Those guys over at Slash Film have gotten even more SPOILERS for you from the upcoming “The Dark Knight”. As they say in their piece, and we reiterate here, none of these are confirmed, so take them for what they are. Also, apparently “The Dark Knight” is shooting under the fake title of “Rory’s First Kiss”. Some of the spoilers include scenes with Harvey Dent, the fake Batman (what is up with the fake Batman?), and a new character named Reese. Although curiously, no mention of Anthony Michael Hall’s character anywhere…
Here are the scenes Slash Film listed:
* Harvey Dent reveals himself to be Batman at a wild press conference at Superior Court Dent.
* The National Guard patrols through downtown Gotham.
* At Wayne Enterprises, a new character named Reese (played by Joshua Harto) tries to blackmail Lucius Fox using Batman’s identity.
* Bruce Wayne discusses his plans for Lau (played by Chin Han) with Lucius Fox. But the real question is, who is Lau?
* Someone breaks in to the Wayne Enterprises’ Research and Development, and Fox is notified.
* Jim Gordon explains “just enough” to get Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) to issue search warrants. For what, we don’t know.
* Jim Gordon tells Commissioner Loeb (played by Colin McFarlane) that his life is threatened, Loeb drinks to that.
* Harvey Dent promises the Mayor a crime-free 18 months right before a fake Batman hits the Mayors Office window.
* A fake Batman hangs from the flagpole outside City Hall.
* Jim Gordon tries to get Reese out out of the street entrance of a tv studio, but an angry mob appears. Bruce Wayne serves as a distraction. I wonder what Reese was doing on TV? May-be he was there to reveal Batman’s identity? But if so, why would Bruce Wayne help him out? The actor playing Reese (Joshua Harto) looks pretty young. May-be he’s an up-and-coming reporter who somehow figured out Batman’s true identity? But this still doesn’t explain why there is an angry mob awaiting his exit from the building.
So there you go. It looks like Aaron Eckhart’s Harvey Dent is a major player in the movie. Setting up his eventual Two Face reincarnation for the third movie, I’d imagine…
