Two-Face is Dead!
Amidst wild rumors for Dark Knight 3’s casting process (think Cher as Catwoman), actor Aaron “Two Face” Eckhart gave us some bat-closure on a few of the many bat-rumors. So are we going to see the former Gotham City DA’s pretty deformed mug again? Dark Knight spoilers ahead.
In a press conference Eckard was doing for Towelhead, the press tried to squeeze out a denial from the actor about whether his Dark Knight character is toast in the next film. Is it possible that Two-Face survived his apparent demise in the end? Eckhart told Coming Soon that he was sorry to say Harvey Dent is DOA:
Q: Is Harvey Dent alive?
Aaron Eckhart: No. He is dead as a door nail.
Q: So he’s not coming back?
Eckhart: He ain’t coming back baby!
Q: I was hoping he would.
Eckhart: No. I asked Chris [Nolan] that question and he goes, “You’re dead” before I could even get the question out of my mouth. “Hey Chris, am I?” “You’re dead!” Alright, cool.
Q: That’s not a problem in comic book movies. You could still come back.
Eckhart: I think in contract negotiations it’s a problem.
Q: So you were never signed on for another film?
Eckhart: No, I’m not coming back. I think unfortunately, Heath [Ledger] was supposed to go on and that didn’t work out. I’m nobody. I’m a cog. I have no say over this sort of stuff. I’m sure that there’s so many other characters that they could whip together. I heard Angelina Jolie was going to be Catwoman or something like that. I thought that was a great idea. I’d like to be in that one.
