the same or bulky, which I could do without either.

    I wholeheartedly agree with both of you . . . bring the beeyitch back and kill her in the first scene!! How [email protected]$$ of an opening would that be!!?? The Joker just kills dat @$$ as an opener!! It's not like she has any real roles lined up, as far as I know . . . only thing is, with her new high-profile lifestyle, she probably wouldn't be open to a cameo that just kills her off

    If Rachel is not going to be in the sequel, it should be explained why not, on the other hand I like the news of the possiblity of Selina.

    If Holmes finally decides not to reprise the role, what do you think of a possible recast? Just because she may not return doesn't mean the character can't show up again in the franchise. Not to mention alot of people didn't like the choice of Holmes when she was cast in BB.

    Eh. Not a fan of it. While Holmes wasn't liked by alot of people, I personally thought she did good with what she had. Though, I guess... if they can get someone who looks enough like her and is a good actress at the same time, it wouldn't be that big of a deal.

    Though I'm not a huge fan of it, I'll accept it if she looks alot like Holmes, but I'll still have her killed off early on.

    Just an option, since I too think it's a bad idea to completely get rid of the character without a proper explanation why or where she went off to. If memory serves, when the Holmes rumor first came about back in November, Jett named a potential replacement. Jennifer Connelly was his pick.





    Not too early.



    You're the one who sent that image in?

    Jennifer Connely would've been absolutely perfect for the role. If they had used her in the first place, with Begins. But since Holmes' image and youth was already established in the role, her replacement should represent both of those, at the very least. (If she's to be replaced at all, anyway...)

    Seriously, though, Connely would've eliminated most of the complaints towards Begins, I feel, had she taken the role of Rachel.

    Of course not, probably in the first hour though:O

    I also agree that Jennifer would have been a perfect Rachel.

    This news is both good news and bad news - IMO. I like continuity - so the thought of Rachel not in BB2 is a little sad. The good news is that one of my favorite back characters could get into the action faster than I though, and there will be no more Katie Holmes.

    That being said:
    Natalie Portman IS Selina Kyle....

    Yeah, Jett used my real name as it was on my Hotmail address.

    The pic was scannned in from the May Edition of Empire Magazine (Australian Version)

    The movie Hulme is in is called Macbeth and is directed by the same guy that did the Australian film Romper Stomper (with Russell Crowe).

    I'll scan the whole article in after I get my morning coffee.

    I want Katie Holmes to return. At least the character. a lot of people are against this but i think her situation can lead to good plot points.

    1.) She has no Batman history and serves no purpose to continuity that means she's expendable and should die. Its good for a hero to have some sense of loss. I feel they dont tackle the death of the Waynes good enough. They use it as a starting point of batman, but on emotional level they dont use it enough. Only when Liam Neeson was involved was their any real emotional level. Plus the court case in hindsight.
    2.) She knows Batman and Bruce are the same person which puts her in danger and makes her valuable to villains. She would prolly have obvious ties to bats since she works in the DA office and quite possibly the new DA.

    I agree completely with this post, well said.

    Exactly.

    Kate Beckinsale has always been my personal favorite choice.

    Well, all I can say is that you've contributed a great deal in the search for a decent picture of Hulme. I can see that pic being used for alot of manips, and I'd appreciate it if you could pm it to me.

    Portman would have to be third on my list.
