While there are some of you out there who have come to believe that Maggie Gyllenhaal is playing a new interest for Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight, think again.

Maggie steps in as Katie Holmes replacement to play Rachel Dawes; the same romantic interest we saw in Batman Begins.

The Dark Knight's New Rachel

Quickly touching upon her role, Maggie Gyllenhaal stopped in with to discuss The Dark Knight.

Is your Batman character a damsel in distress?
There are moments of that. Chris Nolan, the director, would joke about how I had to resign myself to being a little bit of a damsel in distress but he pushed me in other ways to make her a powerful character. I play a lawyer and have real relationships with the people I’m interacting with in the movie. She’s very smart and a real rounded person. Of course, if you’re the girl in Batman, you’re going to be a damsel in distress to some extent but she’s a really great character. So many people I play are a mess; Rachel’s really clear about what’s important to her and unwilling to compromise her morals, which made a nice change.

That's really all she has to say on the role, but does go forward with discussing why she enjoys filming sex scenes. Interested? Then go here.

The Dark Knight opens to theaters on July 18, 2008.
