Aaron Eckhart: No Batman Begins 3 for Two-Face

With all the hullabaloo surrounding who will be the featured villain (or villains) in the inevitable “Batman Begins 3”, and who will be playing them (really? Cher as Catwoman? Man, someone was on crack that day), it’s easy to forget about Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face, who joined the Joker in menacing Gotham City in “The Dark Knight”. So what’s the deal with Two-Face? Well, if I told you that, I would be REVEALING the ending of “The Dark Knight”, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, I would suggest leaving now.

Okay, so you’re still here…

There seems to be an issue about Harvey Dent’s fate at the end of “The Dark Knight”. Did he or didn’t he die? This is a comic book movie, after all, and death isn’t always guaranteed. And if he didn’t die, is he destined to return in “Batman Begins 3”?

CHUD has the word from Two-Face himself:

“He’s dead.”

Aaron Eckhart didn’t even let me finish my question about the controversy that has been rippling through the Batfan community the last couple of months, about whether or not Harvey Dent might be back for Batman 3. It’s completely official: Two Face is dead.

He admitted that he had asked Christopher Nolan the same thing when making the film, and the response was the same: “I asked Chris if there was a chance of coming back. ‘No way,’ he said. ‘He’s toast.'”

Oh well. He’s dead. Stick a fork in him.

Hello … Riddler? Penguin? Bane?

Cher as Catwoman?
