Even though I consider Maggie to be the better actress, yes, I would have preferred they brought back Holmes. While I have enjoyed Gyllenhall in other films, she is by far the weakest link of The Dark Knight. I'm not saying Katie would have done any better. But at least you would have had consistency between the two films. There is a disconnect between Bruce and Rachel in the second film. And I think that is largely due to the fact that even though it is the same character, with the new actress it just didn't feel like they had the history that had been established in the previous film.
